    shouldn't get in the way as it's a .apk file.

    If anything, when the update rolls around you could uninstall the launcher and just wait for the update. I'm pretty sure the update will still install whether you keep the 2.1 launcher or not.

    I have the 2.1 launcher installed now, but considering there's no for sure release date for 2.1 then this is very nice for now. I don't even know what to do with my two extra screens.

    I noticed that my Droid tends to lag/freeze ever since i installed the 2.1 launcher.

    sometimes scrolling gets stuck and i have to put it into sleep mode and wake it up again.

    Yes I restarted after I installed it too.

    Hey Wicked
    Let me know how well this works.

    I installed it on my Droid a few weeks ago, and it kept crashing, to the point I finally removed it.

    Not sure if this is an updated version, or the same version.

    Please let me know if you have success in getting Laucher to work!

    Thanks
