    Probably nothing new to report....

    I have been messing around with the smoked glass launcher2.apk from the COW rom. I love the look and the buttons. I have had it installed for about 5 days now

    If I run a static wall paper I can go for about a Day and a half with out a glitch....but eventually I have to do a battery pull or droid self reboot happens.

    If I run a LWP..I can go for about 10 mins or less before it just shuts down.

    Wonder why that happens...could it be because I still have the original launcher.apk installed? Or is it just the simple fact that launcher2 is not intended to run on 2.0.1?

    Running BB 1.1 OCd at 1GHz.

    Whoops: Rebbots = Reboots

    Happened to me too. I had both BB 1.1 OCd @ 800. and DroidMod 1.0 also OCd @ 800. I had non stop reboots. I guess b/c 2.1 Drawer is so buggy and the phone has too many 2.1 apps/programs running on 2.0.1?? who knows . . . .

    There are three things that are notorious for causing problems on almost all droids: 1) Live Wallpapers, 2) Launcher2 and 3) Virus Protections Apps.

    Add virus protection and I bet your phone will explode!!

    Seriously, those two apps are very, very buggy. Many people can not run Live Wallpapers and nobody can run Launcher2 (all right I can not be serious!!). Good luck with that hand grenade!!

    I can not help myself with your thread. Running those two together is like an alcoholic saying, well, I think I'll start smoking.

    Ha!

    Yeah I had read about bugs with launcher2 and with LWPs. I was running LWPs with stock launcher and had no issues....then I was running launcher2 with static wall papers with minor issues...so I said: "Maybe I have :motdroidvert:'The Chosen Droid':motdroidvert: and can run what ever the hell I want!" Apparently my Droid is normal and not sent here to save the universe.

    For now I am sticking with the luancher2 and using normal wallpapers. Live wallpapers were cool but they lost there impact after awhile.

    Glad you didn't take offense at my nonsense. :)

    I used Launcher2 off and on since it became available. I kept hoping someone would make it work on my droid. I really liked it, but my droid simply would not run it correctly. I've finally given up. I've never been interested in Live Wallpapers. But there are a ton of folks that are and I believe they are getting some roms now that will run them.

    Anyway, good luck and have fun.

    Installing Smoked Glass Themes

    Just finished installing the smoked glass 4.5 on my Droid and was wondering does anyone know how to install the themes? (Smoked Glass 2.0) I can't find instructions

    there is no stability if you're using live wallpapers and launcher2 simultaneously.

    each running separately works fine...

    the best combination is 2.0.1 launcher + live wallpapers... only thing you're missing is LWP's interactiveness (is that even a word?)

    If you wanr LWPs to be interactive with 2.0.1 launcher. Use GDE v0.2.8 or higher. As it has added support forLWPs. I'm running DroidMod v1.0, w/ Smoked Glass theme, and Stanc'blk bar (for white clock & font in notifications tab) & OCd @ 800. My phone works great and no crashes/reboots.

    I WAS running DM1.0 with 2.1 launcher and LWP and it was basically unuseable. Locked up and rebooted ever 5 min.

    Went back to stock this morning. I give up. I reaized if I want those features IMHO it will never be on a Droid. N1 in March here I come!

    You can't use roms w/ live wallpapers. You must use gde as it has support for lwps. My phone is running retardedly smooth

    That's not totally accurate...2.1 when released may not have the new launcher or live wp,but I wouldn't say never. Also before thinking its better and just ordering. I would suggest trying the N1 and touching it.

    I have been running AdamZ SmokedGlass5.0 rom all night with launcher2 and livewallpapers and I have not crashed or had a single force close yet. You may want to give that a go and see how it works for you.
