    Can someone tell me how to switch back and forth between the stock launcher and Go? On my Incredible it asked at each boot up which launcher to use, but with my Maxx it defaults to Go.

    Thanks!

    Homesmack and home switcher are good.

    Installed Homesmack, but can't figure out how to use it to switch back from GoLauncher to stock launcher. Can you clue me in?

    It allows you to select default for the home button, and home replacements you have installed. Simply click the icon to open the app and select which home replacement you would like to use check the box to make it permanent so the next time you hit the home soft key you stay on that current launcher.

    It also allows you to easily select default for the search soft key as well. Hope any of this makes sense.

    Thanks, hasbrobot, but I finally gave up. Was able to swich between GoLauncher annd stock homescreens, but it always defaulted to GoLauncher whenever I pressed the soft homescreen button. Maybe one of these days I'll fiddle with it again, but for now I've uninstalled Go, and I'll stick with stock. Thanks again, though, for your help.

    If you go into Settings>Applications>Find GoLauncher and click on Clear Defaults as pictured below...

    View attachment 50477

    I know you have already uninstalled it but just in case you want to go back to it. Clearing that will stop your "Home" button from using GoLauncher as default.

    No problem at all happy to help, I love using GoLauncher but there are tons of settings to check and keep track of.
