    I downloaded Helix, and cannot get it to run. Someone suggested I clear the defaults, and I did, but still cannot get it to run..

    what am I doing wrong? when I downloaded Home++, it ran right away, I just didnt like it...

    How do you mean you can't get it to run? Is it not showing up in the window to chose your home when you press home?

    Couldn't hurt anything. You could also try downloading home switcher from the market and see if it can recognize helix. I've installed helix a few times with no issue...

    Try downloading an app called "Home Switcher." It should help in a couple of ways. First, if Helix does not show up, it means you haven't downloaded it correctly. Second, it will allow you to switch back and forth easily between home screen launchers while you decide which one you prefer.

    Ooops...I see Johnny Kansas beat me to the punch. :)
