    Based on the website it looks to be a root-only mod to the existing launcher.

    The biggest benefit I see is the helix launcher-esque shortcuts in the bottom bar. But if I wanted that can't I just get helix?

    Considering you have to boot to recovery and flash this, I'd say root only, non market app :)

    I DL it and put it on the sd card. Used Rom manager to install from the sd card. Reboot. It replaces "home"....is cool to work with. Main difference between this and helix is that it lets u put 6 shortcuts at the bottom..also the apps scroll left to right as opposed to up/down. Playing with it...prelim looks good...

    unpack it with 7zip and there is a APK inside.
    Remember to clear defaults!

    it worked for me....once U reboot and unlock it should give u multiple "home" options if it did install correctly. I got "home, launcher, HelixLauncher". I select "home" and it was there.

    Droid life posting ADW

    ADW Launcher Includes SenseUI Homescreens


    On 05.13.10, In Apps, Root (unlock), by Kellex (online)


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The newest launcher to sneak into the Android world packs too many options for me to even attempt to list out. The ADW Launcher sort of found its way into a few forums over the last few days even though it appears to have been in several beta stages on the G1 without the mainstream world knowing. My first impressions are, “Whoa! It does that? And that? Wait…and that too?” This is the most personalize-able (that a word?) launcher I’ve ever seen. A mix of Helix, SenseUI, Samsung Galaxy and so much more makes this thing easily worth an hour of your time.
    Any bad news? Yes. At this time it’s only for rooted users. While I know nothing of developing, this appears to need a couple of tweaks and it could be available for everyone. Maybe once it steps out of beta?
    Features:

    • Side-to-side scrolling in app drawer.
    • Adjust number of columns/rows in app drawer.
    • Persistent apps + hidden app bar.
    • Hide notification bar.
    • Press “home” key and see SenseUI styled screen preview.
    • Up to 7 home screens.
    • Way too many to list.
    *Note 1* – The following instructions are performed using ClockworkdMod Recovery.
    Instructions for installation…
    1. Download this file to the root of your SD card: Version 0.7Beta7 (alt link)
    2. Reboot into recovery. (Power + X)
    3. Select “install zip from sdcard.”
    4. Select “choose zip from sdcard.”
    5. Scroll down and select “ADW.Launcher.0.7….zip.”
    6. After it finishes installing, hit the power button to return one menu.
    7. Reboot your phone.
    8. Choose the “Home” launcher when prompted.
    9. Done!
    Comments or questions?
    *Note 2* – Make sure to donate to the developer if you can. Ander Webbs is his name as far as I can tell, and you can find his dedicated launcher page here.
