    i thought his came with the helix launcher, he might not have renamed it to launcher...

    sorry, not sure what you mean by custom app drawer?

    if it's a metamorph, just change it to helix2.apk (above /system/app inside the .thm file (open in notepad)) and change the folder's name to helix2 instead of launcher2.

    what i mean is that someone changed the little button on the bottom of the homescreen. instead of it being a droid head(im on UD 9.0) someone made it into a yankee baseball

    the easiest thing to do would be to use root explorer to rename helix2.apk to Launcher2.apk...then you should be able to apply the mm. do you have a metamorph theme or did he just give you the picture for it?
