    Say for example I use OpenHome as my default home but I would like a couple features that Helix offers, is it possible to just use a couple of those features and still use openhome? Thanks.

    Let me be a little more specific I guess, lol. I like the icon dock at the bottom of helix but I really like the icons from openhome. Can someone tell me how I can take advantage of both?

    It is possible, but it requires bettercut to get the icons, and an app like homeswitcher.

    You put the icon you want to change on the optional home, either open home or the stock home, and use bettercut to change it. After that, use homeswitcher to change to helix and the new icon will be on the farthest left screen.

    It's possible to use a different home but keep the app drawer from helix? Please help me accomplish this.

    No, it is not.
