    Hey razor!

    I dunno about the launcher pro or dropbox problems your having. But I had trouble with the new gmail as well.

    To fix it, I used root explorer to go into system/apps and deleted the gmail.apk file. I rebooted, them re-downloaded the new gmail app from the market and all went well.

    As a side note, thanks to the dev of Project Elite, it's excellent!

    Agreed, it's way smooth & responsive.

    I haven't tried launcher pro with it yet and may not. ADW has worked very well for me and I don't seem to get the screen redraws I was getting with launcher pro. Of course, this is just my opinion and our MMV.

    I'd be interested to know if you were able to get the gmail app working though? If you don't have root explorer I'm sure you can manually remove that .apk from your phone using a terminal emulator and some commands that I'm not familiar with! :icon_eek: :)

    i think razor's questions about the system apps have been addressed in the main thread. however, i did want to post about the LP lag/redraw issue. i have had this issue in the past, as well. but, then i stumbled across samsonite801's signature, and here is what it says:

    If you use ADW or LauncherPro and if after using your browser, email or any other apps for awhile, then if you press the 'HOME' button, if it takes forever to redraw your home screen, and you are sick of that HORRIBLE LAG, then try this: In a terminal, type su and enter. Then type echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop and enter. Then reboot. Now evaluate whether or not this fixes your lag. If you want to undo what this command does, simply remove that toggle from: /data/local.prop

    after i input this, my lag/redraw issues for LP just disappeared!! supposedly, there are some other fixes discussed in the launcherpro.com forums, so you can check those out as well.

    I've been lucky with the redraw on this ROM. but I can't install some non system apps like dropbox... it's not letting me install it from the market or update it

    everyone, everywhere, on every rom, has been having problems installing drop box. i don't know if it was an app issue or a mkt issue. maybe try later on, and hopefully they have it resolved...
