    Anyone got any input on this? Sholes.info says no more 2.1 launcher. Anyone checked this out yet?

    I'm torn... I love how much faster and smoother this version runs.. But, I do miss the 3D app tray and home button (which Ashkev on this site customized to a Michigan emblem for me)...

    Sholes 2.0.5 is excellent!

    I am really pleased with this ROM. Extremely stable, fast, and unbelievably easy to install. Highly recommended. Personally do not miss the 2.1 launcher, too unstable on my droid.

    I have used extensively Bugless Beast and Smoked Glass, and while they are both great, prefer the Sholes ROMs. Also highly recommend K9 email. Check their downloads website for the latest versions.

    Please support the developer(s) of your choice. It is awesome to have these options.

    Does this mod still have 5 screens, or do we lose that with the 2.1 launcher?

    heres what you do if you really want to run the new sholes..
    go back to your backed up nandroid or w/e it was, for that launcher....install Astro file manager...back up your launcher onto the SD card

    install the new sholes... install your custom launcher with Astro :p

    As long you know the 2.1 launchers dont play well with the droid... :)

    2.0.5 is the best ROM I have used to date! The Sholes team did a great job.

    I'm overclocked @ 1.1ghz and it's running really smooth. 0 FC's so far, and I've had this installed for ~8 hours now.

    OMG so much better.

    I rooted and installed 2.03 using SMU a few days ago, with SetCPU running at 800MHz. The 2.1 launcher was pretty, but I wasn't really seeing any performance increase and got a lot of force closes- not stable enough for me to feel comfortable with.

    Upgraded to 2.05 today and it's rocksolid, and the UI *flies*. It was a great call to return to the 5-screen version of the old launcher, it's much much more responsive than the hacked 2.1 version. I'm very, very pleased with the performance of my phone now

    I just did a clean wipe out as recommended. Successfully updated to 2.0.5. Now went to Nandroid restore so i can get all my settings, etc.. back. Do i select the "Simple Nandroid restore (latest)", or the "Advanced Nandroid restore"?
