    There is a 'beta' one that is more stable. It is only available on the Cyanogen Mod that is available. It is a ERE25 based ROM.

    i really thought i read somewhere that someone posted an .apk somewhere @ alldroid, but he site is messed up right now for some reason, or maybe its my comp but i cant nav anywhere on site, or search. there has to be a 2.1 launcher.apk someone modded , i swear i read it somewhere but had a rom that had it already , and the one i have now seems more buggy than reg one

    Sorry, thats the only one that I know of, you pretty much have to have Cyanogen's Mod for that .apk to work. That is the only Launcher2 I know of that has been modified for distribution. Personally the 2.1 Launcher, as cool as it is, is so buggy I got sick of it and learned to stay away from it.

    Just maybe a Thank you to Unix.punkx for offering a suggestion might help others in determining the problem. At least they might want to respond.

    :D Ha thanks. It would be nice to see a stable working 2.1 Launcher, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Launcher2 Latest Betas

    These are the latest coded 2.1 launchers. They are also the least buggiest. Note I didn't say bug free or stable, I said LEAST buggiest. ;)

    How do you install it?

    I used to just manually add it to the systems/app folder and change to permisions and it would work in the past. Now I get all kind of forced closed messages and i have to reboot into home screen. I too would love this back on this version. V4 works fine. 5-7 not so much.

    There's no such thing as a stable 2.1 launcher on the Droid right now. Less buggy maybe, but not stable by any means.

    If you are referring to the link I posted for the latest betas, you are smoking crack, as thats a Motorola Droid dev forum.
