    What is/are the best way(s) to truly customize your phone's layout without having to root? It would be awesome to customize the shortcut keys and the theme of my phone as much as possible without the need of rooting. I've seen countless apps in the Market that allow layout changing like Dx Top, LauncherPro, Widgetsoid, ADW.Launcher, Launch-X, WidgetLocker, etc. Which apps, listed or not, are the best based upon modification capabilities, ease of use, and interface speed and system lag? Thanks for the help :biggrin:

    Replace your launcher, install specialized apps, and download a theme for your launcher. However, this isn't going to *really* give you everything you want. I would try it, though. :)

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    Really? Almost everyone else has noticed a distinct increase in performance compared to stock/Blur on the D2.

    Yea, of know. It's weird. My 's benchmark is dungeon defenders. With the stock launcher, and few widgets, it runs fine. But with adw, it lags
