    I happily donated and tried to download version 1.3Beta. I got an error message on the droid that said "Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone."

    I am running DroidMod and have not had this problem before.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    The version in the video is Helix2 V.07Beta. You also need to be on 2.1.

    Is it recommended to remove everything off of Helix1, if I'm going to be using helix2? I already did it, but I'm just wondering if it matters.

    Not bad, I like the ability to hide the notification bar.

    This is the url for Helix versions: Donators' Repo ยป Home

    I was able to download Helix 2 v7 beta2 for free there. I donated after I got it working on UD9.8.

    For me, the reason is that I love the way it switches from screen to screen. I don't love the 3d launcher, but if I'm on the 7th screen ( all the way to the right) and I double-tap to bring up previews and then select the 1st screen (all the way to the left) it snaps to that screen very quickly, without the laggy animation of the original Helix.

    Optimally, I would LOVE to have that snappy-ness of Helix 2 home screens along with the fast scrolling of the non-3D original Helix app drawer. But, with 7 home screens, I don't need to use the app drawer much.
