Re: A500 Home Screens and Screen Shots
Well its a combination of using both ADWLauncher and Desktop Visualizer from the Android Market. I also ended up downloading the DVRImageCrop addon for Desktop Visualizer which cost me around $3.

Once you get your size set up, you can start putting in your icons using the desktop visualizer widgets. The reason I bought the DVRImageCrop addon is because I was able to go out and search for my own images to use as icons and DVRImageCrop works with Desktop Visualizer to crop the images to the size you need for your icon and make them look good in the space you want to use them in. For example, since I wanted to go with mostly and android them for my icons, I would search terms such as "Android Camera", or "Android Facebook" or "Android Youtube" Once I found and image that I liked and would work, I would save it to my tablet. Then just use desktop visualizer to crop it and set it.
All in all, you just need to play around with it and figure out what settings you like. I learned it from someone on the xda boards and all though he posted an icon pack that he used with his, I didn't really care for them and just went out and found my own. Also, my weather widgets is from Beautiful Widgets on the market also.
Hope this helps,
