BetterCut no longer seems to be working...
...was it the update? I haven't used it since I bought the EVO and created my shortcuts. Now all the ones I originally created are still there and working, but I do NOT seem to be able to create any new ones. I just want to create some better icons for the programs I already have.
Any ideas on this? Has anyone used this since the update? Thanks.
It's asking about OPEN HOME. I tried testing "edit shortcut", and it tells me that I have to reinstall BetterCut after installing OpenHome. But how do I do that? Open Home appears to be $4 launcher on the market. I don't want that launcher. Is this connected to the loss of the original "stock launcher" with the update? Is this another of those "hidden losses"?

According to his Market reviews, multiple people have posted that it stopped working after the HTC EVO update. The problem is that I think the update broke something when it lost the original launcher (notice its missing, too?).
And ArkAngel06 I tried just making the shortcut over and over. The shortcut eventually did show up, but NOT with a new ICON picture (which is what I want). I guess it's just time to wait for an update. sigh.

Well, it does seem to be working again. I guess perseverance does pay off. No update came through, it just started working. And it does work with a NEW picture, too. Not sure what the issue was, but its all good now. I guess just keep trying it until it works.
And Kyrumo, I've heard of that issue before. For some reason I don't think they are "editable". Not sure why. Weird.

This is the answer I received from the Dev when I asked about this problem. Too busy to help I suppose.
'Activities' are not the same as 'apps', if you want to create one that always work, you can use the 'other shortcut' options.

I purchased and installed BetterCut on my EVO running 2.2 and more often than not when I try to use a shortcut made with it I get a "The linked program is no longer installed on your phone" error message.
I can go back to the default shortcut and it works fine. I've seen this on a few app. shortcuts i.e. the camera and camcorder, the gallery, the map shortcut, navigation, the Google Places shortcut, etc.
Any ideas why this would be?
