    Default Possible to disable Sense in 2.2 Update ?

    For the people that have the 2.2 update, is it possible to disable sense ? I love the way Froyo looks without it.

    Install ADW Launcher or Launcher Pro and use one of those as default.

    No. You can not disable Sense on any official Evo software. Never could.

    You can run other home replacements on top of Sense, but not disable it.

    Yes you could. When the EVO came out you could disable sense. Ver 1.47 wouldn't let you do it anymore but the leaked versions that popped up you can disable sense again.

    You could not disable Sense in its entirety. While you may have been able to disable the Sense home screen, Sense was still running in other areas.

    I never understood this myself either.
    Mostly because I couldn't find a single option for it.

    And Sense runs THROUGHOUT the phone. It's not like a home replacer like ADW/LauncherPro...
    I doubt HTC would give you an option to go vanilla.

    Well I did not know it ran in the background. Thanks for clarifying.

    Not only is there not a way to go completely vanilla but I believe HTC disables the ability to at least go with the stock android launcher. Which makes me sad because I would like that and the Froyo unlock screen to be at least an option.

    Look at my screen shots above. I just took earlier. And you can get the Vanilla lock screen. Just uninstall the htclockscreen.apk I did with titanium and my lock screen is now the Vanilla lock screen. Back it up before uninstalling.

    Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>All>HTC Sense. Clear defaults and then Force Stop. Press your home button and you will get to 2 launcher options. HTC sense and Launcher.

    Yeah that's a know issue right now. Hopefully when the official release from Sprint gets pushed out it will be fixed.

    So when you stop sense, the app drawer becomes the 3D one?

    Yes and you get the Vanilla Launcher.

    I don't know about with the 3D app drawer on stock android, but the 3D app drawer in LauncherPro also scrolls very smoothly, unlike the Sense UI version.

    Didn't work for me. Sense just restarts as soon as I hit the home button, without the option screen to choose Sense or Launcher. Basically just like it was after the previous update.

    Same thing for me, I don't think there's a, way to go vanilla without root.

    If you guys are on 1.47 it won't work. HTC disabled that in that version. It works on the Froyo leak.
