    +1 mike. Alternatively you can fix permissions which may resolve your issues. Were you on a deodexed rom? (Read super clean, or debloated/deodexed)

    I have been able to log into different sites on the Internet from the browser on my phone: download files to the sdcard (download folder) then install as required...
    Me too. When I'm at work and need a fix I do it on my break

    na, the problem he is having is that stupid database problem with launcher pro and "frequent flashers". deleting the fede folder is the only cure. well you could format databases and dbdata in cwm, but that acomplishes the same thing.

    Dumped LP Pro months ago and still encountered the issue...

    Probably unrelated causes but similar in manifestation.. that is why I suggested the (kill the fly with the shotgun) therapy with the clear caches and reflash.

    Also, don't know if this will help but I ran into the same issue at one point. I am running voodoo and I wiped cache and dalvic in CWM, then flashed a clean ROM, then wiped cache and dalvic again, then reboot and it worked for me

    you must install cwm all, read the section on how to flash a zip. and learn to navigate clockwork

    What you are looking at likely ADW Launcher - it is free from the market. Or it could be Launcher Pro..

    In ADW you can modify your dock appearance to 3 or 5 icons, and you can make it transparent.

    There is also Launcher Pro (free and paid version available on the market). It has similar options for dock appearance. Like Landshark said - there have been some issues with it's function.

    Both give you more options for modification of the desk top. I have used both but prefer ADW...

    Try one or both out - what is great is that you can aways uninstall.

    Edit: Sorry Landshark.. I didn't see you posting there..

    I have Launcher Pro installed on both of our SC2.9 fascinates, and 2 rooted w/lag fix Tabs, and have had no issues on any of the devices. I also have spb shell installed on my SF and switch between LP and spb all the time with no issues and no freeze ups. The LP i used on all devices was, um borrowed from NitroDark Eclipse theme (thanks nitroglycerine33) I am actually running the theme but wife is running Purple Myst.

    You and I are apparently symptom free. I had no issues with it either... I know that there have been reported issues with databases not clearing or formating properly switching between themes while using Launcher Pro.

    when installing a new rom, it says it is recommended to wipe cache, dalvic cache and data...

    Is the "data" wipe referring to the factory reset option?

    Just want to make sure.... thanks!

    Yep. If you're just moving between versions you should you can probably skip the data wipe.

    as in 2.9.1 to 2.92? no data wipe/factory reset is necessary?

    Correct, but even more that that. You know when you look in your about phone section and you see the baseband and build, and how right now both say EB01? Well that EB01 is the "leaked" Froyo build we have been playing with. Every version of superclean since 2.0 has been an EB01 build. For a short time before EB01 we had another leaked build DL30. Before that were the Eclair builds EA28 and DL09, going backward chronologically. As long as you are going from one version of the same build letter and number combination to another version of the same letter and number combination, you don't need to wipe data, and may be ok without wiping cache and dalvik, but it basically never hurts. When going from one build, say EA28 to another, say EB01, you have to wipe all three. So within the same build no wiping for the most part, from one build to another, wipe it all. Hope that wasn't too confusing.

    perfect explanation... EXACTLY what I was looking to learn. Land Shark, once again, comes through for me... many thanks

    In Post #9 of this thread there is a process of extracting the "bootanimation.zip" file from a theme..

    Chances are also good that the boot animation already present (labeled differently) - on the links page. - I will post the link here when I establish which on it is..

    Edit: NitroDark v3 Boot animation is AndroidParticles1 Green - Preview || Download

    Download file - it must be renamed: bootanimation.zip and then use Method B to install..
    That should get you what you want.
    So I tried following the steps in method B to change the boot animation. I am using Super Manager as my file explorer. Well, when I go to the theme zip file, the file itself is there, however, it does not have the zip icon and clicking on it does not let me get "into" the file. Not sure what I am doing wrong... thoughts anyone?

    You will need to extract the (bootanimation.zip) file, from the theme, on your computer then copy/transfer that file to your sdcard... I use either 7zip or WinRAR to extract the file. Prefer 7zip.

    Then use the file manager to copy/paste to the system/media folder.

    Ah... ok, somehow I missed that part... no idea why! But thanks... will try that.

    Is this possible with other aspects of themes as well? For instance... I am now using Ultimate Honeycomb, which I love.... except I liked the taskbar icons and notofaction drop down menu icons better from my previous theme Nitro Dark Eclipse.

    Those parts can be modified but it requires some additional tools and guidance. If I might suggest if you really want to get going on some theme modifications you should check out this thread.

    As you explore threads you will find that some modifications and changes are simple and just require extraction and copying.. others require a bit more work.
