    Default Launcher Pro....

    When I originally downloaded Launcher Pro, everytime I touched the "Home Screen" a window popped up and gave me the option of launching TW or Laucher Pro....
    Now I've lost that option? When I touch the home screen it defaults to the Tw Launcher? Anyway to default to Launcher Pro? Or at least to get the option window back?

    Yes there is.

    Menu-settings-applications-manage applications- (find launcher pro) - clear defaults.

    Hope this helps.

    Another question for those who are using this launcher.... When I'm running this launcher it's a running app in my task manager... Does this mean it's using more battery than the original installed TW launcher?

    Both launchers have to be pretty close in battery usage you wont notice any difference.

    For me, LauncherPro uses more battery than TouchWiz. If you are running LauncherPro, make sure you delete all the home screens from TouchWiz, and remove all the widgets before launching LauncherPro.

    Also, check out the Home Switcher app. It makes it easy to set the default launcher, and to switch back and forth.

    I doubt LP actually uses more battery, but if your phone is stock you'll still have TW running in the background and for obvious reasons 2 launchers uses more resources than 1.

    It's so worth the resources in my opinion. Now to decide if I want to pay for the Plus. Not even sure I'll use any of the new features, but just to support the dev I'll likely buy it very soon.

    excuse my stupidity but i had just rooted my fasicnate and got launcher pro (paid) and it seems my phone is a lot more buggy, it freezes, doesn't ring when i get calls then i just see a missed call, screen goes black, im not sure what to do, i just usually pull the battery. is it the launcher you think or because i rooted it

    If you followed the instructions here for how to root, I doubt you messed anything up. Did you remove any applications, bloatware, etc. after rooting?

    I'd start by uninstalling LauncherPro and see what happens.

    Dude, you should have mentioned that from the start

    Yeah, remove ATK, reboot and you'll be all set. And never put that crap on your phone again. Just out of curiosity: did the Verizon rep put ATK on for you?

    Good for you! Just keep pushing all your 110 pounds of weight around and you'll eventually make your point. Ask how many of them have actually even rooted their phone like you did.

    dont worry about the warrenty thing. you can get back to out of the box stock in about 3 minutes, as long as you have odin and you get the file

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [ODIN] Full DI01 ODIN Package

    you will be unrooted out of the box brand new. they will never know the differance.

    on another note, have you tried ADW launcher? i like it much better.

    I tried LP for a couple of days...when in a phone call the screen would go dark in 2 secs...no way to press speaker or any of the in call buttons, had to press power button then unlock and screen goes dark again in 2 secs all the while connected to the call. Couldn't figure it out so I uninstalled LP and all was good again.
    Using ADW now and its all good. Its comparable to LP.

    May I ask why to remove ATK?
    I've been using it since I got my Fascinate and it seems works like charm and haven't noticed any problem it may have caused.
    Am I missing something?
    Please educate me if ATK is evil thing to have on my phone.
    And any suggestion to replace ATK?

    Thanks in advance.

    Task Killers are a very touchy subject here. Some defend them, some go to the end of the planet to put them down. Check out the link in my signature "Task Killers 101" -- it's a great read.

    I'm noticing more and more new Dinc users having ATK on their phones. A few friends, who are not power users by any means, have it right off the bat. I asked one why he has it and he said it was "highly recommended" by the sales rep in Best Buy. *facepalm*

    Granted, Dinc'ers don't have the option to use the built in task manager to end apps.

    When I got my Fascinate, Best Buy tried to convince me to let them install it on my phone. Nooooooooooo way, I gave them a huge lowdown of why TK's are bad :P

    Considering the Fascinate has a task manager I don't know why you'd really need another one, except for auto killing things I guess.
