    Seems like Helix is in an eternal force close and I can not do anything. How can I fix this without wiping the phone?

    Yeah, I had a FC or two today as well, but it's behaving now. I went 2.1 yesterday afternoon. It had been previously very stable.

    I definitely love that home screen...

    I couldn't uninstall it because it wouldn't let me get that far. I just got into safe mode now. All it well! Thanks for the resources AC.

    Be sure you are using HelixLauncher and not HelixLauncher2, lots are reporting force closes with that one...

    I do believe Helix 2 is meant for the Nexus? Hence, definitely less than appropriate.

    Factory reset to rid you of it? Bummer

    Yeah, some other roms have incorporated 2 into them so people get off thinking they can use it, but its not really stable.

    HelixLauncher 1 is amazing though

    I was using one, and accidentally changed the number of screens with widgets on them still. I booted into safe mode and deleted Helix. All is good now and Helix is back on!

    Glad to see you are back up and running. Never fun to see someone experience issues, but we all learn from them

    Once you download HelixLauncher you literally just have to hit the home button, and then itll ask to complete using Helix or Home, select Helix.

    From the home screen, press menu, then go to configure, then the first option will be how many screens, select from there how many you want to have.

    No problem. And when you press the home button, it gives you the option which to use, select the check mark and then press Helix and it wont ask you anymore, itll default to that til its removed or you reset the option

    Hello again. I think my problem is that I had Helix installed a while ago, and turned it off - or selected the Droid home page as default instead. Now I can't get Helix going again. Yes, I hit the home button directly after Helix is installed, and I don't get the home screen options. Is there a way to reset this? The default button in the helix application menu is grayed out. I can only unistall or force stop. Thanks.

    I figured it out - I needed to do the filter - all on the applications, then hit the default off on the "home" application. Works great, now.
