    Does this new Helix remember what's on the home screens and settings or will I have to re-enter everything?

    You will have to reenter everything. Market apps are protected, this one is not. It will not install as an update.

    the first link was a .apk file, Link2 is a .zip, any suggestions?

    Place in your sd card. Use astro to rename it (change it from .zip to .apk)

    Figured I needed to do something along those lines after I unzipped it and nothing happened with astro..lol

    On another note..I don't know if I want to give up the glass bar..haha

    I have been using it all afternoon and its not terrible for the menu to be on the right, do you know if he'll make it with the glass bar AND the centered menu?

    He is in Asia somewhere. Think he is still asleep. I did send him a message. Hope he fixes it soon.
    My trash can for Helix
    The drawer handle is the same but with his mouth closed.
    The mouth only opens when I'm deleting something.

    stick the apk file on your SD card, then use a file explorer, I use ES File Explorer, navigate to the file and tap on the APK file. Then it will install ...

    Let us know when the app drawer button has been moved with the glass bar, lol. I am not getting rid of the glass bar -- I'd rather have the app drawer button on the right then losing the glass bar. Now having both would simply be amazing though

    Well, the easiest thing to do is just download the file to your computer.

    Then be sure the file extension at the end is ".apk".

    Then just mount your Droid (connect the USB cable, pull down the notification bar, select the open files, select mount).

    Then open the drive that's created on your computer (mine is usually E:\), and then drop the .apk file on the SD card.

    Unmount, then disconnect.

    Open astro, and navigate to where u saved the .apk file, and select it, it should install.

    I use my computer because it's easy to be sure the file is in the correct format. All this should take less than 5 mins after u do it for the first time

    Ohh, okay -- I have no idea then -- I installed the one that's linked to in this thread -- if it's another version, then I can't comment. I'm kinda new to this entire Droid thing, only had the phone for about 4 or 5 weeks now.

    Roy,

    Did you have to use metamorph to get the droidbot like that? Or is that another version of the HL2 launcher?

    So after running HL2 for almost a full 24 hours, I recently noticed a little bit of sluggishness, and a couple FC's here and there, nothing that makes me want to go back to the stock home though

    Wow I'm a dumb a$$ haha. This whole time I have been thinking the launcher file you sent me was the helix launcher with the Droid not icon built in. No wonder I couldn't get it to look like that. I'm gonna go look at metamorph now and see if I can figure it out. Just in case I can't though, what steps would I take to change that?
