    So I've been using HelixLauncher1. I downloaded HelixLauncher2, and all my shortcuts/widgets/everything is gone. Do I have to start over and edit my 7 home screens again, or am I missing something?

    It's so nice looking, the new launcher is great. I only want 3 screens, I don't need more, but the option is nice.

    The HelixLauncher 2 is very nice! However, I just got word of the Ultimate Droid 8.1.1. Does anyone know how to update to this ROM?

    I've gotten TONS of force closes since downloading it from devs website. Gonna uninstall and try downloading it from the market. Maybe that'll help. But i do love it better than clockworkmod!

    Roy released the HL2 link on the forums a couple weeks ago, I ran it for about two weeks, but the fc's and lag became so frequent that I had to drop back to HL1..can anyone confirm if its the same version?

    no it is a different version, that one that was released on the forums was a beta. I also used that one and got lots of lag and force closes. Just downloaded helix 2 from the market. got all my icons and widgets assembled. i will test it out during the day and see how it goes.

    So far though, it seems smooth and lag free. Hopefully it stays that way after extended use.

    please let me know, I liked hl2 so much more than hl1, just couldn't deal with the fc's

    The only lag I am seeing is in the 3-D app drawer. Sometimes it just sits there for about ten seconds, then I am able to scroll through my apps. Other than that (and I don't use the 3-D drawer for much other than to set up my home screens), it's running very well.

    So far, so good for me. I have had one force close, but no more. Occasionally, it will mess up the app title alignment in the app drawer and I have had one time where it refused to draw the Widgets and icons on the home screens. Going to the HL2 configuration screen and clicking Restart Launcher fixes it, though. Nothing has been bad enough to make it unusable. It has been working just fine with all of the live wallpapers I've tried, too.

    For those who installed it from the website before, even though the version number is the same on the Marketplace variant (0.7), they are different. For example, the website d/l variant had the app drawer icon on the right and did not have the "Notification" button in the home menu. The Marketplace variant has the app drawer in the middle and the notification menu button is back.

    Make sure to remove each widget from your old launcher before putting them on to the new one. Some Widgets get grumpy when you have them placed on homescreens of more than one launcher at the same time. That can sometimes cause f/c's, it seems.

    The only thing ive noticed while playing with it for the last hour or so is that when im in an app and go back to the home screen it will take a second or two for the icons to load up.

    Yes, I am seeing this, too. It is sometimes for more than 2 seconds, though...more like 10 seconds. I don't know if I like it that much...but the 3D launcher is so very cool! haha

    I've seen this, too.
    But the HL2 is thumbs up nonetheless. Maybe a bug tweak here & there will solve the home screen hesitation.

    thats cuz you prolly changed the amount of screens with apps and widgits still on the screens. boot in safe mode and uninstall. then reinstall.
