What do your icons look like? Screenshots might help (drocap2 in the market works great for screenshots).
Afterthought: If you are talking about the default LP icons...they are probably not themed in the paid version of Launcher Pro. There are ways around this...but before I go there...I'd like to make sure that IS the problem.
Yes you are correct with the LPPlus icons and it makes sense that it would "untheme" LPPlus after thinking about it! Its just this ROM runs so smooth its like taking it out of the box and unwrapping it!!! I honestly had a brain fart not realizing I'm working with a themed ROM so makes perfect sense now...I know i'll be looking for a fix tonight! Screenshots of before and after are attached.
[/QUOTE] Honestly, I haven't heard anyone talk about GDE in a while. I can recall one conversations where GDE was mentioned...but that's about it. I actually used GDE back in the day (November/December 2009) and it was decent...but LP and ADW have become the top aftermarket launchers and I wouldn't go to anything else. Can you get a demo in the market? I think some of the GDE themes in the market come with a "lite" version of ADW so you could try it out.
Make a backup before loading it as I don't know what it themes and what it doesn't. [/QUOTE]
WOW didnt realize GDE was that old...where the heck have I been? Ok so I was thinking of removing the ADW Launcher (not a big fan) and then use GDE as one of my launchers along with LPPlus, just like I have the option with LPPlus and ADW now...this is possible yes? I will look for it in the market!
[/QUOTE] Are you talking about the icons on the Launcher Pro Dock (by the app drawer)? If so, just long press the icon you want to change and click "Change Shortcut", then select "Applications" when the pop-up menu appears, then select the app you want in that dock position. When you select it, you will be prompted to use the default icon or the custom one. Use the default and it will match whatever the app icon is inside the app drawer. Make sense? If this is not the problem...let me know and I'll work on a different solution. [/QUOTE]
Yes I am talking about the icons on the dock but I was asking a different question than answered, no biggie, my bad for not explaining myself properly! This question coincides with the other post I referred to by gotwillk...I'm asking if his solution to the Google Search would correct my issue with the LPPlus icons that are now grayed do to the update but now I get that once I update then its unthemed so his solution will not fix my issue im thinking...
[/QUOTE] Being in the car dock, there are two screens. Swipe your finger from right to left when looking at the "Car Home" default screen. One of the three options will be screen brightness. THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR NORMAL SCREEN BRIGHTNESS SETTINGS. The three options are Day, Night, and Automatic. Auto simply switches between the Day and Night brightness mode (based on the phone's sensor) and I too find it too DIM when on Night mode unless I am completely in the dark. Change your setting to "Day" and you should be fine.
Hopefully this post helps you.
Well I have done some searching and found that its actually a defect in 2.2 Stock ROMs according to whats in these post but I have since found a fix for this (see post # 9 in link)...you can tell by my excitement in that post that I had really felt like I was the man for a minute LOL!

Thank you for you're help UBRocked!!! I will try and do better on my explanations of what I am talking about too! Hopefully some other NooBs will be able to see this entire page used up by me (sorry guys/girls) and get some answers to their questions as well!
