Go to Settings then Applications, Manage Applications and say LPP is the default, go into that and choose Clear Defaults. That should get you back to the screen to let you choose etc

So, i can't get to the home screen, to run Home Switcher, to specify a different Home App, and I can't get to the home screen to run the App Market, and the idiot's website is down.

--Update--
It appears that the home page of his website is up, his forums are down. I might be able to install the apk (... and since i can't get to the Home screen, i can't get to my settings to turn on WiFi -- stuck with 2-bar Edge.. ). I realize this is free software, so who am i to complain... but this guy just rocketed past Pol Pot on the list of worst humans ever.
That is unfortunate but I suspect his web server woes are a result of the thousands of redirects as you describe above.

Now unless you specifically removed the other home launcher you should be able to go to Setting..Applications..All.. Launcher Pro and click the Remove "Launch by default for some actions" button which should then allow you to select the default or any other home replacement you have installed next time you press the home button.

I've moved this to the android application forum. This seems like a but with LP

If you have access to the LP forum later, check out this thread

Here's the post from Fede on the issue:
Quote:
That's my bad actually, I didn't realize that if you had an old LP Beta set as your default, you wouldn't be able to use it to open the market to download a newer version after it expired.

Future versions will automatically send you to the market to get the new version. At this point, the only thing you can do is install ADB and use it to install a newer version, or use ADB to uninstall LP and then install from the market again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1SOSXwkc_8 (You don't need Daemon tools like it says on the video).

The ADB command to uninstall LP is
Quote:
Code: Select all adb uninstall com.fede.launcher
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I didn't realize there was an expiry date as I have the LP+ version but found this thread stating why he put an expiry date:
Quote:
Free versions expire for mainly two reasons:

1) To avoid having to offer support for outdated versions. It makes matters a lot more complex if you have to try and solve someone's problem if they are using an old version. I haven't kept the source code for old versions so I cannot see what would cause the problem (and since the problem might have been fixed in a later update, there's obviously no need to look for a solution).

2) In case I ever decide to sell LauncherPro (as a whole) to a company, or if I decide to stop offering a free version, it wouldn't be good to have a bunch of free versions floating around.
Anyways...got to say I'm quite disapointed in Fede with the way he's dealt with this.

A couple of days ago I started seeing the message "Launcher Pro will expire in 3 days. Please go to (LP web site) to download the newest version." The message would appear on the screen for a few seconds whenever I hit the Home button, and then disappear and all would work fine.

Instead of going to the LP web site to DL an .apk I went in to the Marketplace and updated LP from there (I had been avoiding updating).

I'm using the free version, not the paid version.

For the OP, can you get in to Settings > Applications > Application Manager? You can scroll down to LauncherPro and clear the default there, so it is no longer the default home launcher. Then the next time you press your Home button, you should be asked which launcher to use. You can choose your original launcher and make it the default.

as for people being redirected to a "Host Gator" site, Hostgator is a web host. They are legit (I host a few of my web sites with HG). I'm guessing you were seeing a default HG redirect page because something was wrong with the Dev's site?

Default Help! Launcher Pro taken over my phone!

When I unlock my phone, I get a message that says "this message of launcher pro has expired. Please visit..."

I cannot do ANYTHING else. I can't go to my home screen, launch the android market place, nothing.

On the web page I am "visiting" it does not show how to get the latest version.

It has "captured" my phone.

Anything I can do?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Phil

They won't do anything for you, it's a 3rd party app, so they wouldn't consider it their problem. They would most likely tell you to do a hard reset of your phone (thus losing everything).

See my post above. If you can get in to the Applications Manager, you can stop LP from being the default launcher. Go back to your original home launcher, then go to the Marketplace and update LP.

LauncherPro

Hmmm.... just looked in to the marketplace listing (link above) and it seems a lot of people have this problem. It is possible the marketplace update won't work anymore if people didn't update before the expiration?

At this point, your best bet seems to be if you can get in to Application Manager you can uninstall LP. Otherwise, you might have to do a hard reset if you can get to it.

I had this with my sisters phone. couldn't do ANYTHING but go on the internet (which took me to the Gator site too). Here is what I did: Click on the 'search' button and go to
launcherpro.com/market.html
You SHOULD see a 'click here' link, click it (this will open LauncherPro in the market). Download LauncherPro from there (this resolved the problem).
If it works, I would download ANOTHER Launcher (such as ADWLauncher), so if one fails you have a backup.

I have merged all of the LP expire issue threads into one. I would recommend that you re-read this thread again as helpful posts may be posted before your thread was created.

Can you access the LP website to get the latest update?

This is from the LP site:
Click here to download the APK file

Hopefully by installing the update one, your phone function again.

Searching the LP Forum and came across this helpful tip from a member there for this app. Home Manager allows you to switch / uninstall / kill home. So might come in handy for you later if you have this LP problem again.

In my case, I had my phone set to not allow installation of apps from sources other than the android market, so I was (luckily) bumped to "settings", which i was unable to access before. I uninstalled the old version of launcher pro, enabled installation of apps not from the market, and reinstalled the new version of launcher pro. I had to reorganize the icon layout on my home screens, but my phone otherwise works fine now. So it was a little clumsy, but worth it.
Totally worked for my Eris. I used my search button to get to the Settings menu to enable Install apps not from Market.

I walked to find some 3G and tried this - it wouldn't let me install it because of my security settings, *but* Android did let me open my Settings from the warning panel and from there i was able to delete this shite app. So i have my phone functionality back again - thanks * 8.

I have been using LP Plus since it came out with zero issues.
It's only the FREE LauncherPro that will have this issue. Fede put a date expiration (or something) on the phone and forces you to update to the latest FREE version. If you have the paid version, you will not have this issue. From the latest thread that Fede posted on this from issue on the LP forum, it seems that Fede put an alert of when your Free version will expire.

WHAT A HORRIBLE PLANNING MISTAKE BY LP TO NOT SEE THIS COMING. For the casual user this expiration could have all but bricked their phone!


I flashed back to a different ROM to fix the problems. That was some serious BS though.

This was mentioned in post 42, but nobody confirmed if it would work on an expired LP.

Default Launcher pro expired and will not download update

Since the browser is the only thing working on your phone - from your phone
go to Download Free Android Applications, Games, Themes. Android News and Reviews.
Search for launcherpro and select
v0.8.2

Scroll down to "Direct Install".
It takes few seconds to download v0.8.2 - progress bar shows "installing"

This worked for me.

Default I have Escaped!

I escaped this Launcher Pro Hell by doing this:

I used advanced task killer to bring up the market, which seems to automatically be running after awhile. Then I installed Appbrain. Then Appbrain allowed me uninstall all of my current apps, including Launcher Pro.

This was a horrible experience, and I will never allow Launcher Pro into my phone ever again.

Default Fix for launcher pro expired

I had this issue on my wife's phone (Samsung Moment). To fix it, I held down the home button (long press) to bring up the app switcher. Then I chose 'task killer' (obviously you need to have that installed). I went to the 'security settings' in task killer and set it to 'low' so it would show more of the apps that were running. Once I got there, 'settings' was in the list and did a long press on 'settings' to open the 'settings'. From there you can 'manage apps' and uninstall it. I hope that helps out some of you.

On the flip side of the coin, I have LP (the free version) installed on my phone (also a Samsung Moment) as well and it did not expire or cause me any problems (directly, that is). I like the app and it works great for me. I think if the app was updated regularly it wouldn't have 'expire'. I don't understand why it would expire anyway but that's just my 2 cents.

You SHOULD see a 'click here' link, click it (this will open LauncherPro in the market). Download LauncherPro from there (this resolved the problem).
If it works, I would download ANOTHER Launcher (such as ADWLauncher), so if one fails you have a backup.


THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

Although I am not a fan of ADW this did unbrick my phone and allow me to uninstall Launcher pro, I am unsure if I will reinstall.

Eschesworld's post of going into safe mode and then accessing settings to uninstall LP worked and was the simplest solution. If your stuck and all you have access to is your browser try his recommendation. Safe mode lets you get into your settings and apps again. Worked great for me!

I had to reorganize the icon layout on my home screens, but my phone otherwise works fine now. So it was a little clumsy, but worth it.


So did you download this site on ur computer or the phone?

This is what I did.

Hold the "Home" button down
Click on "Task Manager"
From there you should be able to uninstall LauncherPro easily and your default launcher should come back

I had the worst situation among all of the guys here. LP expired, wifi and data was off (so i really had no way of connecting to the net). I couldn't access anything aside from browser. The search -> settings didn't work for me either since for some reason, it opens voice search.

The only thing I could do was open my recently used apps and the app that was there was my Browser and Advanced Task Killer. Sadly, settings wasn't showing in my task killer. I tinkered around a bit and found a security setting in my advanced task killer that if I set it to low, it would show all running apps. I ticked low and restarted my phone. After the restart, I checked advanced task killer and luckily Settings was showing. I immediately "switched to" settings and uninstalled LP from there. Now I'm back to my default home screen.

Thumbs up

I now have LauncherPro back and it's working great! The one on the Market works just fine. I'm sure my key for LP Pro will work just as soon as I retrieve it from my email.

All is well again. Federico is forgiven!

I got this too.

"Launcher Pro has expired ..." and i was not beeing able to access anything but a web browser. WTF!

Luckily enough i found in another forum that you can type in a market link in the browser (market://search?q=pnamerg.adw.launcher)

I was thus able to install ADW launcher and was prompted to use that one instead. Now all my screens are back.

I registered to this forum just to post this and try to help anyone who had the same problem as me, because i think it is absolutley horrible how LP (free) disabled the phone if it was not updated.
How can any of you LP-free users be sure that this will not happen again?
I will never ever use LP again. Ever.

I'll just add my two cents to this issue; perhaps it may be of any use for others. I basically ended up in the same situation on my Samsung Galaxy Spica as described here:

However, as a developer I have USB debugging enabled by default and also allow non-market apps to be installed through ADB.

For starters I downloaded the LauncherPro-0.8.2.apk file and tried installing it through ADB. That resulted in the error:
Code:
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_ALREADY_EXISTS]
Then I tried uninstalling it first, which simply returned:
Code:
Failure
(Very informative, thank you Google...)
Finally, I was saved by the "r" switch that allows for re-installing an app:
Code:
adb install -r LauncherPro-0.8.2.apk
That finally did the trick for me. Now it seems to be running fine again. Let's see for how long.

Default Kilt my fascinate

I spent two hours at verizon last night with a flextronics tech...the outcome is that launcher pro destroyed my phone...he couldn't even do a hard boot...waiting for new phone...one thing I won't do is load launcher pro...look for Verizon to do nasties to Launcher Pro

This worked for me, except not in the way you might think. I did not enable 'apps not from the market', so the install failed, however when the install failed a Settings button appeared! So, click on the Settings button, go to Manage Applications, and uninstall Launcher Pro. Then, email them and tell them that they are naughty.

I accidentally ran into a simple way to solve this for any of you that are still having problems. This will only work if you can still get into your internet browser. I went to yahoo.com to check my email. Once I got to yahoo.com and clicked on mail, it asked me if I would like to download or update the yahoo mail android app. Click on this--you do not need to download the app or update, the point is, it takes you to the android market. From there, just search for launcher pro, and then it will let you update launcher pro. All of my stuff is still saved.

Good luck!

Default Fixed

I woke up today, turned on my phone and bam, had the same problem. I tried doing various things to get it back to the TW Launcher, but since Launcher Pro was default I couldn't. Do note for people with this problem we can't get to the settings menu.

Here's how I fixed mine, and got it back to the TW Launcher.

1. Hard press the home icon and wait for the pop up menu to appear.
2. Click on "Task Manager"
3. Find Launcher Pro in the list.
4. Click Uninstall.
5. Turn off your phone.
6. Turn it back on.
7. If you have an unlock screen, do it.
8. You should be given an option to use TW Launcher (or any other launchers you have).
9. If not click the home button and the option should come up.

Hey... Just got my first Android phone. Based on reading forums like this, the first thing I did was replace the default app launcher with Launcher Pro and replace Browser with Opera Mini (and currently experimenting with SkyFire).

Love the phone. Bought an iPhone for my wife, and prefer the Android OS a lot.

This thread is scary... I don't fully understand everything you all are talking about. I only installed the app a couple of weeks ago. Should I remove it immediately?

Replace with what?
