    Hey guys, just a few quick questions. I use ADW.Launcher and I really like it. I want to upgrade to the new 0.8.2 version but I don't know how to install it but doing adb push. If anyone can explain that I would be really grateful.

    My second question is that ADW.Launcher is on the market and you can install it like any other app. I played around with it and it seams that their is no difference to doing adb push. But I don't have that version to compare. So is there a difference?

    Thanks for you help guys

    if you are on froyo adb push doesnt work correctly. Easiest way to get around that is reboot into recovery and do it from there.

    adb push ADWLauncherxxxxx.apk /system/app/ADWLauncher.apk

    Yes, it is good to know how to push an app (and use adb commands in general) but for practical purposes an app like ADW that is frequently updated is easier to deal with just grabbing new releases from the market (I update apps from the market while stuck in traffic).
