    Hi all,

    to refuse to do it :-\
    anyone managed it?

    cheers

    I've found that I can only set it from the gallery and only using the gallery to crop too. If I use quickpic to crop (which I use for the homescreen to accommodate scrolling) it just wont set

    Do you have a different launcher installed or any other apps that might be overriding the controls?

    Assume this is all with gallery? Maybe clear defaults?
