    Little help needed, or extra info if you care. I have just flashed this ROM onto my hero and been playing around with it for a little while. Do you only get the 3 screens though? I have seen on this video posted around these threads YouTube - 3 New Killer Features Added to LauncherPro! and he seems to have the standard 7 screens.. Would the Launchpro app give me my screens back? or was that just a feature of the Sense UI that i no longer have?
    Cheers, A

    You need to have a poke around in the settings, you can pick the number of screens (and a tonne of other things) in there.

    From the homescreen, hit Menu and then pick Preferences.

    are you trying to download free or paid apps? I remember getting the 'Download unsuccessful' error when trying to buy an app and I'd entered the wrong cc details lol.

    I sometimes get the Download Unsuccessful message and tbh I'm not sure what causes it as it pops up every now and again. Normally a reboot would fix it for me but still sometimes it happens.

    Check in the FroydVillain 1.4.x release post (first post of the thread) - a fix is mentioned there. Another fix is reported to be migrating your @googlemail.com account to @gmail.com, as it seems to only be an issue for those with @googlemail.com accounts. No idea if it's really true, but in any case, I was able to download stuff from the Market just fine, and I use @gmail.com account for my Hero.

    First thing to try is clearing the Market cache in Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications.

    If that doesn't help try removing the directory .android_secure from your SDCard

    If that still doesn't help... post back :)
