    Hi everyone,

    I like switching between the stock home and Launcher Pro and ADW. Since the 2.2 update, when I use a home switcher to use one of the replacements, my phone defaults back to the stock home screen when I hit the hardware home button on the bottom of my Moto Droid.

    Is there a setting I am missing to change this. Even when I select the replacement as "default" using the Home Switcher, it still reverts back to the stock one when I hit that home button.

    Any help would be apprecitated.

    Have you cleared the defaults with the stock launcher?

    Settings->apps ->manage apps -> all apps (tab at top of screen) -> launcher -> clear all defaults.

    When I do this, when I hit the home button, I get a pick menu with all the launchers displayed. the last option is "set as default" - if you decide to only use one launcher.

    Thank you Jerry!

    That solved the problem. Before 2.2, the home switcher did this automatically but for some reason it was not doing it after 2.2 for me.

    Thanks again.
