    Hey,

    So among all the videos now being posted about the droidx, ive yet to see one that shows the phone running LauncherPro or Helix or something. Im curious how close to the stock android experience we get once we replace the moto launcher with launcherpro (and possibly lose all the blur widgets).

    Anyone know a video that shows this, or care to make one if you have a test unit? ;)

    Thanks! :D

    It would need to be rooted first. And that has yet to be accomplished. The phone isnt even out yet remember.

    I didn't think the phone needed to be rooted to run a 3rd party launcher from the marketplace? And it seems the test/prototype Droid X phones that the media have aren't even allowing you to download apps from the marketplace but of course that will change with the final retail builds.

    Im not 100% sure but I dont think motoblur will play nice with a home replacement. I hope I'm wrong though.

    It is not motoblur, so take that word out of your vocabulary...It is not Ninjablur either.

    I'm new, but I just read in 5 different threads that the Droid X isn't running motoblur...

    If you check the pre-release thread around page 5, maddigital of this forum leaked a picture of his droidx next to a few other phones. He was running LauncherPro. So we know it works, and he said it was working exceptionally well. I would just love to see a video of it in action.

    As another poster mentioned however, it seems the review units are not able to install 3rd party apps, so i guess we will not get a chance to see this unless we can get maddigital to come out of hiding with his unit.
