    Are you rooted or stock? I do not use bettercut, but I just read a guy who is having issues with bettercut on a rooted droid running UD 1.0.0.

    I am going to move this to the All Things Root sub-forum.

    Also, I will keep on eye on the other forum and see what (if anything) is said about this. He basically said that he could create the shortcuts, but that they would disappear after an undisclosed amount of time.

    You can't do it the usual way by just opening Bettercut.

    Here is how you do it..............

    Long press the home screen and select shortcuts
    then select Bettercut
    Then select activity
    Pick the app or whatever you want to change and make a shortcut for
    Now change things like icon and name
    Hit create

    enjoy.............

    Let me know if it works. Does for me everytime

    That is how I do it (i've used it for 4-5 months), but now when i press create it just goes back to the screen where i select"select activity" and no pop up comes up that says created...and the icon is not created when i go back to the home screen.
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling bettercut to no avail.
    I had this issue before and fixed it by switching roms. However, i really like UD 1.0 and do not want to switch b/c of this.
    I even tried anycut and that also didn't work.
    thanks.

    So you select activity and it goes to the activity list screen but no activities are listed?

    no. i press select activity and all the apps come up. I then select app, change name, select icon and press create. It then goes back to previous screen where i pressed "select activity". No icon was created. It is weird. It used to work fine. I suspect it is a ROM issue compatibility. I did use shortercut and it worked fine, but i want to get bettercut working.
    thanks for helping

    I had some issues with BC before with Launcher Pro. If your still having issues you can try Desktop Visualizer, I've used it for a few weeks now and it does everything bettercut can do, and its free as well.

    Agreed on the icon packs, but you can go out and find icon packs or individual icons elsewhere, I took quite a few from here:

    http://androidforums.com/droid-roms/172574-theme-pack-bugless-theme-collection.html


    If you look through there there are some zips for different launchers that have icons in them. I used quite a few from the galaxy s theme in that thread. Simply save the icon on your sd and use Desktop Visualizer to change your desired icon.
