    HelixLauncher2 in the market says it requires 2.1-update1 that is on the N1. Does HL2 work on the Droid now?

    Does version 1 work on the updated Droid?

    I really, really need more than 3 home screens, and want to try Helix to get them.

    Doesn't for me, keeps force closing over and over again... I had to revert to the original which I still like better than any other home alternative since I can put my own permanent icons on each side of the menu, and with BetterCut I can make them match my theme.

    Do people read directions before downloading? It says pretty clearly it only works for the N1, if you have Droid you have to use HelixLauncher!

    It does not. Force Closes. Why for the life of me didn't they include 5 screens in the 2.1 update. Thats just stupid!

    Your wrong..I use Helix2 fine..Its runs great with Ultimate Droid 9.0. Never a force close..the trick is too take off the other home screens and not bog it down with too many widgets.

    Of course you can get it to work if your rooted, but dont complain about it not working when your stock and it clearly says N1 only!

    Just updated my ph one this morning, everything is fine with the original helix launcher. I had one force close when i first booted into it after the update. Did one proper power down and back on and everything's fine. No prob's what so ever.

    Saw in his comments where stock droid users can't run it which is silly IMO because he specifically says in the description N1 only. 2.1 ROM's are not exactly identical to stock...there is custom code in them..so it's not suprising a modified N1 launcher may run fine with them.

    the reason it works on BBeast and droidmod is because there developers tweaked the framework so the 3D app tray would work. the oficial update will not support it.

    No, it's Nexus 1 only. I think there is one in the works for the Droid but I might have just made that up.

    its not nexus 1 only, it works on some droid roms that implimented the framework tweeks to run it. there is an installable version that was created months ago but it is really unstable and FC's a lot
