    As an avid user of ADW and Launcherpro, I encountered some problems after the update to 2.2.

    For instance, If I switch to LauncherPro, and set it as default via "Home Switcher", the next time I hit the home button it still takes me back to Sense.

    The solution I found is this:

    1. You cannot use Home Swithcer.
    2. After uninstalling Home Switcher, go to Settings> Applications> Manage Applications.
    3. Click the tab to show all, navigate to "HTC Sense", clear it's defaults.
    4. Now, the next time you hit Home, it will ask what to do. Select the launcher of your choice and make it default.

    From here out, you can use Home Switcher to launch a different launcher, but know that the "Set Default" action will not work for 2.2. You will have to clear default for whatever launcher in order for home to function properly for whatever launcher you choose.

    Hope that will help at least one person...

  2. I want my EVO

    Huh...Im using LP+ and home switcher and i havent had a single problem yet.

    Now this could be due to 2 reasons.

    1.) I was one of the early worms to get .3 Froyo rather then the one that was released last night (.6).

    2.) After i installed .3 i did a hard reset and then reinstalled 2 apps before using Mybackup Pro to finish the rest that was missing.

    So it could be a combination of the 2 that allowed me to not have this issue.

    Either way i love Froyo and i love LP+!

    idk, maybe it's hit or miss. I had the early OTA as well, and also had the donor versions of all the fresh roms. I have had the same issue with every one. Actually, Home switcher in the market now mentions it's incompatible with 2.2. Count yourself lucky friend.
