    I have an older 2.0.1 from Pete and I see it. I searched for Helix and it came up.

    I don't have a custom rom loaded but am rooted. I get some cellular cosmogony app anytime I type Helix. Oh well, looks like I'll put a custom rom on first and see.

    Dude its worth it. I like that i can put icons right next to the bottom launcher so the front homescreen looks very clean. Reminds me of my pre with the icons there.

    Does the market filter results based on firmware version?

    You can go to your /system folder find the build.prop and edit it(using root explorer or pulling it then editing it on your pc then pushing it back..Restart. Look for 2.0.1 and rename it to just 2.1 or some say change this line (ro.build.version.sdk=6) to (ro.build.version.sdk=7) That should enable you to see it if its for 2.1 only. ROOT ONLY option. Restart phone and nandroid backup before doing this.

    Did anyone notice that when you rotate the small icons at the bottom switch sides. So the icons that were on the left end up on the top when in landscape mode? That is the only weird thing so far. Other than that I really like the ability to keep the home screen clean looking as someone else said.

    I found easily on the market and I haven't had any problems (so far), including the above-quoted. I absolutely LOVE this home replacement (especially with the smoked glass theme). I just hope it doesn't start wonking out on me and FC'ing.

    Haven't had this problem either. Does it make a difference if you're rooted or not? I'm on 2.1 via Pete's BB ESE53 v0.8

    I'm also on Pete's BB ESE53 v0.8 using AdamZ's 800 LV Kernel and I have no issues at all. I really like this launcher!
