    OK IM SURPRISED! lol
    im glad you got it worked out by the way

    OK OK im surprised no one has told people to do this, i tried it and it worked for me ;)

    so anyone who has a custom recovery, boot into recovery!
    tbh i don't know if you can boot into regular recovery and still do this but ehhh!

    after your in recovery connect your phone to your computer and open a command prompt

    CD in the command prompt to your platform tools *aka the ADB folder*
    Example Mine Is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

    while in recovery "if your using either one of these 2.2.1 or 2.2
    go to mounts, and mount the system.
    then in the command prompt type "adb push (LG HOME FILE LOCATION) /system/app/
    after thats pushed type adb shell
    once it shows "/ #" on the command window type "cdmod 644 /system/app/LGHome.apk"

    once you have done that on your phone unmount the system. then reboot and BOOM! you have your LG home screen back WITHOUT having to format and lose everything ;)

    by the way the home apk HAS to be named exactly like this! LGHome.apk

    if anyone needs to know how to get the APK, you can extract if from a rom or i'll be more than happy to give em to you, :) JUST KNOW if your on 2.2 you have to get LGHome from a 2.2 rom, and same concept for 2.2.1, get it from a 2.2.1 rom.

    Well actually, you can name the apk anything. The real name of the apk is on the AndroidManifest.xml, inside the apk. I believe its called com.android.launcher

    really? if you have this phone can you try it for me :D! i would try it but right now my android SDK is going **** on me >.<!

    last time i tried to push anything into system/app/ though it wouldn't show up until the right permissions were set and the apk was named properly. *i replaced my music player with This one :D*
    if it works for you let me know because there might be a diff in systems in that case :O

    Well actually you are correct on that point. System core apk's have to be named the same as it was when compiled and signed with the keys.

    The best way to fix that is to push the apk through a modified recovery, then use the fix permissions option on the recovery. Reboot, then your set.
