    Hello all,

    I recently installed Simply Stunning 3.2 rom and its running fine so far, however I have a bit of a problem with a shortcut that I made with bettercut. I made shortcut for contacts with bettercut but when I try to use it, it tells me the application is not installed. Now I have encountered this before and found that I could fix it by deleting the duplicate shortcut that bettercut makes on the built in home launcher (I use helix). My problem with this new rom is that it doesn't have the home launcher installed and only has helix and helix 2. Due to this, I have no way to open the android home launcher.

    My question is, there a place that shortcuts are saved even though the home launcher isn't installed? If so where is that directory so I can remove the dupe shortcuts?

    Are there any other ways to fix this? I don't want to have to use the stock icon.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Josh

    Did you try dragging it into the trash can? You could also download launcherpro beta as it is much faster than helix. FYI, you can change the stock shortcuts on the bottom by long pressing them.

    I am not able to drag to trash because the home launcher isn't installed. I need to find out where the OS stores its home screen shortcuts so I san manually delete the dupe shortcuts. The only launcher I have installed is helix.
