    So I'm running android 2.1 on my Sprint Hero, but I want to disable the Sense UI so I can run the Android OS default home (just to check it out). Most of the things I've read online say to do the following...

    3)manage applications
    4)HTC Sense
    5) Clear default

    The only problem is, there is no default to clear. I can't even click on it and force close does not work. Somebody help me with this please!!! Thanks in advanced.

    either clear the default in HTC sense or HOME. or dl and try out launcher pro in the market, i think you'll like that more than the plain android.

    edit: someone just said in another thread that if you are on official 2.1 update, you cannot turn off htc sense.

    Okay, so I tried out ADW Launcher and Launcher Pro. Launcher Pro seems to work a lot more smoothly than ADW Launcher, but they are both good without a doubt.

    Off but on topic. I think they removed "home" from the new 2.1 update, which means the default and only home app installed stock is sense. I'm pretty sure I have heard stories like this at other places. Not quite sure why htc would find this necessary. Space? I doubt home took up that much though.
