    Does this also replace the HTC keyboard with the vanilla 2.1 keyboard?

    Yeah this has been out for awhile now...this is just the Nexus One Launcher instead of HTC Sense...can be found on XDA also in the forums.

    All it is is Cyanogen's 5.06 nexus rom launcher. Install the apk, and you can switch between the nexus launcher and Sense. I've been running it for a week or so. The app drawer scrolling seems to be a little less responsive to me tho. I'm not a sense guy at all and can't wait to change some things once rooted. The stock dialer is nice but I can't stand HTC IME.

    Haha, I was just in a silly mood guys. This looks pretty good, but I think I will keep Sense for now. The only thing I like from this is the animation when you switch screens.

    Im deff a Sense guy and like the IME and how HTC did a great job overlaying things - I just thought it would be cool to mess around with some things since we don't have a root... I try to stick my hands in multiple things and I have devices galore from diff manufacturers... I am currently working on some app projects with some people - should be good stuff coming WJD style....

    I hated sense before I got my Inc. Now I'm pretty happy with it. It adds a lot of functionality but MANY of the widgets are just too big.

    Thanks for the welcome in, ever since I got in the waiting room thread I was hooked with this phone and sending out my hookups on info and my connections toward info. I am highly respected in the tech world and if I can help anyone on here with my work and connections I will...

    I am glad to be in a good community like this - hopefully we get this phone rockin... Wish we had a good GUI application for theme building to make things easier, would LOVE to make different versions of a Sense UI style Android theme...

    But ehhh due time - thanks for the hit up Acid...

    Dope! Thanks for the apks! After just hearing that the EVO can turn off Sense, its nice to that we can just install some files to create the same illusion. BUt the launcher is a bit slower, I guess cause Sense is still running in the background. I still love Sense tho.

    yeah I agree little bit laggy while scrolling but snappy as is... But deff is a good way for people that have never felt that Nexus launcher and why people talk about rooting and getting rid of sense... This something simple and quick people can do and the fact we haven't got root yet I knew people were antsy lol
