Root Is there a launcher that mixes sense 3.0 and ADW?

    I'm running CM7 and have the defaulted ADW Launcher and i've gotten too used to the dock with custom apps. I can't go back to sense with just the app drawer and phone and personalize thing. However the sexy new sense 3.0 is soo nice. notifications and things on the lockscreen is amazing. also the stautus bar. Does anyone understand what i'm saying and want the same? An HTC sense with basically a 5 app dock tray instead of the sense dock.

    Yea, I know what you mean. You want the freedom that ADW gives you with all the cool sense features. Unfortunately it's not possible.

    Like, i want to have the features that sense 3.0 has, such as the lock screen and the jump to notification (for example, what the new ios 5 can do, which they stole from us). But i also want to have a dock that has my texting app and my web browser and a couple others, instead of the sense dock, which is un-customizable and...kinda useless

    Apparently you missed my post...what you want can't be done. You either have to use ADW and your 5 wide app launcher or use sense and have the lock screen and other features

    Wait a minute. Either I'm misreading this or not following. AdwEx will give you 5 apps and Liquid 3.0 will give you lock screens like he wants. No?

    Pretty sure this would work. Liquid 3 does let you go to things, but I'm not sure if he would be able to live without the widgets (sounds like what he really wants.)

    Even in the morning light I don't get it. We'll wait until he responds.

    It was my understanding that he wanted the 3.0 lock screen, shortcuts and the sense widgets, plus a 5 wide app drawer. Based on that, it's not possible

    I don't see anything about widgets. The lockscreen we have now with CM7 and any variation thereof.

    notifications and things on the lockscreen is amazing

    Those are the shortcuts to messages, email, whatever

    And he's specifically said sense a couple times. While a fake, so to speak, sense can be acheived I assumed (maybe I was wrong) he wanted sense and ADW

    Got ya. Yes, even with a Sense rom, sense personalization and adw are incompatible. By shortcuts I thought he meant on the lockscreen, which we now have. Oh well, he's not been back so we'll see.

    Yes for the people that are still confused i wanted to know if it was possible to mix the sense 3.0 lock screen features(widgets, shortcuts, etc.) Not the cm7 lockscreen shortcuts. I obviously already have those. I also wanted the 5 wide app dock that ADW gives you. I wanted all that in one

    Then Worm was right. It's not possible at this time.
