    I had GO Launcher EX for a few weeks, and didnt like it. Today, I uninstalled it. Now I have only a black screen (not a BSOD). I can see the notification bar but nothing else! I have powered off and on, and also pulled battery...Nothing.

    HELP PLEASE! :thinking:

    I'd try pressing the home key first to see if that brings you to the stock launcher. Probably not, though, if you tried restarting.

    You can also try reinstalling Go Launcher EX from the market again (from a PC web browser logged in to the same Google account that you used to set up the phone.) It should automatically install, and a press of home *should* start Go.

    If that works, you can install this Moto Home Fix app. This should allow you to set the stock launcher as home the next time that you press the home key, and *then* you can try uninstalling Go.

    See if that works...

    Does BSOD stand for Black Screen of Death?
