    So I woke up this morning to find all of my customizations gone and my Eris is now operating and looking like my husband's Droid. Considering I just bought it this week and was getting used to it, it's only mildly annoying, but I'm wondering how I go about finding out what happened to it?

    Any help is appreciated :eek:

    Well, by restart if you mean restart the phone, I did that. Took the battery out and everything. Same result.

    yeah, what makes your eris different from your hubby's is cosmetic. if the home screen crashes it will go back to default launcher.

    Sounds like sense is dead. Maybe there was an OTA that messed with it. Has any other eris people experienced this?

    Did he (or did you) change the scene on your phone? Menu > Scenes. That might be what caused it.

    go into settings>apps>manage apps.

    find home, click it, then click clear defaults.

    when that is done hit the home key on the bottom left is SHOULD ask you if you want sense or home, pick use as default and sense

    done.

    I can't change Scenes anymore. I tried changing between different ones and it doesn't seem to work either.

    Edit: good LORD Caddyman... fastest draw on the interwebs. You already fixed the problem for them before I even finished typing out my response.

    Have you tried resetting the defaults? If you've installed certain apps, they can sometimes clear the default home actions, or you can accidentally do it yourself during installation (screen lock apps can do this, for example).

    Go into settings -->applications, then look for "home." (icon is a little house w/red roof) tap on it, then within that screen tap on the "clear defaults" button. Then if you press the actual home button, it should ask you if you want to complete the action using sense or home. click the "use this as my default" box at the bottom first, then tap on Sense, and it should go back to normal, and it should return to that every time you press the home button.

    unless something is seriously screwed up :)

    I am trying to follow this but mine is completely empty. All 00's. Is this only if you have downloaded something?

    I go to settings, applications, manage applications, home and I see:

    0.00B
    Storage total 0.00B
    Cache 0.00B
    Launch by default: No defaults set
