    Hi all.

    Recently, I saw someone running a launcher that was effectively a mock of the new sense UI on the desire HD and desire Z phones. However, before people say so, it was definitely not the ported rom. I do not want to install the buggy rom from these devices. I am just wondering how these people did it?

    Ultimately, I just want the different coloured sense bars and shape's, ie. flat and not curved. I think they did it with ADW or something but cannot find how to or any information on this anywhere. I thought maybe I could just add it as a custom dock in launcher pro, but the icons aren't in the correct place for these... Maybe I got this wrong and they were running the ported roms, but i'm pretty sure it was something to do with a launcher theme? Anyway....

    So any advice, help or knowledge is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Edit - Like this... but obviously this is the actual rom so not identical.

    In launcher pro, if you missed out the 2nd and fourth icon, and gave a big icon to the centre button, custom icon backgroud... cant see why that wouldnt do it.

    Look over on xda dev forum for espresso mod. It just changes the dock on the sense Rom . Believe you need root access though.

    Ahh my main reason for going Launcher pro was that awful sense dock.

    Ah well, I don't use sense at all now. Thanks though ;)

    Is it possible to use the desire HD rom with a desire to get the new features?

    There are ported roms for rooted users. They are not all 100% working though
