    Using Home instead of Sense. That with Fresh 1.1 and Gumbo Kernel = blazing fast and still very attractive using metamorph to change the launcher tab.

    Forever is like 20 min. All this flashing is done from recovery right? Not use pre-kitchen correct? Maybe I will let it sit a bit longer, maybe I'm not being patient, I will time it this time...just to be sure I'm not over-exaggerating my boot time. Just flashed launcher from recovery now, and booting. Will time it...hope it works, really like the nexus launcher. If that doesn't work, I will try to re-flash with Fresh 1.1 in the order you suggested, maybe that will work.

    Go into applications.....scroll to HTC Sense, and click on it. Once it pulls up "clear the defaults" then click your HOME button. It will ask you "home, or Sense" click on HOME to take off sense....

    To go back to it, go to applications, then go to home...click on it and clear the defaults, and hit the home button and switch back to HTC Sense.

    Hope this helps you!! :D

    Unless you clicked on "use as default" after you hit the home button and clicked "home"....you should be able to hit the home button and "click HTC Sense"

    I never knew that. Thanks. You would figure that with all the stuff I've flashed and re-flashed and tinkered with, I would have known how to do that.

  19. I figured I should start contributing to this forum. I have gained a lot of information through these threads over the last couple of months. Thanks for all of the help. Time to start giving back...

    I am running Fresh 1.1, Gumbo kernel, setcpu, using the stock task bar icons, clear widget/lockscreen themes, and 2.1 icons. I also made my own wallpaper/lockscreen with photoshop.

    lock screen ----------- main home screen

    Thanks for sharing.....awesome set up. Question though, is that "Pure Calendar" I see you running..? If so how did you get that set up.


    I have looked into this and tried hitting many differnt buttons to get a set up simialar to that. All I could come up with is what I am running in the above pictures of my screen setups.

    Thanks in advance if you have the answers I so seek :)
  21. I tried several calendar widgets before settling on this one. It's called "Agenda Widget". Has alot of nice features. And it's free! Give it a try.

    Thanks man...just downloaded it and the only problem I have is that it's for the "HOME" screen and that's it. I like my calendar on the second screen....as my first/home is taken with a photo and commenly used apps!!!

    Thanks anyways, you are right it is a wonderful app!!!
  23. I assume that you are referring to the middle screen as the "HOME" screen...

    I am able to put the widget on any screen. Not sure exactly why you aren't able to do so. In fact, the widget allows multiple instances that can point to different calendars (ex: google, holidays, etc.).
