[Solved] Scenes not working

    Hey folks.

    I'm using a T-Moble G2 Touch that I've had for about 3 months now, never had any problems with it so far.

    Yesterday while I was out, something happened to my phone that caused the desktop to lose all of my shortcuts and widgets, and the 5 standard desktop panes - music, messages, home, weather/market, bookmarks - have become 3 panes - left and right are empty, and the home screen is this:


    WHERE'S MY CLOCK, WHERE'S MY MESSAGES, WHERE ARE ALL MY BOOKMARKS, AHHHH. Also note how the menu button at the bottom is different from what I'm used to.

    So I guess it's a problem with the scenes, but since the desktop wiped itself yesterday, I can't actually set a scene. I tried to change it to HTC initially, it asked me if I wanted to erase the current scene and I said yes, but nothing happened except that my custom scene is now gone from the list. The scene menu looks like this, but when I choose any of the options nothing happens (the dot goes green but the menu doesn't close), and when I go back to the desktop it hasn't changed:


    I had a look on Google and found this which sounds similar to what's happened to me, except for the bit where I can't change the scene at all. I've tried restarting the phone and done everything suggested in that thread, no luck.

    If it helps, this is my phone's system info screen. I don't have many custom apps and the only app I use that changes things about the phone's appearance is Better Keyboard, which I've been using for a few weeks. I can't think of anything I might've done to the phone before the problem happened - just checked my emails, watched a vid on Youtube and put the phone away (locked in my car, nobody could've messed with it) for a couple of hours. Came back and it was like this.

    Ah - just remembered something. Before it happened, when I pressed the Home button a window popped up asking me what I wanted the Home button to do by default - one was show the desktop and I don't remember what the other option was. I don't know why it would've done that because I haven't changed or installed anything since adding Mort Player last month. :thinking:

    [edit2] Google-fu tells me the the grey button belongs to Android UI. Does this mean Sense has turned itself off?

    [edit3] Hooray! The phone's fine, I'm an idiot.

    Figured out how to turn Sense back on (Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> HTC Sense --> Clear Data), and now everything's back how I like it. Looks like that popup was offering me Android vs Sense and I didn't realise. I'll just leave this here so anyone else who gets this can fix it.
