    So I'm actually kind of liking the stock Home Screen and launcher on .596 GB. However, the one thing I'd really like to be able to change is the number of home screens. Is there any way to reduce it from 7?

    nah...the only home screen tweaking that is allowed is to change out the three icons to the left of the app drawer...

    i could send you my dock background that works with other launchers to at least make your dock LOOK like the stock Blur dock...you will get the same look...with the customization you're looking for

    this is what it looks like running on my phone with LPP

    The only thing I don't like about it is it doesn't support rotation. Other than that it's pretty good. I like the 3d environment. It makes me feel special......:D

    yeah for sure thank goodness that's the case. But are you guys talking about eclair (2.1) or froyo (2.2) I remember when we all upgraded to froyo we couldn't SBF back to eclair because the bootloader went from 30.01 to 30.04 or something like that.

    You can SBF back to 2.1. They have an SBF file for it but why would you want to give yourself one more step? SBF to 2.2 is the norm.
