    Hi.

    Quick question..

    Although I am still awaiting the 2.3.5. update for my Unlocked GS2 my mate at work has updated his O2 GS2 to 2.3.5 but noticed today that when he presses and holds on an empty home screen it no longer gives the option to add widget/shortcut/folder etc..

    Can anyone confirm if this is a 'feature' of 2.3.5 or whether he may have a problem?

    And if it is a problem, any ideas on a fix?

    I wonder if clearing the data in TwLauncher would do it but don't want to suggest this if there is another way as I'm guessing he'll then have to reset up all his widgets etc.. which will be a pain if it doesn't cure it or if this is just how 2.3.5 behaves.

    He can still add widgets etc by going to menu and add but I for one would miss the press and hold option that I currently have with 2.3.4..

    Many thanks!

    Still works on 2.3.6 meaning it should work as well on 2.3.5

    Thanks! So anyone know of a possible fix for this? Can't find any settings to change this behaviour.. do you think clearing the TwLauncher data could help? He updated via the official kies method..

    Thanks.

    I would go for the clear data option. It will sort out most problems with launchers
