    The apps page sometimes comes up black or is slow to load. It does look slick though. I'm going to remove some widgets from my previous home screen and maybe delete it (launcher +) and see if that helps. Love the new walls too.

    Yes, just go to manage applications in settings and uninstall.

    I do not own a Moto Droid, I have the little brother, but I wanted to know if you make changes from 2.0.1 to 2.1 if you don't like it can you always go back. Or are you stuck with 2.1?

    This installation won't brick a rooted droid, will it?

    You're not installing the OS, just the home screen launcher and wallpaper. you're installing an app and can simply uninstall if you don't like it.

    Do you have a file manager like Astro installed?

    It allows you to easily access files. Go to the market and install Astro, it's free. Then unzip the launcher zip file and copy the launcher .apk file to the download folder on your memory card. Then open Astro, open the download folder, click on launcher 2, then select open app manager, then install.

    When you click on "launcher 2" in astro it should give you a prompt with two choices, browse file and open app manager.

    No. I have a rooted 2.0.1 and it works very well

    I'm getting a lot of force closes when trying to change wallpapers from the ones that came with launcher 2. Anyone know of a way to save these walls before I delete launcher 2? it's a bit too buggy.

    As an alternative download link you can use directly on your droid.

    No. You need to install the gallery separately and from what I know you cannot get the music app. I love how nice this launcher is though.
