I Really love the original launcher way better than any other launcher out there.
I really don't like the ADW launcher.

So is there a way that I can use the original launcher instead of the ADW launcher on CM7 RC-2?

You can use Titanium Backup to remove ADW, so if you can find an .apk of the original launcher, shouldn't be too big of a problem.

I installed ADW EX on CM 6.1 and used Titanium to remove the standard ADW...

Well I managed to remove it by using titanium backup. But then I had no launcher anymore
How would I install the original launcher?

find a rom with stock launcher and push it in the phone via adb push

adb push /system/app/Launcher.apk

then after you push you can do adb shell or go in terminal and do

mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtd3block /system

rm /system/app/ADWLauncher.apk

I think your required to use adb, not simply open the apk like browser.apk or something.

I have a much simpler answer for you. I don't know HOW many times I need to post this information I feel like I've put it in 15 threads asking for stock launcher lol but here you go. No ADB required, etc.

You can find the mod here in the Nexus S forum: THREAD.

Download the first file and flash through recovery. You'll lose all your homescreen placements and widgets you have set up with ADW.

If you want to flash this over nightlies every day, you need to follow a specific order to not lose your placements again.
1) flash CM7 nightly via recovery (not ROM manager)
2) after install, stay in recovery (don't boot up into the ROM!), go to Advanced > Reboot recovery
3) after recovery reboots, flash the launcher mod

Just in case you're lazy, I've attached the file also.

ok you dont have to do it through adb you can do it all through terminal as well

jus put Launcher.apk on sdcard and do this in terminal
su
# mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cp /sdcard/Launcher.apk /system/app
after you do that do
#ls
and look for Launcher.apk if its there then do
#rm /system/app/ADWLauncher.apk
and exit
and your launcher shouldbe there

There really is no reason for him to download the SDK and run ADB just to accomplish this or even use terminal emulator. There are .zip's like the one I posted above that will just do this for you.

Well I found a much easier way to do this
I went on Astro and installed the gingerbread launcher, then I deleted the ADW launcher by using titanium backup. And that was it lol
