quick question.

So I'm rooted and enjoying the freedom but have a few other questions.

Has anyone installed a custom launcher (Nova) yet? What has been your experience?

If I install a Nova launcher do I lose all the Sense widgets, etc? what are the downsides?

If you use BlinkFeed you can't get that on a custom launcher (no way that I know of at least) and you also can't use HTC widgets.

okay, thanks. I'm really not liking the square app folder icons. I'm so used to the round, stacked view. Is there anyway to change the folder previews with the stock launcher?

There not so bad if you make them transparent. I believe the stock launcher is the best. My opinion of course.
