Default Working launchers list

I thought maybe we could all get on one page with launchers that work on rooted kindle fire hd. These work fine with no problems:
ADW ex
Nova launcher prime
Go launcher hd
FTL launcher pro

I also downloaded windows seven pro, it does work but it is a bit laggy and needs tweaking. (Yes I know, but I just couldn't help myself, wanted to try anyways)

Note to moderator: if you do not see a need for this thread, please delete.

No all have to be moved to system apps and modified, (see go launcher thread)
I really like Nova and go launcher hd.

I've tried 4 different launchers:

Nova Launcher 1.21- worked after installing, would not start on reboot

Go Launcher HD- works, but the background image doesn't size right/shifts every time you rotate the screen

Apex Launcher 1.3- would not install

Nova Launcher Prime 1.0.1- works, no hide dock feature

Nova Launcher Prime 1.2- works well, slow to start, most features functional

the best way to figure out if a launcher will work is to download it, move it to system/apps, change permissions to rw--r---r---, DON'T INSTALL IT, reboot your kindle, and it should prompt you you when it starts to choose a launcher

Apex launcher works very well for me. Lots of controls - if you use 'em. Mostly, it just looks clean, and the maker took some pains to make sure that it worked well.
