What do you mean when you say you deleted folders? I have access to folders still, they're just not as visibly attractive as on adw.

I said that when they procure delete the folders, I meant that blacked out some values ​​of languages ​​that are not needed and left it lighter.

Some ideas to still going?
My opinion: Keep on android path, dont do what tsf did for example..going some completely different way compared to what google proposes...

Start looking on what Holo Launcher do..what ADW new version itself did..

And then start to improve..improve..improve..try to make it as fast as stable as possible..

I really like to try new launchers..i change mine launcher almost every week..and still not find some launcher that fit everything i want...maybe it could be borning here =D

Good luck on development! =)

Just to will keep it open source?
