Lock portrait with only ADW solved
You can lock it into portrait mode using only ADW, no external apps/widgets required.

I came across how somewhere here on XDA and reposted it here:

to do it in adw...

hold phone in portrait mode
menu --> adwsettings --> system preferences --> check system persistent

that does it for me.

only thing is when you reboot... need to go back in uncheck it, then hold in portrait rotation and go back and re-check it.

ADW can kinda lock the home screen but not successfully between reboots

Widget Locker. It's a paid app but it does the trick.

I found that the most recent version had some bugs with the Streak but if you email the developer he will organise to send you version 1.2.5 which works well with the Streak.

i got the widget launcher apk installed and configured. i guess it will do for now but it doesnt feel very native. every now and then the default android locker will flash for a second. i was hoping a setting in build.prop would have it.

Have you asked the developer to send you version 1.2.5? Like I said, the version on the market is buggy with the Streak but I had no problems at all with 1.2.5.
