Default [Q] is it possible to remap buttons on home screen?

Hi
Is it possible to remap the button around the apps button on the home screen? The ones I'm talking about are the mail/browser/music/photos buttons. I'm on elocitymod 1.0c (and loving it)
thanks

I don't know how to do this with the default launcher. However, if you install another launcher such as Launcher Pro (found in the market) it will allow you a lot more customization including remapping the button. Just press and hold the button you want to remap.

i use ADW-Launcher, but i move the app to the homescreen, then instead of dragging it to the trash like i would remove it, i drag it over the button i want it to replace... default homescreen should work the same way...

Thanks. using launcher pro after trying adw as well. Adw has a lot of nice features. But I prefer the stability and speed of launcher pro. I also find home switcher useful to switch b/w launchers when I need to.
