Arrow UPDATED ONCE AGAIN - Stock Launcher & Enabling/Installing A Alternative Home Launcher

Here it is the xda post so you can use to use the stock 2.2 launcher (untested by me yet please post if you are successful), this will work for those to want to make your device look generic with no bells and whistles.

Use the AC Sideload Wonder Machine to install it if unrooted or rooted.


Launcher Pro (type, "Launcher Pro" on the search bar within the Market app)
- 19 hours and 7 mins and according to the battery usage within the Inspire it as only used 2% of the battery

ADWLauncher EX (type, "ADWLauncher EX" on the search bar within the Market app)
Zeam Launcher (NOTE No Longer Under Development) (type, "Zeam Launcher" on the search bar within the Market app)


Here's an article explaining it more in detail:

Like adw but, anyone doubting launcher pro on this thing should really try it. Very fast and seems to be helping battery. Don't get me wrong sense is beautiful so I switch between the two.

Used both but I used to have a 1400 mAh so I never really noticed the difference.

Something for people out there to consider if they do notice a difference.

Same here. One of the reasons I went with this over atrix. Keep trying diff. Launchers but none compare to sense. Plus battery does better with it, seriously. This phone was built for it even though I don't use all features.

Running a custom build of Launcher Pro, well see if there is a big difference in battery consumption vs ADW vs Sense

Obviously if you have tons of widgets your battery is going to go out quicker than usual

Update: completely abandoned sense and installed zeam. Fast fast fast! Also removed everything sense related in titanium backup. Battery doing very well for its size.
