IT REQUIRED ANDROID 2.2
( Not sure if it works 2.1 or below )
so dont bother asking why it doesnt work, PLEASE READ THE POST

***ICONS DONT COME WITH THE LAUNCHER, IT A CUSTOM ROM (MIUI)*****​

it should work on all android phones with a 2.2 WITHOUT ROOT, but it probably look nicer, or better on android phones with a LCD Density 240, like the evo or droid x or etc,

BUT to get the landscape mod like this
6a00d83451c9ec69e20133f59e20a8970b-800wi


you are required ROOT ACCESS AND AN ANDROID PHONE THAT HAS AT LEAST A 4.3 INCH SCREEN, NOT SURE IF IT WORKS ON OTHER PHONE WITH SMALLER SCREENS. BUT IF IT DOES IT MIGHT REQUIRED SMALLER DENSITY.


TO GET LANDSCAPE YOU NEED TO GET THE LASTEST LCD DENSITY App located here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=765639&highlight=dell
CHANGE THE DENSITY TO 160 AND LET THE PHONE RESTART. NOW HOLD YOUR PHONE ON LANDSCAPE AND IT SHOULD ACTUALLY SWITCH TO IT,

****WITHOUT THE DENSITY BEING ON 160 THE PHONE WONT RECOGNIZE THE SCREEN SIZES SO I WONT WORK***********
****DONT LIKE HOW IT LOOKS ON MY EVO ON LANDSCAPE CUZ ALL PARTS ALL KIND OF MESSED UP SO I PREFER ON PORTRAIT MOD, IT MIGHT WORK NORMAL ON SOME OTHER ROMS****

ALSO, DELL WIDGETS WONT WORK WITH OTHER LAUNCHER, JUST THE DELL STAGE LAUNCHER,

one problem i had was that the social widget wont let me sign on, not sure if it just me or it requireds something else, if anyone gets it to work let me know, evrything else works perfectly

this was tested on HTC EVO, if it doesnt work for some phones dont bother asking me why it doesnt.


HERES A VIDEO IF U GUYS WANNA KNOW WHAT U DOWNLOADING
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NnvL22Y_gg

ENJOY...

download link:
http://www.4shared.com/file/o0CQSj5u/Dell_Stage_Apks.html

to download unzip the files (7zip) open the folder and drag the apks to ur sd card and than go to ur phone and use astro manager, or any other file manager and install like any other app.
(srry i cant download evry single apk its to big of a file)

download stage launcher apk first, and than the widgets.


update:11/8/10

FOR SOME REASON THE PHONE BUTTON, MIGHT NOT WORK IF UR NOT ROOTED OR ROOTED WITH CUSTOM ROM,
ANY PHONE THAT HAS A SPECIAL NAME FOR THE "PHONE" APK, LIKE DROID'S (blurphone APK)AND SOME HTC WHERE THE PHONE APK ITS NOT JUST NAME AS "PHONE" APK, THE LAUNCHER WONT RECOGNIZE THE "PHONE" BUTTON ON THE DELL LAUNCHER,

THE ONLY WAY I BELIEVE FOR ROOT USER ONLY , TO MAKE THE PHONE BUTTON WORK ITS TO REPLACE THE CUSTOM NAME "APK" TO STOCK "PHONE" APK WITH ADB PUSH OR ROOT EXPLORE, I HAVE NOT TEST THIS METHOD OUT YET MYSELF, SO BACKUP UR ROM BEFORE TRYING, IM NOT RESPOSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE.
(THIS SHOULD BE DONE WITH ADVANCE USERS ONLY, PLEASE DONT TRY TO REPLACE THE PHONE APK IF U DONT KNOW WHAT UR DOING, U WILL MESSED UP UR CUSTOM ROM)

I TEST THIS OUT ON THE CUSTOM MIUI ROM AND EVRYTHING WORKS FOR ME EXCEPT THE SOCIAL WIDGET.

Hey,

this Launcher runs on HTC Desire with stock Density ;)

I have 2 Questions.

1. Can you Include the Widget in the Launcher apk?

2. Can you export only the Widget for another Launcher?

all launchers required there own framework...so thats why any launcher u used like launcher pro, adw, sense, etc cant used there widgets.

same with this launcher, Widgets wont work without the Dell Launcher.

and i believe if u included the widgets wit the launcher, the widgets wont work, its a good thing dell separate the widgets, so now it work for must phones.

Very nice I'm impressed landscape mode doesn't hold well with lcd density. I get a lot of force close but good app might keep around for a while with some work this could be a launcher to be recon with

Confirmed working on the Droid X. A little laggy at first, and it crashed in landscape (Tried again and worked fine, but the widgets are squished.).

Landscape worked on my Droid 1 stock density, surprisingly. I'm overclocked to 1.25GHz if that makes a difference.

EDIT: It works, but the widgets stay squished when I switch back to portrait and I get some random FCs.

seems to be lots of launchers based on launcher pro, ADW etc
even the SE x10 launcher mimics the design.
wouldnt surprise me if they are ripping the base code and adding their own extra's

eh its alright

[technically...Launcherpro & ADW were based off launchers themselves. You lose.]

i lose? this isnt some type of argument or competition its just something ive noted
Its like the manufacturers cba thinking of anything so they bolt it on to a pre-existing look and feel as its easier

launcher pro and adw took the home part of the design from the n1 right? after that everything is pretty much unique

this launcher along with x10 looks pretty much the same as launcherpro/adw
only the widgets and addons that are different.

Just installed fine on my HD2 using meejay's froyo sense. It was crashing when i was using a 180 density (my usual) but hasn't crashed since i changed to 160, also landscape worked in 180. It seems it is playing nice with all my other launchers as well.

It works completely fine on my rooted Evo, but on the bottom dock, when I click the phone icon it either crashes on me, or "Application is not installed on your phone"

    I tried the new apk and I still get "application not installed" at the end of the install process. I don't know?

    Not sure of the order you did things but, uninstall all current dell Widgets and launcher. Then install my launcher and Widgets.
