Open the zipped rom, navigate to /system/app, delete Launcher2.apk (or similar), place in desired launcher, copy zip to device, flash.

Easy peasy.

Alternatively, if you've already flashed and have adb setup and wanted to replace Launcher2 with the apk located in: c:\apks\org.adw.launcher.apk:

Adb remount

adb shell

cd /system/app

rm Launcher2.apk

<Ctrl-C>

adb push c:\apks\org.adw.launcher.apk /system/app

<edit> oops, typo

should read /system/app

I presume then that you can also use Titanium Backup the same way you would remove the pre-installed Orange crap? I've removed all sorts of stuff that way but I've never dared remove the stock launcher... yet. ;)

I replaced the stock Launcher with Launcher Pro the easy/lazy way.

I installed Launcher Pro, rebooted the phone and selected LP as my preferred Launcher when the option popped up after reboot! Using JJ8.

I want to install it as the default launcher in a rom update to send the kids next time 2.2 gets updated

They live 300-3000 miles away so it's simpler for me to sort out a rom, do any changes I want to it and then put whatever theme changes need doing and then just give them a download link to flash the rom itself with nothing else to do apart from sign into google

If I remove launcher2.apk from the rom do I just simply replace it with the launcherpro.apk, or do I have to rename the launcher pro app to launcher2.apk first?

Anyone about a solution of making a launcher default, when I have more? I want to keep the stock one, as it has the backgrounds, but nothing more...

Is it wise to remove the stock launcher? Isnt it the only way you can change the lockscreen wallpaper? I use launcher pro but need to switch to the stock launcher whenever I want to change the lockscreen wallpaper as there is no option to change it in launcher pro.

I "thought" the lock screen wallpaper was in the framework-res.apk? or is that the default wallpaper and not the lock one?

or are they both the same?
