I've tried to install the stock 2.3 launcher (launcher2) from a number of sources on my SGS2, what happens is it will start, but with a completely black screen and you get the buttons when menu is pressed and so on, and you can even long press the screen to bring up the context menu, but no wallpaper ect.
Now, I know there are two versions you can install off the market, one that I am talking about (3D drawer) and a modaco one that paul put on there (No 3D drawer), I was after the one with the 3D launcher. (Sorry Paul, trying to get a really stock look) :-p
Any idea's anyone? Does it do the same for you? Or am I missing summat obvious?
