  4. Hi! Thanks for this awesome blog, I have one question. I love cyanogenmod, but only thing I don't like, app drawer icons look ugly and pixelated. Is there any other way to fix this than changing launcher?

    I use launcherpro eversince i bought my phone with stock froyo. But is runs more than perfect on CM 7.2rc5 to! Never used the standard ADW launcher from CM. Maybe give it a try?

    Hello Yagya,

    Thanks again for this. I have flashed several roms with it. I never had a real problem. Only thing better not to do is use the "fix permissions" option. After i tryed this, i had to do a data wipe and thus reinstall all apps and settings...
    By the way, it's not really compatible with the 'Rom Manager' app, which i banned from my phone a while ago!

  7. And that's exactly what I'm using! :) yackovsky

  8. ADW Laucher provides many customizations so check them out at Settings>>ADW Launcher Settings and explorer through it. You can change settings to make it look nice and managed. ANd, if I am not getting you wrong then you mean icons are conjusted in app drawer and if you see my screenshots or videos of CM7 then you will surely find laucher beautiful there. Or, you can alternatively use another launcher too.

  9. mr yagya what are the difference between this clockwork mod and the clockwork mod 4

  10. Nothing... not much difference in the features we get. But, the difference is in UI -- a new theme as well as squadzone added a option (Go back) in different menus -- and not much. It looks nice with blue color... give it a try and see. :)

  11. sorry for my earlier comment ,its just no mean here cuz i got the solution between thanx for the awesome blog!

  12. I cant restore backups with this version of CWM.I use CM 7.2 rc. 5.Help.

  13. i used adwlauncherEX it is more organize than default launcher of cm7..why cm7 dont use go launcher? i used it it looks good too.. 

  14. I can't reply that question. We need to ask Cyanogen team why they prefer ADW launcher. BTW, it is true ADW is one of the best launcher available out there.
