ADW.Launcher is a wonderful application that replaces the home screen on Android and for us poor G1 owners, adds loads of features found in later versions of Android 🙂
This morning I turned my phone on and nothing, black blank screen, there is the status bar but nothing else 🙁 Could not load any apps or anything! HELP!
At this point I thought I was going to have to do a hard reset to get it back. Fortunately I decided to put it down and have a think before doing anything rash. What I needed to do was get into the Settings menu, but how?
The keyboard shortcuts was the key (if you forgive the pun) sadly there is no shortcut to the settings but it can be done.
Slide the keyboard out and press the Menu key and the B key. This brings up the browser, then press the search key (magnifying glass) button twice, this brings up the Search dialog box then type in Settings. Then a drop down search results box will appear and then you can select “Settings (Application)”. Then go into Applications -> ADW.Launcher and then in the Defaults part, click the Clear Defaults option. Then when you press the home button you can select Home instead of ADW.Launcher 🙂
I then re-installed ADW.Launcher and everything is back to normal, lost the ADW.Launcher settings but I would rather have that that a hard reset.
