Having the best home screen includes having a great looking wallpaper, a good design, and now includes being able to launch applications right from there. The launcher was not made but rather recommended by XDA member iamdarren. He says the launcher is great, fast, stable and offers many options for customization.

The one i am using at the moment, is very very fast with alot of options check it out.

Guide to Avoid Scratches Behind Milestone/Droid Display

HPIM1959

Although the Motorola Droid and Milestone’s build quality is very good, there are some hardware shortcomings to the devices. One of them is the fact that the sliding mechanism could scratch the back of the display pretty easily.
Forum member dproldan has found a pretty good solution for this by simply sticking some tape on the back of the phone.
Fortunately, he shared this mod with us, and made a nice little guide which illustrates the procedure very well.

If you like the color blue and have an Android Cyanogenmod powered device, this new themed ROM might be something for you. XDA member jeagoss created an ‘Extremely Blue’ themed ROM for the Nexus One, the Motorola Droid, and the HTC Dream (G1).

I really didn’t change icons or too many images. I mainly just made all orange / yellow hints blue, and added blue hints to everything. My aim is to make a completely unified blue theme on the base cyanogenmod rom. The theme also has glossy blue bars on the launcher.

TheDude came up with an overlay to theme components of cyanog
