    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to run your excellent batch. Here is why:

    mounting /system as read/write
    remount succeeded

    pushing Launcher2.apk
    failed to copy ‘Launcher2.apk’ to ‘/system/app/Launcher2.apk': Read-only file sy
    stem

    backing up ADWLauncher.apk
    mv: can’t rename ‘/system/app/ADWLauncher.apk': Read-only file system

    I’ve tried all imaginable to turn /system in to RW
    (root-explorer didn’t do the trick)

      have you changed the path of the file or have you entered the path correctly?

        It’s a problem related with rooting… maybe if we add chmod in a temp directory it will work!!! thanks anyway… I love that launcher
