    That would be good but after engadget's review, I'm waiting on the Atrix
    I'd love an Atrix, but the locked bootloader worries me a little.

    A) I like Launcher Pro a lot.
    B) When Ice Cream comes out in Q4, I'd bet it features HW acceleration for the UI. That'd be mint tbh. I don't wanna be left behind! Hopefully it'll be updated... Still, nothing else can touch it.

    Can't you use launcher pro without unlocking the bootloader? Even so, it has been unlocked and it does have a custom ROM already, albeit quite difficult to install but it has been done

    I could, but I feel there'd still be MotoBleurgh running in the background, or at least some of it's services.

    Where's this unlocked bootloader you speak of? The dev thread in XDA seems quite quiet...

    Everyone check out SPB Mobile Shell 5.0 BETA (Your usual site off course :ninja2: )

    It's super impressive, full GPU accelerated and it's got a 3D interface for homescreens, my housemate (who loves Apple) why like 'OH ****'. I wouldn't replace it long term for Laucnher Pro but it might have been the most impressive thing I've ever seen on Android.

    It's not been unlocked.

    I quoted you though, they have rooted/installed a quasi-custom ROM.
    Nothing monumental yet.

    I didn't think it had, but I lived in hope!

    Yeah, just been reading about it. It's so frustrating that the Xoom is open and this isn't!

    That must have been what I saw. This is all I can find on engadget http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/19/m...-even-out-yet/ but I could swear I had seen a post where they got a custom rom onto it

    "Your copy of SPB... is not activated..."

    EDIT: NVM, not supported.

    Which is odd because they demo'd this (laggy though) on a Nexus One.

    Yeah I think they're working on compatibility, I'm surprised just how smooth it is though, it's smoother than Launcher Pro and that was pretty smooth before.

    What's with the epic music?

    It's a pretty sweet launcher...maybe when it's out of beta I might try using it more often.

    This might seem like an obvious thing to ask but you're sure you've unzipped the whole contents of hack4legend-v5.zip into the tools directory?
