Is there any way for me to install Gingerbread's vanilla launcher application? So far, I prefer the "stock" Sony Ericsson launcher but I do want to know what the actual Gingerbread launcher is like.
There are several versions uploaded to the Play Store. I cannot personally attest to the safety or nature of them, but they generally all claim to be "pulled from the SDK" or similar.
One exception is that I do recall trying the one named "Android 2.3 Launcher (Home)" briefly in the past and it worked fine and wasn't doing anything shady (it's review average is ~4.2 stars at the moment).
