i prefer motoblur to other UIs such as htc Sense and TouchWiz, but i would like to try the default android UI

You can try default Android UI on phones w/ HTC Sense and possible others:

Go to setting, then applications,then manage applications...

Now find the UI app (my Eris was called "HTC Sense")

Click on it and you will see "clear defaults" about half way down.

Click to clear (if you don't see "click to clear" you are in wrong app).

Once done:

Click your phones "Home" button and you will see a popup screen that will give you the option to choose the Android standard "Home" or the one you had been using.

Note: do not click the "use by default" checkbox until you want one of them to truly be your default. Each time you click your phones "Home" button you will get the popup option screen until you do click the box.

Have fun trying the Standard Android UI

Thank you very much justjay, but motoblur is a whole set of apps rather than htc Sense having an app you can clear defaults on. I tried what you said on my friend's Eris, and it worked, but that method sadly wont for me.

Have you tried to install any Home Replacment Apps like Helix Launcher or Quick Desk to override MotoBlur?

i couldnt find Helix Launcher in the market, and i tried Quick Desk, but it wouldnt get the job done, it only worked in cooperation with my current launcher.

i am in the US, and im still running 1.6 on my devour.

*facepalm* I don't know why I thought you had an Android 2.1 device. I think I thought you had an EVO for some reason. Hmm... I'll look into Android 1.6 home launchers.

edit: try ADW launcher, it sounds promising. website article about it: http://www.blogsdna.com/10703/adw-launcher-now-available-on-android-market-no-root-needed.htm

AndroidPIT App "ADW Launcher" database link

When I run Kies with my Samsung Captivate connected via USB I receive a box that says Please reconnect the device in Samsung Kies (PC Studio) mode. The current connection mode is not supported by Kies.

When I set it Samsung Kies, it doesn't recognize that the phone is connected.

The screen on the phone shows a USB plug and says connected.

The computer screen shows a window that says No device connected.
