As tested on 'New' Singapore ROM S7V100R001C62B011
ADW Launcher Free

Couldn't place Ideos Weather on, but my widgets seem okay?

ASI, Calendar, GenieWidget, Clock, and EliotStocker Music widget

To fix, get http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=780828 to be placed to /system/app

If you don't have root explorer and prefer ADB, grab ADB drivers from Huawei.
Then grab SuperOneClick: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682
Do shell root

This makes adb pushing easy.

Code:
adb remount
adb push AppWidgetPicker.apk /system/app/
adb shell chmod 644 /system/app/AppWidgetPicker.apk
(having renamed the apk)

Haven't tried other launchers yet, but should work just fine.

Great! I'm gonna load this one up now, I have wanted widgets on LPP since the day I got this device.

This is absolutely excellent! is there much delay when reloading the home screen? seemed like it was that way with this launcher on my droid. This device seems to have more layers, there are a few process Id love to kill and then customer launchers will prob run more smooth...

is this running smoothly now?

For apps giving force close error, restore then from titanium backup, or reinstall them. That should fix it.
