I just installed Sholes 1.2, and so far I'm impressed. Everything seems to work as advertised. The 2.1 Launcher is crazy slow, though, so I just went back to Home++ again.
So far the only major problem is that the 2.1 Gallery crashes HARD - Requires a battery pull or it reboots itself.
I just tried a clear cache + data. Took a long time to start the next time, but I got the same problem again.
It should be noted that I have a few large movies on there - 500mb+. Any thoughts, suggestions?
