    Long lag time to home screen

    Ever since the 2.2 upgrade my Droid has a lag of ~10 seconds to bring up the home screen from any app. If I go to the list of Apps from there it can take up to 15 seconds for them to show. This has gotten to be beyond frustrating. Has this been reported elsewhere? Are there any know fixes?

    It's been reported a LOT. It's called a screen redraw and a few options have been offered, though few of them are complete "fixes". Are you rooted? Are you running an alternative launcher?

    No root, no launcher. Last night I uninstalled Beautiful Widgets and disabled Locale. The problem went away, like having an new phone. I enabled Locale and the problem came back, not as bad as with BW, but bad enough. It is a shame, I like Locale, but it isn't worth it. I'm thinking of trying Tasker to see if that will work.

    Yeah, widgets hit the Droid particularly hard, especially stock users, unfortunately.

    Mine is much better now since I got rid of BW and Local. I'm using Tasker now. I do get a bit of a lag randomly, but it is worth it. I don't think Tasker is doing the amount of polling that Locale did.

    Darn I wish you were rooted. I was having crazy redraw with LauncherPro untill I used a Terminal Emulator command, and now I have had like 1 quick redraw in the past week. Its super fast and always in memory now. (and I have 7 screens with a whole bunch of widgets)

    I have same problem, but I see it when I close the browser. Stock, LauncherPro, BW. I'm going to root one of these days but pretty frustrating in the mean time.

    A little OT, but what is the benefit of rooting. Can you (or somebody) point me to a good thread on it?
