    ADW keeps restarting

    Since updating to 5.0 ADW keeps restarting after I use another app. For example I open browser go to a website once done I hit the home button to go back to desktop and the icons are all gone and takes a min or two to come back. Any ideas anyone?

    I was having the same problem. I would open something as simple as the phone settings for 20 seconds and ADW would have to restart.

    I turned off compcache and ran the following at the command line:
    Code:
    su
    echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop
    reboot
    This locks the home screen into memory and reboots the phone.

    My redraw / restarts have almost completely disappeared.

    Chevy, if you happen to see this, I'd vote to have that turned into a check box in the settings.

    i can 100% guarantee that compcache was not the culprit. gingerbread kills tasks like no other os we have had. the keep in home code will help, but most important is removing any launcher your not using. So if your using adw make sure to delete launcher 2
    oh, and check to see if the launcher is installed on the phone or sd card

    You can also raise the vm heap size and reboot.

    that is iffy vm heap allows more memory to be devoted to apps that use a lot of memory, which takes memory away from other programs that may need it. on my phone(and this is phone specific as each phone is running different stuff) the stock values work best 24 i think it is

    If you're using launcherpro will this fix the problem as well?

    It did for me. I went back to 4.9.6 anyway, but this was the fix to stop 5.0 from redrawing all the time in ADW and LP

    no go for me after reboot this trick worked for 15 minutes and as of now I get redraws after exiting any app. Maybe this command did not stick?
