I had noticed lately that more redraws were creeping back in for me on SS 4.6. On 4.5 I had reduced the LP redraws to very reasonable levels. So why had they come back? I installed 4.6 over the top and basically hadn't changed anything... in fact, I had actually uninstalled more things than I added.
Then something occurred to me... now, keep reading, this is NOT what you'd expect at first. On 4.5 I had tried the trick of using MinFreeManager and trying the "aggressive" settings. It hadn't improved my situation. So I then told MinFreeManager to set everything back to "default" presets, and apply at boot. Things eventually got faster again although I didn't attribute it at the time to that particular action.
So on 4.6 with more redraws, I thought, what if that default setting actually changed and iimproved things? If the default ROM settings are different, then repeating that step might change something. So last night, I opened MinFreeManger, applied default settings at boot, then rebooted.
And wouldn't you know it... immediately, less redraws! More speed!
When I took my Droid off my desk dock this morning, the home screen even came up right away THEN... and usually, that particular action ALWAYS causes a redraw.
Anyone with SS 4.6 and launcherpro experiencing too many redraws still... give this a try... help me see if I'm not just smoking crack or something.
Oh and for the record... I use Widgetlocker with the home helper enabled, but I no longer use quickdesk or anything else that gets in the way. 3 screens, only a few widgets, 2D app drawer... and yet I was still getting those pesky redraws before doing this.
