    homescreen lag?

    running 5.0.6.2 jrummy stock theme.

    i never had this problem before so im prettymuch hoping its something i screwed up myself, and will be fixed upon a /data wipe.

    i partitioned my sdcard to run apps2sd.
    wiped /data and /cache
    restored all my sdcard stuff from my comp
    then installed 5.0.6.2 jrummy stock
    enabled apps2d
    restored everything via titanium backup
    i also 'froze' alot of unused /system apps like google talk/voice etc.

    now when i press home, it takes me to my middle homescreen which consists of beautiful home widget (the old one before the cease and desist) calwidget and the astrid widget. i do realize this screen uses up alot of memory cuz of the widgets, but i didn't have a problem before.

    anyways, whenever i get to the home screen, i try to go to the left or right screen and my swipe basically doesn't register. it'll take about 1-2 seconds of constant swiping and then it'll register and itl'l take me to the very left screen or the last screen on the right.

    I believe that it is HelixLauncher2.

    You may want to post this in the jrummy section, however.

    Two things:

    Disable Live Wallpapers and see if the problem still persists.

    Enable "Launcher in memory" option in spare parts.

    Does "launcher in memory" apply to the Helix launchers?

    you have to do a softmod to it.

    $su
    #mount -o remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    #mv /system/app/Launcher2.apk /system/app/Launcher2.apk.bak
    #mv /system/app/HelixLauncher2.apk /system/app/Launcher2.apk
    #sync
    #reboot

    then set the launcher in memory.

    What exactly is this "mod" doing?

    I have noticed with this Rom that there is time that when you press the home screen it takes a second or two for it to load and it completely wipes out the screen then reloads the icons? What is the cause for this does anyone know. I am running cyan 5.0.6.2 with jrummys blue theme?

    It is the launcher you are using, I can for the most part guarantee, that if you use the native home launcher, this will not happen.
