    Angry Screen Re-draw madness!!

    I just switched from LithMod 1.0.12 to CM6.0.0 and am having the worst time with screen re-draws. Constantly. Everytime I play any game, look at a webpage in my browser, or go on the Android Market, when I return to my homescreen everything is blank and I have to wait 10-15 seconds for the screen to come back. I didn't have this happen on LithMod, but on CM6, it happens constantly. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Can anyone recommend a launcher and settings for the launcher that can prevent this? I have tried LauncherPro and ADW without success.

    More Info:
    -Droid 1
    -Not using Live Wallpapers
    -Widgets Used: Beautiful widgets, CM6 power widget, setcpu widget, and FB widget
    -5 home screens
    -Fiddled with memory usage settings on LauncherPro, no dice.

    Any help is appreciated


    Edit: Before anyone asks. YES, I did wipe three times before flashing to CM6.

    Wiping three times is an urban myth - One wipe is enough.

    Try changing the "lock home in memory" setting in CM rather than LP. It should be under Settings | CyanogenMod | Performance. I've had good luck using that with ADW, and I imagine it will be similar with LP. Home apps aren't able to actually enforce the "keep in memory" option (they can only suggest it), but the ROM itself is able to actually enforce it. The only time I get redraws in CM6 with ADW is when I change an ADW setting that requires a restart of ADW.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    Had terrible luck with latest LP and re-draws. I might have to go back to prior version.

    The system persistent option under adw settings has worked quite well for me. Also a kernel that allows for compcache may help.

    This seems to be the real deal to help with this issue... I tried it without LP in memory and it worked great...

    I used to think the wiping three times thing was silly and unnecessary. I'm the Director of Info Sys at a large construction company, so I used to laugh at people who bothered to wipe 3x. Then I had a series of problems when installing a JRummy ROM, installed it two times and wouldn't get past the 'M' logo. Then I pulled the battery, booted into recovery and wiped 3x (rather than once, like before), reinstalled the ROM and didn't have a problem after that.

    I tried the "keep in memory" option, it seems to be working better. But it still redraws every once in a while. I guess I can't have everything...

    The "keep in memory" option and compcache combo seems to work well for me. I occasionally have a redraw with ADW but not nearly as often as I used to pre-compcache.

    I would also take a look at your home screens and remove any widgets you dont find necessary. I went from 5 homescreens to 4, and reduced the number of widgets. I think the less memory your launcher takes up the less chance it has to be killed

    I will confirm that setting launcher pro memory use / cache to moderate / compressed as suggested has totally fixed redraws for me.

    samsonite801 has a script/toggle that worked wonders for my lag issues!!! it is:

    If you use ADW or LauncherPro and if after using your browser, email or any other apps for awhile, then if you press the 'HOME' button, if it takes forever to redraw your home screen, and you are sick of that HORRIBLE LAG, then try this: In a terminal, type su and enter. Then type echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop and enter. Then reboot. Now evaluate whether or not this fixes your lag. If you want to undo what this command does, simply remove that toggle from: /data/local.prop

    i haven't tried the other links posted (cuz i got it fixed, and never had to go further), so i can't comment on their effectiveness...

    Try removing the Set CPU widget or setting its refresh rate over 15 sec.
