rooted and oc'ed with helix 1 on ultimate droid and it doesn't lag one bit. Its a beast
I didn't like it either. I'm running Ultimate Droid 8.0 with Chevys 1ghz on there and it seemed a tiiiny bit slower, but what really killed it for me was how it looked. Everything on the bottom row looked so crammed together next to the Helix, like the spacing was all off. Probably just my OCD kicking in, but I couldn't deal with it.
I love the normal Launcher2, if only that ran smooth enough to keep around. Invisible left/right apps on that launcher is all I really need.
Hmm interesting I've never had any problems with HelixLauncher, HelixLauncher2 was kinda iffy for me though it worked but was really slow.
It's not about overclocking either (IMO) as for a time I was running underclocked @ 400mhz with helix launcher and it was fine o.O;
