    Since this is the closest thread to the problem I just had for the first time on my phone too (Droid 1) it is probably more wide spread. I was thinking about a shot I took last night and went to hit the gallery and noticed it wasn't there....so I thumbed through the five screens I have and well---couldn't find it. Okay---something I did took them off. I went to put them all back on and then while I was about to let go of the screen I caught a glimpse of the icons on the screen. The icons flashed on the screen and off. I did a double blink like I had just saw a ghost and let the icon go. As soon as I did, tada. They were back.......so, it's likely a broader issue, and was my first time in seeing anything like it. Just mentioning it.
    Some days...you cannot run the show...just go with it. Why? The word mutiny. Because? My mutiny wins when I have had my fill. Today I am likely just going with it....

    I have been one of the many people that are extremely frustrated by redraws and lag. I read up on people's advice - I moved any apps (2) from my sdcard back to my phone. I uninstalled advanced task killer, and I reduced the number of icons and widgets on my home screens. I'm not sure which of these tips actually fixed it, but I have practically no redraws or lag. Try these steps and let me know if it helped.

    I've had similar issues, and I think you're right. I also think it's going to be a while before developers write apps in such a way that they operate efficiently from an "external" source. In the mean time, it may be helpful to look for apps that are running in the background more often, and if those apps are on the sdcard, try moving them back.

    With the new 22D full install and Launcher Pro Plus settings redraws are waaaay down.

    Also, FWIW, I find exiting out of an app via back key (or quit option) as opposed to hitting the home key seems to make a difference, but YMMV.

    I think you got something here. It seems random when jumping straight to home, sometimes I get the home screen sometimes I get slow redraws. One thing starts it for me (slow redraws) is every time I jump out of navigation.

    Tried to minimize the number of icons, no change.
    Tried to draw a circle, na da.
    Didn't move apps from SD card because problem started before I knew how to move an app to the card.
    Started maps, searched a business and hit navigation. Got the oddly cheerful voice telling me to turn right, and I backed out all the way and hazzah!
    Home screen no re-draw. Tried a bunch of apps and websites, when I backed out no redraws! WTF?
    Is there something wrong with the way multitasking uses memory?

    I think I have a similar problem. I have a Moto Droid and sometimes when I slide the lock button over to unlock the screen, the screen freezes for about 2 seconds. Not a biggie, but still annoying.


    Any ideas??

    I just moved all my apps to my phone and uninstalled a bunch more. Only 1 app was on my SD. Then I did a battery pull while the phone was on. When the phone came back on I still had a pretty big delay for the screen being populated and then after it was I couldn't swipe to the other screens for a good 4-5 seconds.

    Both 2.2 and 2.2 update were received OTA.

    What's the latest on the home screen icon delay?

    Well, it has been two months since this thread started. What is the general consensus on the solution to the icon delay issue? (since I still have the problem)

    The only thing that seems to work for me is to clear the cashe and keep as much memory free as possible. I'm not sure that it really does anything but ya gotta do something.
