    I think this single feature makes PE GB dominate and I keep home, fancy widget pro as i am fancy and not beautiful and swipe-pad.
    Never looked back, and I really think that the longer my OG has had the GB ROMs out now on it the better everything seems to get.
    In fact I don't even lose data connection after phone anymore, it may go 1g but for maybe a second.
    But this mod of options of which apps to lock is amazing and should be patented by the geniuses behind it.
    Also I have noticed that with my OG ever since GB my phone never heats up and i mean nevah evah.
    I use same kernels that I did on froyo customs on some GBs but they could definitely get hot not just warm.
    I also have never missed a text on handcent or a single gmail or phone call.
    I really do think that what the apps on the phone are makes all the difference in the world.
    I mean there are a ton that are constantly connected to net, and they all would be used more than likely if one would.
    I imagine things like twitter and facebook always are either both kept or not, me not.
    Then there are tons of extra chat and im things and that means a ton of memory devotion or killing and restarting by GB and then the app and cycle owning the battery big time.

    Hi I too use the the HOME_APP command line, but dont really know how to construct or add another entry to the local.prop file. Could you give me any kind of direction? I want to put my dropbox app in it because I use memory killer pro and it keeps cutting off my uploads before completion if the phone goes dim.

I found this on forum way back when and it works like a charm for me. Most of you may know this as well but I have told a good many people about it and a lot still haven't heard of it.

    *In no way am I taking credit for this but I do not know the source, I stumbled on it a long time ago.*
    open terminal emulator then type su and press enter

    then type this on the next line- echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop

    press enter and then reboot
    After performing these steps redraws are very few and far between with LauncherPro loaded with 5 pages and 5 or so widgets.

    Secondly I wanted to see what the deal is with other users and locking some other apps in memory. The only problems I have been running into with PE GB killing apps is winamp. I will be playing a song and try to hop on the browser and winamp would get killed and stop playing. I have since locked it into memory and it seems to have cured it. I can load up my dolphin mini browser with tons of tabs and some flash content and winamp still plays like a champ through it all. The devs are warning people about leaving apps locked in and having too many locked in. I have been running with home and winamp locked in memory without unlocking winamp after using it and I can't see a difference. I am getting no lag or additional redraws.

    Is anyone seeing problems with leaving additional apps locked into memory? it just seems like a hassel to have to go in and unlock apps after using them (maybe except pandora or other really havy ones) so I plan on leaving winamp locked until I have problems. Just wanted to see what other users have to say about this new feature which is awesome so far.

    P.S. ^sorry for the book^
