First off I would like to say that in other roms the lock home in memory check box never really worked all that well for me. if for some reason locking home in memory doesn't seem to end redraws for you then this is what I suggest. 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^
