    Droid 1, Rooted, Ultimate Droid New Era Rom, GDE home running Windows 7 Theme. When I back out of an app I get a "App Toasted" window that pops up, then the GDE force closes. Any ideas what might cause that? Any solutions? Thanks in advance.

    This means you have the "Stop apps via long-press" option that is part of UD enabled. Apparently, you are long-pressing to back out of the app, instead of just giving it a quick tap. What this option does is it kills off the foreground app when the back button is long-pressed. The reason GDE is force closing is that at that point, it IS the foreground app. This is the main drawback to leaving this feature enabled.

    To disable it, go to Settings --> Applications --> Development and uncheck the "Stop app via long-press" checkbox. To re-enable it, do the opposite.

    I moved this one to U.D. since it's exclusive to that. Interesting feature.
