    Hello,

    I am running UD v9 without live wallpapers and nearly every time I hit the home button to go back to the home screen after being in an app it takes 10 - 20 seconds to redraw the icons and widgets. I am currently running helix2 but the same issue comes up with launcher2 and if I remember correctly helix1 and home has the same problem. Is this normal or is my DROID messed up?

    i did have this problem before but then tried this and it really helped out.

    1. Download the app "Spare Parts" from the market
    2. Go into it and down at the very bottom you see "Home app in memory" check the box next to it and it will really speed things up when you go back to your desktop

    I don't see that option in spare parts. It is as follows:

    battery history
    battery info
    usage stats
    window animations
    transition animations
    fancy input animations
    fancy rotation animations
    end button behavior
    haptic feedback
    compatibility mode
    wifi sleep policy
    activity process management
    brightness mode
    font size
    show compass in maps

    The spare parts he is referring to is special modded version in the cyanogen Rom i already have this applied but it still takes really long for the launcher to reload after exiting an app

    10-20 seconds? Is that without exaggerating?? Because that's way too long

    My complaint about CM 5.0.5 after DM 1.0 was that it took like 2 or 3 seconds to redraw. And that, among a few other speed issues, was why I went back to DM.
