    Got my new DX2 and love it. Installed Launcher Pro Plus on it like I did on my DX.

    It seems that everytime I go to my home screen it has to refresh the page. It's getting to to point where I don't want to use it anymore.

    Has anyone seen this? I've tried all the settings in LauncherPro but it still refreshes the screen every time I go to Home.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    When you say refresh are you talking about redraw?? Like it lags loading the home screen??

    The redraw lags. Sometimes its instant but most times it lags and has to redraw each icon. Takes up valuable time.

    Thanks

    It's happening to me, too. Seems to be a memory problem, possibly. Happens less with less widgets on the homepages. Could just be a coincidence, dunno. It's really annoying, that's for sure.

    Do you have the option checked to keep LP in memory/cache or however it's worded? That may help if not.

    That sounded like kind of a bad thing, but I suppose I could try it. I've heard that it doesn't make much difference with redraws usually. Will give it a shot.

    Negatory. Very first thing I tried it redrew again. It seems to happen everytime without fail when I go to the market and exit out. Happens pretty randomly with other apps.

    Try running the echo.ro command that locks home in memory. It usually works for me.

    Try running the supercharge script and run line 8 should fix any redraws in LP

    I use 3 of the LP widgets, so that's not a preferred solution.
