    I just installed Sholes 1.2, and so far I'm impressed. Everything seems to work as advertised. The 2.1 Launcher is crazy slow, though, so I just went back to Home++ again.

    So far the only major problem is that the 2.1 Gallery crashes HARD - Requires a battery pull or it reboots itself.

    I just tried a clear cache + data. Took a long time to start the next time, but I got the same problem again.

    It should be noted that I have a few large movies on there - 500mb+. Any thoughts, suggestions?

    I found the cause (my cause, anyway). I reverted back to Gallery 2.01 and found that Gallery was STILL causing the droid to crash/reboot.

    Turns out, the videos being created by QIK are somehow not playing nicely with Gallery. Once I deleted those videos, Gallery was happy again, even the 2.1 version. Hope this helps somebody else!
