1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Greeting fellow Android-ians. I have an original Droid that has been driving me a bit crazy so I started looking for a place to share my angst (and hopefully get some answers!).

    I came here looking for an answer to why the launcher refreshes so slowly. Often it takes up t 30 seconds to refresh when returning from the phone app after a call. I have tried clearing cache and giving the phone more unused memory (currently about 43MB). I gotta be missing something!

    If your rooted and have a custom rom installed then you can try locking home in memory.

    I guess I would be considered a Droid 'virgin'. I have no idea how to root my device. I see a lot of talk about rooted devices (good and bad) but have not tried that. Do you have a site that you can share to get me started?
