I had a lag using Helix 2 so I disabled the auto-rotation which resolved it.
I didn't like it either. I'm running Ultimate Droid 8.0 with Chevys 1ghz on there and it seemed a tiiiny bit slower, but what really killed it for me was how it looked. Everything on the bottom row looked so crammed together next to the Helix, like the spacing was all off. Probably just my OCD kicking in, but I couldn't deal with it.
I love the normal Launcher2, if only that ran smooth enough to keep around. Invisible left/right apps on that launcher is all I really need.
Is that really necessary?
How many widgets and such do you have on your screens?
Hmm interesting I've never had any problems with HelixLauncher, HelixLauncher2 was kinda iffy for me though it worked but was really slow.
It's not about overclocking either (IMO) as for a time I was running underclocked @ 400mhz with helix launcher and it was fine ;
Im rooted and OCd with sg 6 and Im using a skinned helixmod1. Running all 7 screens with tons of widgets and its blazing fast, much snappier than the stock home scren.
I am at stock 2.0.1 no root with Helix 1 launcher. No lags. No FC. Works just as fast as the stock launcher with some goodies tossed in - more than three screens, docking apps at the bottom, etc. Loving it so far.
Helix 1 has been perfect for me. 7 screens, bugless beast, usually clocked at 900.
Running fine for me. Smoked Glass 6.0.1 @ 600 MHz. Helix 1, 7 screens, 12 widgets.
i think you fail too, clark grizwald. i have other words for fail, but i'll stick with that...
WTF is that contributing to anything?
Talk about fail.
I'm lovin it too! My Droid isn't as fast as it was changing screens, but I like what Helix provides.
I am not keen to jump on the fail wagon, but on my non-rooted stock 2.0.1 Droid, I am experiencing some lag, too. The seven screens is worth it though. I'm waiting for the 2.1 upgrade to see what happens with it. I don't have any force closes, FWIW.
I too have had great luck with helix 1. This is with both stock speeds and overclocked to 1.1 Ghz. The results were also the same with stock ROM (not rooted) and Bugless Beast.
I haven't busted out the high speed camera to measure minute amounts lag but running stock w/ 5 screens in H1 has no perceptible lag over the normal home screen.
