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.
help please helixlauncher off market
i have a moto droid stock non rooted 2.0.1
i download the helix and it installs however i cant seam to find where to set the number of homes
Just hit menu/configure and its right there on the top of the list
Did you forget to take everything off the stock home screens?
I didn't notice any lag with my stock 2.0.1.
Haven't tried with 2.1 update 1 installed yet.
Mine lags a bit with 5 screens and half a dozen widgets + shortcuts. I also get 3-4 FCs a day with Helix, and I'm not exactly overloaded on apps.
I don't think Root + OC are required, but they certainly help with Helix.
Repeating what dmartins said above
If you have *stock home* and *helix* and *home++*
And you have them all full of widgets
Even though you're only using helix the other home widgets are slowing you down and causing lag
App icons don't matter as much but widgets are killers
Try stripping your other homes clean and go easy on the widgets...
half dozen should run smooth.... sounds like you have another conflict causing your force closes... helix is a good home... one of , if not , the best...
I have absolutely nothing on the stock home (no widgets, no shortcuts, nothing). I took Home++ off as well.
Admittedly Helix is pretty snappy when it is 100% clean, but I really don't have much on there. BW, 4 of the BW toggles, pure calendar and pure SMS, and a RSS feed.
I've heard BW can be the culprit, but it's just too pretty to leave off.
