    Hi everybody, I just bought my Droid about a week or so ago and I absolutely love it I've been doing a lot of reading on the fourum and everyone seems extremley helpful.

    In the short time i've had the phone i've already rooted, installed spr, made a nandroid backup, overclocked (only to 600, worried about heat related issues), unrooted back to stock and then installed launcher 2. I absolutely love the full customization of the android system!

    Now i think i'm planning on waiting to root again until the 2.1 update comes out...whenever that is going to be.

    My questions are:

    1.It seems ever since I installed Launcher 2 it seems like my phone has slowed down. Is that normal beacuse of the 5 screens and 3d app drawer and if so is there anything I can do to offset the situation?

    2.Also what .apk/apps would everyone recomend?

    3. When I do root again should i be worried about overclocking to say 1Ghz? I just bought a seido innocase for it and don't want to do heat related damage to the phone.

    4. Just wonderring if anyone knows if once u put on a full body invisible skin on does the seido innocase still fit perfectly and is that too many layers for overclocking?

    Thanks so much

    1. There's an app in the market (helix launcher) that's basically launcher 2 just without the 3d app drawer and allows up to 7 screens.

    2. Handcent, shazam, helix launcher, dolphin browsers, and others.

    3. I wouldn't worry about it, just make sure your sleep/standby (screen is off) profile is low so that it doesn't run at 1ghz when it doesn't need to be, but honestly I run at 800 and don't notice a difference between 1000 and 800

    +1 for 800 anything higher then that you will really not see the differnce and is just un-needed strain

    Helix, Handcent, Beautiful Widgets, google buzz widget is about all i keep reinstalling

    EDIT: look at the apps in my sig Gestures is the hands down best app for android imo lol
