    Rooted Droid 1.

    1) ACTUAL FIX for the ****ing Homescreen Redraw bull****.

    2) Why cant I overclock it to 1ghz? Im running SetCPU it only allows me to use bull**** presets up to 800mhz which is weak as hell.

    3) The supposed redraw fix for launcher/ADW doesnt do anything I just get a message saying couldn't /data/home.prop denied.

    4) I want gingerbread.

    If someone could direct me as to how to solve any of these problems I would be eternally grateful. Im just really sick of this phone and want to ease my pain with it till I can upgrade to the Droid Bionic.

    Dude. Not sure the Bionic is gonna help. None of this stuff is automatic...

    1. Are you even using ADW? If not, you don't need to edit local.prop. If so, lose it. More trouble than it's worth, IMHO.

    2. Flash a kernel that goes to 1 GHz if you want to OC that high.

    3. See #1.

    Try flashing ud 2.5 ROM and check the keep home in memory box under ud special settings menu. I am using ADW EX and have not had any redraw issues. I flash other roms and the issue always pops up again so I go back to ud, not sure if any other rom has this option.

    You need to have a kernel that will support 1 gig plus. Check around for some chevy kernels. You don't wanna run gingerbread yet. It is still a work in progress and you will get extremely exasperated. I suggest launcher pro. It's available on the marketplace.
