    running 5.0.6.2 jrummy stock theme.

    i never had this problem before so im prettymuch hoping its something i screwed up myself, and will be fixed upon a /data wipe.

    i partitioned my sdcard to run apps2sd.
    wiped /data and /cache
    restored all my sdcard stuff from my comp
    then installed 5.0.6.2 jrummy stock
    enabled apps2d
    restored everything via titanium backup
    i also 'froze' alot of unused /system apps like google talk/voice etc.

    now when i press home, it takes me to my middle homescreen which consists of beautiful home widget (the old one before the cease and desist) calwidget and the astrid widget. i do realize this screen uses up alot of memory cuz of the widgets, but i didn't have a problem before.

    anyways, whenever i get to the home screen, i try to go to the left or right screen and my swipe basically doesn't register. it'll take about 1-2 seconds of constant swiping and then it'll register and itl'l take me to the very left screen or the last screen on the right.

    I believe that it is HelixLauncher2.

    You may want to post this in the jrummy section, however.

    Two things:

    Disable Live Wallpapers and see if the problem still persists.

    Enable "Launcher in memory" option in spare parts.

    Does "launcher in memory" apply to the Helix launchers?

    you have to do a softmod to it.

    $su
    #mount -o remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    #mv /system/app/Launcher2.apk /system/app/Launcher2.apk.bak
    #mv /system/app/HelixLauncher2.apk /system/app/Launcher2.apk
    #sync
    #reboot

    then set the launcher in memory.

    I have noticed with this Rom that there is time that when you press the home screen it takes a second or two for it to load and it completely wipes out the screen then reloads the icons? What is the cause for this does anyone know. I am running cyan 5.0.6.2 with jrummys blue theme?

    It is the launcher you are using, I can for the most part guarantee, that if you use the native home launcher, this will not happen.

    Sorry, but as of right now, I don't think that beast exists.

    seems like it backs up launcher2
    then renames helixlauncher2 as launcher2

    tried this softmod and enabled launcher memory,
    still getting the same lag.
    =\

    I renamed Helix to Launcher.apk and enabled launcher memory - not sure if it makes a tremendous difference, but I do think it helps.

    Note: Helix might not be in /system/app, obviously if you have apps2sd active it will be on your sdcard, if you move it, it moves to /data/app

    Oh dear, well that's not good. and yes, I wrote the terminal command up after I found a root explorer tutorial somewhere else (maybe here, I don't remember?) It tricks spare parts into thinking that helix is the cyanogen launcher.

    There's not much you can do other than this, except run less widgets or up your kernel.

    I'm using the stock 5 drawer 3d launcher with 5.0.6.2 and hexfusion theme. When I slide the keyboard open the icons are there but it takes like 5-10 seconds for them to actually be working. I mean I press them but nothing happens so they might as well not be there. Yes I have launcher in memory and no I am not running live wallpaper, any ideas?

    I think that this is just an optimization error in Cyanogen.

    They'll be working on it, as developers always move towards the perfect version of every ROM. but there is one thing that may help. Enter the terminal, hit menu, reset term, and then type in reboot and hit enter. not su then reboot, just reboot. It usually snaps things up a little.

    well, at least i've confirmed its a problem with lag on helixlauncher2, not cyanogenmod itself.

    when i use the old home launcher, there's no velocity scrolling, but there is also no lag that i experience when using helix2.

    its a trade off i guess, but i'll have to live with the lag for now, because im too used to having the dock on the bottom.

    I actually found lag with the stock homes in both cyanogen and jrummy so I ended up just using helix 1 which doesn't have these problems for me. I do hope they fix it in the future though.
