    Hey! I have the original droid and recently I have been getting very frustrated with my phone because when I finish playing a game, sending a text message, or pretty much anything; and I then press the back button, or the home button it takes a while for my icons to come back up. Sometimes its like 10 seconds other times is about 1-2 minutes! this then prevents me from making a phone call when i really need to. Also, when returning to the homescreen and pressing the application drawer all my apps take a very long time to load as well, sometimes 3 minutes or so. My phone is not rooted, and i am using the stock homescreen. Any suggestions??

    Thanks

    With a stock, unrooted Droid, that link is not going to do you any good at all. Not sure there's an easy solution for you. Have you tried regular reboots?

    Another option is to try ADW Launcher or LauncherPro from the market.

    Hitting the home button isn't the best idea as it tells Andy (that's the android's name, by the way) that you want to come back to that app. Backing out is a much better option. Regular reboots help as well. If you're running a lot of widgets, kill them as they take up RAM and CPU cycles even when the screen's off.

    I am having the same problem with my Droid running very slow and the app icon taking forever to appear on my screen. I was thinking about restoring the phone back to factory setting but I don't want it to delete my pics and stuff from my SD card.

    A factory reset does not affect the SD card at all.

    If youre unrooted, Install ADW.Launcher and check System Persistance in the ADW Settings. Fixed my redraw before I rooted. And I had it bad..

    Yup. It's like opening the box new (unless you're ROM'd, which you aren't), only with that small scratch on the screen you hardly notice anymore, that dent from when it fell down the stairs, and the lingering smell of perfume from when it spent a week in your mom's purse and you couldn't find it.

    The data on the SD card is unaffected, but you might want to back it up all the same.
