    I'm new to Motorola phones and the Android OS. Picked up the X and I love it. One thing I'd like to know though...

    Under the general settings tab in preferences...there's an option to enable a "motorola droid hack". I'm curious as to what this does. Can anyone shed some light?

    Android OS settings. I'm using LauncherPro if that helps. From my homescreen i hit the menu key, then "preferences" instead of "settings". Then "general settings".

    Edit: I believe its something that LauncherPro adds to the menu options.

    Ummm is this the Droid X or the Droid? You keep referring to each name back and forth.

    Droid X. I referenced it in the first post but should have been more clear.

    It is something that LauncherPro adds. You are looking at the preferences for LauncherPro.:p

    Just states it may improve performance on the droid/milestone phones. Probably making launcher pro work smoother.

    I figured as much. Still cant find any info on what the "hack" entails. Looking on the launcher pro forums as well.

    The developer of LP added that option in there, but he never really clarified what it actually did. It's probably just some source he put in there that relates to the droid. I keep mine unchecked, but you may try both to see if you get better mileage with it on or off.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it is a memory hack for Droid. If you have a regular Droid, checking this option forces LauncherPro to stay in the memory
