    Finally rooted my droid og after my verizon contract ran out (going w/ t-mobile's $30/mo plan using my gf's old Cliq).

    Really looking forward to trying out SD10!

    Not rushing you by any means good sir. Take your time, I have no doubts that I will be blown away and it will be well worth the wait whether it's 2 weeks or 2 months. Butttt 2 weeks sounds really good :biggrin:

    I want it out soon. Its driving me crazy. Lol. Always something more I want to change. Once the reboot issue is fixed, its golden for the OG, others just need to boot now...

    I know this is extremely late to ask but, is there a way that you can make an option to keep Nemus from running in the background? Nemus is always running a "keep from closing" program that uses about 20mb. I'm assuming it's locking the launcher in memory which I don't want or need. I've gone back to using the stock GB launcher from the market because of its speed and low resource usage. Nemus and GO launcher lag.

    Thanks BTW! SD9 and the anticipation for SD10 are keeping me hanging on with the D1.

    I'm working on some new memory tweaks that should help with lag and other issues.

    Give Zeam Launcher a run. It's in the market (free) and I think you'll be impressed by the simplicity and small footprint.

    I tried Zeam. My problem with it was it very laggy scrolling on the homescreen, and I only use 3 homescreens. Basically I would scroll left/right, it would scroll 50%, hang/freeze, then scroll the remaining 50%. it wasn't a consistent choppiness.

    That happens to me with launcherpro, which is the only launcher I use, except when starting fresh I'll use the stock one before I restore all my apps. I find that its more my phone acting up than the actual launcher. Like I can tell right now my phone isn't running top notch by the couple second hang that'll happen when typing randomly, and just system lag in general. I guarantee I could install any launcher available and they'd all work subpar. I'm lookin forward to SD10 so I can sbf back to stock and start fresh again, and try and figure out where it goes wrong at.

    Its tough to narrow it down. I can't tell if its restoring apps that cause the slowdown, or the swap partition, or my current kernel setup or what it is, I Just know its not at the peak of its game. Sometimes when scrolling a webpage and tap an empty field to input data, sometimes the keyboard won't have enough memory or somethin to load up, I'll have to tap outside the box then in it again to get the keyboard to pop up. Just little things like that that make it evident that something is holding it back. Here's to praying SD10 is the ultimate setup for any OG in existence...ayy!!

    That's weird, my phone runs smooth with go launcher, even with the effects on. Rarely stutters and when it does its not too noticeable.
