    I've been running PandaHome since November 16th and have not had one problem up until this morning. I have not made any changes to the device in regards to apps or widgets. I have not had one force close or hiccup. My device ran perfectly.

    This morning I got up and noticed my device said the battery was almost dead. Which was strange because I fully charged it before going to bed (I do not turn device off and everymorning I only see a slight drop in battery). Checked the battery use and nothing out of the ordinary was draining it. Plugged it in and it charged to full in 10 minutes. Which was odd obviously.

    Figured since I haven't rebooted in weeks that I would. Thats when the problems started. On a fresh boot Panda was Force closing constantly and I couldn't get the device to respond. After 3 reboots and many FC's I booted into safe mode and deleted PandaHome.

    Device is back to normal.

    I was just reading in a couple of other threads that people using different home replacements suddenly having force close issues and/or extreme lagginess .

    Anybody else experiencing this today or within the past couple days?

    It's just very strange because I have not had one problem and did not update anything and was suddenly hit with FC's literally overnight.

    I'll just mention that I'm using PandaHome, and haven't noticed any issues (so far... crosses fingers).

    I've had home++ FC maybe 2-3 times on 2 separate days this week. But I have just installed Camera Zoom FX and BW so that could be why, not that big of a deal to me because it's a work in progress.

    I uninstalled Home++ a few days ago because it was giving me FCs but not to the point that your Panda was. I would get maybe 3-4 a day when leaving apps or unlocking but not constant FCs that required safemode or anything.

    Home++ started to FC a lot on me, so I went to the 2.0.1 rom with 2.1 apps. I've been using the new launcher and it runs fine. So I guess no more Home++ for me. Too bad, I like it.

    No problems here with GDE. I have never gotten a FC with it.

    i have had Panda for several weeks now, and have never had a FC. sometimes can be laggy for 2-5 seconds, but overall a great home replacement.

    dont know what i will do though when 2.1 hits

    I had been running Panda for a few weeks and on Tuesday my phone was locking up. I unistalled Panda and it was fine. I then installed Home++ and so far, so good. I was worried when Home++ had the update this week but it did not effect the phone.

    Just updated home++ to .14, he rolled back because apparently .15 was a failed attempt. Possibly fix the FC problems?

    Panda Home runs great on my Droid.

    No issues! Not even any FC's.

    Got the Panda home update last night, and after restarting my phone, it seemed to lock up...

    But, and this may be a key issue, I also had mylock installed and it sorta took over when I unlocked the screen. I was able to get to a task manager and kill panda home, but each time it restarted it was still locked, no widgets or icons and wouldn't let me switch screens or open the app drawer. Luckily the task manager I use let me switch to settings and then make the normal home screen the default. Uninstalled mylock and rebooted the phone, and it came back up working perfect again with Panda reset as the default home app. So, not sure if it was a weird Panda issue or one with MyLock.

    I have Open Home and for the last week, I have been getting a lot of fc's and freeze ups. I have had to reboot and do a few battery pulls to clear it up. I was thinking of uninstalling to see if that would clear the problem but I really dont like the stock home app. Might have to do it to report my results to this thread.

    Uninstalled PandaHome today at lunch. Was working fine until now, constant FCs, locked black screen, running extremely slow, and wouldn't let me connect to the net. I even had to take the battery out to get my phone to restart at one point.
