    I've been having this really frustrating issue with my droid. Ever since I installed Panda Home, when I power my phone off then restart it, my phone totally wigs out. My gmail or other email accounts wont sync, i cannot call out or recieve calls and after about 2 minutes, my whole phone locks up and has to be shut back off.

    Last night I ran my battery down to the point that the phone powered off. I just put plugged it in and went to bed. This morning, locked phone. I have power cycled it countless times, removed the battery several times, nothing. It just keeps getting stuck at the same point and not syncing with anything. I just switched my home back to the stock android home and everything works fine. What gives?

    I really like Panda home but can it really be this buggy?

    I used Pandahome as my home replacement until the latest round of updates (last couple weeks). Had too many problems with it then.

    Recently, (like 2 days ago) I tried home++. It doesn't have the side docks that I liked with Pandahome, but it does have up to 7 screens and is very stable.

    Might want to take a look at home++

    The dock bars are one of my favorite features. I love everything about panda, except the buggs. I guess I can just keep waiting for 2.1 update and 5 factory screens.

    On a side note, when using my droid with the factory home reinstalled, it is much faster than panda.

    I also used Panda for a long time, and abandoned it last week. It just got too laggy, and sucked up too much battery. Turns out the stock launcher does pretty nearly everything I want, and significantly speeds up the driod, although an extra screen or two would be nice, and the side drawers were good. 2.1 can't come soon enough.
