    I've been using Home++ for a few days now and I started seeing the force close today. I've seen it 3-4 times today. I just click "wait" and it goes away.

    And forgive me for being a newbie here, but what does it mean to "root" the Droid?

    I've been using home++ on a rooted Droid, both 2.0.1 and 2.1, for a couple weeks now with zero issues.

    For those with issues, try not opening the app drawer AT ALL. put all your shortcuts on your home screens (or use folders/appsorganizer to organize your apps).

    app drawer seems to be the culprit for 90% of force closes for me

    I have been using Home++ pre- and post-root, with minimal issues. When you get the fc error, just click OK (whatever it says, the opposite of WAIT), screen will flash, and you will continue on your merry way. I'm never giving up Home++, the bottom bar is just so convenient.
