    Seems like after that last ota update...whenever I go to my home screen the icons take forever to show up...well about 4seconds...but that way to long....can this be fixed?

    I have the same problem. I have a droid 1 not rooted. It's driving me crazy Seems to only happen Coming of the car dock Or coming of web sites that have a lot of information.

    Do either of you have a task killer or launcher installed? If so, remove and see if that rectifies the slowness.

    I am running 2.2 and am on version frg22d. I have no task killer and no launcher but stock. Wondering if rooting and overclocking is the only fix?

    If you don't want to overclock, it's an easy fix once you're rooted.

    Your phone doesn't work or something runs slower than you expected?
