Default "Loading" Message on Home Screen

Hi All,

New user, new to the Android world here with an HTC One X (AT&T).

I've noticed, mostly today, that sometimes when I go to my home screen from an app (just tap the home button) I get a "loading" message, and it takes ~5 seconds or so before the home screen shows up, almost as if the phone is rebooting or something (it isn't, as the task switcher still shows all of my apps as running).

Any thoughts on what could cause this? Is it normal? Could it be a widget thing? I would think if it were widgets it would happen every time. Home screen just has the HTC clock / weather widget, and then a calendar widget from "Jorte".

Thanks all.

Yeah, this isn't normal at all. It's happened to me a bunch of times, and gets annoying as hell.

Same here I love the display of this phone and have money invested in android apps and music etc but I am a bit frustrated. I had the skyrocket and worked smooth with exception of I had months and months of texting issues. I switched to a Lumia 900 and paid restocking fee to go to HOX. Problems with Lumia to me were display not the greatest, text did not wrap it drove my crazy, poor camera, and missing some of my favorite apps. I did love the people hub and the voice to text features were outstanding on that phone. I actually liked the operating system because it was clean but not as boring as IOS. The Lumia had no lag and Internet connected great and all texting went well. My complaints on HOX are problems with MMS, in and out connection whether it be wifi or using data and yesterday it was apparent I had my first missing text message (which I am thinking is an android thing). Yes no phone is perfect I know but wondering which is the lesser of evils at this point. Am thinking of staying put and hoping that htc comes through. I had the vivid for a month with issues when it first was introduced and used one about a month ago and ran very smooth. So maybe HTC will hopefully do like they did with that phone and get this flagship updated and working better soon!

The loading message is due to the fact that Sense has crashed or ran out of memory. To see this rarely is not unusual, but frequently and it is a problem. I expereniced this on my One X and the solution is a hard reset which will wipe your data and then restore. It will positively fix this which it should not be doing.

THIS IS THE FIX: SETTINGS ---> DEVELOPER OPTIONS ---> UNCHECK DONT KEEP ACTIVITIES ---> BACKGROUND PROCESS LIMIT , CHANGE TO 2 TO 4 PROCESSES.

THIS WILL FIX THE PROBLEM , I TESTED IT ON MULTIPLE DEVICES.....

That is an interesting approach. What have been the ramifications of this change in daily operation of the One X (apart from no longer seeing the "loading" message).

Sadly, this doesn't work for my wife's One X - Sense even crashed when I exited the settings page!

Does anyone have any solutions (bar factory reset - I really don't have the time to re-install everything from scratch for her)?

It's weird, it's only recently started doing this. She's been on the 1.29.XXX.11 build (O2-branded) for a little while now without a problem until the last week or so. It mainly happens when exiting the Internet browser, but it has been from other apps as well.

Is there any way I can check to see what's using up the memory?

Rather than a full factory reset, you could clear the cache and data associated with Sense? You'd lose app placements on homescreens etc, but it's worth a go?

I've tried clearing the Sense cache already, but not the data. Will give it a go tonight when I'm home from work and the kids are in bed!

Noticed this on XDA, thought it might be useful for this thread:

Home screen loading - xda-developers

"Developer options, don't keep activities.
Tick it, back out, go back, untick it. Job done."

I'm not using stock ROM anymore, but I've heard the newer software updates from AT&T / HTC make this problem much better. Back in 1.73 days it was unbearable.
