    Pantheon is your Home App. Ie what controls your interface your icons etc. A bit like Desktop on a PC.

    You can change it. Try HelixLauncher v.1.2b or Launcher Pro. Check Marketplace.

    I have put launcher pro on now so will see how it goes, I am new to all this modding, I only got my Galaxy two days ago, it was running 1.5 i didn't realise that when I put version xxJE1 on that i would be stuck with it, I wish now that I could go back to 1.5... Is there anyway to delete pantheon? Thank for your help...:confused:

    Stick with 2.1. You don't need to delete Pantheon, once you use an alternative it's not used.

    What's your issues with 2.1?

    JE1 does not include APN settings, and I had issues with it. Hence I used JD4.

    To fix your problems all you need to do is insert the APN settings.

    Settings

    Access Point Names
    Your Provider

    Here's T-Mobile UK settings

    It seems quite sluggish and the battery seems to go down really quickly, on 1.5 I spent a whole day playing with it using wifi and just using it almost all day and the battery hardly moved, in your opinion which is the best firmware for good battery life and a smooth responsive phone..

    So do you think it would be good to use JD4, do you have one that is stable or should I use the one from the forum, thanks again for helping me..

    JE4 is now out, so you have more choice. But I'm now of the mind, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I'll install a new firmware if 2.2 is made available. Until then, I'm using a hybrid JD4 with JIT and updated OpelGL drivers. My phone flies. But I have to manage incompatibilites.

    OK I will see how the battery lasts over the next few days I just hope it lasts for more than a day, just one more thing now that I have done the upgrade to 2.1 does that mean now that I have void my warrenty to return the phone to t-mobile (UK) if anything should go wrong? ...

    I think Pantheon sucks the juice out of the Galaxy. I am running 2.1 on mine, but mine came ready shipped with it from 3, and in my opinion, the Galaxy seems to be more efficient than other android handsets. My girlfriends TM Pulse drops power like a brick dropped from 20 stories up, so I figure you have something installed that is doing the battery drain.

    Change the Home app to something lighter like ADW_Launcher. Also turn off any services you don't need, when you don't need them, like GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, install a good task killer, and set it up to autokill. Some seemingly innocuous apps just murder the battery, for instance, I normally get to the end of a whole day with around 80% battery left, with GPS always on, and I use the camera a lot, but if I leave instant messaging apps on in the background, and it can be 30% left or less by end of the day.

    Thanks for the replies they are very helpful, I have now noticed that I can't turn 3g off at all, I have ticked the box "use 2g only" but nothing it is still using 3g any ideas as what to do? Sprocketdog which is a good task killer as I am very new to this and don't really understand a great deal, I have checked my battery usage and it says Android 95%,cell standby 4% and phone idle 4% how come android is so high? I am running the XXJE4 firmware, thanks again..

    I tried the ADW.Launcher tonight after reading sporcketdog's post. This is a great app. It adds more screens to the Galaxy Portal and does it in a really clever way (press the home buton x2 to see what I mean). Thanks for the suggestions

    A nice alternative HOME (Pantheon) replacement. However, I found ADW.Launcher very slow, it didn't seem to have a customisable dock.

    I still stand by HelixLauncher (v1) It supports up to 7 screens too, sorts Apps alphabetically, and is definitely much faster.

    And it supports a customisable dock.

    Remember, home replacements are a Personal choice.

    Beerkan, re: home replacements, i have open home (latest version) so I can use nice skins. I get a 'home chooser' on the open home menu and i can revert back to Pantheon, is this purely just for the looks? I ask because if i go into battery I still get Pantheon 3% (while charging)

    Can i still run open home with HelixLauncher?

    Yes, you can have multiple Home apps. If that's what you want. I removed Pantheon and all it's support files, freed up about 4 MB of internal memory. You need a rooted phone to remove Pantheon and it's support files.

    my battery was doing the same thing! i deleted recent games i had downloaded and acrobat reader and it works a treat now. dont delete pantheon there is no need. just experiment with your apps cos it will prob be one of them. you can always reinstall later!
    if you look closer at your battery use it will say pantheon using it all, but your phone is smart and it will only say a few seconds of use, minutes at the most! your phone switches it off when not in use. go to battery use in your phone click on pantheon and you will see what i mean! the games wont show up here at all even tho they are still draining your battery when your not even playing them! hope this helps x
