    Hello,

    I am new to android and the i9000. (but i managed to upgrade it to android V2.2, root the device and got rid off the lag (lag fix). Benchmark test shot up from 790 to 1890!!!

    However! Every now and then (as specialy at the end of the day) I have got a problem with the "thingy" (notification bar) that slides down and shows if the wifi/bluetooth/sync/ is on or off (it also shows app's that are being downloaded/installed from android market, etc..)

    It doesn't slide down (completely) anymore. After a reboot everything is ok for a while...


    ??? help



    some data:

    Kernel: 2.6.32.9 ROOT@SE-S608 #1
    Build: FROYO-XWJPA
    MODEL: GT-I9000

    I have the same problem - surely other people are experiencing this also?

    Hello,

    I think i "had" this problem because my phone was syncing to much at the same time (2 mail-accounts/Rss-feeds/android-app-updates/weather updates/etc..)

    I haven't got the problem anymore (i hope)

    I'm having the same problem right now. Sometimes it's a little hard to pull up or down, but today the bar seems bent on remaining up there or showing just a little bit.

    Will try deleting some apps that need updating and see how it goes.

    Strange, but this morning the problem is gone after I switched off the phone for the night (even though I'd restarted it a few days yesterday). I think it's because I disabled background sync. Will monitor and report if the bar misbehaves again.

    I also have had this problem 2 or 3 times. I have no idea what causes this. if i uses normal speed when pulling it down, it stops about where u see that gray grabber thing and maybe 2 pixels down. If i try to pull it down superfast, i can if lucky get it halfway down. Also, when i pull the notf.bar it freezes, meaning, i cant pull it up or click it, i have to press home-key to make my phone work.

    Althougt a restart fixes this, i always wonder why it sometime crashes

    I'm having this problem. The notification bar is stuck at top and I'm unable to bring it down and view all the notifications. However, I can see the notifications via Menu->Notifications.

    Didnt wanna open a new thread since there was one existing on the same topic without a possible solution.

    hopefully the next update should fix this.

    Am facing the same problem as well.

    After I removed LauncherPro, the slider works fine. I rem that launcherpro has a function to set how you wan to display the notification. Not sure if its the cause of it. You may wan to try...

    I've not had this problem since flashing custom roms (using Doc's kitchen rom right now). But you'll need to root your phone first. I did it using z4root; it's a one step process that's been problem-free for me. Before rooting and flashing a rom, you need to check whether you have the button recovery mode, read up extensively and ask questions if need be. Doc's rom is great for support as there are kind volunters who man the chat line.

    I have no idea why, but this is coming from Skype!

    What i did:
    I had same problem with the status (notification) bar, and couldn't fix it.
    I made a factory reset and the effect was gone.
    I installed Skype again and after some time with no problems I touched the slider for something - immediately I got the bad behavior again.

    I do not want to do factory reset again, but it seems I'll have to. :(
    Anyone else noticed this, or am I nuts?

    Happens occasionally.
    fix with restart - so far so good.
    Many little bugs starting to surface actually. Time to step up from 2.2..
