    So, just got my Motion in the mail....activated it and found that it is already at 1.5 stock :)

    but browsing around the settings i have found a few things you all may interested in...

    Turning off Mobile Data:

    Menu > System Settings > Data Usage > Mobile Data

    Limiting Background Apps

    This is a feature built in to ICS

    Menu > System Settings > Developer Options > scroll down to Background process limit

    set it to whatever you please...but be warned you may mess things up...and don't blame me

    Easy way of figuring out what can be uninstalled

    Click the gear icon in the upper right corner when in the app drawer...apps that can be uninstalled will have a red circle with an X on the top right of the icon

    you can edit the quick toggle bar in the notification pull down screen

    scroll it all the way to the right and click "edit"

    setup face unlock

    Menu > Lockscreen Options

    Turn off capacitative buttons backlight

    this will increase your battery life...and it's already in a setting

    Menu > System Settings > Display > Font Key Light and click the box :)

    i'm sure i'll find more and i will update this as i find more...

    Enjoy your Motion! Support the Developers and Sign the petition to get the bootloader unlocked!

    On the home screen I placed an additional app down with the 4 existing quick keys (phone, contacts, messaging, apps) and now I can't figure out how to get it out of there.

    I would like to find out how :)

    click and hold until you get a little vibration and then you can drag it out of the dock

    I thought that would be it too but doesn't work, no vibration and not letting me move it.

    It's the calendar if that makes a difference.

    well...i tried about 4 different apps right now...and they all were able to dock and and hold...don't move your finger at all...if that doesn't work i don't know what a different launcher...Nova and Apex are both decent

    Can you move out the stock quick key apps as well, or only the ones that you added to the original four. Thanks.

    Crazy, I don't the meantime I've managed to add a sixth app to the quick keys that's also now stuck lol.

    Thanks for letting me know how it should be working.

    Powered off and restarted and now I'm good to go.

    How many times is that sh*t the answer lol.

    Thanks much for letting me know what I should be looking for.

    Rebooting fixes more than you know :p

    Rebooting is a powerful tool - from windows to routers and even my toaster oven - now if I could only remember to go that route early I'd be way ahead :)

    If you hold down (long press) an app you don't want at the bottom, you drag it UP, rather than down, and a trash can symbol will appear. Drag it there.

    Yeah, very few peripherals....even when new/few apps installed/with scads of memory/storage...
    ...don't run into problems by using up all available resources.
    A nice script to reboot ones phone daily, say after hours, Would be real helpful for that n any frozen process, etc.
    (Fuzzy get working on this :p )

    write your own script for's rather easy...or you could use ROM Toolbox to do the Script Manager section..

    A LOT!
    Although it's only been a few hours...& I've recently cleaned house re app hoarding, I've gone from 400+ to way less than 100.
    Let's see how everything holds up over time...and when out of resources arrives
