    Running perfectly. Very fast, responsive and smooth. I would suggest, however, to make the stock "Home" app your default desktop app the first time you boot up the new 2.1 update. Then you can test your theme in SH to make sure that it's all good.

    2.1 has the Live Wallpapers (which seems very smooth, btw), but SH does NOT support them yet.

    Joe:

    Is the ese81 as fast as DM 1.0 running at 800 mhz? As far as SH2 goes?

    Home ++ does work, and is actually running perfectly after a reinstall.

    However, it does not support live wallpapers yet. ( which is ok imho, because while the live wallpapers are awesome, they run like shiza on this phone )

    Maybe that will be an option when the BETA version expires in April (the 10th I believe)...

    I love sweeter home, but after a few weeks my Droid just goes haywire.

    I was running DM 1.0 at 800 to 1.2K, and yes, SH is running smoother. In fact, the last 2 or 3 Builds of SH, I was getting random FCs and just kinda glitchy weird behavior. It's been about 5 hours so far, and I haven't seen so much as a single hiccup yet out of SH. Time will tell.

    So does 2.1 get rid of the lag with the screen transitions? I sometimes get it running Cyanogen OC'd to 1100...

    No lag sliding from screen to screen. Takes less than a second to return to my homescreen coming out of an app using the Home soft button.

    Then again, I'm one of the few that has never really experience a lot of lag like some have reported.

    Yea I seem to get the lag after the phone has been running for a while... I usually just force kill SweeterHome and the lag goes away (the lag comes back after a while though)... A little annoying but SH is worth it... :p
