    Hi All-
    I downloaded atk a couple days ago and everything worked great! Last night my phone died. When I charged it and turned it back on this morning I went into task killer to clear out all the apps that turn on automatically and then I hit home. Whenever I did this before, it took me back to the home page, no problem. Now I get a black page with HTC on it and then it resets the home page and I lose my weather. Eventually, it comes back, but why all the sudden am I getting the black HTC screen???

    HELP!!:thinking:

    Yeah, it sounds like you are killing Sense. Don't kill Sense, and you should be alright.

    Do you try to ignore 'Email' (if it is integrated with Home). If you kill it, the bundled Home is killed at the same time. So your phone have to reload Home again.

    Yeah if its restarting back at the HTC screen then Sense UI is being killed when you kill all task. Go into your ignore settings and add sense, weather, clock, and whatever else you want to keep running. also try uninstalling atk for a week. I'm sure you'll find that android does a better job of resource management than you or atk! :D

    Ummm guys, this thread is from November. The problem has either been solved or the user returned the phone by now.

    Thanks OfTheDamned! It was fixed, but unfortunately Verizon has determined that my phone is a lemon since every other day it won''t connect to google and they are sending me a new phone that should be here today!

    Also, I definitely do not use ATK anymore and I get better battery life without it!
