    Hi everyone. My Ally seems to be giving me a little trouble when trying to return to the home screen. No matter what app I am working in, whenever I either "back out" (using the back button) or by pressing the Home button, what happens is I see my wallpaper/background but it takes a good 10 seconds before any of my shortcuts/widgets appear.
    I am currently on 2.2 but it was also happening when I was on 2.1 as well. Which leads me to believe that it is a bad app but I don;t know how to figure out which one. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

    do you have a lot of stuff on your home screens? it seems to me like the more icons and widgets i put, the slower the home screen loads when returning from an app.

    How much free internal memory do you have? A larger faster SD Card may help to.

    I have the same issue. I get rid of a lot of widgets and shortcuts, and froze a lot of background(bloat) apps. It seems to help, but I still have this issue.

    Yes, I have a lot of icons/shortcuts on the home screen. I have the original 4GB SD card that came with the phone. So weird that it just started happening all of a sudden one day. Nothing really changed. I will try to remove some shortcuts and see if that helps.

    That happens to me using launcher pro.
    Also adw ex takes about 6 seconds to populate the screen.
    on 2.1 launcher pro and adw were faster than either stock launchers.
    Now with 2.2.1 the stock launchers are faster than the above mentioned launchers....
    Even though I paid for both they are uninstalled because waiting 4-8 seconds for the screen to populate is a fail for me.

    In my own experience (using adw launcher ex) it only happened when the phone killed or shut off the laucher. But i did have to wait for everything to load up. I have "system persistant" enable so it wont be shut down and its always there when i hit home its never caused issue with me but i could see it eating memory if you need it elsewhere. Just a thought.
