    Tried to search but couldnt find anything on this.

    Here is what is happening with my Droid. I have the official release on my Droid and when I leave and app (Like Dolphin or Handcent) my icons on my home screens take 5-10 secs to refresh and it can take another 5 seconds before my home screen will react to any touches.

    Also when I unlock my phone it can take close to 20 secs sometimes (not all the time) for my icons to come in and it takes at least 5 secs no matter what to get my screen to react to any touches.


    Is anyone else having this issue? What can I do? Now I almost wish I had never updgraded to 2.2.....

    Same issue. In fact, it takes me 2-3 swipes to actually move to the next homescreen, after all icons lagged in... hope it gets fixed soon.

    in you.
    I had the same issue. I did a factory reset and now it works fine.

    You two should do factory reset too.

    What gets erased in a factory reset? How much work do you have to do to return to where you were before? Just apps, or more?

    This lag is KILLING ME! :mad: I just want to put a bullet through my processor... How can this be happening to an overclocked droid... Does anybody else feel that their overclocked droid is slower than a droid X or droid 2? And what is the ROM that gives me the best snapiness and speed. Sorry for the rant :D

    Gonna try *228 and see if it trying to find signal is causing it.

    Will let you know.

    Roaming capablilites have zero to do with the home screen lag. Its the update that did it, its happening to quite a few people after the update. Me included.

    Is there some kind of cleanup I can do other than a full reset?

    I really dont want to have to reset it just to get it to run like it used to :(

    I had the home screen lag issue after the 2.2 update on my droid. I did a soft reset (instructions: How to Unfreeze a Motorola Droid | eHow.com) and it seems to have helped some. Do you guys think a hard reset would be necessary to completely resolve the issue? I don't want to have to go through all that if I don't have to. Thanks.

    I did a factory reset a week or so ago and it did not help. It seemed to fix it for a day or so, then it was as bad as ever.

    The warm reset, Cntrl-alt-del) on the keyboard fixed the problem for me. I didn't have to do a factory reset!

    before you report it is "fixed" report back after a few days or a week just to be safe. many people thought turning off animation would work, and it did, for about a day, then back to the same.

    Lock-N-Load speaks the truth. I had most of the problems listed above and tried all of the fixes listed above except the soft re-set. Worked for a while but then they slowly crept back into my life and I finally did a factory re-set only to brick my phone sorta. It would not recognize the network no matter how many times I did *228 to program it. The result was always the same and finally I had to have a store flash the phone back to life. Everything seems fine now but time will tell since I think I just saw a slight lag going back to the home screen but it just could be me being paranoid about it.
