    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.

    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.

    how will a signal cause Home Screen lag?

    Not being a smart ass...I'm seriously curious.

    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.
