    Okay, I'm running the Lite official 2.2 ROM. I'm seeing a lot more BS running in the background than I used to on 2.1 (using System Panel Lite). Another thing I noticed is that no matter how I try to exit an app, none of them go inactive. They are all still listed as active. I'm not hitting "home" to back out, I'm actually hitting the back button.

    I didn't used to see this behavior on 2.1-1. If I backed out of an app (gmail, quadrant, youtube, etc) they went to "inactive". Now all are listed as active. I've had a ton of little quirks with this ROM but I've been working through it. It's almost totally up to what I want except the issues of stuff running I don't start ("Mail", BUA, etc) and stuff not going inactive when not in use. I don't use any ATKs or anything, since I know better. But I don't want to have to constantly kill un-needed apps in System Panel because they're not going inactive like they used to.

    So, for the time being, I want to go back to 2.1-1. Really not happy with this ROM. At least I can run nandroid and get my phone back to how it was if I downgrade.

    Doesn't change that the apps I do want to use for some reason don't go inactive when I back out of them. That's not cool to me.

    I decided to move over to Skyraider 3.0RC2. We'll see how it treats me.

    I like it so far. Doing a lot better than the official OTA ROM. Looking forward to trying something baked by Adrynalyne or eventually a CM6 variant.
