    So, in the past, with 2.1 or 2.2 when I would rename the blurhome.apk to .bak the phone would then run extremely slow and shutter a lot, basically running like crap, with consistently low quadrant scores (800s).

    Since installing the 2.3.13 leak I tried renaming the blurhome.apk to .bak and have found that it no longer causes the phone to run lousy. Quadrant scores are the same and everything survives a reboot. I figured others might want to know this also.

    when I tried doing this my phone would come out of sleep to a black screen. changing it back to .apk would fix it. Maybe if I used widgetlocker alongside LPP it would perform better

    Your previous experience must have been an anomaly. I have removed BlurHome.apk on all versions that have been available for the DX (2.1, and all of the leaked 2.2 versions) and it's always been just fine.

    Weird.

    ...since my goal is to slowly but surely disable most things blur.
