    With so many threads about wanting to end apps more easily it is rather embarrassing that I have enabled shake to end apps by accident. With any app running I give the phone two firm jerks and it returns to the home screen. The app is killed not put into the background.

    I am running MCR2.5.1 with A2SD enabled. Today I have been tinkering with a several Market apps but nothing that offered this option, I certainly have not knowingly engaged it.

    It is rather irritating because it is quite sensitive and has ended the browser/email several times when I have been in the middle of something, remember the app is killed so all is lost.

    It would be greatly appreciated if anybody that has experienced this and can inform me how to disable it.

    I will post a video tomorrow if nobody can offer a solution.
