    S2 Home Screen starts up with 4 rows after battery pull

    This isn't a real big deal, but little stuff like this is annoying and sometimes indicative of something else going on. Starting sometime yesterday, my S2 now starts up after a battery pull or restart on the home screen with all four rows of icons showing up, instead of the one row selected in options.

    I cannot think of any particular event or software loaded that happened around this time, altho I've been trying a variety of stuff (no theme--don't run any themes, and never have on my S1, Tour, or S2). Running BerryBuzz and StopTilt, plus the 'usual' Google Maps, Docs to Go Premium, and a couple games.

    Not finding any settings.

    Any thoughts? Could always wipe and reload, of course.

    Well, wiped and reloaded and still doing this. It is what it is.

    Have not heard anyone else having that issue. Could it be a defective S2? Could you get a swap out, PIA to do but will help keep your sanity

    Try removing all 3rd party apps & do a bat pull. If that fixes it, add the apps back one at a time. I "think" an older version of QuickLaunch was causing this for me on my S1 but I'm not having any such issue with my S2. Also, if you shrank your OS try installing without shrinking. Hope this helps.

    Was just about to post--apparently the culprit is StopTilt (latest version purchased the other day). Uninstalled, pulled battery, and all is well.

    Now, if QuickLaunch would fix a couple of the bugs related to the Storm2...
