    Wow, a question about something other than jailbreak, apps, etc. etc..

    So my home button ( I think that is the proper term. The one with the square on the bottom in the middle) seriously lags. Whenever i try to exit an app or anything you usually exit from it takes forever to do. Usually anywhere from 6-20 seconds. Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas for a fix other then returning it to apple?

    Well, in this situation you would most likely use common sense, and realize, that if you have a lot of APPS or MUSIC, VIDEOS, etc. that this WILL slow it down, it just happens. My suggestion would be to eliminate those apps that you rarely use, and see if that helps.

    I don't think 13 apps and 1600 songs and 2 videos is excessive really.

    Especially for 16gb. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    well, its not the button it self, its your springboard.app that may have become convoluted. trying putting a fresh N45AP.plist in your /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ directory

    please rename the file to N45AP.plist, i put the .txt extension on to fool the attachment mechanism into uploading it.

    all you need is your SFTP program that you used after the jaibreak. to rename, just do it as usual. if you are running vista, open any explorer window, such as my computer and go to

    Tools > Folder Options > View > and uncheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" box
