Hey, I've had my HTC Magic since it came out and I love it. Android is the best around. But recently (for the last few months actually) I've been experience issues where when I press the home button, the home screen would have to reload (it would show the htc logo then go to a now loading screen). This can be very annoying when you're doing time intensive tasks and just shouldn't be happening in general. Is there a fix to this? I want to avoid reseting it but if I must, what back up tool does rogers recommend?
It's not freezing. It doesn't necessarily lock up... If I hold the home button I still get a list of open apps. What's happening is the home screen is crashing or just closing while I'm in other apps, so when I press the home button the home screen has to reload.
I'm thinking resetting the firmware or installing the new firmware (2.X) should get this fixed, but I don't want to reset the 1.5 on it and lose everything only to find out the 2.1 or whichever is out a week or so later.
Is there a date I can expect to see 2.1 or whatever the next Firmware update will be?
