    Help! Screen turned yellow and froze!

    I have a DX (rooted a few days ago) and until now no problems. I have had Launcherpro loaded for about a week and about an hour ago updated to Plus. My first thought was to change a few icons. I did a long press on the screen to add an app and when I did the screen turned a yellowish color and froze. Can't switch screens, launch apps, nothing. I powered down and then powered up again and everything seems fine, so I tried it again, same results. Again rebooted and all is fine. Including pictures (taken with my girlfriend's X so that you can see normal screen and yellow screen. Sorry about the focus. Anyone have any thoughts on this? TIA

    I don't know what to say other than it sounds like a launcher pro plus quirk.

    Everything's fine as long as I don't do a long press on the screen.

    Steve - on the yellowish screen do you see the gray corner on the bottom right...it put your screen into "resize widget" mode - if it happens again, press your back arrow...what is on your screen? LPP is trying to resize a widget but I didn't see a widget...

    Bingo, that did it! I did the long press on a blank screen as you can see and I guess LPP assumed I wanted to re-size the whole screen. Hitting the back button took me right back to normal. Thanks a million, I was freakin' out!! All hail the Droid X goddess smalltowngirl13!!!!!!!!!

    You are too kind ...I don't understand tho why it was wanting to resize the whole screen - I have not had that happen - that part is odd...I haven't heard of anyone else here (altho I could have missed it) having that problem...maybe I will go check the LP forums and see if it was reported..if it is a bug, you can bet the dev (if aware, will have it fixed in no time)...Does it do it to all your screens? If so, drag it to the smallest area possible and hit backspace & then see if you can add a widget in any other part...
