    DROID not as fast anymore...any suggestions?

    When I first bough my droid a year ago, it was beautiful. Fast, reliable, just amazing. When the DROID was able to be rooted...I jumped on that quick. I rooted and it was even faster. But for some reason I went to stock OTS updates for a bit. And now I'm back into rooting...but its not the same. No matter what I do, my phone is really slow and laggy. I want it to be fast again. Any suggestions?

    I removed some 300 pictures off of mine. Could be your step one, if you have a gallery that grew like mine.

    Might be an application if its not pics.
    Some days...you cannot run the show...just go with it. Why? The word mutiny. Because? My mutiny wins when I have had my fill. Today I am likely just going with it....

    Clear Dalvik-Cache, install an O/C Kenel, Flash a Custom ROM - just to name a few...there is also a script that will help with homesceen redraw if you are experiencing it

    What exactly is my "Dalvik Cache"..and how would I clear that? And I'm currently running BB FROYO 0.5, no overclock though. It just doesn't seem as fast as when I had BB before. And what kinda script are you talking about lol?

    Things stored on the SD have no effect on the way the device performs overall - the only disadvantage to having so many pictures is that the gallery might load slow - but it is not going to make loading web pages and scrolling through homescreens slower - the options I gave are the best known fixes for the problems you are experiencing

    Dalvik-Cache is where applications store excess information - if you have Root Explorer open it and go into the data folder and delete the Dalvik-Cache folder by longpressing it and then reboot - upon rebooting the system will rewrite the dalvik-cache folder but the unecessary things will be left out, speeding up your device tremendously...this should be done every month or so

    As far as the redraw script...get a terminal emulator from the Market and follow these instructions


    Here -
    In a terminal type

    su and enter
    Then type echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop and enter
    Then type reboot and enter


    Make sure the spaces are where you see them...for example after the two > there is a space before the /

    I do this at least once a week. My dalvik-cache is in my data and cache folders.
