i had alot of issues when i used the update.zip to go from 7.2 to 7.4, everything force closed and froze, im now back to 7.2
I must be a lucky one. I used the update.zip and haven't had any trouble with laginess(if that's a word). The only issue I've had is that the milestone browser is extremely slow to render pages. The difference between it and dolphin is night and day as far as rendering speed is concerned.
I don't use any text replacement apps though.
I've done it both ways and I thought the update.zip result was fast. But the Nandroid update method with a clean wipe first resulted in a much faster and snappier system. It really is a big difference - not sure why. I have no issues with FCs or lagginess at all.
I did the update.zip and my issues are the voice-text 2.1 keyboard doesn't work and if I power down my phone for any reason it boots up twice. full boot then resets and a 2nd full boot. I really wanted the 2.1 keyboard for the voice... I think I'm going back to stock 2.0.1 and finding a good 2.1 rom...
I installed BBeast via nandroid. Did sprecovery, nandroid back up and I also backed up my Apps through androzip.
Do I have to reinstall all my apps from the backup folder in astro one at a time and recustomize for example handsent everytime i update? Or is there an easier way.
Also both my keyboards lag BUT not in messaging just when in browser text fields.
Browsing is great but I notice:
it doesn't resize like the stock one(page fitting display), No page scroll indicating bar..and
When I'm swiping across or zooming in a page seems like the words or resolution thins a bit until I stop. Then it refocused. Happens fast and doesn't bother me much just want to know if its normal.
Thanks in advance!
