I got this tip from another thread and I canít find it again, even after vigorous searching. I would like to give credit to that poster, but I canít find him. So, whoever you are, thank you!
If you have the app Spare Parts, you can set the Windows Animations and Transition Animations speeds to any of the following: Very Slow, Slow, Normal, Fast, Off. When I first installed Spare Parts, mine were both set to normal. I bumped them up to Fast. Both of these actions were noticeably faster (as you would expect). I think this is a very good tip especially for anyone that is overclocked. I donít really know how it would impact a phone at 550mhz, because I never tried it at that speed. But Iím running BB7.4 at 950 and it makes the screen changes snappier.
I was also wondering about the earlier threads where people had overclocked but did not feel there was much difference in perceived speed. Could their setting for these values have been set to something below ďnormalĒ. Just a thought.
