I have had my OG Droid since the first week it was released. I have used many different ROMs over the course of this time.
I have noticed in the last couple months that no matter what I switch to or use, every single ROM will slow down after a week to two weeks of use. I have tried installing cache-cleaners, memory managers... I have tried cleaning the Dalvik cache on a regular basis (which seems to work for a day or so) but in the end, everything always slows down.
Presently I am using Project Gimpsource 3.1, with LauncherPro. I have tried using ADW as well and experience the same problems. I have switched back and forth between the two launchers many times, and ended up purchasing both of them.
In my efforts to speed things up I have removed most visual effects that I can, bouncing screens, transition effects. I have spent time optimizing anything and everything I can to run as fast as possible. I removed most of my widgets now except for (LauncherPro's) facebook, twitter and agenda widgets.
I have not tried turning off WidgetLocker since I use its functions on a daily basis, but accept it could be this program. It's about the only thing I have not tried removing. I went from 5 screens full of stuff to 3 minimal screens.
I have tried using overclocking kernals set to "performance", right now my kernal is a 900mhz Raidzero lowvoltage.
Does anyone have ANY ideas what-so-ever?
I am ready to trash the phone and get a new one, but unfortunately I have no $ for a new phone.
