    I want that new Droid smell.

    OK, I'm a noob. I recently rooted my OG droid (brilliant! Amazing! Why didn't I do it sooner?) And have been running GPA14 with one of Pete's custom kernels for a couple of weeks.

    The last couple of days there has been some lag and delay. I want to get back to that snappy responsiveness. Now, I know I can flash a new rom, but what if I want a quick fix?

    Will wiping the cache help me? If so, does it matter if I do it in recovery or titanium backup? Any other tips and tricks?

    I want my new droid smell back!

    Thanks in advance,
    Kevin

    Yeah, if you wipe the cache it would help. But also a reboot once in a while does wonders for my phone, thats all that I have ever done to get rid of lag but I'm sure you can do more to fix it. However, my phone hasn't lagged at all since I switched back to GPA from CM7!

    Yup. Clearing both Dalvik and cache from recovery should speed it up.

    JUST as an FYI whenever you clear cache first boot will take a while.

    Thanks for the input. Clearing cache with reboot definitely helped.

    You don't need to wipe the regular cache, just dalvik-cache. The regular cache gets wiped each time you reboot on it's own. It's an android feature.

    Yes, it is the dalvik rebuild that causes a longer boot afterwards ...

    Also look for the screen redraw fix if you are using something like LauncherPro or ADW. That was my biggest lag issue a while back on GPA12. Havent really had the issue since then but if you have home screen lag this might help.

    Can anyone explain to a knuckle dragger like me what the dalvik cache is/does? Just mildly curious. Knowing won't help me do anything...it'll just help me understand what it does.
    Thanks.


    This is my phone. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my phone is useless. Without my phone I am useless.

    I suggest you run a different kernel. 1000 or 1100MHz is the sweet spot for most of these to feel responsive.

    But remember you are running Gingerbread on a device it was not exactly intended to work on, so it's never going to be perfect.
