    How can i keep a ROM feeling Smooth?

    Is it ideal to wipe dalvik cache or something from time to time as with every rom i use including SS, it gets laggy overtime, less snappy, and it doesnt feel as smooth as when i first flash it. So what could i do to fix these issues and make a rom feeling brand new again

    +1 on the reflash

    Glad to see someone else utilizes a similar practice, I usually just experience a backlash when I suggest it lol. Too much work for people to set everything back up I suppose. The computer I do not do though, thats all you.

    So far SS5.5 has been the only rom I haven't needed to reflash to keep running well. Just an occasional dalvik wipe, cache cleaner running every night, and a fix permissions every once in a while and its running great.

    I just did a fix permission and wiped dalvik using RZRecovery. And i got a bootloop.. I even restored with the backup i made before wiping. And i still got a bootloop. So i had to reflash and do everyyyything again...

    If you're are tweaking settings, flashing kernels, themes, tweaking OOM/RAM settings then I would suggest not to doing that anymore. As soon as you flash, then restore your apps (without data) then leave it alone. Leave it as stock as possible since developers already put a lot of time into finding the best settings for our OG.

    I don't know about others but I seem to have fixed my lag by disabling compcache. With it on, without a reboot right before (even with daily reboots) Angry Birds for example would bog down and eventually hang. This was whether I was running 800Mhz LV or the stock 1Ghz LV kernel. Turning off compache a day ago, not rebooting since, has resulted in minimal temporary lag in Angry Birds (just using it as a reference point) and the phone overall has seemed snappier. I may try turning it back on and do a dalvik wipe to compare. I guess though if running compcache means daily reboots and weekly cache wipes and not running it means similar good performance but no reboots and wiping, disabling it might win out for me.

    compcache = garbage.

    I would recommend partitioning your SD for SWAP space and running Swapper2. Be sure to tell Swapper2 to use your SWAP partition as it defaults to using a SWAP file instead since some people don't know how to partition a SD.

    Heres something I've never seen someone suggest, go back to clockwork mod recovery, the difference in chevys rom for some reason is night and day, I first flashed chevys rom using CWM and it ran like a dream, then I switched to RZR recovery and flashed a few different roms, but when I went back to chevys it was like a completely different laggy, buggy rom. First I tried reflashing, changing supercharger values, and pretty much anything I could think of that might improve speed. Nothing. Then I decided to try to go back to CWM and see if it made a difference. Running as smooth as any rom I have ever flashed now. Don't know why my phone works that way or if its something different with the recoverys but its worth a shot, right?
    Btw no compcache on, no swap on, supercharger values on aggressive 2, with chevys stock kernel.
    Overtwo you are supposed to tweak settings on your phone, if you haven't noticed all phones run things differently, so what works perfectly on the devs phone could be a laggy buggy mess on yours, tweak all the settings in your phone to what you want and what makes YOUR phone run the best.
