So much awesome!

hmmm, compcache included you say... wonder if that'd play nicely with my 256MB swap partition? I as well have been running deprimed #20 reports as #1 since it came out basically, on every ROM variation. That's weird that one guy a few posts up said it didn't work for him. I just SBF'd back to stock last night and threw on winner's latest and after I loaded all my apps up back up with the stock CM7 kernel included it was running good, but slowed down after a couple hours. Flashed prime's and it's been silky, buttery, '90s MJ fade-away smooth every since last night.
Little off topic, but when I made my 256MB swap partition I erased my 1GB ext2 partition and changed it to a 1GB ext3 partition, since I'm pretty sure that's more compatible with the majority of things?? No clue myself...but does anybody know if link2sd is still recommended to use?... as opposed to the native moving-app-to-SD option in settings? I know I used to use it but eventually I ran into problems of being bogged down, maybe too much action going on on the slow ass crappy, stock, mass-produced class1 SD card my 2.5-year-old OG is still rolling with...(reminds me I should upgrade to a class4 or something for christs sake). I moved all 3 options for the app in link2sd, .lib .dex and .apk I think, dalvik-cache was one of them too...But I just read on the Cyanogenmod forum not to move the dalvik-cache at all. Is the built-in OS dalvik-cache not recommended to be moved either? Remember seeing a script for that on xda. Ridiculous rant this turned into, geez.:mad:
And yes ext3 is better than ext2, ext3 adds journaling which protects your apps from getting corrupted and its also faster
And moving the dalvik cache that is related to those apps you moved is OK, since its really only used when you use those apps, however moving there osís dalvik cache isn't good since it will constantly be reading from the sdcard which is much slower
Also I don't think a faster sdcard helps in the droid, just ask chevycam about it since he uses a class 4 one
Also about using compcache with swap works just fine for me, however id suggest trying only compcache if you plan on having apps on the sdcard as swap might slow everything down (too much writing to the sdcard)
Wow! Nice info. I'll have to try apps2sd and make use of the partition I made a year ago...
Say, the market shows several "app 2 sd" apps. Anyone recommend one over the others?
Wait, so its bad to have swap when having all your apps linked to sd card? Ive noticed my memory is pretty bad since I started using swap + im a link2sd user. Only get about 20-30/256...
I have a class 4 sd card btw.
You can try disabling swap and see if things run better
Alright, and once prime uploads the deprimed kernel with compcache I should use both swap and compcache
Ah, that should explain why I use to have mad lag when I used link2sd and swap partition awhile ago. So even with a low swappiness like 10 on a big swap partition like 256mb still wouldn't be good with link2sd huh?
Is cfq still the preferred io scheduler for daily use on an OG? I was running pre-v6 supercharger with it but now its noop and there's like a couple second pause when I'm typing every minute or so. Or maybe that's the logging or somethin. I'm not noticing that big of a difference after supercharging this time around on winner's latest, its already incredibly smooth, gonna try undoing it and unkaking it and see if it gets rid of this 1.34 second lag :)
