Honestly, not limping in the least. Runs pretty smoothly still no lag unless heavy multitasking (which i tend to do sometimes). Running MIUI w/ Launcher Pro.
I just want a 4G dual-core phone that is as easily hackable... just too antiquated. But it does everything I need it to pretty efficiently.
I'm seriously considering a RAZR at this point though... I just WANT something new.
Wow there's a lot of deathly ill og's. I accidentally tossed mine out the window of a moving car a few months back. I was frustrated cuz of some of these very issues. In that instance friggin Navigation wouldn't open up and tell me where the hell to drive and it kept asking me to wait or FC and I hit wait like 4 times and then it reset itself and I threw it down (and accidentally out the window) in agony. Still works since then, a testament to Moto's build quality, but it seemed to have gotten even slower since then. I tended to blame my issues on the fall onto hard pavement but it's interesting to see it really is more so just age. Unless all of you have had your og's take a digger. (How have you managed to break the buttons btw those of you that have said that lol) SMS takes on the order of ten seconds, same with dialer. Browser is basically unusable. Only the bare essential ten or so apps, otherwise I get a full disk error all the time even with a fresh install. Barely hobbling along on GB Miui, CM7 is definitely a no-go and CM6 was really no more stable than Miui so I haven't bothered going back. Dreadful time for these poor old og's. I love the thing and I don't want to get rid of it when I get my G-Nex but I really don't know what usefulness it will ever serve lol.
Mine is doing ok with DC12. Gingerbread was too much for it, just not enough ram. I do agree with the other comments that apps have gotten more resource intensive over time. Google Maps is one of them, it heats my phone up pretty good when I use it.
As already posted in this thread, those with issues regardless of rom changes should give a fresh sbf a shot...
i did the reroot method and my og is back running like new!
Roms I have used: Ultimate Droid, BB and petes gpa's, pe, cyan, ss,miui, liquid, and chevy.
Roms i have used:Revolution, romans, zygot, codenamedroid, Gummynex
Now-romans with Lean Kernel.
1. When saying what phone or rom you have, make sure to include the word rocking or rockin as a verb in the sentence.
I'm limping horribly, that's why I jumped on a Fascinate from eBay to hold me over. Should be arriving today or tomorrow. Sounds like ICS roms are coming along nicely for the Fascinate so I may be able to hold out for a while until the Gnex price drops as well...
After running Simply Stunning for a while, I decided the OG just didn't have the hardware to keep up with what I need it to do. It's slow. I needed something with more RAM, as we all do.
So, I bought a used Droid Incredible for $100. Looks brand new. Rooted it, and installed Condemned CM7.1 V8 on it. Gotta say, this thing is way faster than my OG. I'm not up for an upgrade until April, so this is my temporary replacement. No way in heck am I buying the Galaxy Nexus for full retail price.
