    Removing blur: effects on speed and responsiveness

    I've read that installing a non-blur rom can increase speed and responsiveness. If this is true, how does it work and does doing something like using a different launcher over top of stock blur have the same effect?

    No. A different launcher might make the home screens appear more responsive, but it won't tweak/remove system files. That's where the hotrodding starts.

    That is my short answer. I'm sure someone will chime in with a better one.

    What exactly is running slowly for you? or what difference are you hoping to see?
    The easiest performance gain IMO is overclocking.

    I'm interested in finding some definition of exactly what blur includes. I've run with and without and the most obvious thing missing on non-blur is the modified accounts/contacts functions.

    Blur is all the widgets added by motorola, but also is sms/mms, email, and some other thing im forgetting. A good idea is to flash a blurless rom and add the blur pieces you want, squidlys rom has that option, I flashed stock from a fresh sbf and ran scripts to add email and universal inbox back.

    A blur less rom is faster and better than a rom with blur, but it is vanilla and require more apps and widgets to spruce up the phone. Blur lags but it just looks better.

    While I agree personally, I think "better" is the wrong choice of words.. For instance, the facebook contact integration is a pretty major function. Despite the bugs and speed problem, I'd argue many would consider blur implementation to be "better" even though I was happy to rid myself of it with fission.
    I also personally prefer the blur implementation of camera/camcorder/gallery. The AOSP gallery was missing the essential feature of sorting by video/still and had an awful automatic tilt tied to the phone's sensors, so moving the phone caused the pics to move as well (sickening).

    all in all, stock aka vanilla aka blurless roms are going to be faster and more responsive hands down compared to full blur or bits and pieces of blur. After you take all that in though... consider this: oc'd at 1.3 on squid's full blur rom I came out with a quad score of over 2900, and that's the highest I've seen for a droid 2 ever, I know quad is just a giant epeen stroker but I can honestly tell a difference in my scores when I tweak my phone.

    Squids rom is as far as a Quad score is not based on reality... Its like moving the radar detector the cops holding as he shoots ur speed.
    Blur wise squids is fantastic but doesnt compare to anything blurless... There isn't an app out there that can "tell" me otherwise, fast its how quick my phone does what it want I want it to do, its not even close.
