    Ever since I installed ics last Saturday I've been noticing some serious lag whenever I type or try to navigate. Its not constant but seems to be frequent. I don't seem to have some rogue app killing my processor as far as I can see.

    I tried going into recovery and clearing cache and that seemed to help a little bit but its still noticeable.

    That happened to me right after I got the soak update. After a day or so it was back to normal. Actually, for me, it's much better.

    Ugh got so laggy I had to do another cache wipe from recovery. It's definitely some system app too as just clearing user apps does nothing.

    Yes. I have noticed it. My screen flow is halting/jerky used to be very smooth and fluid. Dunno.

    The only way I have found to fix it is to go into recovery and wipe cache. Try that.

    Need to track down the app that's causing this though. Anyone know of a good app that shows you the cache size of system apps? I know a ton exist for user apps but I haven't found one for system apps.

    I had some lag. I did a factory reset and it went away.

    Stupid question, does a FDR wipe the cache or are they two separate acts? I just initiated a FDR.

    FDR didn't help, as an example Google-News- Try and scroll. Used to flick and flip and scroll like Ice on ice. Now it is like it's rusty. Small issue BUT definately not better.

    I have noticed the scrolling in general in ICS is not as smooth as GB, like scrolling through contacts and settings menus. As a side note question, those who are having lagging problems did you re-download Adobe Flash and currently have it installed?

    Didn't have it. Just downloaded it. No difference either way. Scrolling is a little like me walking.......slow and painful:blink:

    I may be just imagining it but I uninstalled it and my phone feels a little better actually.

    Lag

    I have noticed a considerable lag after ICS. GB was a lot smoother. I do not want to do a factory reset so what other options are there to fix this? Or is a factory reset the only solution? Not happy.

    I am not even sure I would call doing a FDR a solution, more like a bandaid because the lag seems to return. I would check into the .214 leak if it is really bothering you. I noticed the system was not nearly as laggy, and people that had battery problems are saying that they also got better with that update.

    You can find the thread about it in the hacks section of this forum, a thread by Mattlgroff titled Kernal .214.

    Welcome to the forums by the way.

    Probably no idea since it's only a leak. Takes only a minute to do if you are stock .211, unrooted.

    No telling, it might never be an official release. They could fix more problems and release a newer version and skip right over this one.

    I am stock unrooted. But it looks too complicated to install.

    Well I'll give you the complete guide to doing it.

    -Download the ~6.7MB file from the. 214 leak thread. Do not unzip! Leave it as a zip file.
    -Put it on the root of your SD card.
    -Shut off the phone completely.
    -Hold the power & both vol. rockers til the screen turns on.
    -Go into recovery mode.
    -Clear the cache. Twice.
    -Select apply update from SD.
    -Select the file you put in the SD. It should apply the update automatically from there.
    -Reboot. Let the apps optimize.
    -Done!

    This is what I posted on another thread regarding fdr...

    Well, typically with any major new operating system, such as ICS, it is best to do a factory reset. Think of it this way... If you were running vista on your pc and upgrading vista to windows 7, it would highly recommend you to do a factory reset to get rid of os functions that might conflict with each other. Your pc could go crazy without such a wipe. Same with your phone. It allows your programs to install and load using the best optimization of the new operating system rather than having to sort through and running remnants of settings from the old operating system.

    It really is not all that bad. Use "my backup" and "SMS backup and restore" from play store and backup your apps, data, etc, etc. Backup your launcher settings and other apps you want backed up. Do the fdr just for the phone (not your internal or external sd cards). When you reactivate your phone, re-install "My backup" and you can restore most all your settings, call logs, etc from that. I actually reinstall my apps from play store and any that don't automatically load my settings, I fall back on "My backup." It will take you a few hours to get your phone back to the way it was but it will be well worth it.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-report-your-ics-razr-experience-here-33.html

    It does not make sense to not do an fdr especially when most complaints are those who are desperately trying to avoid an fdr. And then when they finally give in, they notice a remarkable improvement. Do the fdr, be done with it, then complain.

    I am having the exact same experience as others with regards to lag and ICS. Overall not pleased with this release. My phone has come to a crawling slow.

    I also just installed Shadowgun today and the framerates are not as smooth. It's playable but not great Maybe it's always been this way on the razr?
