    so I narrowed it down to two really problematic apps; google voice and handcent. I removed both and the phone started running great. I really like handcent so I installed it again and it's extremely slow to open and lags the phone. anybody else having the same issue?

    In the past I got rid of Mms.apk and Mms.odex (before the deodexing) and had no issues w/ Handcent and text messaging.. but I did have to go into Handcent settings - under the Sms Receive setting --> Retrieve message setting and choose the option to Self-Check.

    I never tested it with sending and receiving MMS messages, but you could give it a shot and report back on whether that works or not too.

    Just some advice for everyone...

    It's never a good idea to run a ROM that is in "update.zip" and not wipe your system first... You never know if the person has written his script to wipe the system for you... and update.zip's don't do it natively.

    i did the update.zip way and i haven't had one force close. definitely faster than stock after overclock, but still a little laggy.

    Installed a few days ago using the update.zip file and things are running smoothly. Fast w/ of at 800 for normal use and profiles set for when not in use. Battery life is actually better now that I clock down to 250/250 when sleeping.

    I must be a lucky one. I used the update.zip and haven't had any trouble with laginess(if that's a word). The only issue I've had is that the milestone browser is extremely slow to render pages. The difference between it and dolphin is night and day as far as rendering speed is concerned.

    I don't use any text replacement apps though.

    I've done it both ways and I thought the update.zip result was fast. But the Nandroid update method with a clean wipe first resulted in a much faster and snappier system. It really is a big difference - not sure why. I have no issues with FCs or lagginess at all.

    I did the update.zip and my issues are the voice-text 2.1 keyboard doesn't work and if I power down my phone for any reason it boots up twice. full boot then resets and a 2nd full boot. I really wanted the 2.1 keyboard for the voice... I think I'm going back to stock 2.0.1 and finding a good 2.1 rom...
