    Recently here, my phone has been acting up. I go to text fast(on screen) and half the time I get a different word than I'm suppose to because it never registered me hitting a button or two or three...

    It was fine before. Anyway to clear this up?

    Are you overclocked?

    950mhz. Was 800.

    To be honest I feel no difference in almost anything from 550-800 or 950. I thought it would speed up the typing, but nope.

    It's the kernel. Try a different ROM. Newest Sholes coming out tonight should be good.

    Yes, its the kernel. Th3Steve from All droid has a fixed 1ghz kernel that I use.

    I've been using that one too - works great. Newest Sholes is supposed to include the patch as well.

    Good to know about Sholes. I know they were talking about including it, but didn't know they had released it already.

    Awesome :)

    Wait...are you talking about typing on the forum or in the browser, or just in general?

    Just in general, using the virtual keyboard.

    I have zero issues on Bugless Beast with typing, and I am one fast typing mofo. However, if using the ported Milestone browser and trying to type on any forums, you will experience lag.

    Cool.

    Unfortunately, there is a somewhat large group of people who do have problems with the virtual keyboard, using the overclock kernels.

    The lag in the virtual keyboard was one of the reasons I went back to stock. I like to type fast, and it pissed me off that I had to type much slower on purpose in order for the keyboard to keep up with me.

    Well, now you have a reason to go back, now that there are some revised kernels out there.
