    has anyone else noticed a slight drop in speed since first installing? i've noticed slight lag in the past couple days, and i'm thinking it's from cache and whatnot accumulated that's bogging my system down. is there a script or app i could run to free things up and return my droid back to it's snappy happy self?

    What did you install? if its a coustom ROM then just go into Recovery you should be able to clear Cache... I think you can do this if you are not rooted also not 100% sure

    Cache Cleaner is a free app in the mkt. seems to work for me. a reboot every now and again doesn't seem to hurt, either. i'm still hummin' along... just ran a Quadrant to see if i was getting any slow down. 1460 - so i guess that would be a "no" for me. :)

    i've installed nothing. i want to believe it's just wear and tear, like if it were my car, little performance drops from average use.
    but clearing the cache should help?

    i view it not so much as wear and tear, but more like an oil change - it just cleans out some of the "build up" that might be slowing you down a little.

    good call Husker... that makes more sense.
    yeah i used to change ROMs when they started to feel slow. but i'm having a hard time abandoning this one.

    Cache cleaner works great for me. Better than any task killer ever did. Its a widget so one click done.also will tell you how much it cleared.

    has anyoen used compcahe? just wondering if this may help. maybe one of you could clear cahce and use it and see if it helps? but remember you have to run script after every reboot.
