I've been using bugless beast since Pete's first release, and have always been very happy with. I went to UltimateDroid a couple of months back just to test the other waters (forgive me for straying from the path). Dropped GPA16 on my phone with Pete's SV v2 1ghz kernel. Initially the phone was fairly snappy, but has since slowed to a snails pace. Sometimes hitting the power button doesn't result in an unlock screen for 3-4 seconds. When I am receiving a call, I can feel it vibrating in my pocket, get it out, and it's still a black screen. Waiting 5-7 seconds produces the answer screen, but even then, sometimes it's glitchy. Sometimes the first second of an answered call is broadcast through speakerphone, and then goes back to normal. Keyboard is laggy as well, sometimes even crashing. I'm using ADW launcher. Just wondering what to try. I'd love to stay with the latest and greatest release. Should I try another version of Pete's kernel? Another make of kernel all together? Back in v.4 I never had these problems with Chevy kernels. I installed the ROM with ROM Manager. Is that a no-no? I did wipe cache and data. Do having an abundance of apps result in less memory available to run the phone? Using Advanced Task Killer, I've sometimes got as little as 30M of available memory. I'm running Fancy widget on my desktop and that's it. I only use one desktop also (I hate clutter). Internal storage results of the phone are 208MB used, 54MB free. I'm not sure if this has any effect on the phone itself. I'm using SetCPU to control UC/OC. Max is 900MHz, min is 600MHz (I increased it from 400 as a result of unlock lag and the phone call issue- didn't help). Scaling is interactive. Please help me out. It's weird to me to have a laggy phone when it used to be so snappy.
