    I've just rooted my phone yesterday and I dl'd the speed test app as well. I had speeds in the 16000 range, now after rooting I'm around the 5000 - 6000 range on the download speed. On the linpack test I'm at 14.65 mflops. I've deleted the bloatware, kindle, amazon etc as well and did a factory reset this morning and the test scores are still considerably low. How do I increase the speed without doing anything too technical? Not running a live wallpaper either and moved all the streaming widgets to the garbage for now. What else can I do to maximize my phone? I may be in a little over my head so any replies should be as specific as possible. Thanks in advance for your help. The biggest thing I'm looking for is browser speed and lack of lag between menus and screens. Thanks again.

    You'll want to overclock, then. As for the network speed there's nothing you can do to help that except not using a case, which sometimes will cause a signal degradation.

    Downlload Droix X2 Overclock from the Market. You can run your Droid faster with that.

    You've don everything else you can do at this point.

    in my opinion, benchmarks are crap
    why?
    nexus one, incredible, etc.(basically anything with a snapdragon processor) benchmarks 40+ in linpack, while OMAP benchmarks around 15(even though most of them are faster than the snapdragon)
    Dont go by benchmarks, theyre not really reliable

    You'll have to experiment to find out what your Droid X is capable of running at. Some guidelines -- lower voltage usually means better battery life, but not all CPUs can run lower than stock, and bumping voltage might increase stability and top-end speed, buta t the cost of battery life.

    Good luck.

    Changing launchers, like adw or launcher pro helps with lag, have you looked into the blurless roms like fission or rubix, they are alot snappier

    ROMs are good, but I wouldn't suggest to someone who just started rooting that they swap ROMs on the X.
