    Whelp I'm gonna try n flash the latest steel droid, since I think its the only one with the updated cm 7.2 source, in hopes of rectifying this horrible lag problem I have. Toggling my 256mb swap partition doesn't really matter. If anything it runs a tad better with it, as I've gone a day or so with it on and off in hopes of getting a squeeze of performance.

    Same here, I also removed V6 & am going to start uninstalling some of the 60+ apps I have on my phone to see if that will help the lag.

    Latest SD seems to be running good so far, see what happens in couple of days of running.

    That my friend is the ultimate test. I always think I've finally found the perfect setup and then bam, crazy ass lag. I'm always debating whether its the kernel or not too, or maybe some build.prop tweak. Tough to nail it down I tell ya.

    Yeah I realize I'll never find the perfect setup, something will always cause a problem. Lately I've been flashing the same old ROMS back and forth, installing & uninstalling V6, Ram Manager, swapper, and any other tweaks I'm comfortable trying to no avail other than alot of frustration. Hoping SD 10.1 and any updates continue to run this good, glass half full type of guy, lol.

    Basically, with every rom you use it will be smooth and run good for a day or maybe even a few hours. Next day or too. Lag lag lag lag. :mad:
    Nothing can stay smooth and stable I guess...

    As of now I decided to go crazy so Im trying BB 0.6.2.1 and its running pretty good so far. Not liking that fact that it is Android 2.2.1. But whatever... We'll how this goes. Ill give it one day lol

    Yea I've finally come to that conclusion, that no matter what, the OG and its stellar performance is not so stellar after a few days. I've been on winner's cm7 build since it came out, but gonna flash sd10.1 in hopes that the latest source will help extend its shelf life. Or its half life I'll accept.

    BB is running pretty good for me. Seems like deprimed kernel doesn't work for it though..so I have to use chevy kernel at 1200 LV. I decided to try it with no tweaks and not even supercharger considering its froyo.
    I'm actually going to try metiCkmod for the first time and see how it goes if BB becomes sluggish.

    That's why I didn't flash a lot of the older ones.
