    Do you have/use the car dock? I have the car dock and HD Station, but they would not duck with CM 10.2, and that is the main (well, only) reason I stopped using CM. I'd be curious to see if it works in the latest nightly. If so, I'd go back to it, myself. Let me know.

    I don't use car dock so don't know... However... Cm11 12/25 nightly seems to have fixed my MMS issue

    My maxx was becoming sooo unresponsive (took forever to open apps, home screen looked like it was rebooting all the time). I was at the point of fdr'ing but I tried out nova launcher. Totally worked! And, not sure if this is just a coincidence but my battery seems to have improved a little bit too. Solid recommendation as an alternate to FDR.

    To each and his/her own, but I tried Autokiller Memory Optimizer. I'm using the Go NEXT Launcher. Works ok. It isn't snappy like a newer phone, but it's functional. I paid enough for the NEXT Launcher so I'm keeping it. My phone was at the point of being unresponsive until I got Aautokill Memory Optimizer. I also use Juice Defender Ultimate.

    I'm having some really bad lag issues with a stock phone. After reading all the comments it doesn't sound like any one thing has been identified as the culprit. I had no problems with lag until just a couple weeks ago. Started to uninstall apps I most recently installed and 'thought' I found the violators. Just a day later I'm having lag issues at random times. Usually just navigating the home screens and SMS/MMS stock text app. Do you all think that it's MotoBlur? If so why would it just start acting up? Does it auto-update over night or at other times to newer and potentially buggier versions? I'm going crazy trying to identity what is causing the issue. Also, does anyone think that Norton Mobile Security (full version) could cause the lag? I saw that the Moderator thought so, but I've had that installed for over a year. Any feedback would be very helpful. Thanks.

    I've never had Norton installed on my phone, not sure why anyone would need it, but hey, that's me.

    Have you tried AutoKiller Memory Optimizer? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rs.autokiller

    See if that works for you, set it to the highest settings (Ultimate). It works for me. Not sure if you have to be rooted or not. I am. My phone doesn't respond the very moment I tap it, there is some delay to get it going, but it's only about a half of a second. If you go this route, take into consideration that it might kill your Norton task. There might be a way to exclude that but I haven't messed with those settings.

    If you ever had a Norton product on your PC, you would see how much it slows the OS. Remove that, guessing your speed comes back...not sure why you would need it anyway.

    I started having severe lag issues as well. I did notice under the running apps tab that Facebook and a few others were hogging thing up. I also notice that even though I had stopped the service after a little while it starts back up. Facebook was huge... but location services was higher. I unchecked the show notification box and when to town. Now after a few hours they turn on.

    Damned things don't want to stay off. I thought android stops programs once you have stopped using them. Where am I going wrong?

    Edit: why does the home screen favs contact app need 47 mb of ram?

    For me I thought it was motoblur too. I'm pretty convinced the google search update was the beginning of the decline for me. And the home screen would constantly refresh, driving me nuts. So I tried Nova launcher and I think because it essentially replaces blur, the whole experience has improved significantly (not like brand spanking new, but much better). I figured if it didn't work well, I'll just uninstall and FDR. But so far, have been ok for a few weeks now. YMMV.
