    So about a month ago I decided to root my Moto Droid (Great decision) but I noticed that it started freezing and lagging when I charged it. Is there a solution to this problem? (By the way, I'm using Sholes Mod to root my phone)

    I'm assuming you did more than just root.

    What ROM did you install? Did you overclock? What root apps did you install?

    If you installed an overclocking rom or kernel, you should double-check your settings in SetCPU. Under profiles, it has a min and max speed for different scenarios, one of which is "charging". Make sure you pick valid frequencies for min and max for that profile.

    If you installed a different kernel after setting up SetCPU, you may find that the frequency you selected is no longer available. If that's the case, it might be stuck at a very low speed (150Mhz or 250Mhz). Both are really too slow for any kind of interactivity and should only be used for when the droid is in standby (and 250 should be considered the minimum for that - at less than 250, it cannot process an incoming call quick enough to be able to slide to answer it.)

    I used Sholes Mod off their page and everything else works fine, the only root app I downloaded was setcpu and the charging profile I set it to was 1000 max 550 min and that should work fine. When it's charging it will only be slow part of the time and when I touch the screen it will touch at least 4 different places at once (Usually things I don't want to press).

    And it's any charger, I used to have an env2 with the same charger so I use that and the one I got out of the box. Neither one works right though.
