    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.

    I just found a video to install droid mod made by droid-life.com
    part1

    part 2




    how to install droid mod if you prefer that. I got this from droidmod.org and the person who made it is luniz7 from droidmod.org





    Neither I or DroidMod are Responsible if you brick your Droid!


    In order flash a DroidMod with DMupdater for the first time

    1. Go to Droidmod.org and Download DMupdater using your phones browser and install.
    1A. Downloaded pack, touch to install (dmupdater-10.apk)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    2. Once installed Click the DMupdater icon in your app drawer
    [​IMG]

    3. A message box will pop up and ask if you want to root your phone
    [​IMG]

    4. In order to load custom ROM's we need our phone rooted, so select "Root my phone"

    5. The phone will now download the needed files in order to Root you phone (takes about 2 min or more)
    [​IMG]

    6. When done downloading the root file another message box will pop up telling you how to reboot into SPRecovery (hold the x key and the power button while powering on)
    [​IMG]

    7. Turn your phone off
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    8. Turn phone on and hold the power button and x key at the same time and you will come to this screen, dont worry!
    [​IMG]

    9. Now we need to push the volume up key and the camera key at the same time

    10. Now we are in the SPRecovery menu
    [​IMG]

    11. Scroll down to "apply sdcard:update.zip" using your d-pad keys
    [​IMG]

    12. Select "apply sdcard:update.zip" with the d-pad button

    13. It will upack what is needed and tell you that the install is complete
    [​IMG]

    14. When done Select "reboot system now" (top where the pic is highlighted)
    [​IMG]

    15. Once rebooted, open DMupdater and a SU Request screen should pop up
    15A. Make sure you check the remember box on the bottom left and allow
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    16. Now it will automatically download a flash image and new recovery image
    [​IMG]

    17. Once downloaded we will be asked to update our recovery image, Select "I understand the risk"
    [​IMG]

    18. A second screen will come up asking if we are really sure, Select "Flash recovery image"
    [​IMG]

    19. Now we will be left with a ROM menu

    20. Select "ROM menu"
    [​IMG]

    21. Now select which ROM you want to install

    24A. Will automatically create nandroid backup
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    25. Now it should start unpacking the ROM you chose, just let it do its thing
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    26. Once its all unpacked we now see a screen asking if we want to "wipe /data?" ( Use your volume keys to scroll up and down, and your camera key to select)
    26A. If your coming from 2.1, choose "Yes, wipe /data", or "Wipe /data but keep apps"
    26B. If your NOT coming from 2.1 then choose "No, keep /data" (most likely the option you will choose)
    [​IMG]

    27. Now you need to choose your "bashrc (for adb shell)"
    27A. If your using DMupdater to root your phone and load DroidMod ROM's your probably not going to need to know what this is, so just select "Windows Non-Colored bashrc"
    [​IMG]

    28. Are you having trouble with Maps force closing? I dont have that problem so I chose "No"

    If you want to flash to a different DroidMod ROM follow the same steps above but choose the ROM you want. Open DMUpdater and start with step 20.
