    Well we all know it is the color change that is doing it - while building GB I am taking a look at the code again to streamline it. IF you were to wipe and not use a restore program, and NOT change the colors - you likely would see a speed increase. Once you change a color however it is saved in your settings permanently. I likely will add an option to clear just those settings to make it easier.

    Chevy - I never noticed this issue in 4.9, which I just upgraded from last week. Not sure where the difference lies, but just curious on why the last two versions have this delay.

    I've noticed the status pulldown slowness as well, but that doesnt bother me nearly as much as the UI lag I'm experiencing which I think is due to moving over from ADW 1.1.5

    I remember we had lots of problems moving to his 1.2 version, and it seems like the newer ones are the same. I even bought his EX version because it said it had optimizations, yet I sure don't feel them.

    I might have to revert to that old version to try it out and see if it makes it any better for me....

    (BY UI slowness I mean like accessing application drawer, pulling up menu's, hell even loading apps. Sometimes it'll just plain freeze.)

    Just for some more information...I reverted back to 4.9 today and I have to say its night and day with the pulldown as I previously stated. Its almost instantaneous in 4.9 in comparison to the lag in 4.96. Just thought I'd confirm that in case it helps in figuring out the lag.

    I am actually not only having slower pull down,but slower ability to answer a call and even lots of reboots.Last two versions have been like this for me at least.

    Is there a way to clear the setting in root manager? Can you tell me the default colors and if i change them back will it make a difference?

    NVM I have to retract my claim of UI lag.

    I dont know whether it was removing that live wallpaper, adjusting boot apps with autostart, or bumping up my overclock an extra 100mhz...or a combo of all three

    my performance woes are completely gone, even the status pulldown is severely diminished (still noticeable, barely)

    "adjusting boot apps with autostart," what is this? Is this an app?

    only time I notice any lag on the pulldown is when I have several notifications in it, and its the first time Ive pulled it down in a while.

    It only hesitates at the very top, and once it comes down it moves quickly with no lag. If I pull it down again right after...I dont get any lag.

    Very true, same with mine. BUT, Chevy said something about saving any color change you might do and on the fly colors can slow the bar down, but that the change is still there even after you put the colors back to stock. Can we delete the change in the system folder with root explorer? What are the stock colors anyway?

    I'm interested in this file location and change as well.

    Would clearing dalvik cache do the trick.

    I'm still perplexed by the change in the speed between 4.9 and 4.96 in the pulldown! I reverted back to 4.9 and the change in speed is huge. I'm not sure why there's the difference, but 4.9 is WAY faster. I didn't notice any changes to the colors between the versions so I wonder if this is really the problem??

    tbone,

    the app i meant is called autostarts, it lets me adjust when the droid loads programs based on profile conditions (ejecting media, changing wireless/3g mode, rebooting, screen locking...etc)

    if you know what your doing you can remove it from automatically making useless apps start with the phone (be careful though, some apps are actually needed even if you think they arent)
