Incredibly laggy interface?

17 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi,

please tell me if this is normal behaviour or not... I'd installed 926 infusion, before that i had 926 stock and 927 as well.. problem is every time i re-flash phone it works just fine then i start adding some apps and when i reach let's say 3-4 widgets and +- 30 apps the phone gets super laggy, everything takes ages, and, for example, when i get a call it won't even load the callers name from the contacts, sometimes it freezes completely...

is this normal? or do i have some app that's making the phone this useless ? :)

Mine does exactly the same, I personaly think there is some sort of memory leak as I have (sense analog clock widget) installed and It registers the ram at very low values mostly in double figures on the home page with no apps running, which is low considering it has 500mb of ram. I also have very similar apps that I had on my blade and when using that its usually in the 200mb range when on the home page with no apps running.

if you have a backup
this should be repeated before restore backup[/quote]

Why on Earth would you do this before restoring Nandroid [Backup]??

Nandroid process formats Partitions before flashing Backup, so what is to be gained by the above procedure??

OK, before flashing new ROM, wipe all you can, including formatting partitions, and it ensures "clean install"....

but why before Nandroid Restore??

Remember, restoring Nandroid is flashing a snapshot of your device partitions bit for bit.... as it is at a particular point in time...regardless to whether all us OK at that time.....so before making Nandroid, be sure you have a fully functioning system, with no corruption or errors.....

Formatting Partitions is no protection if you flash a "bad image". Edited by irishpancake

Maybe running low on ram ??

What back ground services are running and how often.

Try limiting the amount of background services under settings/developer options/background process limit.

If you think its an app causing problems uninstall them one by one testing ph after each uninstall.

i'm gonna try this now... also i don't really have that much apps now, at 1st try i had like +-60 now i've got like 20 and it's still unusable :( kinda getting angry here.. i've considered downgrading but if that won't help then i'm pretty much stuck here :( also i'd love to avoid donwgrading...

EDIT: BTW I'm at around 250mb ram...

EDIT2: I've set the background services to 2 maximum and allowed hw acceleration and so far it looks awesome... will report back after some more testing :) Edited by Alexius321

Just done exactly that my nandroid did not restore for some reason and the phone wouldn't reboot so had to force dload 927 to get my phone working again.
Wouldn't recommended doing this unless you're nandroid backup is checked and working first.

No problem , was able to recover the phone, on a pluss side when vodafone release the official ICS update this method may work for people already on 926/7 as the restore from the dload folder worked but I also formated the data/data folder and the data folder in advanced settings on cwm. Don't no if this was the reason it went wrong but may have some potential with future official upgrades.

All these wipes are totally redundant. Performing a factory reset performs practically all the other wipes.

Fun fact: A "Placebo" menu was considered for CWM some time back, that would contain things like the Dalvik wipe, and battery stats.
