Make sure you have it set to ondemand, not performance. Every time you reboot, the settings will default back to performance. I forget the exact settings for setCPU but i know that the max should be set to 500+ and the minimum should be 245 I believe.

switch to Pancake ROM ..it has the kernel built in ...I'm using Pancake ROM once again...why? IT'S FAST and it doesn't drain the battery as much as other ROM's I've tried..

This is taken directly from the tutorial:

a.No. Rooting alone will not do this for you. Installing a custom ROM like Fresh 1.1 along with other custimizations like Gumbo Kernel and setCPU will help speed up your phone, and can improve battery life.

a. Many custom ROMs already have several Sprint Apps removed. Some of those you may want back. If you have Fresh 1.1 installed, you can use pre-kitchen to add/remove Sprint apps (yes you can do this even if you manually rooted you phone). If don't have Fresh 1.1 or prefer to do it manually, you can find instructions here and a list of apps that are safe to remove here.

ive actually pulled up the removing software page, but am confused as to what to do with it. i did the auto root and didn't have to type in any commands. i pull the command prompt up on my computer, and then type in what? i guess i wasn't being specific enough. it says you can screw up your phone, so i was asking what exactly do i type in it says this is an example.

as far as making my phone faster, i read that rooting doesn't make it faster. i put fresh 1.1 on my phone and the gumbo kernal along with the setcpu. i didn't notice much difference like everyone else had, and the setcpu had actual settings. so i guess i was asking, what exact settings do i put it at. my battery doesn't seem to be changed significantly so i didn't know if there was something i was overlooking.

As stated in FAQ #18, you can use pre-kitchen to add/remove sprint bloatware (this works with 1.5). This is all done through the GUI of pre-kitchen.

If you do want to do it manually, you have to install the SDK.
