    I have a rooted dinc with a Innocell 3500mAh Extended Life Battery . Other than the battery and being rooted (removed some stock apps and added wireless tether), its still stock (ie. ROM, Kernel, etc.).

    I don't talk, text, or browse the web much, but I do stream Pandora ALL DAY at work! Usually about 7-8 hours non stop.

    Ever since I rooted, it seems like it runs a little slower (ie. scrolling through home screens, exiting apps, sometimes it hangs or lags, etc. The snapdragon processor just isn't "snappy" (pun intended) as it formerly was.

    I was thinking about doing a Factory data reset ? or do I need to unroot, then reroot again?

    Would installing a custom ROM help?

    I appreciate your suggestions/feedback!

    Rooting wouldnt have done anything to change the speed. Are you sure you didnt install a app recently that did it?

    But yes if you are looking for speed I would get a custom ROM that has alot of the stock apps taken out. You can add back what you want.
    It will be alot faster

    Would a faulty SD card cause any slowness? Sometimes it won't read and I have to remove the SD card and insert it again for it to read properly.

    I haven't installed any new apps.

    A faulty sdcard could cause all kinds of problems including slowness.
