    About a week ago I rooted my phone. Mind you, I didn't have HUGE lag issues like most before I rooted. Just the minor complaints that most had.

    I'm currently running Plain Jane v2 with a2sd and OC. I'm clocking at 710/528, yet my phone is laggier than ever. I'm at my wits end trying to get this phone to work at a substantial speed before I go off to college. At some points my phone seems really super-snappy, but those moments are short lived.

    Linpack averages that my MFLOPS is about 0.96 at all times. I read that the standard for the eris is 3.0, and I'm unsure why my phone is running this slow.

    Does someone know some tricks, or a rom that may help my phone out? I'm dying to just have something to make my phone usable. Thanks a ton.

    I
    I'm running the same rom on my eris and my speed is only about 1 second behind my buddys incredible. I don't know what overclocking app ur using, probably setcpu, I just use overclock widget. Also you can go beyond 710 I set my max @ 768 & min @ 710 then go into advanced settings on overclock widget & set speeds (freq) @ like 480 max 240 min for when screen is off then @ the bottom hit save

    Did you do the 2 wipes before you flashed Plain Jane V2?

    I use SetCPU as well. I've gone beyond 710 for short periods of time, and the initial speedburst is good, but it soon lags and all of them feel about the same. Besides, after reading around, it seems that most agree that 710 is the max you should ever set the eris at - if you don't want to run into long term problems.

    My phone is on 528/480 when the screen is off. Any lower was giving me lag when I turned the screen back on. (Even though lag is still very much prevalent.) I'm not doing anything wrong with OCing.

    Yeah. I followed each instruction on the "Universal Eris Root for Dummies" guide. My phone was wiped twice.

    So after you held down the volume down and power keys you enter Recovery. Then you preformed a Nand Backup. Then you did the 2 wipes?

    Well actually, after re-reading the instructions, it seems I only did a data/factory reset wipe. Which other wipe is necessary to do?

    Wipe data/factory reset" AND "Wipe Dalvik-cache"

    You have to do them both. Then flash the ROM

    I've noticed this too, but I have not done a wipe because I haven't/don't want to flash a custom ROM at this time. I'm almost tempted to unroot because my phone is such a PITA sometimes.

    Why Root if your not going to flash a rom? If you follow the steps on Rooting for Dummies and you don't flash a Rom it will slow down your phone.

    Because I only wanted to OC, use apps2sd and get rid of useless apps. Nowhere had I read that rooting alone would cause lag issues (and I've read A LOT!), so if I had read that, I wouldn't have done it.

    Just out of curiosity, what happens if you don't wipe the dalvik cache?

    Not 100% sure but I know on my first ROM I didn't wipe the Dalvik Cache and my phone way slow as snot.

    I'll post an update when when I re-wipe and flash later on tonight. Hopefully this solves my issues.

    So, is there any hope for me or should I just unroot?

    I only did the first wipe, and it was bliss when I installed my first rom (senseable). With the correct setcpu profiles and getting rid of all those craplications...

    if you did a full NAND backup on your stock setup, why not just wipe again and try something like evil eris or xtrROM which should *definitely* be fast. it would only be a few more minutes of your time either way.

    Install the xtrasense Rom and OC at 748. It's a different phone.

    I'll keep that in mind. xtr and a dalvik-cache wipe seem to have my phone running at full, functional speed. Thanks for the help guys!

    Yes try a custom rom that is close to the stock feel (any sense based roms) you'll get the added bonus of performance and reliability. If you don't like it and want to go back to stock you can. Just do a NAND backup prior to flashing any roms.

    Rooting and not using custom roms is pointless. My phone was unusable stock. Rooting and experimenting with all of the different roms helped me understand the phone better. It's like a new phone once it's rooted and you find the right balance of performance and ease of use.
