    hi there could be the firmware, as i know a few people who have updated to 2.2 and it being laggy, there was a 2.2.1 firmware released which i have installed and seems to do the trick.

    go so Settings-Appications-Development- and put a tick on USB debugging. It did the trick for me (as well as a factory reset and not using of a live-wallpaper and no apps on SD card). Now everything is just as smooth as i wish my Android phone to be (finally im not bugged by my mate with iPhone anymore) :)

    Nice 1 Fish-Bone, I just found this fix. My Legend been soooo slow since 2.2, amazing how just ticking a check box speeds it up so much! I was even considering defecting 2 the 'dark side' ( iphone ) if i couldn't sort it's arse out. Should have looked it up sooner i guess. That's newbies 4 u !! hahahhahaha! cheers again.

    Easy way to make your HTC running fast again


    1. Turn off your phone
    2. Remove SIM card
    3. Turn your phone ON without SIM card
    4. Turn it off again once everything is loaded
    5. Insert SIM and then turn it on again

    it will work very fast.

    Enabling USB debugging helped on my Legend as well.
    I was getting 100% CPU usage out of the blue, and with no pattern to it. This made the phone slow and laggy, and close to unusable.
    But since I enabled USB debugging it has dissapeared. Thanks Fish-Bone.

    This tip has stopped me from throwing my Legend across the room at high velocity... Since 2.2 update my phone was practically unusable and incredibly frustrating. Why ticking one box would sort out the entire phone I'll never know but it works like a dream now so thank you thank you thank you!! HTC should employ this guy as a troubleshooter! He's got to be better than the numpty geeks who currently work there...

    I'm happy that this works.. but I can't help but wondering if there is any caveat to turning this on..

    Nope, i'l try that next if im still having problems. seems ok so far tho! if i do have to factory reset, is there any advice for saving things that i have on my fone (layouts etc.) ?

    My phone was very slow and constantly hanging after the 2.2 update. Ticking the USB-debugging box like you guys said worked perfectly, it works like a charm!

    Thank you guys!

    USB Debugging is meant for app development, so its more than just a box ticked. I believe it changes something in the system that's meant to help developers get rid of bugs. I would guess this is why it helps - its "debugging". Although its supposed to work over USB - that's the weird part.

    When I try and connect my Legend to my PC since ticking debugging box nothing happens. The notifications panel doesn't show the mount usb option like it used to. I have tried unchecking the debugging box and that doesn't help... any suggestions gratefully received!

    don't worry. The age old trick of turning the phone off and on again has solved the above problem. Why we still have to go through this malarkey in 2011 is beyond me!

    I have been suffering for weeks and lost more hair than usual.
    i searched and searched and found this page. THANK YOU FOR POSTING this fix worked for me.

    I both changed the USB setting and power-cycles with removing, then reinserting the SIM as suggested.

    Immediately my phone got back to "normal" speed like the day before and after my update (I only noticed the slow down a week or two after update)

    I truly appreciate the effort that people volunteer to helping solve these gadget bugs (and I run an IT company and I perform QA almost every week; I know how hard it is to find these fixes!)
