Hello, I got my Ally a few days ago (didn't get a more advanced phone because I wanted Android but not the price/plans a droid __ would come with) and decided 2 things: 1. It's a tad slow for my liking 2. There's a lot of apps (mostly lg apps) I'll never use (ever) that I can't uninstall. I've already dabbled with certain things (flashed velocity 0.3 vanilla, found it annoying, restored), so I'm not a complete newbie, but I find all the things I can do confusing/a little scary. Can someone help me fit these requirements?: 1. run faster than stock (not necessarily faster than dark helmet's ship, we don't want to go to plaid now) 2. get rid of bloatware (one of my favorite words btw) like lg apps 3. reversible via backup (which i do anyway, just nothing dangerous) 4. won't make my battery last 10 minutes (does overclocking drain huge amounts of battery? because i'm fine losing a little) 5. good memory management (i use stock with launcher pro, and i get around 45 megs free most of the time, with velocity 0.3 it was down around 25) yes i realize some of these requirements are contradictory (speed and battery life namely), I just don't know how to balance these since i'm new to the scene. Now velocity 0.3 removed a lot of bloatware and made certain applications run faster, but it wasn't quite as snappy (screen would rotate about a full second after opening/closing keyboard at homescreen, other small things). Roms, OC, JIT, app2sd, themes... a bit confusing. Can anybody give me a simple solution? Any help would be insanely appreciated - this phone is so much better than my old one (alias 1) and I want to love it.
