Root After ROOT...Phone Seems Slower

    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

    It just did it....I press the home button after unlocking it, it acted like it was gonna do it, then screen went blackish/grey and said loading for like 20 seconds

    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.
