The last few times I have loaded a new ROM I get outstanding performance on my phone, even the launcher (launcher 2 pro plus), but as time goes by, the phone gets slower and slower, until it is virtually useless. I have tried clearing cache, moving apps to sd to make more ram available, and using swapper2. I even tried ADW launcher with the same poor performance, and experimented with different kernel speeds than my maximum 1100mhz. I am now at the point where I want to throw the phone out the window. While awaiting the next CM stable release (I have 6.1.2) I have tried downloading other ROMs with ROM Manager, but they usually get stuck downloading at 2-3%. Can someone please recommend other things I can do to restore the phone's performance. I am really frustrated, but I can't fathom having a different OS than Android.
