    I like my G1, but it is too slow. I don't have very many apps installed and it is still too slow. I went ahead and bought the big battery in case I decide to stick with it for another 6 months or so... which I think that I am going to do.

    mostly i want it to run faster. My phone can barely handle running google maps and navigation which I NEED. I have read that Froyo is the fastest android release yet. But, when I skim through the cyanogen thread about the froyo release it looks like a lot of problems people are having.

    1. Have you gotten a Froyo based flash to work ?
    2. If so, is it faster ?
    3. If not, then what rom has worked well for you.

    A class 6 /sdcard with ~32MB swap partition should help speed things up a bit.

    Dude my contracts up this April and I'm switching away from T-mobile for signal reasons....in the mean time I have spent too many hours trying to perfect my poor G1. So many issues for this phone from battery life to the teething pains of android. I seemingly have it squared away, from much trial and error...
    Recovery image from amon ra (most recent), danger SPL and running the newest nightly Cyanogenmod build...
    I bought the $1.99 setcpu app and set it for performance at 576 mhz.
    Also combed through the settings and turned off all animations etc.
    I bought a $11 extended batt off amazon and i can get a full days normal use out of the old G1.

    Hope this helps
