After fruitless efforts to get some juice out of my phone with sense roms I finally decided to switch over and try out AOSP. I've heard AOSP roms deliver better performance + battery... I must be doing something wrong :/ since CM seemed to me like THE AOSP rom, i decided to give it a go. I'm on cm 7.0.3 nightly 81. I decided to jump right to a custom aosp kernel and so I went with savaged zen cfs 2.2.0. It's been a couple of days and I keep switching the governors to make the phone stop being choppy. I'll switch to performance, get good performance but then it'll get choppy later so i'll try smartass, then i tried conservative to see how that one works, ondemand, the savaged zen governor... they all seem to get choppy eventually as well as drain exorbitant amounts of battery. There is an "interactiveX" governor that doesn't stick, whenever I try to use it it switches back to "interactive". I've been checking spare parts and OS monitor to rule out foul play. What kernel/governor can anyone recommend with CM7 for me to take advantage of it being an AOSP rom. As it is right now I see little to no advantage being on AOSP over a Sense rom. I was running stock turbo before this and my battery was comparably dismal at 12 hrs a charge. I know quadrant scores aren't something to live by but people always boast about their quadrant scores on AOSP roms and I'm getting only like 1000-1100 even on the performance governor. I'm not so much looking to improve the score and find out why my phone consistently performs worse in everything than everyone else's evo no matter what I do to it. edit: Where I notice the choppiness the most is typing texts. It's frustratingly laggy. My app drawer will smoothly fly in and out, I have launcher pro's 3d screen transition with no issue. I try to type a text and it doesn't register half of my keystrokes.
