Is my phone dieing a slow death?

    In addition to all of the random restarts and at best decent battery consumptions, I'm finding a huge amount of lag and choppiness all the time.
    Overclocking helps temporarily but then the next time I use my phone it's back to its laggy self.

    I've noticed this on several cm10.1 roms and I can't remember if it happened on aospx

    id venture to guess its the simple fact that 4.0+ was not really intended to run a device with a single core processor and limited ram.

    i know this prolly isnt what you want to hear,but id go back to stock for a few days and see how the phone behaves.if its fine,try your favorite rom again,but keep apps installed to an absolute bare minimum 'gotta have it' few for a couple days. if things go well with that,start adding them back in a couple at a time and see if a certain amount,or even a certain app,causes the lagginess to return

    up to now,ive only used my inspire for short periods of time,never all day for several days :eek: so its hard for me to say wether your phones behavior is normal or not. hopefully some others running same or similar can chime in on that :)

    The sensation is a wonderful phone! Next generation s3 processor(dual core),768 gb ram,4.3" screen. Like the DHD,its a world phone with a ton of regional RUUs,and a bunch of devoted devs. Definately a fun,capable phone to have :cool: holler if ya have questions!

    I sort of forgot that moving to a Sensation won't mean I won't be able to get your sound advice! I'll need to root and then find some good roms, so I'll definitely be hollering soon!

    ive switched my verizon lines to t mobile,so my sensation may very well become a daily driver again. its definatley one of my all time favorite phones,and the one that got me hooked on flashing regional ruus :D

    i also patrol sensation and sensation 4g forums daily. s off is a bit trickier now unless you get one still running GB,but still possible :cool:

    :'( I believe it's on the ICS Sense 3.5
    I assume there's no easy downgrade or anything?

    unfortunately no. newer devices started doing an hboot check,so no longer is a downgrade possible with a simple change of main version. :(

    youll need to do the "wire trick" wich sounds/looks complicated,but really isnt so bad.

    and since the team has stopped supporting windows,heres some tips to running the tool on ubuntu 12.04:
