    As I haven't found anything apart from Galaxy-S related posts:
    Is there any solution to the lag caused by the install-process? I guess it is caused by the writing to Nand (?) process? Data2Sd, a certain Rom, lag-fix?

    Thx in advance!

    I get the same thing. Very annoying.

    What's your set up?

    Have you cleared cache on market ?

    Leedroid a2sd. But I had it on the stock rom as well. It happens during the installing process, after the dl is finished. I'm pretty sure cache has been cleared plenty of times, or had been empty after flashin Leedroid.

    Hmm mines ok. I had lag with data2sd on a class 10 but maybe that's just me. Try it for yourself

    Get the same - also LeeDroid A2SD. Got much worse after I flashed this (from stock) - always assumed it was write speeds to card versus internal along with the A2SD script perhaps ahving to do more stuff?

    Partitioned with ROM Manager so that probably didn't help (have a GPArted CD burned for when I can be bothered to do it properly and extend to 1gb). Am using a class 4 16gb card as the class 6s are still too expensive at that size. Waiting for them to come down before I get one.

    I didn't notice lag on my class 4 either. Maybe its a sense rom thing too?

    Wouldn't imagine so, but you never know. Probably find out myself soon - 2.3 Sense for the Desire is meant to be coming early Summer so probably 6 months for a stable rom.......using LauncherPro already so I doubt I'll last that long and would imagine 2.4 will be on custom roms by then...

    This is it indeed.

    If 2.3 comes out with less than sense 2.0, I dont think anyone will notice any difference and be bored immediately ;)

    Very true, I would imagine very few rooted Desires will be running a Sense rom by then. A few may take a peek just for curiosity's sake.

    The only thing I really like about the Sense rom is the keyboard.ime, which I find pretty accurate, plus I need written Chinese for studies. I assume I could pull that from the Leedroid and use it in other roms?

    You can make your own in the high res kitchen here:

    http://www.gimpsta.com/themer/

    You have to create an account (free) but worth it.

    Just make sure you choose a froyo high res version (Also works on GB)

    They keyboard alone is not enough however, you also need clicker.apk (for the settings).

    http://www.gimpsta.com/random/Clicker_hi.zip

    Just install them as normal apps (rather than system) and they follow you from rom to rom. If you wipe, you can restore with titanium backup

    Ive used it for ages. I use it on non-sense roms as i cant get on with any other keyboard.

    I made a nice black version for myself and it looks much nicer than the standard grey.
