I've wiped and flashed my nandroid no help. I use harmonia froyo rom. (tried her GB...too many new changes to learn, lol) I have 70ish user apps with Link2sd and lots of space left on card and internal. Thoughts?
Look up "Fast Reboot" in the PlayStore.
sushifor5: Your RAM is well below 50% of the 425MB that you started with. Try Running Fast Reboot twice. Then check available RAM. If phone seems snappier great. If not there is another issue, in which case you need to flash a ROM or backup that doesn't have Link2SD installed. If that improves things it might be your SD cards partition. You might need to reformat the partition using Mini Tool Partitioning Wizard. Reflash the Harmonica ROM and Download Link2SD and Titanium Backup.
Set up Link2SD, reboot and restore apps with Titanium.
I'll give it a go with fast reboot, thx. I do wonder if all my apps slog the system down. I'm not familiar with reformatting the partition or the mini tool wizard, but I'll see what I can learn.
270MB of RAM is now well over 50% RAM.Ok, the reboot helped...i now have 270mg ram. I noticed my Android Assistant app has a quick boost function and it seems to do the same thing.
So I'm now assuming that my phone is sluggish b/c there are tons of apps running in background I'm not using? How do I fix that?
You can also try updating the kernel, Harmonia 2 still uses the one mrg666 did for back in June or July and both him and I did a lot of work on the Low Memory Killer driver since then.
Your just going to flash it and install 20-30 apps to see if it was the ROM that was slow, or Link2SD that was slowing things down.
If you flash it and everything is still slow, it might be the ROM, or the backup. If it's fast again, then Links 2SD is the problem. If still slow, flash the Resurrected Bumblebee, if it's still slow, change SD card.
See where I'm coming from now?
