    sense has redraw issues. there is a thread dedicated to this , it is reported to be an issue on any sense based rom.

    as for better keyboard I can't say...I haven't used that one.

    are you using the stock kernel supplied with sense or a different kernel? it could be the kernel


    you may have simply got a bad install...(user error..maybe maybe not)

    I would reflash sense. make sure to wipe dalvik, cache, and battery stats. did you do a full data wipe on this install? do one this time

    then reflash fresh.

    the few times someone has an issue with fresh or any rom for that matter...this seems to fix it right up.

    I have had the same type of problem using fresh with stock kernel before, changed to netarchy and everything was smooth as silk after that.

    I would say go use another rom with all the stupid apps you have installed and see if it lags the same. I love how people blame a rom for what is probably an app issue and not the rom at all. I have been using Fresh from the beginning and never have issues with lag. Never use a task killer, and always install apps with 4 stars or better.

    wipe your dalvik, cache and bat stats .....reflash. though a full data wipe isn't suggested by fresh you should always wipe those three before flashing anything new and if you do in fact have issues after doing it that way...flash again after a full data wipe

    Up until yesterday, I'd been running Fresh3401/Netarchy419CFS with very good results. While it wasn't setting any benchmark records, my phone was very smooth and responsive, with improved battery life.

    Based on my own experience with the latest Fresh ROM, as well as the anecdotal replies in this thread, your experience appears to be the exception rather than the norm. Wiping your caches (and possibly a reset) and re-flashing might be worth a try before writing off the ROM as junk. IMO, Fresh3401 is one of the better stock themed, basic ROMs I've tried. Good luck.

    Fresh is the one rom I keep going back to after trying other rom's. It has always been stable, smooth and everything works! I have tried at least 3 other rom's and have had FC's and other issues and Fresh is stable, not the fastest but for something I use everyday I would rather have a stable build than speed!

    I am having the hardest time downloading it OTA. Can I download it on my computer and put it on the memory card somehow?
