Performance problem

    Hi,

    I've recently updated the firmware from XXKE1 to XXKG5 on my Galaxy S2.

    However, I've noticed that I seem to be getting performance issues that did not exist before.

    For example, previously on KE1, when I enter the android marketplace it was fairly instantaneous, with no delay/lag/latency etc.

    However, now - on KG5 - whenever I use the android marketplace app, there is a delay and a Loading icon (spinning circle). This is one for around 3-10 seconds.

    I've noticed a similar delay in other areas.

    Can anyone advise me on this please?

    Thanks,
    D

    1) The Market has been a bit "laggy" recently I've found.

    2) Did you you do a "full wipe" before upgrading your firmware?

    3) Did you install your old firmware's settings to your new firmware?

    Ok, what do you mean by a "full wipe" ?

    And, what settings are you referring to on the firmware?

    My understanding was, doing the flash update as I did, nothing should be wiped???

    Have got some concerns over this. What about any temporary data used by the android O/S? Surely this would need to be wiped if a newer firmware was being flashed? Is there a temporary store or cache?

    Thanks

    Sometimes when flashing different firmwares there are problems that can be caused by the previous firmware's configuration and settings. This can cause a general lag or, in some cases, a freezing or rebooting of the handset.

    In such cases a "full wipe" is recommended. See here:-

    Hope this helps. :D

    Flashed to KH3. Now none of my contact photos will appear in the messaging app.

    Any ideas?

    Thx,
