Almost all major ROMs have it. Liquid-smooth and SlimICS for e.g. I have used AOKP B32 and sure it wasn't that snappy. I switched to Liquid-smooth and it's definitely noticeably snappier than AOKP. Also, have observed that transitions are smoother on Nova when compared to Apex Launcher. Gonna stick with this setup for a while.

OK I haven't tried slim ics, but I will if everything works properly and its snappier then I'm down. Liquid smooth cannot get GPS to save its life.

Any inherent problems with slim ics?

+1 and no lag. AOKP runs better on my phone than anything else I've tried. You just have to try many ROM/kernel combinations as I'm sure you've learned from the other responses.

But this phone Laaaaaaaaaaaaaags. And please don't tell me i got a bad one, or I need to reflash yada yada. If you don't agree about the lag, then you are in denial.

I'm currently running AKOP 4 & Francos 3rd Milestone + oc'd to 1.35.

I'll admit, his latest kernel sped it up again, but it seems like its only temporary. With every flash, it always starts out fast, but then after 2 weeks - it starts to slow down again.

Where do I notice it? Well lets see, try pulling down your status bar from the lock screen and see if there sometimes isn't a 1 or 2 sec delay. Is this due to the phone just waking up from being asleep at 300 mhz?

But its not just there. Opening text messages, call log, emails - its just slow.

I just kinda got used to the general lag in the system, but then I played with a Stock Galaxy s2 on GB the other day & I was amazed at how fast that phone was. It ran circles around my nexus.

So I got to thinking, on older computers with slower processors - if you try and run youtube at 720p @ full screen, it gets super choppy and laggy. Then I compared that to the nexus. Its trying to push ALOT of pixels. Is a 1.35 ghz processor enough for the resolution it runs?

Would a 1.5 or 1.7 ghz phone run it normally?

Whats with the Lag???
You just identified your problem right there. You're using AKOP. trying using AOKP build 34

On a serious note, I have no lag issues at all check your setttings. If 300min is too slow for you try 729. My nexus flys!

I don't see why most of you are saying AOKP lags, it sure as hell fly's compared to my nexus s :P (dual core vs single core lol)

Camera video effects don't work, dpi is too high when u first flash it, but can change it in the menu, volume seems low compared to my girlfriends gnex on akop+Franco.

Other than that its super snappy and has the same features as aokp.

There is a simple fix for the GPS issue with v1.35... I thought people came to XDA to get informed not just whine about problems. Some people come here to rant instead of read.
