Default [Q] Running CM11 on Samsung Galaxy W [i8150] ??

Dear all,

Recently, due to some instabilities in my previous ROM, I decided to venture into CM11 on my i8150. After looking through the various choices, I decided on EHNDROIX V 14.5.23 for my i8150.

However, after installation pristine method, I noticed that it's very laggy. The swapping of home screens is fine at first, but the starting up of apps will take a long long time. I haven't seen any users complaining that this ROM is laggy (except for one post in the DEV section).

So my question here is this.. did I miss something here? I really do like the CM11 interface better than the CM10.1 (currently using) and would love to go back to CM11 but not until I have solved the lag issue. Any clues?

Also on CM11, somehow the Youtube App doesn't play videos. Saying something like "There's a problem playing the video, Click to try again".. and after numerious times, Youtube App still doesn't play.

Anyone can provide some advice on what went wrong? Thanks in advance

David

Hi.. Thanks.. do you use a different kernel with this to improve things like battery life etc? (e.g Hurtsky, Khan's)
Because of the lag, I read that Khan's Kernel helps.. so that helped a bit.. but launching apps still took a long time tho and sometimes it just crashes.

What combination do you use? How is the user experience for this?

Thanks..
