[Q] i717 Running really slow & Questions
I'm pretty new here, as in I don't normally post but I've been part of the community doing things to my android devices for a while. I am definitely not completely a noob, as I have flashed several phones all successfully. However I am trumped with my current situation.
I have a Galaxy Note i717 and currently is flashed with Padawan JB V4. It is a sweet ROM so thanks to those developers for pulling this through for the community. Anyways here is my problem ~ It runs particularly slow. Everything takes 4 or 5 seconds to load..simple things like loading the keyboard take that time and it gets really frustrating.
I have searched and searched to no avail, except for one forum post which said you have to do a factory reset right before doing any rom flashes. Now this piece of advice is on every ROM page, every user must have seen those words before as well. I definitely did not forget to reset my phone prior to doing the upgrade. So I am certain it is not the lack of a factory reset which is causing my phone these slow problems. With all this in mind, I have overclocked my phone using Trickster Mod, it helps a little bit, but gets slow again over time.
Here are my questions.
- If I installed a different Kernel, could my phone operate at all faster?
- Is Padawan V4 slow for everyone else and that is just the way life is going to be for my Galaxy Note?
- Do you guys have anything to suggest.
Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your help.
