I flashed the cwm before I got root, is this why I was having issues with my phones functionality? It stopped acting out when I flashed the penguin .exe
Or are these xposed links to apps that fix that erratic behavior from our SGL?

And do I need install these xposed if my phone seems to be working better than ever?

What trouble are you having, mine randomly "freezes" and I have not been able to figure out why

odin flashed gardaltetmo_cwm.tar.md5 then my phone was acting funny, slow and apps would seen to just forget they were running. I was so tired I flashed cwm before I had root. I thought at the time that it was the cwm causing the issue.
So I got on my pc and read more off the thread and eventually came across an app that looked allot like odin. Shabbypenguin or something. After flashing root my phone was even more responsive than the day I bought it.

Still don't know what those Xposed links are for...

The Xposed links are so you can install the Xposed Framework and any modules for it. The RootCloak module lets you hide root from apps. Isis, for example. I haven't found any other fully functional/useful modules yet. Wanam Xposed and Advanced Power Menu looked promising, but don't work perfectly with Touchwiz roms.

As far as freezing/random app crashes, I have not had any issues. I'm using the "Stock" kernel that shabbypenguin first posted, I think his One Click exe may use a different one. Still have the stock recovery, waiting for an Online Nandroid Backup patch before changing to CWM. I also use ES Task manager's Kill All widget after every reboot and clear cache data frequently.

I wish I had the experience. Probably would've kept stock recovery myself. But I was impatient. Without nandroid i really shouldnt be messing w cwm.
