[Q] Speed! How to make it faster...
Well I must say, aside from some slowdowns, the Nook HD+ with Carbon Rom is really REALLY nice. I was given it from a friend who didn't want it and if not for XDA it would have been on Craigslist the next day. Uncovering the Android potential within this device has really opened it up, the gorgeous display doesn't hurt either...
...its just.... SSSssssllllllllloooooww; SLOW!
I do run Startup manager and task killer occasionally to keep things in check. I like to have as little daemons as possible running in the background. I do have Nova Launcher running, but thats about it. Everything else are Android system files and the kernel processes that are necessary.
In Startup Manager, under the "User" tab, I have the following startup daemons run:
Google Play Services
Question: Are the 2 Google ones really necessary and does SD Booster really work?
