It seems like every custom ROM (for what I can remember) gets really slow and laggy after using it for an extended amount of time. I've had my captivate for nearly 2 years and have flashed many roms and this phenomenon seems to occur on all of them I have used for more than a month or so.

I reboot my phone at least once a day, and install a minimum amount of apps.

So, is it just me?

Thanks

The only thing is if I flash a fresh ROM my phone runs great for awhile.

In addition, I've noticed this phenomenon long ago and with a different phone (I got a couple replacements for other reasons in the past)

Same here, all the roms I've installed were smooth at first and start slowing down with time.

I flashed many GB roms for long time...without doing clean flash (flashing GB stock)...and my phone started lagging like **** on every GB rom out there....this is I am talking about before ICS came out...

then I completely wiped my phone...as much as it allows...then started again by flashing GB bootloader....super smooth again...

But with ICS i am not seeing that issue yet...

I didn't notice any lag for several weeks or so on ics, but it seems to start lagging eventually. I wonder if it could be that log files start to accumulate over time or something like that and slows down the phone.

possible, but roughly how many user apps do you have/keep?

In some ROMs in the past there have been memory leaks that would cause this behavior. More often it is a poorly written app that is leaking memory but is not getting killed.
So if it's been a fairly consistent issue take a look at your most commonly used apps. If it's been a flat (across multiple ROMs) issue then consider any long standing apps.

If it helps it may even be a Linux kernel issue, cuz on my PC that runs ubuntu I see a memory leak. Tho with what is effectively 6 GB of RAM I don't run into a slow down issue for weeks.

leaked from my ICS- FUSED SGS I897 contaminating you via XDA app.

ics will lag if you are using glitch kernel WITHOUT having the app NStools.

i found this out the hard way. installed NStools (as recomended by glitch page) and my lag went away.


as the day went on, and i used my phone the memory would fill up and not clear as it should, i could even open an app 8 hours after last using the app and it would still be on the same page/info i left it on. the app never gets killed.


sixstringsgs does not agree that NStools affects it in such a way but personal experience says otherwise. i was ready to go back to gingerbread. now i would never consider it.
