Hallo,

I am sorry, to post it here, but I cannot post in the related forums below 10 posts.

So I had 4.1.5 and it was great. I flashed 4.2.3 now and it was great until after pretty much one day, when it becomes slow, had the same issues with 4.2.2 (becomes slow after a day until reboot or downgrade to 4.1.5) where I downgraded again, but it is not possible anymore without resetting the launcher3 due to some changes.

It will crash repeatedly.

Any help?

Kind regards
neox

I've been using CM based Mackay ROM for a long time now, updating to every new version as they have been released, and have not experienced anything like what you are describing.

Also, you should have really posted in the Mackay ROM thread...

@neox456! I am not sure I understand your problem fully. I have been using the same ROM since it came out for Kit Kat but never had a problem such as yours.

Could it be the no. of apps you have in your phone ? Or maybe because you aren't using low mem option (which was a feature of Kit Kat)?

It'd be good if you could explain your issues a bit briefly.

Did you install CM10.2 (stable) or CM11 before Mackay 4.2.3? This increases your partition giving you better performance and is recommended for KK roms. Try again with 3 wipes plus Format System first, then the CM11, 3 wipes and format again then the Mackay Rom. If you get into trouble, go back to GB 2.3.6 with ODIN like you did when you first rooted your phone and back up from there. Hope it works for you.

The difference was between 4.1.5 and 4.2.2/3. But I played around a little and the main difference was, that KSM was on with the later ones and not with 4.1.5 so I am pretty sure that slowed my device down after a while.

I'll try 4.2.3 without KSM now and see if it won't slow down.

I cannot answer on the official Mackay-Thread until I reached 10 posts!

Naaah, it did not really help...

But I guess it is the KitKat slow downs... it is not as horrible as 4.3, but still far from well usable.

Very strange.. I went all the way back to GB 2.3.6 then CM 10.2 (or 11) then SlimKat and it works really well with no FC or lags. (well maybe say max 2 second delay opening Whatsapp but I can live with that. Plus they all seem to have a 1 or 2 second delay when a call comes in for the screen to register.

Well... I am not sure... Maybe it is too many apps. At least they are not constanlty crashing like in JB4.3.

What about waking up the phone for you? Do you have a 2 seconds delay there, too? Well I sometimes have a more like 10-15 seconds delay. I press the power button and nothing happens and after a while you notice the phone is ready, because the LEDs are glowing and funnily you can already unlock it, although the screen does not show anything yet...

Well and sometimes it is only a few seconds...

I have always used CM or Mackay-CM... not sure, whether the other ROM will make such a big difference...

I had lags with CM in ICS so I went to Liquid smooth by aways .

I like that one, no problems opening apps or answering phone call. Pkus he uses semaphore and the Nova Launcher which has a nice look and feel. Pluis customisable.
Then after to SlimKat, (after increasing partition using the CM11) which works pretty good. I will flash the mackay rom or the omni this weekend to see how it behaves in comparison.
