Forcing GPU in dev settings seems to help lag for me ( still have multi user set up) , any disadvantages of this?

Storage nearing full also a factor I think, shouldnt be but seems that way.

Placebo effect.

Best solution is still to not install 4.2, it's the Windows ME of Android... Why spend all this time figuring out how to make an OS run correctly? It should have done it out of the box.. 4.2 is trash..

Maybe accusations of placebo effect are a placebo effect..

Have had major lagginess and its better for me after force gpu is on. only other change I made was to delete some pics.

Seems the source of lags are numerous. Multi user, free space, apps playing up etc. So there is no one fix, just reporting my findings.

calls of 'placebo' and 'just roll back' are a little unnecessary and not v enlightening!

I confirm that this solution fixes most of the issues that I experienced since 4.2. Used to be slow as hell : waking up the device could take up to 30 seconds, buttons would freeze for 5 or 10, launching an app would also take forever, and I couldn't count the ANR anymore etc... Now device is running as smoothly as it was on 4.1. Still experiencing the weird issues with lockscreen/homescreen mainly put this is pretty minor compared to the huge lag.

Thanks !

Which solution? The OP's solution? Forever gone app solution? Force GPU solution?

Hopefully this doesn't get buried, but disabling sync didn't do the trick for me. I had to disable sync, clear cache, delete data and disable for my nexus to return to how it had performed before

Knock on wood but things are great now after trying the "forever gone" app. Buttery smooth again.

It actually is placebo.
All force GPU rendering does is literally "force" the gpu to render graphics on apps that don't already have it enabled. Which every app virtually does. I believe android has it on by default now so devs actually have to turn it off in their app if they don't want it. All of the Android OS already uses GPU rendering

Hope this clarifies :thumbup:
