    Default Went Back To GB

    I was comparing speeds and my rooted ics viper and my girlfriend's non rooted GB viper and hers was opening apps faster and loading web pages faster.
    So I decided to go back and ICS uses up more RAM, you can't debloat and it is VERY buggy in my experience, I'll stick with good ol GB until someone makes a custom rom, which im sure we will all have to downgrade back to GB to install it using PandaRecovery anyways(:

    Maybe it seems insanely fast and awesome to me because I'm not rooted.

    I ran this benchmark, but I have no idea what it means, only that I see it other places.

    Try using v6 supercharger to vacuum your indexing, that makes the phone scream

    It is strange how some seen to run great and others not... I guess it is the variability in the Google app store.

    I like this better than before, but to be back on GB with Holo isn't so bad.

    I'm just glad I don't have to

    I used quadrant professional, you know, the $30 version that you are actually allowed to advertise with, and got 5000 on supercharged ics

    I was having all kinds of problems after I manually updating ics .
    I reformatted my sd card and did a factory reset.
    I did a fresh install of all my apps.
    Now my phone runs just as good as it did on GB.

    Umm if your experiencing issues with the ICS update and it not performing up to your expectations.

    REMEMBER to factory reset when your phone boots, your apps are optimized to run on gb, not ics. The factory reset will delete all of them so you'll have to reinstall them, but they'll become reoptimized for ICS.

    Better than mine on ICS, but it doesn't matter to me what the numbers say, I don't notice the difference, and I like ICS better.

    But really, I like the LG interface, so I guess if performance matters that much, and you like stock ICS feel, then GB with Holo is just as good.

    Seems funny to me, I didn't think ICS would be a big deal, and I won't go back... yet others obsessed over it so hard, and now they go back to GB. :what:

    Yeah, it confuses me too. I like ICS better than GB, and the only reason I bought the Viper was because Sprint & LG said that it was going to get ICS after launch. Too bad it took 6 months after launch for ICS to be released.

    And then jelly bean... and then a custom rum for that. And then key lime pie, and a custom room for that, and then lemon berry crunch and a SUPER COOL 3D HOLOGRAPHIC PROJECTOR INTO MY BRAIN!

    Custom rum, and room? Sounds like Swype has lost its mind, lol.
