Moto Xoom running slow
Is it just me or this is normal,
I notice that my 1 month old xoom is running pretty slow, sometimes the back and home icons don't respond, applications take a lot of time to open, even Google's own application such as GMAIL.
My evo with leaked GB feels like it is 20 times faster.
Any idea how to fix this problem?

How often do you reboot your Xoom? Especially running non optimized Honeycomb apps, you will have to reboot often. At least once a day.
Are you running any non-stock live wallpapers? This can cause problems as well.
Good luck! Lets hope ypur Xoom starts to zoom!

You probably don't want to go through what I did but it took care of my performance issues and then some
The performance of my Xoom was getting frustrating to say the least. Constant force closes, the need to reboot multiple times a day and webpages taking forever to load.
I decided my Xoom needed a fresh start. I had been downloading and installing anything and everything since the day I got my Xoom and that is probably why it was running so poorly.
I decided since I was wiping my Xoom anyway I would root it and overclock it at the same time.
The difference in performance is shocking to say the least. Everything is so much faster and more responsive. Stability has improved dramatically. A large part of the perormance improvement was overclocking but a large part may also have been eliminating my large collection of apps that may or may not play nicely with honeycomb.
