    Any tips on making WM 6.0 not so sluggish?

    It seems like it takes a year and a day for my i760 to boot up, load Mobile Shell 2.1, wisbar advance, and phone alarm. Not sure if there is a system tweak to make the os more responsive, or if that is just how the os is.

    Yes there are system tweaks. I posted them a while back so you might have to do a "Search" to find them. I posted a few of them for the registry.

    Same here! I'm running SPB Mobile Shell 2.1 also and when I soft reset it takes up to 10 minutes for everything to cycle through. aaaarrrrgghhhhh.

    Will probably do a hard reset, but I was hoping WM 6.1 would come out so I wouldn to do it all again.

    benkeller, They aren't URL's, they are what I have done to my phone that I have written in MOW 2007.

    Some of what you describe isn't the fault of the OS, but of the add-ons you're running. Tweaks may well help, but the fact is that those software packages are dragging down WM-6.

    Exactly. It is like asking "why is my car so slow when there is a big elephant sitting on the roof?" Maybe if you take the elephant off!

    FWIW, when my i760 boot time was reaching up to 10 minutes, I defaulted it and reloaded everything. BIG difference in boot time now. I had been tweaking away and just couldn't get it down. My guess is some of the stuff I'd installed and/or removed over time was causing issues. With SPB Backup, I just made a backup before I install anything now. If it slows it down, I restore. My install list is pretty long - around 40 apps last I counted - and boot time is a couple of minutes again.
