Have you noticed any performance increase?

From the desk of Dwight Schrute
It definitely seems snappier, but that might be because of the new 150 rom. I wouldn't say that swapping makes it faster at all. It probably just helps in case the system runs out of on board memory.

If I had to put money on it, the lines in bold from the updates below are probably why it feels faster.

From M3Evo's post:

- Fast and stable with V6 Script baked in
- New Car Widget for easy access to main apps
- Gingerbread Launcher
- Tasker for automation and running scripts
- File explorer
- Pandora with no commercial and unlimited skips
- Updated all Google apps up to 06-24-2012
- Removed some system apps that are not needed to free up more memory
- Automatic Swap on memory (if you have a swap partion on your sdcard /dev/mmcblk0p3)

Also, when you are doing the partitions, use the partition software that M3Evo suggested follow the instructions

In addition to those instructions, here is what I did:
**Do each partition one at a time and in this order***
First the Fat32 (press accept and let it partition/format)
Second the Ext2 1.5gb or less only (press accept and let it partition/format)
Third the Linux Swap 32mb (press accept and let it partition/format)

Here is the link to the software and instructions:
