@mitraark : yes. with cm7 and overclocked to 1.1 ghz, it still struggles to handle live wallpapers. It seems like this issue is only with me and not with all defy owners :(

are u using cm7 leaked GB version and your camera working with green lens? plz confirm. bcoz according to XDA green lens(color doesn't matter) wont work. if you have bayer lens( green, red, yellow) it will work

i'm using quarx's cm7.. updated to nightly jordan

I have not root my phone yet.. gonna do it after the sem.. till now I am stuck with stock rom..

the main issue is sometime my phone is not showing the right time. it should at least keep track of the time..

Sometime, even ninjump lags.. so does angry bird rio

I got a email today from a friend of mine with this. See for yourselves & what do you make of it

The first picture is of the box, where it clearly says it is manufactured by M/s Motorola Mobility Chennai Pvt Ltd. etc.

Now take the phone out of the box, open the back cover and pull out the battery, and see what it says.

Maybe this is one reason why we are way behind China --- we sell Chinese products as our own. One step after "me too". :shock:

Could be its just assembled here. Screwdriver technology??

I am using it for 2 months and dont have such lagging problems. May be some app is eating your memory. Try restarting the phone and uninstalling unneeded apps. Also, rooting the phone, overclock+undervolt, installing a firewall, switching data on and off will increase battery life and performance. If you are comfortable, you should install a custom ROM. Trust me, there is a huge difference. For live wallpapers, I am sure other than the dual core phones, all of the smart phones have trouble handling:neutral:.

Yeah, I think I am gonna root my phone soon.. 1st i thought i will wait till December, but since ICS is releasing in few days, I will try GB before it. I am using android booster and it takes around 21 mb of ram.. and google maps takes much too. but i could not close it for perm..

btwn any solution for the clock issue?

Which version of clockworkmod did you install and where did u get it from? Defy doesnt have an unlocked bootloader, so the latest general versions will not always work on it.
You can boot your phone properly right? then install 2nd init on it. (Assuming you have already rooted it.)
Please go through this thread - XDA Defy Guide
Please tell us if you are facing any trouble following the post.
Try these form the forum post:

1. Download this SBF and Flash it
2. Root your Phone
3. Download 2nd Init 1.4.2 and Install ClockworkMod Recovery
4. Download and install this Nandroid Backup
5. Enter Recovery, Wipe Data/Cache
6. After wiping, turn off your phone
7. Turn it on and get immediately into Bootloader mode
8. Flash this Fixed SBF
9. Delete Data/Cache again and reboot.

For flashing also there is a procedure mentioned there.

to take backup of your phone your phone needed to be rooted, unless you use the paid version. but it does not matter, u can easily uninstall the superuser app and unroot your phone. The backup is needed when you are installing custom rom, or flash over your stock rom.

Btwn I have installed CM7 7.1.0 stable few hours ago, and i love the UI. having a bit issues, but i guess i can solve it using the tweeks
