Fix the Froyo Lag in Your Streak
XDA member smokku provides all Streak users with an answer for the reported lag and overall lousy performance of the Froyo stock update. The dev provided us with a few files and a simple process to speed up the device and make it perform like it should. There have already been various reports of higher Quadrant scores as well as noticeable increased responsiveness. In case you are wondering, the files that you will be flashing will place anew custom kernel in your device, which comes already pre-tweaked for a few things like overclocking, so get SetCPU ready.
If you can, please provide your own experience with this fix. There may be tweaks that are needed but so far, this seems to be doing the trick.
If you installed official Froyo 2.2 update.pkg and find your Streak slow and laggy:
This update installs custom kernel, custom build.prop and performance tweaking post_boot.sh script.
It will not erase your system, userdata or anything else. It just replaces some files.
You can find more information in the fix thread.

It's a slippery slope...
