Android got damn slow

Problem
My Android phone got very slow. It started about a week ago. When I visit Gmail, for instance, I have to wait minutes until my new messages appear. If they appear at all… Often, messages are not updated. I click on “refresh”, I wait 2 minutes, but I still get the old messages. What da hell?

Solution
In this forum thread I found the following tip:

EDIT: I found the solution… Go into the Market and install AdFree. Update the host file and reboot to clear DNS, everything back to normal. Myn’s is preloaded with the Adfree host file and it became outdated.

AdFree requires root privileges. Doing the rooting process and installing AdFree, my phone got much faster :) I need a few more days/weeks to test it but it looks promising.

    Can this be applied to all android devices?

      I don’t know, I only tested it with my own phone which is a Huawei Ascend Y200. It got faster after the operation.
