The LG Esteem is not a very powerful smartphone. So some android applications have some lag when they scroll.
I found in logcat that garbage collector is working to much when I do some scroll in application.
I googled about it and found the ‘scrollingcache’ function inside android making problem.
Some application developers recommend disable ‘scrollingcache’ in app’s internal config. But not all applications have disabled scrollingcache.
So the mod I’ll do will disable the scrollingcache throughout the Android OS.

How did you get your LG Esteem to tether to your pc or any other electronic products? Here we introduce you the wifi tether app. LG-Esteem info
LG Esteem wifi tether app Download:
Once you download the wifi tether app, you put the apk file on your sd card in the LG Esteem, then open it with either an app installer or astro file viewer, and install it.
Remember: To use this app, you should root your LG Esteem first, or you will receive an error message popped up on my screen when i tried to run the app. "not root! Sorry, but your kernel does not have all necessary features for running this application."
Also, the wifi tether app confirmed working on ZVD, posting this right now as I am connected through my LG Esteem. Enjoy. LG Android Phones
