    Here's an interesting post I discovered. I changed my setting to 24m and my phone is much snappier and responsive now. 

     Enjoy

    How to speed up the boot time of MIUI, and any other rom!
    1. Get some kind of file manager that can access system files.

    2. Go to /system

    3. Open up build.prop with a text editor.

    Oh, and you might want to make a back up of build.prop (rom toolbox automatically backs this up 4 u)

    4. Find where it says

    dalvik.vm.heapsize=24m or dalvik.vm.heapsize=32m

    It's about halfway down on the file.

    5. Change 24 to 32 or 32 to 24

    DON'T BE FOOLISH AND CHANGE IT ANY HIGHER THAN 32, IT COULD BE BAD FOR YOUR PHONE!!!!!!!! JUST DONT!!!!!!


    24m or 32m; 32m being the highest anyone should run on the Droid.

    Setting your heapsize to 24m will make less apps stay in memory when memory is needed, but your phone will be "snappier" overall. And setting your heapsize to 32m will make more apps stay in memory, but your phone will be a bit more sluggish.

    Anything over 32m and you're just asking for a crippled phone after it's been on for an hour or so.
