My droid died today. I was in a panic because I use it so much! It was worse than when my computers die (I wear them out, too). I haven't been under contract for a long time and my old phone kicked @$$ so I thought the fastest way to get back on track was to go down to Verizon and get one from them.
By the time they went through new contract, sale price, and new every 2, it was $49.00 - not bad.
I ran Simply Stunning on my old phone and I could run any Kernel I felt like at whatever speed tickled my fancy. ULV at 1.25Ghz - no problem! So what's the first thing I tried to do with this new one? I rooted it and loaded Simply Stunning. This POS wouldn't even work with 4.3 at stock voltage and no changes in SetCPU. I could get maybe 2 minutes of slow running out of it before I had to pull the battery because it was locked up. I won't be able to make it back to the store until Friday morning, either, so I have been dreading life for the last 8 hours.
Then, suddenly, the phone started doing what it's supposed to do. It is fast, it doesn't lock up, and it seems that I can click through apps with no problem. I haven't tried any of the other Kernels yet, but I plan to do that tomorrow. What gives? How can a phone repair itself?
