So I have the Droid 4 coming from the Droid 2. So much faster and a bit less glitchy, but still having some problems. So I thought I'd ask/post problems here and see what results I can get.
- Rom Toolbox installed
- Root Dim installed
1. When I type out sentences for texting/email/whatever I'm typing in the words seem to lag pretty badly. I was thinking this may be because i lowered the CPU to 600mhz, but I don't know why processing power could affect typing out words that much.
2. So the battery is pretty bad. I bought the extended pack from Verizon (A day before I saw someone here post one that seems 3x better for only $10 more... poopy). I use root dim to keep the display down pretty low and set up some profiles on Rom Toolbox's CPU changer to keep the CPU down when screen is off and when battery is low. I also keep it on 3g most of the time and use WiFi in my house and at work. Has anyone found other apps/tips that could help with the battery life? Does root dim actually dim the light or is it just filtered (doesn't affect battery as much)? I bought the extended battery for my 2 as the original pretty much lost half its juice after overheating badly during the summer. The extended battery would keep my phone going for a good 2 days.
3. What is the most recent update for the Droid 4? Right now mine is on 2.3.6. I didn't check to see if there were updates, but it says there are none now. Problem is I did not know I needed to keep all original Verizon files and deleted (not froze) a few of them (nothing system related, just bloatware - Verizon Music, MotoPrint, etc...) Some of them reinstalled by themselves through updates, but I don't think all of them are still there. If needed I will wait and just flash ICS when it comes out, but I don't like doing that kind of stuff as I am not THAT intelligible when it comes to this stuff without a step by step video walkthrough. Edit: Looked this up. I think I am up to date. System Version 6.13.219?
4. A lot of times it seems like I need to press an icon more than once for it to actually open/respond. The icon will highlight, but not respond until I hit it again.
Any other suggestions of apps for me to use? Any fun games people like? Thanks to all who can help!
edit2: Remembered something else I wanted to ask. I am using my Droid 2 as a DroidTouch type device now I know I can't make calls and wot have data access besides wifi, but could I still activate GPS and receive signal? Kind of use it as my all in one fitness trainer?
