    Curious, I am complete newb when it comes to rooting. But why would you want to force your phone into 3G?

    Who said anything about rooting?

    The reason you'd want to "force" 3G only is if you are in an area that does not have 4G service. The Droid 4 has a separate radio specifically for LTE and by turning it off when it's not needed will significantly improve battery life.

    well i stripped out all the stuff running in the background sapping your battery... 3g uses less power than 4g, wifi uses the least... my overclock scripts also make the cpu use less power... the phone is actually colder to the touch... and runs faster... stock quad scores are around 2800-2600 and mine runs at 3030-3200 normally
