    Angry Factory Data Reset on the horizon

    I too have had the dreaded MEDIA problem for the past few weeks now and it looks like I'm headed for a Factory Data Reset. As my phone is not rooted, does anyone have good advice on the step by step instructions to back up and then restore all of the relevant stuff on my phone, including photos, etc., format my SD card, etc.? I'd like to start as clean as possible to see if that helps. I've also seen mention that it may be best to do the FDR 2x -- is that true?

    Thanks,
    A frustrated Droid RAZR Maxx user

    What's got me baffled is the inconsistency. Last Thursday, I did 2 FDRs, 2 cache wipes, reloaded JB, did 2 more FDRs and 2 more cache wipes, rooted, and loaded Safestrap. Friday, I only got about 12 hours before I had to recharge. I took the phone off of the charger around 730 Saturday morning. I just got the best battery life out of a charge since I've owned this Maxx. I hope it continues....

    Edit: forgot to mention that I hooked my phone up to some speakers and played music for 4 hours Saturday morning add well. That was the only time that I saw mediaserver active and using battery....

    Yeah...I hear ya. Its almost like a reconditioning of the phone. FDRs are a pain, but well worth it. I wonder if most had a bad download with the pushed OTA..but usually a couple of FDRs should help along with a battery cal..but in your case its not needed. Maybe you are on to something. I'm getting a good day but I am using smart actions..

    Is it possible that "media" is cataloging all the media files on the phone? If so, then, cache wipes and resets will do nothing more than cause media to recheck all of those files all over again.

    Also consider this - but some call it voodoo science - any time phone is reset or a major update is installed it needs to "settle in" which can take a few days. During those days, battery life will more than likely be terrible. Afterwards though, it will improve significantly. I have experienced this on almost every WM and android phone I have owned including my Maxx.

    I regularly get greater than 24 hours of continuous battery life out of my maxx after the initial few days following a reset.

    Ran some errands and drove to work with navigation running. I pulled in the parking lot, checked my email, and then took a 10 minute phone call. Right at 50 hours, I got the 15% warning. The phone was in my pocket when about 15 minutes later I got a 5% warning. I turned it off and plugged it into the factory ac charger. I think the rapid drop off at the end indicates that its time for a Foxkat.

    And I 100% agree with the settle in time. I think the apps need some time to get settled in, too.

    Mine's been "settling" for over a week now, and still crappy battery life (it drops about 8-10% per hour). Now I'm trying uninstalling apps that might call media - one at at time. I uninstalled my 3rd-party gallery app, and that didn't make any difference, so I put it back on. Next up, Pandora. I may finally bite the bullet & do the FDR this weekend to see if that helps. I figure by now I've spent as much time trying everything else as I'd spend re-setting everything up after a FDR. GRRRR!

    I agree with YellowJacket start by moving all of your pictures and music files to a computer. Then, do yourself a favor by not re-installing all of your apps right away after that FDR. I just realized that after all of the work I did last Thursday that the other thing that I did differently this time is that I only installed the 4 apps that I used the most. I was just tired of messing with it, so I stopped. I still haven't installed the rest of the apps that I had on it. I have only charged my phone one time since 7am last Saturday. It is now at 50% after 21 hours and 13 minutes off charger. I'm finally getting the "advertised" battery life out of my Maxx. I'm happy now.

    I'm going to re-install my apps one by one over the next couple of days so I will be able to tell if one has a negative impact...
