DROID RAZR Utility XT912 Jellybean -- Windows + Mac + Linux (All In One!)
I wasn't patient enough to see if the 2 FDRs resolved it or not. It may have but reflashed anyway just to make sure it wasn't something on the OTA OS I had in my phone..then I reestablished root using the utility. Option 1 and 3.
So after going through all of this media trouble and getting it fixed, last night my phone really took a turn for the worse! 25% random battery drops, and
My screen randomly flashes whenever it feels necessary. So phone still works I don't want to lose unlimited data and I really don't want to upgrade.
Well one of the kids phones is due for upgrade so I know I can transfer that to my phone. So I figured I'd sleep on it and due a meter calibration and see how that goes. Well I turned it on this morning and took my son to the pro football hall of fame. Phone had 2 random battery drops in 4 hours and just about every time I checked for calls or texts the screen was flashing. So on the way home I stopped by Verizon and walked in with full intentions of getting a Maxx hd. I told the representative my problems, and he said your warranty just expired 20 days ago let me see what I can do. I just thought I'm screwed! He came back and told me I could pay 7 dollars a month and keep it under the manufacturer warranty! So I'm doing that keeping unlimited data and I should have a replacement tomorrow! I have never had this good of an experience with Verizon and just thought I would share it! My phone still works but it's on its last leg. If it was a car it would have 500000 miles on it. This experience today has given me a whole new perspective on Verizon.

Wow you got a good deal there! Wonder what went sour? Don't you wonder sometimes what goes berzerk in these devices that renders them unuseable?
On the wifi on all the time, someone on the Moto forum just decided to set a smart action to keep wifi off. If he wanted to connect to wifi, he just turned off the smart action.
So far so good on mine. Not doing anything ignorant. Hope I didn't just jinx it.
4 hours out of 21...showing 0.1% of power. I know I had a couple days where mine was up again too and I found an app that keeps it awake after I close it. Its a stupid solitaire game. I uninstalled it, cleared the cache and reinstalled but after I open the app, the phone remains awake for a couple hours after I close it. So I figure on days when I won't have access to a charger I won't use it. I know if I watch videos or do streaming music my awake time is higher. But you are more than easily making it thru the day with over half the battery left. Looks pretty good to me. You may have an app that is doing like the solitaire game does to mine. I actually have two on here - one does not keep the phone awake at all and the other acts stupid. Are you close to your pre-JB battery time?

On Gsam tap the app usage line, then on the next screen, tap the little gray quarter arrow that sits kind of under the time. Choose View Time Held Awake and it will show you what is keeping it up. Usually mediaserver lol. I found my app by trial and error. I noticed any time I played the game, when I looked at the awake time it was always higher than days when I didn't bother to play it. So tested that out yesterday and yep that is the app. Now if I reboot the phone, the app won't keep it awake anymore but who wants to reboot all the time.
