Thanks Hook. I will look up how to do that and give it a shot. I'd be fine w/waiting until a fix came out, but i haven't heard any estimations as to when/if that's happening.
I have the droid x and am still waiting for the upgrade to froyo. Can anybody tell me if there is any difference between the leaked version and the official version? Also when the official version is coming out?
Without going into great lengths as I have on other threads.....
suffice to say I have not done a factory reset.
1. Getting rid of Handcent and
2. turning my taskkiller off
3. Installing "app 2 sd" and using it.
4. installed chompsms to replace handcent.
5. Pulling battery with a restart "did it just for grins"
My phone dances with glee like it did when I first bought it!
worked for me!

Update on battery life.
I removed ATK but am still using JuiceDefender because the first attempt with no 3rd party management had the battery almost dead by lunchtime. Today with 5 hours of I Heart Radio, 10 minutes of internet surfing, occasional e-mail checking, no text or anything else I am at 30% battery remaining. Systems page shows 8:15 Up time, 5:14 Awake time, Cell Standby 28%, Android System 27%, Phone Idle 25%, Display 7%, Mediaserver 6%, Voice Calls 3%, Dialer (???) 2%, iheartradio 2%.
This is with the Verizon extended battery (2150 mAh) on a full charge overnight. I plan to try the bump charge method this evening but am still very unhappy with battery life - it would be dead and on the charger now if I had used the web or more e-mail.
Still have a hard time believing that all the bloatware and such is unrelated to the performance and battery life issues.
The other thing that I have noticed is that I know have a 3rd drive on the phone when viewing in Windows Explorer called CD Drive (G Verizon Mobile. I don't know if this was part of the update or if it was created when I clicked on the 'My Verizon Mobil' ap. Anyone know what this drive is used for?

sounds like something isnt letting your phone sleep. may be a rogue app keeping it awake. 5 hours plus of awake time with 8 hours total uptime seems like either you are in fact using the hell out of your phone or something is keeping it awake
I got the Froyo update and it was killing my battery hella fast too. I rooted and am now running Cyanogen 6.0 and my battery lasts way longer. My question is how come beautiful widgets isn't showing up? I have it in my app drawer but when I long press the home screen, and look through widgets it doesn't show up. Like I said, I'm running Cyanogen 6.0.
I find it wierd that Cell Standby and Phone Idle consume so much. I was running a Live Wallpaper (Magic Smoke) but switched to a static wallpaper this morning and results are as follows:
Battery page shows 4:32 since unplugged, 2:51 Awake, 70% remaining. Cell Standby 31%, Android System 29%, Phone Idle 27% (that is 87% of battery consumption), with Mediaserver 6%, display 5%, and Dialer 2%.
I listened to MP3's for less than hour and have 2.5 hours on iheartradio, no calls, no texts, 5 minutes on the web, and have checked e-mail 3 times.
I just don't get it because there were reports that on 2.1 people were seeing 9 hours on the basic battery but my battery life is unacceptable since I am not hammering the device - I would understand if I was beating it up.
Really disappointed with battery life - everything else is great.
