    New OS is garbage.

    Have a Droid 2.3.3 and recently added system update 4.5.A955.Verizon.en.US. Detest the darkened screen slowed my droid down, and several apps (most notably Inotia 3) give me a black screen and no longer work. Also WiFi tether seems to be blocked. Would like to uninstall the system update, is this possible?

    Where on this website will someone find the Stock Rom - and a step by step instruction on how to install it -
    theres a bunch of custom roms ..
    but not really helpful for those whom just want the previous stock rom.

    I'm not sure exactly what this means, but I think it has something to do with lord of the rings...

    I would suggest that you have a bad install of the update and/or some apps that don't work well with the update. The first thing I would is a Factory Hard Reset and if that doesn't totally fix your issues, start taking off the offending apps and see if your phone does better. Then reinstall the apps and see if the crap comes back. If so, remove those apps as they need to be updated to work with the new os version. Try other apps that do the same job. Good luck.

    Even after doing a clean install and hard reset, the new OS is still garbage. Motorola really dropped the ball on the D2, even before it was released.

    Perhaps you need to take your phone to the store and ask them to SBF it for you. My wife has a D2 and it is the bomb compared to my D2G. Even on Froyo, she could use the heck out of it for work all day and still have battery left. On GB it is running pretty much the same. And I have my D2G to a state that I can live with by buying Gorilla Gadgets Battery, rooting, SetCPU, GB. Maybe yours has a hardware issue, or as stated above some apps are not playing nicely with your phone.

    Sorry to hear you're having problems... GB runs great on my D2. I'm still rocking the MonsterGB Leak - been looking for a compelling reason to load up the official OTA, but as the saying goes "if it ain't broke..."

    If a factory reset fails, definitely take it down to the VZW store and see if they can SBF if. Maybe something tiny was corrupted on the initial download/install?
