    Do not do it!!! .232 made my phone great. .246 ruined it. Granted, this isnt happening to everyone, but why risk it.

    because I don't like waiting 5 seconds for a call to go through after I press the dial button... or texts and apps to lag... not to mention some home screen redraws(stock)

    Sure. Fxz to 246 and you won't lose any data.

    While the good news is that those animation settings have definitely improved "functional" performance, it has not done anything for the (poor) "battery" performance! :-(

    It's been real.

    It's been fun.

    But I wouldn't say its been real fun.
    On what grounds did they let you get a Maxx?

    They offered a RAZR, galaxy, and some HTC thing. I made the argument that i needed to stick with Motorola because of all my Accessories. I also have and need an extended battery for my bionic, and the battery on the RAZR would not be sufficient.

    I also stayed firm, but polite, the entire time. Took a few calls, and I had a legitimate reason (the audio hiss)

    This has a been a chronic problem for me as well. After a lot of experimentation I've got my phone in a tolerable condition. I tried a bunch of different combinations of settings and in the end I settled on both "animation scale" settings at .5x. Also, I switched back and forth between GO and Nova (Prime) launchers, and found that Nova is not as laggy.

    What I found particularly useful, although I cannot confirm the correlation/causation factor, was to do a cache wipe in recovery and phone reboot each time I made a change. When it starts to get a little laggy I'll do another cache wipe.

    Whatever happens, I do not want to re-install and I don't want to do another factory data reset. I did an FDR right after updating via the HoB and I'd rather not go through that again.

    My bionic is also slow and laggy after upgrading to ics 246. Would some custom rom potentially help?

    Yep. Custom ROMs have helped me big time. I recommend blurry max for performance. Eclipse for best battery life. And, Icarus for RAZR circle widget. Are you rooted?

    Yep, I'm rooted and have used Rsdlite before to fxz .246. But I've never installed a custom rom before. I'm totally willing to do it if it can help performance.
