    Stock (unrooted) Pro increasingly non-responsive

    My Pro is starting to drive me nuts. Everything freezes/force closes...text, web, email. SBF seems to solve the problem...for a couple of weeks, then it all happens again.

    There is a pattern: slower response to everything, more finicky touchscreen, then everything locks up.

    Even with all backup options in place (unrooted, so no Titanium...), setup still takes a couple of hours each time. This time, I stuck w/ stock launcher and uninstalled Launcher Pro just in case. Running unrooted Gingerbread OS (and love it)

    Just about to give up on this phone, which I should otherwise love, as it has all features I most value. Almost ready to part with physical keyboard for faster, more reliable device!

    Have you tried non gingerbread? Maybe that's the key. My wife has no issues with hers on Froyo still and believe you me, I hear about it when there are problems.

    Thought about that, but hated Froyo more, and had different buggy complaints about it.

    GB is faster, better battery, MUCH better navigation/editing features (no more chasing little round target). More appealing UI on all counts except for black-on-white settings menus).I keep discovering new things to love about GB. Would rather reset w/ GB than revert to Froyo...it is that much better.

    Without diminishing the frustration, I mostly just want to switch to Galaxy S II (whatever they decide to call it...whenever it comes...). Other factors in that equation - different thread for a different day. Bit of anticipatory rationalizing, perhaps.

    when you get a chance, provide a list of apps that you currently have on your Pro...many times there are some apps that just don't play nice with certain phones...I've run into that both on the OG Droid and the Droid Pro...

    I'm running rooted Gingerbread and really liking it, but you shouldn't be having the problems you are if you're running the stock OS....maybe something else causing your problem...

    Thanks...I will make a list. Have discovered a few of those already (No Lock; Date in Tray...some of the purported battery-savers (name???). Half of what is on here is the infamous bloatware...should not be causing problems, but would be so nice to get rid of it all!)

    I just re-read your original post...not sure how I got that you were on stock OS, but anyway since you are on GB too I'll see if I can help...

    I had a similar slow down and was having real problems when typing in any app..email, Handcent, Gmail, etc....would freeze up and or force close...

    I started to reload the TBH Gingerbread files (2-part), but was worried that the GB files might be set up as an upgrade and wouldn't allow me to reload over Gingerbread if they were looking for previous OS...Instead I simply went into recovery (bootstrap)and cleared cache and dalvik...

    Pro has been running spectacularly since simply wiping cache partition and dalvik cache....battery life on rooted GB has also been amazing....typically at 80% late in the afternoon with light to moderate use...

    Give that a try and see if it helps any...let me know if you have ????'s

    I am unrooted, and you are right that I am running stock OS.

    Can I do the things you suggest without being rooted (and not knowing exactly what a dalvik cache is)?

    I am not a superuser - but I can follow detailed directions (installed unrooted GB successfully using info from this forum).

    Would be so awesome to get the kind of (glitch-free!) performance you're getting!

    I am having a rough Monday...

    I need to leave early and get a drink....or 2

    I have yet to correctly read your posts...okay, you are not rooted, running Gingerbread OS on your Droid Pro...

    If you're not rooted, then it will be impossible for you to go into recovery and clear cache and dalvik...

    I'm thinking the only option "unrooted" would be to do a "factory reset" and then reload the unrooted Gingerbread again (if factory reset removes)...I don't think that unrooted, stock OS gives you any other option like clearing cache, etc....and a battery pull is not enough to help your problem...

    Only other possibility is to take a look at your apps to see if there is a conflict somewhere...

    Factory reset does not remove GB (thankfully!). Back to the question of apps that don't play nicely...I will post a list soon!
