    Im sorry if this has been asked already (cant find any topics similar) but is there a way to revert back to 2.1 from 2.2?

    or is there a way to at least speed up the phone to feel more responsive? Ever since the 2.2 update, the phone just doesnt seem to respond to any commands, it just feels too slow to do anything. Sometimes a call comes in and the phone will just black out and i end up unable to answer the phone. thats just one of my problems.

    Any ideas or help?

    The Froyo 2.2 update overclocked the CPU from 550MHZ to 800MHZ Stock so it is strange you describe your device as "slow", do you have any Task Killers installed...they do not play nice with Froyo and can slow down performance greatly

    Hmmm now that you mentioned the Task Killers slowing down the phone... How does that work? =/

    i use Advanced Task Killer Free thinking itll conserve some battery life if i end tasks.

    Would uninstalling ATK improve my Droid phone speed?

    I also have an Anti-Virus on my phone... does that also slow my phone down?

    Yes, get rid of both of those ASAP. The Anti-Virus is useless since there are no known Android viruses and the task killer kills needed tasks which the OS must then restart killing your battery and slowing down your phone.

    Task killers are not the way to address battery life issues. There are a lot of threads out there for analyzing usage and making adjustments to improve battery life.
