    I know this sounds nuts, but every time I have rooted a Bionic from factory (4 times now) my wifi signal in my house gets weaker, 3g stumbles more often, screen transitions get laggy, and the overall feel is just off. Especially when I run the SQlite app for hot spot access. Is anyone else having these issues?

    You're not removing bloatware are you? Need to freeze it, not remove it.

    Could be happen the same way with my Droid X every time I put a custom room it seem to break the phone instead of making it better

    Interesting, I seem to have experienced the opposite result? After I rooted, my Bionic "felt" better, not worse? And I haven't even really removed any bloat to speak of yet? I also rooted my previous phone, my Droid X, and cant say I noticed any change then either, good or bad?

    I rooted my Bionic and did not notice any difference as far as performance goes. I did not install a custom ROM or anything, just some apps that need root. I froze some bloat as well.

    After I recently rooted and froze most of the bloatware I have been getting better battery life per charge. I didn't notice any performance hits. Everything seems to run as smoothly as before rooting?
