    Any problems that you have noticed with the latest update that makes you want to go back??

    I have gone back to 2.26.60 for now....

    My Pro began locking up at different times. Not for long periods of time but more like 4-12 seconds or so each time at random times.

    Another problem post-update is random reboots...twice for me.

    Battery is not as good as it was with 2.26.60...

    Lots of static on in coming calls, taking phone to verizon today to see if they can fix it. If not I'll have to roll it back also, which I don't want to do because exchange works for once.

    So far it's been perfect for me.

    Before the update - not so much.

    Have had random reboots both before and after update. Have super-extended Mugen 3400mAhz, but phone can't Lread' it, thus phone shuts itself off anyway... Motorola extended is better (??).

    Hangups... at times, much more laggy than before update. Have noticed more flukey negative things than improvements. Most frustrated my battery stuff...

    Exchange has been better, but my battery was already good, so I can't report on that.

    Updated last Saturday. Phone runs really HOT now and battery only lasts 3-4 hours on stand-by. How do you go back to the previous build?

    Mine is definitely running better with the latest update. Crisper, faster and less crashes. I have to believe that lots of people have crashes and problems because of some goofy downloaded apps.

    I had to remove a bunch over the course of the past few months to restore reliability.

    Now with the update, and an extended battery, plus judicious additions of a few (only a few) apps, its one of the best phones I've ever had.

    Nanohead,

    Are you unrooted? If so, do you use stock launcher or other? I have been on similar path...uninstalling apps, trying to pare down for improved performance. Biggest ongoing bug for me is battery life/ charging. Still tweaking that.

    Using LauncherPro now, but contemplating return to stock if that is smoother/ better since update.

    I'm going the route of deleting unnecessary apps. One thing I have noticed is the phone heating up seems somewhat random. Some days it's very hot, some days just warm. But since the update it's always been warmer than usual.

    Deleted several apps, unrooted and still having the same problems. Oh, and I can't snyc with my Exchange server anymore ("Connection issue").
    This is a disaster

    Mine was slow as slow gets right after the update. I bit the bullet and did a factory reset and it runs quick and smooth for the most part.

    Is there a post that tells how to do a factory-reset? I'd do it right now - but, you guessed it, I need to recharge first

    Go into settings: privacy. Option for factory data reset is in there.

    If you applied the update while your phone was rooted, you'll probably have to do a SBF flash in addition to a factory reset in order to get everything running smoothly. When the update is applied properly, everything runs so much better on the phone. It's finally just about to where it should have been upon release.

    battery life is well. i think it was rocket girl who asked about the motorola extended battery. i recommend it. having the inability to read a battery is frustration galore. still having issues with random reboots since the updates. i run launcherpro and get good results with movement through screens. still wish for a truly random shuffle with any music player but doesn't seem like the update hit there. exchange is very good with touchdown. sometimes my phone receives it before my desktop, which is networked to the server at work. that's something. sorry for the mind dump, but whatever.

    Rather than continue to pull my hair out, I followed kjjb0204's lead and did a factory reset. Phone was unrooted when the update hit so I didn't need to bother with sbf. Although I expexted major pain with the reset, I had used the VZ backup and all my apps came back. I can snyc with my office Exchange server without a problem. Battery life seems to be better (only losing 10-15%/hour rather than 20-25% before) with the std. Motorola battery. Although it sounds rather harsh, I recommend the factory reset if all other remedies fail.

    Yep, that was me. Getting better results w/ Motorola extended battery (@15-is hrs) than with 3400mhAz Mugen extended battery (shows 12-hr life but phone does low power shutdown even sooner than that. Wondering whether I could have gotten a counterfeit Mugen (says it is 'for Driod Pro' rather than Droid Pro.). Seems like expensive garbage so far to me!!!! On business trip now, with 3 batteries (Motorola stock: Motorola extendedb Mugen) and 2 chargers. swapping at least once during the day. Grrrrrr...
