    Just root your phone. Then you won't have to worry about a battery update. I rooted last week and my battery life is phenomenal now that I am running SetCPU.

    You can't brick it. The bootloader is locked.

    I'm not sure about that, but the instructional video I found online (youtube: droid 4 root) was so easy to follow and I encountered zero issues during the process. Totally worth the risk, in my opinion.

    You might be thinking of the RAZR. It was re-released as the RAZR MAXX with NO difference at all except a bigger 3.3 amp battery. Or maybe you mean that there was an early OTA for the D3 that idk about that addressed battery life.

    Either way, this post relates to your question:

    I got my Droid 4 a couple of days ago. It's my first smartphone, so I've been playing with it a lot more than I expect to once I get over the initial novelty. I've been getting about 24 hours per full charge without really messing with any settings. After all the complaints I read on the forum, this is much better than I expected.

    Get the paid version of titanium backup pro and read the list of bloatware apps to freeze and get juice defender to really eek out that last bit and you'll be good to go!
    Also rooting your phone and underclocking can help tremendously.

    It can be bricked with the bootloader being locked.. Since it's locked, it probably increases the chances of bricks due to modding methods being confusing because of the workarounds. However it is very easy to root. And there are no SBF or fastboot files to possibly fix the brick if it were to occur, so the choice is yours.

    Rooting itself cannot brick your phone. Their is a droid 4 utility available from mattlgroff (or something like that) that does it in less than 2min. Just make sure you have a good amount of charge on your phone so it doesn't die in the process. The only way you are going to brick it is by freezing vital system apps or flashing roms either 1) not meant for the D4
    2) flashing outside the safety of safestrap or
    3) not following the directions given in the op of whatever hack/mod you are attempting.
    I would suggest that someone that has never flashed a rom or is new to android and moto phones especially avoid doing anything beyond rooting until the fastboot files get leaked to us. Something else to remember is that until we have a deodexed stock rom that you avoid changing any of your icons via rom toolbox or any other means as that will also cause some issues.

    As far as the battery is concerned i have been running now for 15hrs on rooted stock with a few of the bloat apps frozen and still have 30% left. I am very impressed with battery life so far.

    Agreed. Some of the comments I've read on this board led me to believe I'd get about 9 hours for a full charge... but like I said, I've been averaging 24.

    Have you ever went to root your phone via a Windows/Mac/Linux Utility and your computer or electricity turn off without notice during the process? I haven't and I'm sure a large majority of rooters also haven't experienced it, including yourself. So saying rooting can't brick a phone is misleading. If you wanna test it to prove yourself right, go ahead lol, but I'm sure you wouldn't.

    I bought D4 on the first day it was available, since it was my birthday. My D4 is not rooted, since I, too, am relatively sure that I would screw up the whole thing. That being said, I'm coming off a Droid2 Global, and I am impressed with battery life so far on the D4. I have most things turned as low as possible, including the video screen. I use my phone frequently throughout the day & when I play Angry Birds, I make sure the phone is charging or fully charged. AB will eat battery life like nothing else I've seen. Just sucks it right out.

    I had 2 extra batteries for the D2 & would regularly go thru 2 fully charged batteries in a day. For the D4, I bought a couple of external batteries to give me a little charge after a long day, but I rarely have to use them.

    Just wait till you get 4g in your area. Battery time will be cut by half or more. We switched back to 3g.

    4g on the d4 is fast and short lived unless you have it plugged in all the time.
