    Hello all, I like many of you had a lot of problems with the OTA FroYo updates. My phone was super slow, flash was choppy as well as youtube, home icons taking forever to appear etc etc.

    Anyway, I was about to call verizon and complain about but I decided to do one last thing to try and fix it... factory reset. Now, I know this has been suggested many times before but I'm sure many users (such as myself) were worried about this. Let assure you that it is probably the best thing you can do! I did it and now my Moto Droid 1 is the phone it should be after FroYo! Phone response in super fast. webpages (even flash heavy ones) load up fast and video flash playback is awesome!

    Doing the factory reset fixed my phone. This post is intended for those people who don't root their phones and are not tech savvy and are having issues with their phone and are afraid to do the recommended factory reset. DO IT!

    Im so happy with my phone again!

    I'd like to add, that I came really close to returning my Droid 1 to Verizon becasuse all froyo roms (leaked, custom, and official) caused my Droid to lag, battery life was horrible, and the Droid would get really warm/hot, freeze and become unresponsive, despite always doing data wipes and factory resets.

    The problem with my Droid turned out to be a corrupted memory card. I put a spare micro sd card in the Droid and it was like night and day. I ended up reformatting my 16gb memory card, and now the froyo roms are running great, with very little heat, good battery life, and responsive screens.
