    So now that I have it rooted, what can I do to make it run good again? The damn thing is sooooo slow; - Just want it to be responsive, dosn't have to be super charged, just good

    Any suggestions?

    There's a good thread talking about much of what you're experiencing.... many have offered some "tricks"... some work, some not so much. I love my bionic, but I think it is just one of those phones that get hinkey over a period of time. My solution is to factory reset, install what I want, setup everything the way I like it, then do a safestrap backup... when it starts to slow down again, I restore the backup...Here is that link: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/233682-my-bionic-gets-slower-slower.html. If you find something that "fixes" the "slow" :) let me know.

    You can usually get a little speed bump by going into recovery and clearing cache. It won't be an amazing difference, but it's noticeable.

    Try using a rom. My bionic was never as slow as what your describing but it definitely feels smother and more responsive since using one.

    I have safestrap 3.5 installed and just yesterday was slower then crap, went into recovery and wiped cache and dalvick. Sped this right back up. Didn't lose a thing either

    RUNNING the latest and greatest ICS 246.

    I'd run a rom if you have Safestrap installed. Icarus HD 1.7.2 is running fast and smooth on my Bionic.

    Icarus was always sluggish for me, but I did like the look of it.

    I'm on Icarus Stripped. Not sure if that matters.

    everyone has different experiences with battery life, too many factors to compare, signal strength, running apps, widgets, etc, etc.

    I am amazed when people throw out claims like 2+ days without needing to charge. During those 2 days how much did you actually use your phone? Did you play games? Text? Stream video?

    I have never been able to go much more than a day without needing to charge my phone, regardless of the rom I was using at the time.

    I'll have to redo the usage. I think total screen on time was around 6 hours, about 50 texts, 50 or so emails, an hour or so on calls, a little surfing, no gaming, no facebook or any other social media software on my phone and wifi from 6pm to 6am with data turned off manually. Screen at 19%. Overall, I'm very happy with this rom. I can go almost the whole weekend without any issues.
