Okay, what I would like to do, is backup my text messages and contacts, then erase my internal and SD card memory and start over with a 'base' installation of whatever the latest version of the standard verizon OS is. Right now I am running on System Version: 6.16.217XT894.verizon.en.us, which is I think Android 4.0.4? I have safestrap 3.05 installed, and titanium backup, and since whenever I did this I've installed and uninstalled so many things that my phone is just not running well at all. So, I want to start over as much as I can. I've tried just updating to the last version, but of course it fails because ages ago I froze a bunch of the bloatware verizon sticks on here. I tried uninstalling most of the apps on my phone that I've added, games and stupid stuff, but it doesn't seem to help with the slowdown and nonresponsiveness. All I really use my phone for anymore is actual phone stuff, the internet, and as a wifi hotspot (using wifi tether), and since I want to use it as a hotspot, I know I have to keep root. Hah. 'Bloatware' is a recognized word on here. Nice. Is there any guide to how I can do all this? Or...multiple guides I can piece together? I haven't done anything fancy with my phone in forever so I'm not really sure where to even start.
