    It *should* update to the new market on it's own.

    If it doesn't you can always try going to application management, clearing the data and cache for market, force stop it and reboot. It should upgrade after a few minutes.

    Something in one of these is stopping calender from adding a new event. If anyone figures out which one, let me know please.

    So far this is the only thing broken from freezing all of the above I can find.

    Was experience a similar problem, not to the extremes others seem to be, but there was definitely lag when scrolling and it took a bit for the lock screen to appear when unlocking. Pretty much fixed it from reading this thread.

    Use Gingerbreak to root it then download Bloat Remover. Check online for things that are ok to freeze and do it. Obviously don't freeze it if you use it. However once I did this I haven't had a single problem and this thing is blazingly fast. Like someone else said, I think it's mostly the "social" apps like flickr, twitter, myspace etc that sync everytime you unlock your phone. So I froze all of these and no problems since.

    For reassurance, you can freeze these processes and still use those programs. Just dl an app specific to whatever it is and you're good to do. Also this is using Go Launcher Ex with a multitude of customized everything.

    To jhude, maybe try defrosting one of the sync options? Could be trying to sync to google calendar or something and throwing it off.

    dont want to start a new thread on this, but is anyone experiencing worse 3g speeds? My OG Droid streamed and had better reception than my x2. I'm hoping the answer is that the network has been slow altogether recently. My best example is Amazon Cloud. Never had a problem with my og droid, now i get network error constantly.

    I get better reception on my X than my X2. In general, about a bar better where ever I am. Also, since making the changes with V6 Supercharger, I haven't had a single redraw on LP. That definitely made all the difference in the world. I used setting 6 (Balanced 2).

    Thank you so much for this post, juhde. I was having problems with freezing and/or locking. After freezing most of these apps the phone is much better. I can only hope this phone will mature as time goes on and I'll be even more happy with it down the road.

    does anyone know how to set the option to control your sound when the phone is locked? My volume buttons don't work when phone is locked and i think i had to set it on my og droid but don't remember where to go

    The Media Volume buttons work just fine on mine with the screen locked. It has to be on the lock screen though, not off like my Eris could.


    This phone is really pushing me. I was using an Incredible 2 and loved it, almost 0 problems from Day 1 and lightning fast. I was psyched for the Droid X2 so used my 14 day return to get one of those instead since I game a lot and loved the dual core.

    The lag still comes in spurts though. It'll show it's ugly face then disappear for awhile. I KNOW it's not the phone's fault. The gingerbreak hack and freezing some bloat helped tremendously, but I still feel like the software is holding the phone back.

    They better get this under control. Or else I'll never even consider buying Motorola again.
