    Improve your phone - tips summary (03/24/2011)

    I've read a lot of discussions and forums for improving performance e battery, and so i've done a summary for me and you..
    Probably your stocks apps will not function... But you can defreeze.
    Copy your /system/app to your sd or Pc
    Or backup your system and data with Droid 2 Bootstrapper

    1) Download, install and execute Z4root (you must enable debug usb). For rooting your phone...
    2) Download, install and execute Titanium Backup
    3) Freeze with Titanium Backup:

    Before you must Install launcher pro or adw...or another home replacement...! Keep away from motoblur...
    I suggest also wireless tether for hotspot

    Code:
    3G Mobile Hotspot 2.2.1
    Amazon MP3
    Backup Assistant 1.0
    Backup Assistant 2.2.1
    Battery Manager 1.1
    City ID 1.0.30
    com.motorola.photowidget 2.2.1
    Files 2.2.1
    Global Unplug 1.0
    Help Center 2.2.1
    InPocket 2.2.1
    MediaShare 1.0.0
    Messages 2.2.1
    Messaging 2.2.1
    News 2.2.1
    NFS Shift 1.0
    Print to Retail 1.0
    Quick Contact 2.2.1
    Skype mobile 1.0.0.2
    Social Messaging 2.2.1
    Social Messaging Service 2.2.1
    Social Networking 2.2.1
    Social Sharing 2.2.1
    Social Status 2.2.1
    Sticky Note 2.2.1
    Sync Service 1.5.7
    Task Manager 1.0
    Toggle Widgets 2.2.1
    Universal Inbox 2.2.1
    Voice Commands
    Voicemail 1.1
    VZ Navigator
    Weather 2.2.1
    Yahoo Contacts 2.2.1
    I'v also disabled dlna and other minor things
    com.motorola.hiddenmenu
    com.nuance.android...
    com.android.setupwizard
    contactsunconnected
    data manager
    data manager service
    desk home
    email 2.2
    manage sim card
    mediashare
    mediasync
    messaging 2.2
    ms exchange service
    print to retail
    
    4) If you don't have any issues move with rootexplorer these file from /system/app to /data/app (***.apk and ***.odex), reboot and you can do a normal uninstall (the uninstaller of titanium backup is not so good...)

    5) Download, install and execute autostarts: Disable from autorun all your installed apps (ebay, paypal, fring...etc...etc..)
    6) Then with autostarts Disable also all widgets that you don't use
    7) Download and install setcpu:
    My settings: if Battery >100%, the cpu is 300mhz-800mhz, if battery >80, the cpu is 300-1000, if batery >30, the cpu is 300-800, if battery >20 the cpu is 300-600.
    When screen off the cpu is 300-600
    I use these settings because in the first time of my day (from 7.00 to 14.00) I don't use so much my "media" phone, only for the calls and sms (10/20 calls and 5/10 sms), then..
    8) Set your mobile to cdma or gsm/umts NO Global, if possible the best is only gsm
    9) I've deleted bootanimation.zip and droid.ogg (/system/media/) (the sound and animation for the boot). You can also put your bootanimation.zip..
    10) Set brightness to automatic
    11) Delete batterystats.bin:

    "Battery recalibration (3/4 days for correct callibration, but these steps only one time)
    If you're experiencing higher than normal battery drain, try the following:
    1. Charge the phone to full battery; power off and let it keep charging until the light is green.
    2. Delete
    /data/system/batterystats.bin with rootexplorer
    3. Reboot the phone and use it normally, but don't charge until it shuts off.
    4. Recharge the phone completely and then use as you normally would."


    12) Clean your dalvik-cache.
    13) Reboot (the first reboot is long, because your phone recreates dalvik.cache)

    With these settings i can use my phone for about 20 hours...



    I'm waiting for:
    http://www.mugen-power-batteries.com...driod-pro.html

    Keep attention! Use at yours risks...
    Sorry for my English, please correct me, if you see any grammatical errors... !!
    Do you have other suggestions.....?
    If I give you a my clean system.img from droid 2 bootstrap backup, can you install?

    I'm guessing you are using many 3rd party replacement apps for email, sms, voice commands, etc. Many of the apps you recommend freezing are absolutely necessary for some of the core, stock apps to function.

    Ok, but you should probably make people aware that by doing this, their stock sms, stock email, stock voicemail, etc. will not function.

    Ok, I might be thinking of something else, but I remember freezing the messages and messaging apps and my sms didn't work. As soon as I unfroze, it worked again.

    I think something similar happened to me as well - don't remmber.

    I'll try your tips dettofatto.

    20 hours with standard battery and your config is VERY impressive...it looks like you made it stock android as much as you could.

    Worth a try.

    Yes... I think that you should try... Only for trying... disable only the app that you want, but see the difference... you'll see also more speed...

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH - your advice is greatly appreciated :)

    What's the difference between GSM and UMTS?

    I'm here in the UK with T-mobile. Should I select GSM only or GSM/UMTS?

    My data downloads speeds are generally good - 1 mb to 1.7 mb per/sec

    I can get 24 hours + easily with a pro...and I don't have to freeze a thing. 3 screens, 4 3rd party widgets and 6 (blur) quick contacts widgets running. I don't understand how some people are getting such poor performance from their batteries.
