    i agree. jelly bean blows, feels faster but nothing seems to work right like it did on ics. messages dont send for me or take forever when i have full service, wifi randomly turns off while looking on browser or facebook. cant say anything about battery life yet though.

    Wow, really?

    For a Moto update it's been aces for me.
    (I normally I flinch at a new update, but I install it any way.)

    I did a FDR and had a clean install.

    Haven't found anything ugly. The only unknown is webtop and I'll check that tomorrow.

    Don't know about the battery but it is snapper.

    I played with it a little more. The battery life so far seems to be better. Is anyone else having a hard time getting GPS to get your location faster? I was outside and it took it a while.

    True you can't make everyone happy, but from what they were saying it is supposed to be more customizable. You can disable the apps but it's still using up precious memory, though it's not really that much yet. Maybe if it was less locked down so we wouldn't have to root it...

    I have noticed the same thing that Wi-Fi would randomly turn off, really frustrating. Also, I don't have my speed dials anymore and can't figure out how to add them back.

    Strange I'm not getting any of these problems.

    Maybe re boot or factor reset?

    Mine's working great so far. Had one problem with my set up tho. I have my phone set to turn the camera on when I swipe down on the home screen. It would not work. I had to reset the swipe action a few times for it to work. Everything else seems to work. I'm not sure about using Chrome.

    Seems to me that most of the reported JB problems may be related to failure to FDR/RE-BOOT.
    I know it's a pain, but it's a necessary evil. Save your photos and Contact information, and it's easy.

    I did not do the FDR. I have never done one with this phone. How important is it that this be done?

    The 'smart guys' tell me it keeps from having future problems and irons out minor kinks from the installation.

    I see my phones as mini computers and believe they respond to some of the same ways.
    Example in simple terms... One older program is designed to make a right at the next intersection,
    but the newer programming says to go straight ahead. (The road is presumed to be finished)
    Conflicting information can cause slowing or erratic performance.

    I'm not smart enough to say they may be wrong. Got to take someone's word occasionally.
    These guys may all be full of it, but It only takes a little while to FDR, and if they are right,
    I saved myself future trouble.

    I'm liking it so far, especially playing around with Google Now. I'm now sure how functional it will be day to day, but I'm curious to see how the cards 'improve' through use.

    I'm really looking to see that the battery life improves. My MAXX came with GB and in less than a month updated to ICS. The battery life took a dive after that.

    Quick question, how can I add my toggles [wifi, gps, etc.] to the main pull-down menu?

    Thanks!
