    Hey guys. I need some help. Things have been just fine for my rooted droidx on .602. But i would say in the last month or so my phone has gotten really laggy taking many seconds for screens to change or make phone at calls or txts. Its getting really annoying
    I was wondering what the best method is to do to rid my phone of these problems. I dont need to stay rooted other than the fact i like to back up my apps. Im not afraid of changing versions of updates, but I do enjoy what im using now. Should i just do a reset of data or sbf and start all over again. I just want the spunk back in my phone. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried wiping cache partition in either stock or clockwork recovery? If not i would give that a try first before going further.

    You can try taking the OTA update. Protect root using vodoo root keeper from the play store. It worked for me when I went from .605 to .621. After taking the update, I just ran the app and restored root without any problems.

    My phone has been kinda slow and freezing up a bit lately too. Facebook and a few other apps take a while to load/refresh. I just flashed CM9 on my phone again today so it's running great except for battery life sucks. That's why I went back to stock before.

    You can try backing everything up with TB, doing a nandroid and wiping data and cache in recovery. I don't think a sbf will help much but I can't say for sure.

    One good thing I noticed when I took the .621 update, I didn't have any force closes and everything ran smooth for a while. After apps had updates, things went down hill. My phone would freeze, apps would be slow to load and even the dialer would be slow to load.

    It's probably Verizon's way of making us get new phones so they can rob us of our unlimited data.

    FWIW the official facebook app has been having issues as of late. Which has been affecting some phones.

    I am stock and have been having a few of the same problems. The last update fixed the random resets, but now I have data drops even though I am in a strong 3G area (the signal indicator will turn white, switching to airplane mode and back does nothing...need to turn phone on and off, which takes a while lately).

    First thing you can try is dialing *228 and choose option 2 if ya haven't done that yet and see if your reception gets better.

    You can try a cache partition wipe and see if that helps with your phone being slow (laggy). Since your on stock gingerbread you'll just wipe cache in stock recovery. It's quick and simple and don't worry it won't change anything on your phone. Here's a thread link that explains how it's done http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-tech-support/195284-wipe-cache.html

    Yeah i had to wipe out everything and start from scratch bc of lag - using miui which is a great rom imho.. I tend to junk up the phone with pointless apps so a thorough wipe every few months takes care of any weirdnesses..

    Wouldn't uninstalling those pointless apps suffice? Or do they leave remnants behind after uninstalling them (like Windows does in the Registry)?

    Sometimes. But when I bring it to its knees, nuking it works best.
