    Before this weekend I was still on the previous droid OS. (froyo? sorry not a droid guru) Sunday afternoon I get a pop up saying there is a software update but I hit the install later option since my phone was rooted with Z4 and I wanted to check up on it first. Monday morning I ask my wife if she has got the notice and she hadnt, told her I wanted to check forum since hers ia rooted also and we use wireless teather. Not 30 minutes later, after I had left for work, she tells me the update popped up and she installed it, I wanted to throttle her!

    Well I looked on forum, another did the same thing and had to use Pete's rooting since Z4 no longer worked so I thought whay the heck I guess I will allow it also. Now my phone is complete crap! I can get no settings to open, my gallery wont open, everything has crazy long delays when using keyboard. I called Verizon and they say all I can do is a hard reset that will wipe my phone. He tells me I now have GB which did not make me happy.

    As stated above I am not a droid guru and learning as I go. I have posts about different ROMs and such. Do these increase performance of the phones? Is there something I should be doing to remedy all these flaws I am having with my phone? The verizon idiot was absolutely no help and so came looking to the real experts for some advice.

    Thanks in advance,

    Matthew

    its what they call a Summation Briefcase File. it basically places ur phone back to "out of the box" condition. Do u have an SPR or SPRecovery? like a back up file?

    If it was something I had to do manually then no. I guess I should got a how to. I havent even started yet and already confused. I can put together the skeletal structure of an F-35 plane from CAD but cant work my phone. How sad is that?

    Im in the same box as this guy/wife. My update came Sunday night and I accepted :( . I only use my wireless teether at work so I didn't notice it wouldn't work till now (back at work ). Because I work long 16hr shifts I catch the wireless off my phone on my laptop so I can surf the web and play games. I would like to re-root my phone, but my #1 objective is to get my wireless teether back :( ... I previously used Z4Root as well

    I backed up my important files that I want to keep. Not sure how to save contacts to be honest. I think I had seen some sort of backup app that I could get, going to search for that and see if I can do it that way.

    Also, yesterday I got slammed with like 5 new automatic updates that I was not allowed to choose to install or not, including one to track data usage, not real happy about that either.
