Well I had my Motorola Droid Bionic for nearly 2 years and recently Verizon updates have really slowed down my phone: It will randomly freeze, the keyboard freezes then goes crazy, my browser will freeze on me for upwards of 20 seconds, my camera's response time has slowed down and the phone will randomly zoom while scrolling through webpages. Reading on the issue has me overwhelmed and so many solutions exist that I don't know what to do or where to start, I am afraid of just trying things because I cannot afford to brick my phone at the moment. Right now I just tried something simple recommended by these forums, Clean Master. I will have to use my phone for awhile and see if it has an effect on the issue. I am also considering rooting the phone but I avoided that option since I don't know anything about the process, I have fears that I will brick it and I am not sure what to do after rooting the phone? Do I have to install a new operating system or what? I saw a YouTube tutorial on doing it which seemed simple but a lot of recent comments said that process/software doesn't work anymore, maybe they changed the software since the video? I don't know, my phone is running Android Version 4.1.2 which is the latest version I believe. I really want to get this phone working like it did in the pass because I have unlimited data and Verizon isn't giving upgrades to those who have it now, I would have to play musical chairs with other phones on my line to get the upgrade and I don't want to do that now. I get a feeling the software is slow on purpose to force people into a newer phone, I don't blame Motorola for that just Verizon. I love my phone and the only thing I wish was better (Other than the Verizon software) was the battery and I would buy an extended life battery once I get this issue solved. So what do you guys recommend? Also will these options stop any future Verizon updates? I don't want to be harassed every 12 hours to install their botched upgrades. So please help me navigate my options, thanks.
