    How Can I Speed Up My Droid X

    Hey!

    My Droid X is starting to get a little sluggish. I have a lot of apps installed but I've done my best to keep them paired down as to not slow down the machine. But it still seems to be a bit jumpy and not always responsive. Do you guys know of an app or something I can do to make my Droid X faster and more nimble?

    Please let me know! Thanks!

    You can root it then install a custom kernel to overclock the CPU. Aside from that an occasional reboot helps as well.

    Get rid of all the widgets you can, and try a replacement launcher app like ADW or LauncherPro to get rid of most of the Blur. If you're rooted try overclocking the phone. However, at present you cannot use a custom kernel on your phone as any attempt would fail or trigger the eFuse, forcing an expensive reset at the Motorola factory.

    I have my phone rooted. The problem I don't want to kill my already sucky battery. The restarts help. Sometimes my phone just gives up and does it itself. Annoying but I guess it needs it.

    Try doing a power cycle to help with the battery. You do this by letting the battery run down till it powers off, then charging it up all the way up to full without interruption.

    Are you on stock? Have you thought of flashing a custom ROM? There's a couple good ROMS for the X that'll give you good battery life.

    That's a good idea, but I really don't want to risk not getting the next 2.4 update. Will this cause it?

    No worries, once you root you can make a stock backup which you can restore before taking an OTA update. There's also the "maderstcok" zip file you can flash to get back to complete stock. Check out the DX forums link I posted above... all the info you need is there.
    Lots to read over there and post any questions that you may have, and we'll help you along the way.

    Worst case scenario? There will be SBF files that you can use to put it all back for whatever you need.

    Use a brightness wiget. turn the screen all the way down and only turn it up when you need to. ROOT/install Jrummy's OC (there are others, this one is my fav.) then try different ultra low volt and low volt settings. I get 15 to 16hrs with moderate use and still at 40%. Keep in mind every phone overclocks differently dont just use the same settings some one else has, you have to try different settings for a day or two and see how your phone behaves. Also keep in mind that while this is called overclocking, you can actually run your phone at the stock speed just at a lower voltage (underclocking)
