Default LG Esteem takes forever to boot

I have zvb root on my phone (No custom rom, just root), and whenever I turn my phone off and back on, it takes like 5 minutes to boot up. it sits at the 'metroPCS' screen (black screen, white text), for about 3 minutes before it finally loads up.

Me and my phone both have the same phone, and both rooted the same way, and have the same problem on both phones. Any fix for it? I don't remember it ever taking this long to boot up unrooted.

Also, does anyone know when these phones are going to at least get ICS? I mean, seriously, jellybean is out now and we still have gingerbread. It's the equivalent of having windows 98 or 2000 right now.

i dont have anything on my phone other than default. All I did was zvb root it and that's it. No custom roms, no custom apps, etc. I haven't even used root on my phone since i've gotten in, I could probably go back to stock if I still had the stock image for it. If I download the LG update drivers and app and update to zvd, will it restore me to original with zvd, or will it mess up since i have a rooted system?

hmm, im not usually too big on themes, I prefer to stay stock usually. I only rooted it to have it rooted, but I may be going back to stock and see if it helps bootup time.

I'm also on ZVB, phone takes about a minute before it boots up. Do you have a lot of programs installed?

The only way to get it back original stock with no root privileges is you need to update your phone to zvd using LG update tool, let us know if you need help thx.. and good luck

Its not the phone or the rom its something wrong with cwm it has a folder in the download called blob and it has 3,000 things in it if you can clear that folder out it will boot much faster . That is causing the slow boot cause its reading all them messages . Check it out go to both cwm folders and see them blobs

Nope, CWM isn't even touched during a normal boot. I and many others have verified that having a ton of apps installed slows bootup since many of those apps will load in the background.

I just got a new esteem and unlike my other ones, this one boots up in about 30 seconds!!!! versus 4 minutes for my other ones!!!! What is up with that and how can I get my other one to do this?!?!?!? This is awesome. Before, I would dread the moment when I would have to reboot because of lack of internet service, etc. It has ZVD like the old ones, but is HW rev 1.1 (but I hear that is only for changing the battery cover). This phone rocks now!!! There has to be some other reason for this...anyone?

Default boot time from 5 minutes to 1

My Esteem was taking over 5 minutes to start as well. Was zvd and rooted. I just installed a new rom, Number 2 rom, and boom now my phone boots in a minute. Was nervous about messing with it, but so far so good.

I actually just upgraded from ZVB to ZVD hoping it would help the boot up speed...and it didn't.

In my experiences I've found that that's just the way stock is. Plain and simple. Root and add a custom ROM to speed up boot. That's te only thing you can do. I think it has something to do with stock not being deodexed and zipaligned bit not really for sure...

I was rooted on ZVB...and then the ZVD upgrade broke root but I just re-rooted ZVD. Still slow boot on rooted ZVD. Not interested in installing custom ROM. Oh well. I'll just have to live with slow boot. Not like I reboot the phone that often anyway...

Found solution for my phone after reading another thread in the Esteem All Things Root forum.

It used to take 3 - 4 minutes for my phone to boot up, but afer doing the following, it only takes at most 1 and a half minutes now:

From home screen hit Menu key and go to Manage apps...go to On SD card and move as many of your apps/games as possible to your SD card. You have to go to each one on the list and hit Move to SD card. They should each have a checkmark next to them when they're done being moved. Don't move critical stuff like Root Explorer/calculators/file management apps to your SD card...and you probably shouldn't move apps you use very very frequently. But the rest of your games and miscellaneous apps are good to go.

After you do this you should reboot your phone...and you may even have to reboot twice, cause after my first reboot, a bunch of my apps didn't load up properly, but a second reboot fixed this.
