Angry

Ok so ive got a couple general questions I thought i might as well wrap all into one thread.

Breif background, my motorola cliq was quick in the beginning but now it has seemed to slow down so bad. I even removed almost all extra apps i installed and still its slow as hell, cleared internet and youtube cache and still slow... I use taskiller alot but still it just doesnt seem to get any better.

1. If i do a factory reset, will my contacts be stored in my motoblur account? Essentially i'm asking if I need to back that list up or not.
2. What are way to speed this sucker up? Should I just go ahead and root it and get rid of alot of the bloatware?
3. Is there any better program then taskiller out there?

I know to take my sd card out when i reset, just it case. Most likely Ill go the reset and root route, gotta read up on that a little bit though. Its been at least 4 years since i rooted something, and the last thing i rooted was a windows mobile phone. cingular 8325, that thing was amazing for its time! hahah

1)Yeah, they should restore through your motoblur account. However, to make sure you don't lose them either store your numbers on your sim card, SD card, or use the tmobile backup app.

2)Root it if you want it to be faster

3)...I don't know -.-

thank you very much!

did a sstem restore last night, and holy crap it is alot faster. probably becuase of all the picture messages i send and recieve it just got really clogged up.

I'll probably end up rooting it, can u link me to the best guide available? I'll go ahead and looking around on the site, ive read a couple things already. Just really scared and dont wanna brick my phone lol.

I used a combination of these two tutorials:

Motorola DEXT/CLIQ How To’s | TheUnlockr

YouTube - How To Root The Motorola Cliq


The first link which is Theunlockr is pretty good for telling you the basics, but when it comes to certain specifics, it's not helpful at all. Which is where the second link comes in handy because it shows what SHOULD happen when you do things.

Hope this helps.

Is there a certain rom which is best?

I'm only trying to get the least amount of bloatware possible combined with the best performance so my emulators dont lag.

windows xp

So I have AndroidSDK folder in the C drive and I downloaded the cliq drivers directly since the drivers wouldnt install automatically for some reason. I try to let the computer search for them after I downloaded them and still it isnt letting me install the drivers for the cliq.

Yeah, after you delete the HTC drivers you're supposed to manually install the other Motorola drivers I believe. Did you download it from the MOTODEV site?

yup, it was like 36 mb i think.

but when i went to browse for the driver if i cliked any other folder besides the normal windows/options/cab folder the "ok" buton would become grey and unable to click, so i pasted the downloaded files into the cab folder and clicked ok, and i got the same error and before, like I was telling it to search an empty folder.

cannot update this file, like it cant see the driver file ><

Last speedbump!!

After I flash orange, and i reset the phone to flash the custom rom, I dont have that same white screen with a little guy on it. Do I need to rename the Rom? Or do I just leave it signed-j_r0dd.cliqmod.b8.zip? should i change it to update.zip?

So now, that you've flashed the orange rom. You need to flash the recovery.img file through ADB. This is the part where I got stuck on when I tried it, watch the video by cliqandroid and it shows you exactly what happens when you flash the recovery.img file.

As for renaming the actual ROM, you don't need to do that. Just put that ROM in the root of your SD card.

NVM! just got it, installing the final rom now ><

praying LOL

edit: what happened (i guess) is that instead of pasting the link, I just typed it out (100% correct, or so i thought) so the recovery img didnt really go into effect.

still installing the rom

Yeah, I'm planning on retiring my CLIQ in the next month or so. Might either get an HD2 and install Android in it, or wait for either the MyTouch HD or Motorola Defy
