I'm right there with you. I've uninstalled everything, added everything I can to the auto-end list, and sent the phone back twice. I will continue sending it back until i get one working or they send me a working phone. This is unacceptable, if anyone knows what can help this please fill us in

Mine has been running fine since the update a few months ago (US version). Also running Launcher Pro however I had to uninstall, then re-install Launcher Pro following the update. Phone was very laggy, and did not function properly (screen layout) following update. There may have been 1-2 other apps not working properly, and also needed re-installing.

There is a bug in 2.2.1 where the "init" process will run constantly at like 70% cpu and slow everything down. I don't know what turns it on, but once it's running, it's curtains. Download OS Monitor free from the Market and run it and see if "init" is running as PID 0, and running constantly. You can't force it to close either, it just starts up again.

The work around is to go into Settings / Applications / Development and turn USB debugging on, then reboot. I have no idea why this works, I found it on another site for another Motorola phone (Droid?). But it does work if this is your problem.

great app thanks. do you know anyway you can turn off certain programs for good (apart from uninstalling them) like ones that came with the phone, one being Social Networking, that's using loads of CPU.. i can shut it off but it keeps restarting.

I use a program called AntTek App Manager to "freeze" certain apps from running. Hopefully that'll work

Dunno if this is related, but updated to 2.2.2 official UK (from leaked 2.2.1) for warranty repairs. I found some things acting oddly, some apps crashing, & YouTube presenting a black screen. This is unacceptable so went back to my 2.2.1 nandroid. Phew!
