Mad Dx2 crashes every minute or two

Hi,
having major issues with my dx2. When I try to play games they have a very hard time opening,most time I force close them 3+ times before they open. Then after opening they force close after a minute or two. This is a ongoing process I endure all day wherever I'm at,good network connection or bad,that doesn't seem to matter. And my social apps are the same,crash crash,crash!!! Oh the agony and stress.. its defiantly the worst when sending and receiving messages. Any help/input would be greatly appreciated ..

Thx

Welcome to AF Itisonlymee!! Glad to have you here and sorry you are having crashing issues.
Have you tried a hard reset? Pull battery (if possible) wait a minute, then reinsert battery.
Or a factory reset...but you will lose your data, apps etc. But if it helps, that may be a solution.
Here is a link to your phones forum to see if others have the same issue
Motorola Droid X2 - Android Forums

Is your phone stock or rooted at all?

Yes, the phone is stock. I've been researching, trying to figure this out.. there has to be something out there ,I just dont want to lose everything on my phone. Although cyanogen mod 7.2 sounds kinda interesting.

Did you move any of those crashing apps to the sd card? If so, move them back to phone and see if that helps.

Edit: or do you have any task killer installed? If so, uninstall the task killer...no need for those

Hello and welcome aboard.

Your device might have been corrupted or an installed app has gone rogue.

Another option (if not doing a reset) would be to uninstall all your installed applications until you find the culprit.

Note: If push come to shove, you just might have to clear storage to get things back to normal.

Best of luck.

Ill try uninstalling some apps first. Will clearing storage make me lose precious data that might cause other issues? ?

If the "clear storage" is anything like the Evo4g's "clear storage" then yes, it is like a factory reset.

Sorry for the late reply, I moved your thread there for your device.
Your pics and music should be already on your sd card.
Your contacts should be synced with your google account, if, when you entered a contact from your phone, you saved it to google.

To install the CM ROMs make sure you are on stock 2.3.4 Gingerbread. You may be on 2.3.5 which wont work. Here is one of a few links on how to perform an SBF to 2.3.4 Once you are there you can flash CM7.
