This thread is intended to do a couple of things: - Keep all my whining posts about how Froyo won't run on my phone from cluttering up the various Froyo threads here - Bring together other Droid owners who can install Froyo just fine, but after Froyo installs, after all their apps have been reinstalled and their email accounts sync'd, find that Froyo won't run on their phone - they get extreme slowdowns and/or lockups and have to switch back to a 2.1 ROM - Suggestions for troubleshooting the inability to run 2.2 - See if we can figure out what's going on! This thread is NOT for: - Advice on how to install 2.2 - please ask for help in the Froyo ROM threads. Please don't post here if you're having general problems installing or booting Froyo, or installing your apps on Froyo, or any other Froyo setup issues. This thread is for those Droids where setup, app reinstall, account setup, etc., is the easy part, but actually running Froyo after setup is where the fail occurs. If it turns out that set of Droid owners with this problem = just me, I'll have my quiet cry and move on. But I'm thinking that others must be having similar issues w/the 2.2 ROMs, and maybe we might find a common theme. My results...after install of Froyo and sign-in to my primary Gmail account everything seems like it's going to be OK. Apps reinstall (put the phone down and wait for this to finish), setup email accounts and they sync, etc. Then, after it seems like it's going to be OK, the extreme slow-downs/lock-ups begin to occur - sometimes it takes 10 or 15 minutes, sometimes it takes an hour. 2.2 ROMs I've tried: - The initial release (from My Droid World) - Birdman's release (from Alldroid) - Fabulous' release (from Android Forums) - Multiple kernels (from My Droid World) - Running and not running SetCPU, overclocking and not overclocking - Many battery pulls and restarts - Updating to the new baseband All w/the same results. I've wiped everything before installing, let the phone sit after install until all apps are restored and accounts sync'd, rebooted, pulled the battery, etc. I even updated to the new baseband in case that might help, but still no go. I've been loading ROMS for months, know the steps and gotchas, but 2.2 has completely stymied me. My phone just will not run it, no matter what I've done/tried. I'm actually beginning to wonder if I'll be able to run the official release when it comes out, if there's something fundamentally off w/my Droid that will make it incompatible w/2.2 (maybe the JIT component - earlier JIT releases always gave my phone fits). If anyone has any good troubleshooting suggestions for Droids that are 2.2-phobes, love to hear 'em. My next step is to load a ROM and then try to block app install by going into the market right away and downloading an app - I've heard that will stop the automatic app reinstall. Going to try that to see what happens, in case it's a specific app that is causing my issues. Thanks!
