    I'll be honest. I'm so confused as to what you are asking. Could you simplify your question a little bit please? What is the problem you are having? Thanks :D

    Do you clean out your cache often?

    Download an app from Google Play called Android Assistant. It has 18 features that also includes cleaning the cache on your phone. Cache builds up if it's not clean out regularly and it can slow the phone greatly.

    Try this and see if this helps ;)

    Also the more apps you have running in the background, the more memory they are going to eat up thus slowing the phone down tremendously.

    Check settings/running apps and make sure nothing is running that shouldn't be. ;)

    ok cleared everything and even deleted some apps that are just sitting there and still no luck...tried playing a game and it keeps locking up...tried running my "Siri" Sam assistant app and it locked up had to take out the battery.....

    Locking up? Hmmmmm. Well it's not going to do it just for no reason. I'm thinking it might have to do with the ROM and maybe it was a bad install.

    You can always just start fresh and re flash your ROM to rule out that. If it still persist after that then it's a bad app somewhere or something like that.

    ok i was wondering if i could redo it.......just not sure how..the first time i tried to redo it and it got caught in a boot loop and had to use exitzip....how should i redo it?

    Save the ROM you want to install and put it on your SD card. Boot into recovery and wipe data, cache and dalvik cache. Then install zip from Sd card and choose your ROM.

    make sure your apps are backed up and contacts are backed up to your sd card as it will erase those.

    can i do a hard reset with the sd card inserted or will it wipe that one out also?

    DO NOT DO A HARD RESET.


    Do you have recovery installed? If its not installed then it wont boot into it?

    CWM Recovery is installed through the app ROM manager.

    That is what we are here for.

    What ROM did you end up going with?

    Future reminder. ONLY do factory resets through recovery. NEVER EVER through settings/privacy. ;)
