OK - you guys are going to hate this, and probably me, too - but here goes. This was the Evo community consensus view - this was required for us when we got Froyo last year. It's dated - it addresses another carrier - but as a mod, I've heard of a LOT of people with other phones following this after Froyo and getting all sorts of evil cured. You'll have to work together as a group and refine any steps for your phone, and take into account updates since we put it together. Others have, and have been happy for it. My battery is way better after Froyo. http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-support-troubleshooting/141369-how-fix-froyo.html Before anyone posts the number one complaint - we shouldn't have to do this - I'll say in advance, it's better than doing nothing by a long shot. Besides - it's a phone, and it's not if you'll ever need a full backup, it's when - nothing lasts forever. Cheers - best luck. I suggest it's imperative to read the simple explanation in post #3, below.
