I have Defy running on 2.1. I have installed some of applications from Android market (say 15 apps) and the performance of my Defy has decreased very drastically. I wanted to know how can i improve the performance of my Defy ? Should i clear cache for these applications ?
I've tried four times now to clear the phone cache according to the directions on Motorola's website. Each time I get to the point where I select clear cache, and after running some scripts on the screen, the fallen down android icon flashes randomly and the phone never recovers. I've let it sit for as long as 45 minutes with the icon flashing and eventually had to turn it off and restart the phone.
I have a Moto Maxx XT1225 but I believe clearing the cache partition is the same as the DROID Turbo (it's immediately below my question).
I always get hung up after step 5 (below) - i.e., when I press the up volume 10-15 seconds and then tap the power button, NOTHING happens...no additional menu options appear as listed below for step 6.
FYI, here's steps 1-6 as mentioned above:
1. With the phone powered off,*press*the*VOL*DOWN KEY*for 2-3 seconds then*POWER*key then release;
2. The device will display*different BOOT*OPTIONS;
3. Use the*VOL DOWN*Key to SCROLL to Recovery*and*POWER*Key to select;
Tip: If the device reboots, you may have*waited to long to make a selection, you*will need to begin the process again.*
4. The device will display*the*Motorola logo and then*the*Android in distress*(logo with Exclamation mark);
5. Press and hold the*VOL UP*key for*10-15 seconds.*While still holding*the*VOL UP*key*tap and release the*POWER*key;
Tip: You can*try this step, holding the phone in landscape. If you are*stuck on step 6, try a*force reboot by pressing the Power key and Vol Down key, and start the process again.
6. The device will display additional menu options (Text will appear in*BLUE);
I want to ask, does my phones problem, when I answer the call and call people, not very clear sound, but if he continues in the press a bit .. ok? when I was last year right near the ears, he sounds not
I have been trying to clear system cache to see if resolves some issues with WiFi I am having. But when I am trying to do this but when I get to the screen the red triangle, press and hold then VOLUME UP and POWER buttons, the screen will go blank the the phone will just reboot into the OS.
1) Power Device Off 2 Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN and POWER until you get into the system menu. 3) Press VOLUME DOWN, highlight the RECOVERY option press POWER
Wait for Red Triangle to appear.....
4) Press and hold VOLUME UP and POWER to enter option the clear system cache.
At step 4 is where it just reboots into the OS, I never get the option to clear cache. I have also tried just pressing both VOLUME UP and POWER and releasing, no luck.
So my Moto X (2014) has been a little slow lately. I decided that I'd try and clear the cache for the first time seeing as how I've encountered that recommendation several times here on the site. I've never done it, even after upgrading to 5.0.
Today I tried it and it just got stuck on "Formatting /cache..." for about 10 minutes before I decided just to reboot and try again. I've cleared cache on several other devices before and it's usually very very quick. After a reboot, same thing with the exception of these error messages:
I gave up and just booted into the OS. The phone is working ok but I don't think my cache is cleared. I have a 32GB Pure Edition. No root or custom ROMs or anything.
I now for the past hour am trying to wipe the partition cache but when I get to the last step where it shows the no command instead of it bringing me to the recovery menu it just reboots every time.
To wipe the cache partition, follow these steps:
Turn off the device. Press and hold the Volume Up and the Volume Down and Power keys at the same time for about 10 seconds. An image of an Android lying on its back will appear. Press the Volume Down key twice until "Recovery mode" appears on the screen. Press the Power key to restart in "Recovery mode." An image of an Android with a red triangle will appear. While holding down the Power key, tap the Volume Up key. The Android System Recovery screen will appear. Release all keys. (But it does not appear it just reboots the device and brings me back to the lock screen every time) Use the Volume keys to scroll to wipe data cache partition and press the Power key to select. The phone will restart.
Every time I go to Google News and click on a news item and then press the Back button, I am taken to a Google news page cached a week ago. If I refresh the page, I get the latest news page, but browsing to a news item and then attempting to return to the home page takes me back to the old cached page. The only way to clear cache is to delete the History in the browser settings and I have done this several times but to no avail. I am unable to understand why the old news page keeps coming up.
Just a question for everyone that occasionally wipes the cache partition from recovery like I do. I'm on my 2nd replacement and after I set it all up I wiped the cache partition but for some reason it takes longer than usual for the process to finish. Usually it would be like 2 seconds where now it takes around 35-40 seconds to complete. How long does it usually take you to clear your cache?
On my sony xperia z3 stamina mode doesn t seem to work.Then i go to apps, find stamina mode app then i clear cache, force stop app and i restart my z3. Than stamina mode works proparly. And the same situation after each recharge.¬† ¬† Before restart
My phone has multiple resets ad the direction of Motorola, and has been in for a circuit board replacement.Now the screen still freezes and the reception is hopeless.I am sure this handset is a lemon.It is still under warranty, 11 months old.
