I rooted my Inspire a while back with no problems, just to get 3rd party apps. Recently Un-rooted to get the latest software update ( and hopefully the 3rd party update soon ). So having had the phone both ways, I was amazed at how much slower it is now un rooted! I have a poor signal now ( had 5 bars rooted, barely keep 2 bars unrooted, sitting in the same spot in the house ) plus I ran the Speed test app ( rooted I got over 1200 kbps down, 380 up, unrooted, I get 300 kbps down, 179 up ).
Anyone else compared the performance both ways? Is this normal?
i've concidered rooting my phone, but mt speeds vary from 6000 down 1300 up to 500 down 200 up. first speed is at work and second is at home, 8 miles apart. i live in north east florida. the only problem i have with rooring my phone is downloading the files to do it. i've followed the instructions with no luck.
