    So I wanted to see if there was any performance gain from the Android 2.3.6 OTA update (at least as compared using Quadrant). I took Quadrant score samplings before and after the OTA under the following configuration:

    • Rooted for both cases (restored root with "Voodoo OTA RootKeeper" after OTA update)
    • Standard wallpaper (no live wallpaper)
    • Most Verizon/Motorola bloatware frozen (or refrozen) using "Ti Backup" (including new ones installed from OTA update)
    • No SmartActions enabled
    • No MotoBlur (frozen with Ti Backup) and using Launcher Pro+ as the default launcher


    Quadrant scores BEFORE OTA: 2514, 2855, 2904, 3001
    Quadrant scores AFTER OTA: 2667, 2868, 2715, 3061

    I would say that the difference between the two are statistically insignificant.

    Anyone else getting different results?

    I would agree with those results. I was around 2500-2600 and after the OTA I was betwen 2600-2700. Numbers don't say much but using it last night, I do notice it being snappier and was holding a 4g signal at work for about an hour before I left. Today, it has been pretty solid.

    It's an app that measures your devices performance. It's free from the market.

    Its results don't really mean anything in the real world, but the super obsessed fret over it in an attempt to quantify how "good" their device is.
    jeverts, KoukiFC3S and m0unds like this.
