    Extremely slow boot time

    Right, so I'm running OS 5.0.0.1036, and lately I've been subjected to a VERY slow bootup time (ie. a batter pull). A couple months back, it used to boot in 3 minutes, and now, 10 minutes is normally how long it takes, and I haven't changed my OS for a very long time.

    Any ideas on how to reduce the time? I don't have many apps installed, so I can't think of any reason it's behaving like this.

    Thanks!

    If you don't have many apps installed you can try elimination process. Backup your device. And then start deleting apps, starting with the ones you may think are an issue, one by one till you notice any change.

    .. usually enabling the memory cleaner will make the handset boot slower when booting.. other apps that cleans the log will add more time as well..

    So I do this until it stops?:
    Delete app -> Reboot -> Delete another app?
    I'll try it out as soon as I'm not busy
    Thanks Joe

    I don't have the memory cleaner enabled, so I don't think it's coming from that.

    I would personally update to the .1067 version. I haven't heard or seen any issues with this update. I got a girlfriend using it for 4+ months already

    Right. I'll try that, and if it didn't work, I'll try Joe's method.
    Thanks guys!

    Another option is as below :-
    1. Backup all ur data & apps
    2.Install OS on PC & Shrink OS. Remove most of junk & select only core apps
    3. Do a clean wipe with BBSAK
    4. Do a fresh install with only core apps.
    5. See Bootup time. If still it is low, try with a diff OS -preferable old OS with which the handset was launched.
    6. If that too gives, slow boot chk ur device memory etc. It could be buggy!!!

    Yeah, I did shrink my OS before I installed it. I took out all the apps that need a data plan, like BBM, Twitter, MSN, all of those. I guess I'll have to update. I'll do it when school ends, though

    Thanks for all the help guys
