My friend has a Motorola Defy which is beginning to run very slowly and reboot itself at random. He's had it for a couple of years.
He doesn't have enough money right now to get a decent replacement so I suggested there might be ways to get a few more months out of the phone.
Installing a brand new/ clean operating system seems like a good plan. I've had a look at Cynogenmod but I'm not sure if that will achieve what we're after.
In the case of a slow Android phone is the best approach to install a new OS? Or are there ways of cleaning up/ speeding up the OS without going to that level?
If we were going to install a new operating system is Cynogenmod the best approach?
I noticed this question explaining how to return the Defy to it's original stock state: Return my motorola defy to its original state
