Default [Q] exhibit 2 4g hangs on incoming call

Dear all,

i have an old samsung galaxy exhibit 2 4g and decided to install a custom rom. i used below mentioned link for the ROMs.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...axy_Exhibit_4G

i have tried majority of the ROMs after v4 but all of them are giving me same problem
Phone hangs on incoming call and only vibrates no sound. and i have to ultimately pull the battery out.
the issue is not observed on stock ROM.
It is also not observed on REMICS 3.0.1 but only if i disable backup and restore option. disabled this option on other custom rom as well but did not fix the issue on other ROMs.
I would appreciate any help.

sorry late on this. which cwm or twrp version are you using? jfbs twrp 2.7.1.0 or cwm 6.0.4.8 is the latest which is need on kk roms also cars1198 has cwm6.0.4.9. picking one of these 3 is user preference. for kk roms lastest slimbean 7/7build and dcm 6/20 by jfbs is stable and for cm11 cars1198 6/19 build is pretty stable. any of these 3 should work just fine without any issues with latest recoveries. if you dont know how its just like flashing a rom except when you reboot you want to reboot boot back into recovery then do a fresh install. also on a complete fresh install what ever is on on your internal sdcard that you want to keep move it to external sd or pc. then format /system /data /cache /android secure and /sdcard0. then install rom only, reboot and wait for it to fully boot up. then reboot back into recovery and install gapps. then wipe dalvik-cache and reboot. after you sign into gplay give the phone time to sync your contacts and so forth which will bog down the phone for 1-30mins or longer depending how much needs to be sync. after that you should be ready to go with no or very minor issues. in which you would ask in the appropriate rom op.
N. Tesla need I say more?

hey there,

thanks for the reply.
I am using cwm v6.0.1.2.
What i get from your reply is that
flash the latest recovery, reboot in to recovery again
flash your suggested ROM, fresh install
boot in to the OS
boot again in to recovery and install gapps
boot the phone and give it a couple of hours to sych data and update if any and then see if its working or not.

i will give it a try and will let you know. btw i was not facing any issues on any other roms except the mentioned issue and all the roms were running pretty fast.

everyones had different issues using older recoveries. cwm 6.0.4.4-5 works for anything jb or below. the higher ones are for kk roms which is the most recent and both cars and jfbs kk roms are better then aoip or any of the other roms. Since ion hybrid thanks to adc team and more stable kk roms are out now. imo any of cars is cm roms are good for the everyday people while jfbs slim and dcm are geared more to those who want more features and customization (advance users). i always test both devs roms but personally i like jfbs roms better as far as what i do but any of the 3 are stable for everyday use now. but ya let me know if that helped out.

tried cynanogen1, worked smoothly but did not fix the issue
slimkat 4.4.4, faced FC every second. it was almost impossible to even boot the phone.

first i thought there is some hardware issue but the phone is working fine on 2 roms so i guess thats out of the question. let me know if you could suggest something else.

which cwm or twrp version did you use. I too was facing the fc's on my phone for a while but after using twrp 3.7.1.0 or cwm 6.0.4.8 i dont have that issue anymore. my personal exact order including mods i use.
1. flash twrp 3.7.1.0 < if you already have this or cwm 6.0.4.8 already
2. Format /system then /cache, then /data/ then /internal sd < so everything except /boot and /external sd
3. flash rom < if doing cm11 you can flash oc kernel right after
4. flash supersu < optional its the same as stock superuser but little more options like allow su on boot (on xda)
5. wipe davlik cache and reboot system
6. reboot boot back into recovery
7. flash gapps < if slim get it from slimroms, if dcm or cm11 the gapps from cars1189 mass cm build 1-5-14.
8. flash malive booster < (on xda)
9. wipe dalvik cache and reboot system
10. once full loaded back in install seeder 2.0 (on xda) have a check mark on all 3 with light profile then enable.
11. then finish signing in google account and updating apps. 30mins later its smooth as butter.

you are the MAN man. from your instructions i deduced that i was not wiping davlik cache after flashing but before. now every rom is working fine, no issue is observed. thanks
Since you know your stuff could you let me know which rom is the best in terms of performance and battery life?
thanks again

Stock wise Slim has better performance over cm11 with slightly less bettery life. to get the best performance to battery life follow my oc guide i posted. you want to keep the voltage equal to or less then stock voltage while having the highest frequency as possible. the lower voltage from stock the higher battery life over stock will be. if you do plan on overclocking and undervolting your self make sure you read my oc entirely before attemping. the oc guide methodology is the same for anything that can overclock including desktop cpus, gpus, and yes some nics. some routers as long as it can support a 3rd party firmware such as ddwrt or openwrt. other phones that have oc and voltage control support. you may also get some extra performance and battery saving by trying different build.prop tweaks or mods or any of the combination. some may help you and not me and vise versa and some may help everyone. its more about find what works best for you for what you do.
