Default My girlfriend Galaxy s2 is having a lot of problems

Hey Guys,

My girlfriend is having alot of problems with her phone lately.
It was turned off occusionaly during the day.

I've replaced the rom on her device and though it would fix it.
I bought the akku polarcell 1800mah for her because I had good experience
on the past with polarcell battery for my previous galaxy s1.

Guys I don't really know what to do and my girlfriend is counting on me to fix this ..
I told her to put some papar near the battery to have it better grip with the electricity circuit.

Maybe there is a Corrosion- how to fix this?

Guys,
Please let me know your input on this and how to solve this.
Looking forward for any input- thanks in advance.

All the best!
thanks you guys

You can't really fix corrosion, because it tends to spread slowly throughout the device over time. It depends on what's damaged, if you're lucky it might only be the USB board which is cheap to replace, if it's components on the motherboard then replacing that is more expensive, if it's through the whole phone it might even be a bin job because it's probably going to continue to get worse over time.

Only way to know for sure is to take it to someone qualified (I.E a mobile repair shop) & have them take a look.

Edit - Or...You could replace the USB board yourself & see how that goes. It's easy/quick/cheap (~US$10) to do yourself, search for KeithRoss39's guide in General (search for 'replacing USB charger board' or similar), and if you're lucky this solves the problem. If it doesn't, then you take it someone qualified for diagnosis (and in changing the USB board, as you're pulling the phone apart, you'll be able to see if/how much corrosion is there).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

Thanks for the quick replies.
The issue is we don't want to invest money in this and would rather staying with the phone as it is if needed.
How can I make it better?

Any Idea?

Did you even read my post ?

You can't. It's obviously something hardware-wise going on. You can either take that advice & possibly fix the phone, or put up with it in its current state. There isn't anything 'easy' you can do.

What rom did you put on it?
Aosp or sammy-based?? The reboots can be software related
