I have the same problem, this seems to be firmware related to me, the phone works in safe mode but this is really crappy now
. I don't think there should be a return unless it's the only fix.Will try and flash JB and update the post.
Edit: Is that sds the Sudden death thing. I tried searching but no results come up. I am a new comer to Samsung as their devices sucked for ages and they still seem to do. Please can some one advise us(the op and myself and future people with this problem) on what is the main cause of this issue that a hard reset fixes it. But for my device,it doesn't die it stops functioning.
This is how I get this problem, my phone is rooted, but it runs fine only when there is a app crash the phone locks up and thats it.
what i tried: I tried to back up my data so i could save myself from reinstalling all my app. I hard reseted the phone and the phone functioned again
but after restoring my data the phone locks up again. Now my phone works about 5sec from normal boot but then locks up. It works fine in safe mode. So really where is issue? Is an app is making the whole OS to jam there has to be a simple fix for this
Please don't say return the device, thats the dumbest thing to ever say. We want to over come the problem not ignore it/get rid of it.
Thanks for your time guys
