hey guys
so something odd happened

i've made no system changes in the last week... all i did today was install Freedom app and used it on a game.

so i played (wheres my water 2) for about 2 hours and my phone got hot, so i decided to reboot it and then let it cool

but then it failed to boot, it showed "Google" and shut down, and again and again.
so i held the volume rockers and went into the bootloader mode thing, chose reboot, and this time it boot went all the way to the 4 colors screen, and again reboot (over and over)

then i went to the TWRP screen, was about to wipe cache but was not sure if i go to advanced wipe and only mark cache and delvik if it will still factory reset or only wipe those, so i just reboot and this time it worked.

following reboot attempts do work.

any idea/way to check what i did to mess things up/fix it?

The cpu was probably hot and it shut itself down. Then it took awhile to cool down. I think everything is all right.

all i did was play a game and charge the phone >.<
does the phone do that BELOW dangerous temp or after? when it can be harmed?

It does it before dangerous temp. If you where charging and playing a game at the same time it'll get hot quick. I'm sure that's what caused the phone to reboot

the cpu safety shut down temp is 100C. if it reaches that temp, it will automatically get shut down. temperatures above that are dangerous, but the phone gets shut down before that moment.
