Default My N4's clock goes so fast

I've just bought a N4 without guaranty.

Everything runs OK except the clock. It goes faster than normal, about 30 extra minutes every 15 hours. No matter if I set it automatic or manual.

It is rooted and with Purity\franco rom\kernel mix but it didn't even fix it.

Is there any internal hardware module which controls the clock?

Is it just the clock or the entire system .. like .. do games run faster? Does the typing "cursor" blink faster? Does it happen on stock?
Do you have a question about the HD2 ? Ask it here for an instant response.

It happens on stock toˇ.

I'll check with the timer and see what happens...

Nevertheless I haven't noticed anything strange but the clock's issues.

Just checked the timer and it runs about 2 seconds faster than normal.

How could it be?

Are you by any chance running close to the speed of light or flying in a space rocket?

It looks like it's the whole system. We used to have this issue back in the early days on the HTC HD2, flashing a different kernel solved it. But since you said it happens on different kernels AND on stock, I'm not sure what could be the culprit.

Have you tried complete stock? (stock everything with locked bootloader)
I don't know, I'm just suggesting... Sorry... I hope you get it fixed.

I've just tried flashing a new kernel. It didn't work.

Is there by any chance any kernel setting for controlling the whole system speed?

I wont advice slowing the whole system down just because of your clock.

The absolute worst I can think about it the internal clock crystal is a bit off (hardware-faulty) and will be replaced under warranty if you still have it.
- Im sorry, forgot that you dont have warranty anymore


A few things:
Have you bought it 2nd-handed?
If yes:
Did the previous owner have the same problem?
Did the previous owner flash any software?
In what condition did you receive your N4? (cracked screen? fall damage? water damage?)

If no:
You should still have warranty I believe



If it did came out of the box with this problem; go back to your seller, explain your problem and work out some kind of fix


Dont get me wrong, its probably a software problem somewhere, but some of the above might help finding the problem

Actually I bought it as a faulty and without warranty device (80$). It's been manipulated (cracked and fixed screen) so it has no warranty.

Nevertheless, it runs absolutely great.

What do you mean with internal clock crystal?

Thanks for your help!
