Android media process hogs CPU (47%, which means 100% for one thread on this dual core device).
The device was running fine for a few months, so the problem is not the ROM/kernel but was caused by something else later on.
I would like to fix this problem (without reformatting/reflashing the whole ROM). If there is no easy solution I just want to disable it, but could not figure out how.
Killing the process helps for some time, but after some minutes/hours the process is back. I tried 'pm disable com.android.providers.media' as well as 'pm disable com.android.providers.media/com.android.media.MediaScannerReceiver' -- both with no result (it helps for a few minutes but then the process is back again!).
I don't know how/where this process is started so that I can make a modification there to disable it or which package I should delete to get rid of the process.
Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
