[Q][SOLVED] Screen remains OFF/ Can't unlock screen
I came across a rather unusual issue that I simply can not fix by myself. After succesfully flashing a rom (sungsonic rom v3) I noticed that the screen remains off despite my attempts of unlocking it. (tried power button/home button/ phone call). None of them worked. What's strange about it is that the phone is still ON(the led is flashing etc..)
I tried to fix this by performing a factory reset and deleting the cache partition. It didn't work.
I tried flashing other roms: stock 4.1.2(zip, not tar), stock 4.3(zip, not tar), EmotionMIUI, CM10.2, omniROM, OMEGA, Phoenix and that's all I remember. All of those displayed the same error except CM10.2, which kept freezing and rebooting by itself. ( these were flashed both with Philz and TWRP)
I think that restoring a backup would be a possible solution, however during this process my SDcard got corrupted and I lost my backups.(bummer)
Has anyone here dealt with this issue? Can anyone upload to mega a note2 backup so I can try restoring it (if possible)?
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: I looked into the sudden death syndrome thread, however my phone can go into download/recovery mode and WORKS PERFECTLY FINE UNTIL THE SCREEN IS LOCKED(then it has to be rebooted again)
P.P.S: connecting/disconnecting charger doesn't work either.
EDIT: I deleted NFCLockscreenOff using SD Maid (it's a system apk) and it works perfectly now.
