It doesn't load until I let it sit for a while or until I clear the cache.
I didn't download any new software, nor made any software changes. I did notice afterwards the battery would show 5% or 10% left when right before it rebooted the battery was like 70%
Its stock root XXUAMF5.
Any thoughts? I read somewhere that the battery can be the fault. I was thinking of doing a factory wipe and installing the newest firmware (is the newest XXUBMK3?)
Yes, the newest is XXUBMK3. A Wipe would be what I would do/recommend, though if it's a battery fault, you could try buying a new battery. I can't post links, but if you go to this thread: /showthread.php?t=2311200 then the first link is of interest. Personally, what I do is have two batteries as well as a charging pack. This way I don't risk damaging the MHL port on the device, which has happened on 3 previous devices.
Again, I'd just be flashing your chosen ROM again. Make sure to wipe all the cache's and system in recovery mode first.
