[Solved] SM-N9005 Vodafone stock Gallery memory leak
: Solution at the end of the post!
Hi guys I have my brand new Note 3 here and I've been playing with it for a few hours now. I noticed the Gallery app was very laggy but figured it was indexing the photo's from my old One X.
After I had everything set up the way I wanted to I gave the Gallery another go and it was still very laggy so I figured I might as well try a factory reset (Even though I was just done setting everything up the way I liked it :P)
Once I was back to factory defaults with an empty SD card I took two pictures, and again found the gallery to be laggy, When I went to have a look at the Gallery app's RAM usage I got these results:
It started at 40mb and worked up to over 450 ending in a crash.
Any known fixes for this?
I don't mind flashing a new ROM but from what I've read the warranty on these Samsung's is easily voided. Perhaps someone can elaborate what's possible without tripping KNOX? My CSC is N9005VFGDMJ1 and the current ROM has some Vodafone apps in it I cannot remove. I'd love to just get a stock unbranded ROM, but can this be done without voiding the warranty? Hopefully that should fix my gallery issue as well.
Looking forward to some more info, thanks in advance!
Turns out it was Plex Media Server. I disabled DLNA, rebooted Plex and the phone and the issue was resolved. Too bad I tripped Knox over this...
