hi all, as the title says my hox + is repeatedly crashing n rebooting. this has been happening since yesterday. the hox was fine in the morning and then randomly started playing up in the afternoon. the phone is completely stock n locked. its not the power button as when I enter fastboot the phone stays on n doesn't even freeze. it went flat after a while so I left it to completely flatten over night. its been on charge for a while now n its still rebooting even without me turning it on, it turns on by itself.....freezes.....then reboots.

any ideas guys?

really don't want to pay for insurance again n I now know it takes takes 2 weeks to replace a lost phone so god knows how long it will take them to look at a phone

"pay for insurances AGAIN"?

Does this happen randomly? Or it happens all the time? If you will be enough desperate, you can always try a factory reset as this looks like a software bug.

yeh ive tried factory reset in fastboot and also erased cache command. im going to try a rom now ive got it to stay off n charge. it will only stay off selecting power down quickly, if I select power off in bootloader it restarts. it does seem like software though as it doesn't auto reboot in recovery or bootloader

cant do anything. it would boot up fully...then freeze after 5 secs or so then reboot and do the same again. Ive claimed for a new phone now tho. I couldn't find an ruu after trying a new rom so insurance repair wasn't going to happen. the phones gone now n hopefully a replacement will come soon. guessing I had a bad refurb last time iclaimed
