Hi Team,

I am a new member in xda. I would like to get a solution to a strange issue i am facing with my note 2 (gt n7100). I am rooted and was running DN3 v3.2. I came to know that note 2 has official upgrade to 4.4.2, so i updgraded my note 2 via odin after downloading the firmware file and got the new update on my phone. When i started navigating on my new update, i realized that most of the applications were force closing and so i did a factory reset of the data. Since then whenever i switchon my phone, it would reboot from the gt n7100 logo screen and back again. So if i connect my phone to a charger, be it usb or wall charger, it would boot up normal. But if i just boot it without the charger, it would not go past the gt n7100 screen. I have also noticed that once the phone is past the boot screen after being connected to the charger, it would reboot again in a while if i take off the charger. Guys please help, my phone is out of warranty and i need a solution for this. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Rohan

Sad enough, my friend also facing same situation.
Someone also posted same thread in Q&A section.

Maybe, either battery is faulty or kernel problem.

Hopefully someone helps us.

Try this... gently lift the centre plate in the use port with a small flat screw driver and clean the port with alcohol. Remember not to use too much force or insert yr screwdriver too deep. Alternatively clean the port first and then use a toothpick and stuck it below the plate n try n booth up. I ve save a few s3 and note 1 this way. Cheers

I am just guessing it might be the battery, as when i try to reboot my phone with my friends note 2 battery, it boots up normal without any issues.
But i really can't convince myself that a custom OS killed my battery.
