Hi all, my Note 2 tends to restart when I shake it a little or randomly, used to do that with stock ROM and custom ROMs as well, does it happen to you guys as well?
Thanks

Yes, I have the same problem. Mine also restarts if the phone gets pressed inside jeans pocket.
I tried inserting some padding in battery compartment but no help.
Very irritating.

I haven't tried that ROM yet, I tried Omni ROM and I'm currently on Phoenix ROM.

In fact it does restart when I have it in my jeans pocket if I bend my legs specially when entering in a vehicle.
I'll try to insert some padding on my sim card since I had to cut it to fit and that could make it sag when there is an impact on the phone.
If it doesn't work I guess I'll just have to live with that annoyance, thank God the phone boots up fast otherwise it would be a greater nightmare.
Thanks

When Samsung adopted RoHS there was grave loss in the quality of soldering. Note2 is the victim of modern standards.

Oh boy, now I'm definitely switching over to the 5.5 inch iPhone at the end of the year if there will be one...

Guys, this shouldn't have anything to do with your ROM if it's caused by physical shock to the device - it's your battery not making good contact in your phone. You need to check that.

On my phone the battery seems pretty tight plus the phone has been always inside a SEIDIO hard case, but I will see if I can make it more secure in place.

For me this problem kept getting more and more often. Even I tried case mate tough case. That didn't help either. Finally I just exchanged the phone for N5.
