I flashed and rooted a stock firmware and I've been using it for 15 days without a problem until yesterday. If I do a wipe/factory reset, the lock screen is still there, with and without SIM card. I have also tried to flash other ROMs like the pure Google 4.3 v2.1 and it's no working, the screen is still there. The mobile phone is brand-new and simlocked with Vodafone Spain.
Do you know if that's a locking or protection mechanism of some time?
thanks in advance!
it seems to be that the problem is that your phone is detecting a magnet sensor (the same as the SVIEW Cover Mechanism) because those information you see is what the SVIEW Cover shows up. Maybe hardware problem . . . (WHAT IM SURE IS THAT ITS SHOWING UP THE SVIEW SCREEN)
