If I pull the battery I see the ring of fire for about 5 seconds, then it reboots, then black screen.
At this point, the only thing I can do is force the phone into TWRP and restore a previous backup. Does anyone have any idea what could cause the phone to not want to reboot back into the system?
I was on the latest Hellybean build and TWRP is up-to-date as well. I had to revert back to the October 10 build though. I just tried rebooting it after a restore and the same thing happens (so it's not specific to a certain date of ROM). As long as I don't reboot I don't have a problem.
have you tried any other roms?
I have ran every update of Hellybean since its arrival here. I had made a backup and flashed another rom, didn't like so I went to install back up.
it would not install, just kept looping in the boot screen. had to fresh flash the rom. didn't matter which, just had to reflash. screen never went black though. you issue sounds more similar to a stuck power button, which is why I ask if you have had same problem with another rom.
I find it hard to believe this rom wont restore a back up. others have not chimed in with that specific issue. but you and I may just be 2 that have voiced the issue. wasn't that big of issue for me as I thought it more an oddity. my back up wouldn't install at all in 3 attempts, so again, whyi question your power button.
try another rom real quick if you can. don't have to like or want it, but this is a test right?
let us know what happens
