Im in this boat... Tried all the NC2 roms available and always the same. Works for a while fine but then all 4 CPUs continuously run over 50% (I can see this in Hyperdrive Rom) until I reboot. Tried killing apps, freeing memory, going into airplane mode, turning off GPS and nothing affects it. Like if its a kernel memory crash happening. Screen will be come unresponsive every 3-4 seconds yet background animations like livewallpaper keep running. In Battery it shows that the google services is eating the battery.
I have flashed back to 4.3 about 3 times now and I am always successful in getting the phone to work normally on 4.3 but no 4.4 NC2 rom agrees with my hardware. Ive even tried the MJE Radio as I thought it may have something to do with it as whenever I use my phone on NC2, it gets hot and cools down after .. Phone doesn't even warm up on 4.3
As more people experience this with NC4/NC2 hopefully someone will find the cause..
I will flash back to 4.3 sometime soon as the phone getting soo hot with normal usage is uncomfortable..
