Has anyone else experienced their phone getting hot after unlocking the bootloader? I mean, literally only unlocking it, not installing a custom kernel or rom or anything. Stock rom and kernel.

Even just going through the start up settings once I'd rebooted (unlocking the bootloader wipes the phone), the phone is getting crazy hot. I've had no issues with the phone getting hot before, could browse the web for hours on wifi no problem. Now the phone is getting hot within seconds and I'm not even doing anything!

Any help would be great.

Unlocking the bootloader does not make any changes that could cause the device to heat up.

Yeah, I know that. I was really tired when I posted this tho.

It was the media server going crazy, probably because it was rescanning 300 odd albums I've got on my sdcard. .nomedia to the rescue!
