pershoot and me currently search for a mysterious bug and could use your help. as it seems, this bug only appears on gt-p7500 and not on the other variants of galaxy tab 10.1 - i tried both my own builds and to verify the build from this thread - resulting in same behavior.
i made a video to illustrate:
if you have seen something like this, please reply right away. if you have not see this yet, please try the following:
- put a big widget on a homescreen (i.e. gmail big-resized) so you will notice the flicker
- fill the list of recent apps until it exceeds the available space (i.e. gets scrollable)
- start the video player via gallery or start a youtube video for a short time
- go back to homescreen
- press recent-tasks button
- see flicker on that widget just as in video ?!?
i tried the above in a wiped state. the video shown was in normal state with lots of apps. in wiped state, i was not able to reproduce the flicker of the recent-app list, but only the flicker of the widgets/launcher. but i guess thats just a matter of more testing, since both seems to be the same basicly.
i did not encouter any flicker without starting the video player at least once. i also didnt get the flicker effect with a short recent-app list. it seems like the recent app list must be scrollable and the video player must have done something to the video mode.
thats all the information i got right now. all this might be the reason for a crash i encounter every now and then, rendering the system completly dead until very-long-press-power-to-switch-off action. it always happend when i was switching a task / accessing the recent apps list.
seems im affected with this issue.
For me it apears as black flickering triangle on bottom of the screen.
Actually now in tapatalk whole keyboard flickers aswell when i try to access recently used apps.
