You responded before I edited out my post. I disabled profiles and that didn't help.
I finally tracked it down to an updated Emoji Switcher app which took ringer permission for so reason.
I don't know why that app has that permission in it or why it tirned itself on. But after turning it off, my problem went away.
I figured it was an app after reflashing the ROM multiple times.
Thanks for this! Its drive me crazy tho. :good:
