Hello everyone, how goes it? I'm a bit desperate for help at the moment, hoping to getting some insight from individuals that may have a bit more experience than I do.
Quick thanks to tx_dbs_tx
for this ROM, it was going well for a solid min, but I've hit a major snag and I'm really trying to get things back to normal...
Basic background, I was on Marshmallow-PE2, following the instructions to properly flash this ROM, I used Odin to jump back to Lollipop OK1 using the .tar file here http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4-sprint/general/stock-tar-odin-flashable-t3250864
and then followed the OP of this ROM to the letter and was up and running without any issues, and this ROM was doing great for over a month.
About a month in running this ROM I had sudden shutdowns under 20% battery life, sluggish performance, lock-ups, and all that jazz. Read up on what I could find and assumed it was a bad battery, of which I was still running a stock Samsung battery, so I got a new battery assuming that was the issue, inserted it and was hoping everything would go back to the level of function that the phone was experiencing the month previous, but no luck. The new battery charges great, holds a charge like a champ, and dropouts under 20% have all been corrected, but the reboots, the sluggish behavior, minor lock-ups, and all around strange issues all continued to dag on.
Decided that perhaps the ROM needed to be redone, so I went back to full stock using the TAR file hoping that the Note 5 Hybrid ROM was just freaking out, but no dice, even stock OS had the same issues. Then I proceeded to install the Note 5 Hybrid ROM hoping it would give me another environment to work with and see something change, and still having the same issues.
I can turn the phone on, leave it running, don't touch it, and more or less things seem fine most of the time (may or may not suddenly decide to reboot or not respond to the power button). If I'm lucky I can swipe around the primary screens, maybe send a text or something, look at my gallery or read something, but eventually something will catch, could be Google search, could be my settings, sometimes even texting can cause issues, and the phone will lock and not function, maybe reboot (maybe not). Sometimes the phone will completely shutdown and won't respond to the power button until a battery pull is performed.
This one has me stumped. I've got experience rooting and un-rooting my Note 2 from way back when, tried several different ROMs on it, I've even had it completely crash on me and lose all my stuff only to rebuild it and start over. Most of what I'm doing with my Note 4 seems to be on track with what I've done in the past with my Note 2, but I've hit a serious wall and cannot afford to screw this phone up. So any help or insight is greatly appreciated, as I would love to have this ROM fully functioning again on my phone. Thanks in advance for taking any time to talk to me. Peace!
