Now i installed stock ICS on it and it does the above still BUT i always get a message - charging paused - voltage too high.
So i done heaps of research on this very forum and found different things to try, Below is a list of all the things ive tried so far........
1. software flash (original)
2. clean charging port and battery pins
3. Move the pin in the charging port away from the sides
4. Replace the charging port board completely
5. calibrate battery (by app and manually)
6. Tried rooting the s2
7. Installed VK ROM (23.06.12)
I think before any galaxy S2 user attempts to root or even carry out the factory reset, it might be better to carry out a process of elimination first.
When this message came up on my phone, the first thing i did was power off the phone for at least 1hr. When i switched on the phone, i didn’t get this message again and there was no problem charging the phone, either by the charger or the usb port!
I was surprised to receive this error message, but i suppose i do use the phone to watch youtube vids on most nights, for two solid hours straight, so i guess it was just a matter of time before i received such a message.
