Exclamation Android is upgrading on every reboot

Hi everyone,

Ever since I upgraded the phone to 4.0.3, everytime I reboot the phone is says Android is upgrading, scans all my apps and then starts them. Also, it causes contacts to become unlinked with Facebook. I have to resync them every time. Otherwise the phone is great! Any ideas? It's more annoying than anything else.

Mine does the same. Standard feature of 4.0.3 maybe. I have not found any settings to change this. It would probably require a root/ROM to make it selectable in boot.

It's a bug with ICS (or so I've read). Anyway there's no way around it, AFAIK. But agreed - - a PITA.

It's optimizing your applications. It's only supposed to do that after you wipe caches.

If its doing it everytime that's def a bug and not how ics is supposed to act

I thought it was some new "feature" or something. I hate to have to reboot because it takes forever.

Default same issue

So is there really no way to fix this? if this is the case. after numerous issues I have with this stupid phone I completely regret giving up my iphone 4 and I'm about to throw away this stupid HTC and go back to apple.

I'm sick of having to constantly charge my cell battery several times througout the day. I lose 20% of my battery only talking on the phone for ten minutes. I would hardly lose 40% on the apple after 8 hours of using it as much as I would in 2 hours on the htc. This phone is a waste of time and money.

I hear people say it's the screen size causing the battery drain. bull! my ipad only lost 56% after not touching or charging for a week!

How often do you honestly reboot the device?


Your iPad doesn't have to power the radio.......

Sounds like this device is just really buggy then. If you ate within your return period is check into a higher end option if available

It is a new feature with the update. My daughter updated, and ever since then, it rescans every app upon restarting the phone.

This isn't in line with all the other ics devices though. It should only do it after wiping caches

I don't have that problem check in settings think you can run a quick boot if not mistaken.

If you're referring to "Fast Boot," it doesn't help.

I actually dont have to boot my phone too much, so I am just dealing with it. I actually still love the phone..As far as battery draining. I changed some display settings and am super vigilant about what's running. It's better but still at times sucks down the battery pretty quickly

It is rebuilding your dalvoc cache. If it happens every boot something is wrong in the process. An app is hosed in regards to your dalvic cache.

Hey, have you pushed anything to /system/app? Also, might be a problem with dalvik. If you've added any .apk that doesn't work, remove it. I got that every time and it would work if I removed that one .apk.
