    Hey everyone!

    I have been having problems with my phone recently. It keeps freezing on me. Like when I unlock the phone, it sometimes stays on that screen for 10 seconds before actually unlocking. It also freezes on the text message application.
    I recently put I.H.O. on my phone too, and its still having the same problem. I really don't know what the problem is and am having a hard time pinpointing what it could be and how to fix it. Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

    My advice to you would be to format everything except the sd card and re-install the ROM and/or theme you want to use and the latest gapps.

    Sounds to me like you got a bad flash.

    It was doing this even with the stock ROM on it.

    When you had the stock ROM on the phone did this happen before you rooted? If not, what recovery did you use to flash the IHO ROM. What all did you wipe and format before you flashed the ROM and Gapps? Did you install a theme with the ROM and Gapps?

    Yes it has been doing this since before I rooted the device.

    A bad SD card will cause problems with the phone locking as well...try replacing it to see if that helps.

    Well I already have an 8GB SD card :p

    And I will try seeing if it works better with my old 2GB SD card in there.

    if the stock 2G uSD card works try putting the 8g into your PC. When the window pops up exit it. Then go to start/computer/uSD card. Right click on it. Select format,a window will pop up(Format SD Card). Select FAT(not FAT 32). Click start. it will take a while to format. This will wipe all data from the card.

    You will need to transfer to a folder all those things you want to keep from the uSD card before you format. Then when it is done,transfer all the saved data back to the card and install back into the phone.
