    Note: Does not have an insane chip

    Hello All,
    I wonder if you can help. For the last 4months I’ve been having issues with my Note 2. It freezes at seemingly random times & requires a restart. Occasionally the LED will continue to flash even though I can’t get the screen to reactivate/ respond. The freezing does occur when the phone is not moved (i.e. unlikely to be a battery terminal contact issue).

    The freezing occurs in the following modes:

    • Normal/ standard use
    • Safe mode
    • Charging mode (i.e. phone switched off & then plugged into charger)

    It has occurred in the following software configurations:

    • v4.3 (rooted)
    • v4.4 (not rooted)
    • v4.4 (rooted)
    I’ve tries the usual:

    • Clearing the cache (via the recovery option)
    • Doing a factory reset
    • Checking for an ‘insane’ chip
    & also:

    • 2 different batteries.
    I haven’t tried:

    • Upgrading the ‘radio’

    I have to at this point suspect that is a hardware issue because software upgrades/ resets have not helped (unless a separate update for the radio could solve the problem).

    Has anyone seen anything like this?
