    So for a while now my f3 has been acting really stupid and I need to get some help. About 2 weeks ago I was looking for a different lockscreen so I download the miui lockscreen, cover, and something else from the play store but in the end I didn't keep any of them and deleted all of those apps. Now for some reason on my stock lockscreen with a pattern lock, it makes a loud clicking sound and then there's an animation and then it goes to normal. I've been to settings and turned off the sounds for it but it still does it. Then earlier today my auto rotation has stopped working. I've turned the phone on and off multiple times and I've toggled the auto rotation on and off multiple times and it's not working. Help me out everyone

    I've noticed that if you download applications that change the look and feel of your device, they sometimes leave files and settings behind when you uninstall them. I use clean master from the Play Store to clean my phone and get rid of all the empty files and folders and or settings that could have been left behind. Combining this with a phone restart usually cures all my problems.

    as for the auto rotation, I'm stumped.

    And for the auto rotation I have no clue what to do at all

    All of these systems have complex interactions, and digging in to find the cause of such behaviors may end up being unworthy of your time.

    If you're just curious, or plan to document your discovery, perhaps to make some app that corrects these problems, then you can consider this research.

    Otherwise, you reach a point where you really have to wipe the phone with a factory reset, occasionally with a flash of the stock ROM, get it "upright" - then re-implement the customizations you know work.

    The point highestgrade made is not only valid, it illustrates and underlying problem on the Android marketplace / platform. It's only $25 to get an account. People by the thousands are simply cobbling together "stuff" and posting it as an "app".

    There's 98,000 pieces of junk for every 10 competent applications.

    Some of that junk can actually be damaging.

    The point is this: if you're going to install, without realizing it, something that may likely cause problems like this - you're going to have to be prepared with a "crash recovery plan".

    - Yesterday I had 4 FCs and then a Bootloop, and over the last month I haven't gotten any of my facebook notifications/messages without a delay. 5 minutes - 8 hours or not at all. And my google sync is broken.

    I understand but I'm probably just gonna install the stock rooted rom

    That's a crash recovery plan!

    - I fixed the Google sync issue by removing my Google account and re-adding it. I just wish Facebook would correct the delay, or maybe the phone is going into a deep sleep mode and it's not waking when a new message is received.
