    Are you sure your battery stats are showing correctly? Are you running a Rom and if so which one?

    I'm going to go with the suggestion in the other thread. Odin back to stock. If it continues, get it exchanged as it definitely isn't right.

    Yes IIRC, it should be a .tar file though and not a .zip file.


    Headed out for the night though so if you don't feel comfortable it might be best to wait until someone is around to help. :)

    right on brother! im unrooted and trying to get the phone to give me the dead batt error. no dice so far. i noticed the error after i installed overlclock widget. so i deleted it but the phone still gave me dead batt error during calls. maybe overclock widget changed phone settings then i deleted it and changes to phone remained? idk ima try to root it myself. the phone did give me a overheat icon right now ,again. and it was just warm not hot like ive felt it before with out the overheat icon. im taking it back to sprint tomorrow.

    Well, for what it's worth, the main post was updated on 12/7 so only the posts from 12/7 until today are truly accurate.


    That is the easiest way to root it though.

    Nope, flashing ROMs would go through the Clockwork Recovery aka 3-finger death grip aka pushing and holding the lower volume key, camera button and power key from a full power down.

    When you get it rooted again I'll walk you through everything :)
