    Hi.

    I've recently had a problem with phone freezing. Usually the reboot helped (battery out or power button for approx. 7 seconds), but once I went into the worrying "unable to boot" problem. After each attempt to boot the phone was stuck just after the animated Samsung logo.

    Here is how I fixed it (may work if you have a similar problem):
    - boot into recovery mode by powering on your device (Power key only!) and pressing Volume-Up and Home key on the splash screen showing "Samsung Galaxy R" static logo (release Power key, press Vol-Up+Home until you see "booting recovery" in white on top of the screen)
    - choose option "Wipe cache" (Vol-Up/Vol-Down to move across options), confirm (Home key)
    - reboot

    Note: you will loose (as far as I found out by now):
    - date & time (can be automatically updated by the network)
    - stored WiFi connection configuration

    Good luck!

    linussk, my phone is the European version (I hope this is what you mean by region), but it should work for all versions. This has been the standard feature of Samsung firmware for some time now.

    Thanks Gregu. I faced the same problem today and on googling lot of users speculated it to be a motherboard issue. Thankfully I came across your post and its working fine now.

    Cheers!

    UPDATE : Actually that dint solve the issue. I have tried everything possible - flash stock ROM, Flash other ROMs, Factory reset, wipe cache, dalvik cache, wipe battery stats. The only thing i dint do is throw my phone.

    One thing i observed is the phone shutsdown when there is low signal or fluctuation in signal. I'm gonna take it to the dreaded service center tomo and i think today is the last day with my galaxy R.

    My phone has been dead for about 4 months. Searched and found this page followed the direction and it worked like a charm. My phone took a swim in the sink and i thought for sure it was a goner. Thanks for the help.
