    Alright, I need someone's brain for this one.

    Phone is rooted, romed. Running great, etc. etc., I go to plug my phone in for a small charge, and when I went to take it off, the battery charge light was still on. Weird.

    I hit power button. Nothing. Battery charge light remains on. I do a hard reboot, and it came back up fine, no issues.

    What would cause it to freeze up like that, any ideas?

    Not sure, but I've had mine rooted for a month or so and the exact same thing just happened to me a couple days ago, the only difference being I charged mine overnight.

    That has happened twice to me, once while rooted and once when it was stock. All you can do is pull the battery and reboot.

    Next time it happens plug it in to a pc and grab a logcat. The kernel's probably not dead and will tell why it died.

    Mine did the same thing last night and last week. When it locks no clock to wake me up. I'm rooted and romming. Explain what we need to look for when plugging up to pc. What and where is a logcat Gbhil?

    Haven't tried myself yet, but according to documentation I've seen this will work:

    plug into computer
    open adb shell
    run this command:
    Code (Text):
    1. logcat
    copy from your terminal to notepad
    then run this
    Code (Text):
    1. reboot
    post the output that you copied so someone can dig through and maybe see why it crashed.
