    is anyone else having issues with system crashes on all the 5.1.1 Roms? Basically the phone freezes and the led is blinking green and red. I have to manually reboot phone by holding the power button.

    Some of the ROMs do that when the phone gets too hot.

    This was happening to me frequently as well. I later noticed it was while I was using the phone while charging most of the time. The problem is the kernel. Switching to the kernel from hroarks cm rc5 will fix it. I did that by pulling the boot.IMG out of that ROM zip and flashing it via an app called flashify. Fixed the problem immediately. All other kernels will lead to overheating issues on this phone, at least as of now.

    This ONLY happens to me on RC6/when I'm using the GPS and streaming YouTube. Definitely a heat issue.

    How do you do that? I was afraid to try and already had flashify available

    Well. You guys can you know, use kernel auditor to put you on the stock Clock speed of 1187MHz. The kernel by default is at the full overclock achievable. With the Kernel Auditor you can change the settings to keep the phone on the stock click speeds

    Has this been confirmed as the cause of the overheat issue?

    Seeing as though they're saying that switching to the old kernel makes it work just fine. I assume so. I doubt it's anyhting other than them being at a higher clockspeed then stock plus charging their phones.

    I'll test this theory and report back with results

    So I just confirmed that the inherent kernel in the AICP ROM is not overclocked at install, is still overheating, and I have never tampered with the max frequency. I wish your theory about overclocking was valid but unfortunately it is not. Any other ideas?

    That's strange. I never had any issues with overheating with the Cm 12.1 based ROMS. Only while charging. What's your ambient temperature like? Is it above the 90s? My phone would tend to overheat very badly when my ambient temps were hot.

    It is very seldom that it overheats without charging. When it is charging I can use the phone for maybe 5 seconds sometimes and it will shut down. I live in the mountains of Colorado and it has not been hot lately. Ambient temp doesn't seem to matter.

    Edit: its starting to seem like a voltage issue based on our findings

    I am currently running the pacrom 5.1.1 with the cm rc5 kernel and have been able to disable the CPU hotplug and the core control for the kernel using the built in kernel adiutor.

    I have been able to stay on my charger, hotspot and play order and chaos 2 at full speed without the thermal throttle kicking in.

    The hottest my phone got was 180 degrees Fahrenheit and still no lag. It stays at max frequency.

    You also need to set the battery to performance mode for this to work BTW.

    I've had no problems with the rc5 kernel. Its all other kernels that give issues.

    I'm now on the brokenos ROM with the included kernel and its the only way I've been able to move away from rc5 kernel without issue. Brokenos performs better by far than any other ROM btw

    Yeah I will probably have ever this phone a little while. Not bad for the price I paid for it either.
