    Hey all, just wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue; also, sorry for the long explanation. I rooted my phone last week or so, and the other day backed up the imei using nvback, along with using the synergy method. I also wanted to try to back up using qpst, but when I tried to access the hidden menu, my phone froze for a minute then rebooted. After rebooting it would go back to my lock screen like normal, but would freeze again. I noticed that before freezing, the alarm clock icon (the one that says an alarm is enabled) in my notification bar would disappear and reappear insanely quick. I tried uninstall apps I had just installed, along with wiping cache and dalvik cache, but neither worked; it just kept freezing. I ended up restoring from a nandoid backup, and that seems to have fixed it for the most part, but it will still disappear then reappear with about a second every minute or so. ---On a side note, my phone rebooted in my pocket today, but I don't know if that's related to the issue---.

    Has anyone else run into this issue and/or maybe know how to fix it? As far as I can tell, it's not really affecting the usability of my phone, and it's something I can definitely live with if need be, but it's a little annoying to see the icon do that multiple times while using the phone.

    P.S. It doesn't happen when I disable the alarms, which should be expected.

    P.P.S. I put this in this section as the Verizon root section seems kind of dead. Sorry if I should have put it in there. :thinking:

    Hello tensazen!
    Yeah, I moved your thread into the root forum for Verizon ;)

    What rom are you running? And was your nandroid backup the stock, rooted rom, or a different one?


    Edit: curious as to the guide you used to backup your IMEI.? I did the same thing but don't recall doing the qpst thing. :thinking:

    Ah, hopefully someone will see the thread. I'm on stock, but rooted and everything. I don't have the link to the guide, but I saw it in a few sites, and the results seemed pretty positive. The guide said to get into a certain menu, and change one of the usb settings temporarily, then run the qpst backup. Sorry I couldn't really go into more detail, but that's all I remember of the guide. The issue started as soon as I tried to get into the hidden menu through the dialer.

    Is this guide akin to what you used for the qpst?:
    [Backup] QPST Backup of your NV data (IMEI) US Variants

    If so, how far into that guide for qpst did you get before the phone started acting wonky?

    Have you tried a completely different rom to see if the issue persists ?

    Yep, that has the same steps for qpst as the guide I was going to use. The phone started messing up as soon as I finished entering the code to get to the hidden menu. I haven't tried another rom yet, but I was planning on trying cm 11 at some point. The odd thing is that the problem has somewhat persisted through a restore of a nandroid backup from before I tried it.
