    O wait you didn't say you was rooted you say you hit the update and it did update but your still rooted . :eek: hmmmmm but if your still rooted just wipe data cache from the recovery . Yes complete THE WIPE ACTION FROM THE RECOVERY.

    It is real cute that you put this " :eek: ". Thanks. You are wonderful; I did a factory reset, and I could not believe it, my phone is almost back to normal! I called, and tested incoming called, all for 24 hrs, not even 1 single reboot!

    I was rooted before the OTA update; of course, I lost my root after the update; instead I got those random reboot, like 1 per every 15 min and every single incoming call. Till I cannot stand it any more, and with your kind suggestion, I bited the bullet, and the phone is totally back to working status. I still lost my root. I looked it up, the root is not as straight forward as using towelroot. I am going to just wait a bit.

    BTW, if you only have root, but no recovery installed, how do you go and erase davlik cache or other cache. I only know how to do it within either CWM or the other recovery :) . Thank you again, my phone is up and running, nice.



    BTW, I know update is to patch people from root, so I was NOT going to update, especially I found out the update is NOT 4.4.4, but just some minor enhancement. The darn problems is samsung put on the update screen every couple minutes, and when the phone left in the shirt pocket, the update menu is up, and when the update screen was mistakenly pressed, you are dead, the update is going. I saw the update, with the green android and the octagon turning turning, I was debating should I interupt it by turning power off? would that brick the phone? Oh well, I let it went through and that is what I got, lost my root, and random reboot.

    Sorry about root but since 5.0 has taken over minor updates are popping up but if you want you can just wait for the update rooting tool. Or just downgrade the firmware if available. But you will need to reroot

    Tks, I'll wait. The phone random reboot made the phone unusable. I am kind of scare of new thing to bring the random boot happen again. I really thank you for the suggestion, and now my phone is, hey, working again!
