    My phone will not restart or power off. The screen goes black, but the buttons at the bottom of the screen stay lit and the phone will not power back on unless I pull the battery. Any ideas? I am running Darkside Evolution V3, but my last GS2 did the same thing with a stock rom.

    I don't know if it will help but have you tried DARKSIDE.CACHE.WIPE ?

    Have you tried a factory reset?

    I tried a facfofy reset, but it would not reset, so I did a fresh install to no avail. I will try wiping the cache.

    Nothing seems to be working. If I hold the power button long enough, it will reboot, but the lights never go off.

    If it was doing the same thing when you were running stock, maybe its time to get a new one with your warranty.

    So the Darkside Cache Wipe didn't work?
