    Hi guys, i am running the latest wajk Rom on my 16gb mis 2s and today the battery drained too fast. I plugged in the charger and the phone overheated to "painful to touch" temp within minutes. I then took off the charger and plugged the battery alone on battery charger. The battery did not overheat and started charging. After an hour i put the battery back and switched on. The phone booted and initially everything seemed ok but the batterry drain was realy fast and again the phone overheated. I switched to another rom and the same thing happens. In fact even when the phone is off if i plug the charger the phone overheats but not the battery.
    Anybody has an idea what it could be?

    I am doing this as we speak. Does anyone know what part of the chipset is in the lower half of the phone just below the touch buttons? There is the heat source.

    No idea, but there may be a short, or a resistor out of place.

    Sorry to hear dude. Good luck getting it repaired.

    Its a shame, This is the Point when the user thinks, if I had a Samsung (or even apple) this will be easy to get fixed.
    Xiaomi need to think about a quick and easy way to help in cases like this if they are to make inroads into the mindset of users outside of asia

    I must say though that everything inside looked top notch. Xiaomi must bring repair facilities in Europe and the US if they want to achieve anuthing in thiese markets.
