Hello, this bug still persists both with miui and siyah kernels. Phone will randomly reboot or freeze....anyone else have this?

Had the freezing problem with 2.5.4 so reverted to 2.4.27. I didn't have the Siyah kernel installed then (just stock rooted) so looks like it's a problem with the rom.

No problems here about the called issue. No reboots, no other FC's only the known once.
You just have to use the CF-Root kernel and then install MiUI 2.5.11 again, with wiping everything and the problem
should be solved.

MiUI and Siyah looks like it's not fully 100% compatible.

First of all you need to know, or I need to know, what your current kernel is? Because CF root needs a specific
kernel file. Post the whole information under "kernel" and then I can give you a link to download.

Menu - Settings - About phone and scroll downstairs you'll see Kernel.

Don't have any random freezes/reboots here on my SGS2(with siyah 3.2.1). Did you use titaniumbackup perhaps to restore apps and settings? I've read a number of posts about ti backup causing problems after a restore.. Or maybe some of your apps that run in the background cause instability...

I've had some random FC's today. A couple happened when using spotify over the 3g network and one happened when my phone was in lockscreen. Missed a message because of it..

Make sure that you haven't undervolted your CPU too low. I exeperienced reboots/freezes then went to voltage settings and added 25mV to each frequency. Problem then went away.

Right now I have Kernel Version: 3.0.31-siyah-v3.2.1+gm@gm-mint

I get random reboots on 2.5.11 with MIUI kernel and I also did with the last couple of versions. It usually happens a short while after using the music player, spotify or other apps that use sound. It will either reboot on its own in my pocket, or when I try to unlock it. Sometimes it freezes while locked so I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds to reboot manually. It happens once or twice a day so it's getting pretty annoying.

If anyone can grab the logcat causing the reboots this would aid in greatly in reporting this. I don't have an SGS2 so I can't help in much in terms of reproducing this bug :/

Once a reboot happens. If you run
"adb logcat > log.txt" then
log.txt will have the logcat. Hopefully, the logcat will show the reboot. Or just plug your phone into the computer. Run "adb logcat >> log.txt" and do actions that you'll think will trigger the reboot / FC.

Then upload that log.txt to pastebin.

How do i run adb logcat on my phone?do i need an app? You have to be more specific Ibot cause I don't know where to go and run those commands

EDIT: I am not sure if I did it right...is this it?I used aLogcat application from Play Store after a crash/softreboot.
Also note that after this kind of reboots, some applications within folders in the launcher, show twice!

Just had another couple of reboots (after I had stopped listening to music with PlayerPro app) and this is the msg I got when I opened app "aLogcat" from play store:

E/MTPRx (12278): file kieswifi.dat is not found
E/MTPRx (14378): file kieswifi.dat is not found

Even though I have removed kies air I still get kies related errors...not sure if this is what causes the reboots

Here is a logcat that most definitly has the crash.

I had just stopped using spotify 10 minutes before it crashed. The last thing I did was set a timer for 12 minutes. Then I locked the device. When I tried to unlock it a few minutes later the lock screen had froze and the phone was getting very hot, and at that point I connected it to the computer and retrieved the logcat, surprisingly it was still able to do that even after it froze.

I hope you can take a look. Thanks!
