I installed MadTeam's CyanogenMod 7 on my Galaxy 5 few weeks ago. First time I root and install a mod, but fairly uneventful process. My phone got way faster, and except for maybe getting a little slower to connect to the wifi and/or obtain an IP address, it is better in every possible aspect.
What is bugging me is that it is prone to restart itself randomly, possibly many times a day, except that I don't notice it most of the time. Just now I noticed because it was in front of my keyboard, and it vibrates when showing the boot animation. The boot itself is quite fast, so it really never posed any problem so far, and it never restarted mid-use, only when inside my pocket or laying on the table (ie. during standby). I just worry that it may become too common or happen during a call, while texting or something.
I fiddled a lot with the configs after installing it to discover what it had to offer, but I avoided changing anything that wasn't UI/usability-related. I took the performance settings warning seriously.
Any possible explanation? Or is this somehow normal, like a hard memory cleaning procedure? I did some seaching, but nothing about such issue.
- Phone: Samsing GT-I5500 (Galaxy 5)
- Mod: CyanogenMod-7-20120912-MADTEAM-galaxy5 (Android 2.3.7)
Updated mod to 20121001 version.
Got two unresponsive events (once unlocking screen and another one activating wifi) which caused phone restart seconds later, and according to phone uptime counter, an spontaneous reset 2AM last night. Within 48h.
Wifi got awfully bad after update (same baseband I5500LUYJPE), took dozens of tries to get an IP, but apparently it was solved by forgetting the network and typing the password again.
In short: wifi improved, random restarts remain.
