I've been having an issue on my Galaxy S4 following the 4.3 update whereby it will occasionally reboot the phone then go into a reboot loop. If connected to a charge the loop will stop and the battery will be fine (e.g. at 80%).

Now one thing I've noticed in trying to diagnose this via logcat is that the following message:

13:37:54.600 AbsListView unregisterIRListener() is called

occurs about 26 times a second. Is this normal behavior? If not how can I find and eliminate the cause?

  • I observer similar problems with my S4 (after 4.3 update, random crashes and then boot loops). I am not expert in Android internals, but the "AbsListView" seems like some image resolution issue: stackoverflow.com/questions/16445635/… My guess is it has nothing to do with it. Still your question is valid! Jan 7, 2014 at 23:17
  • For others wondering - my problems disappeared after servicing the phone in official Samsung repair shop. So maybe the 4.3 upgrade was just a coincidence. The report from repair indicated battery being replaced and software upgrade (but I don't believe the last one, as exact the same build version is reported in Settings). Jan 26, 2014 at 21:53

    From this question on SO, it seems an issue affecting some of Samsung devices, and looks like a debug log. Nothing serious.

try to replace in the adapeter:

view = context.LayoutInflater.Inflate(Android.Resource.Layout.SimpleSpinnerItem, null);


view = context.LayoutInflater.Inflate(Android.Resource.Layout.SimpleSpinnerItem, parent, false);

  • Sorry Chris but I no longer own the phone this query was about. Also I wouldn't have known how to implement your answer in any case.

  • Sorry, but this site is not about Android programming. Your answer will be helpful for Android programmer, but for end-user, they cannot do anything to solve this issue.
