I have a rather old Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. A week or so ago it was having some serious problems which rendered it fairly useless, so I installed CyanogenMod on it.

Since then, sound will randomly completely stop from all sources. Various apps, music, even phone calls. Nada.

I'm fairly certain this is a software issue as the sound worked fine before flashing CyanogenMod and a reboot temporarily fixes the problem (and is so far the only solution I've found).

I'm fairly sure it doesn't have to do with the headphone state as neither speaker nor headphones works when the sound is broken, yet both work immediately after a reboot.

Constantly rebooting my phone so I can actually receive calls is rather sub-optimal. What can I do?

  • As a side note, I suppose I could theoretically go back to stock, but, aside from this problem, I'm vastly preferring CM, so I'd like to stick with it if possible. – John Sep 12 '14 at 21:21
  • What CM ROM have you used? If it's a nightly, you might have to replace it with the latest stable release, or just wait for the bug to be fixed in a later release. – Dan Hulme Sep 12 '14 at 22:18
  • @DanHulme I'm using 10.2.1 which appears to be both stable and the latest version for my device. – John Sep 13 '14 at 19:25
