  1. My phone stucks at second reboot,versoin 5.5.9,Everything works fine at the first boot, all applications are optimised,i can download and install apps. but if i reboot my phone it stucks at the samsung loggo,i need to do a format wipe and then it works but i need to make the steps again,install again the apps ,whats the solution?

  2. Hi, I’m facing the same issue. I’ve found a half-way solution.
    Go to dialer app > setting > [last position on the list – I don’t have english version – don’t know this word] > turn “Enable proximity sensor” off.
    Now make sure you didn’t turn “End call with power button” somewhere in generall settings.
    Ok, make a call. Display remain on (but frozen). You can turn the display on/off by using power button. To end a call, go somewhere else with home button. Now You can swipe down status bar from the top of your screen. There’s your running call. Hit “end” and it’s done. I know – it’s no solution. But it’s something!

  3. After installing the latest ROM when someone calls or I call…the screen goes black…though I can see the call is still connected. I can listen to them and so they..however…screen remains black…NOTE 2 – thats the issue.

  4. i hav rooted device as required but cannot get the rom n gapps into the root file on my external sd that is in my device. does the root have to be on the device or can it be on the external sd like i have it now.
    many thanks

  5. after installation, device after reboot just view “Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT N7100” and not boot comletly. i wait for about 15 min but nothing.
