So I have been using Omega v12 (23/09/2013) on my Galaxy S4 i9505 for a week or so absolutely no problems what so ever.
Then last night my phone just ran out of battery and safely shut down when I plugged it in and turned it on everything seemed fine until it got to the lock screen it was quite unresponsive and once i unlocked it the screen was black but showing the notification bar and it keeps bringing up a dialog box saying gmail has stopped working which once you press it it reboots. one time it said system UI has stopped working.
I can pull down the notification bar but i cannot do anything in there if you try to get to settings or for example turn bluetooth off it reboots. i was able to get the multitask menu up once where i could access google search and it allowed me to browse the web it even opened chrome but as soon as i closed it it rebooted again.
I really dont want to wipe data, keep that as my last option.
I have not seen anyone else with a similar problem i have seen a few people have 'system ui' crashes but they seem unrelated.
They were talking about installing something called '3Minit Framework'. I have no idea about this or what it does and i don't know how i would get it onto my phone, I have not tried to see if i can plug it into the computer and copy data i might try that when i get home from work...
On a different thread it was suggested to just reinstall from zip without wiping data. It didn't work.
I would like to maybe try flashing a different kernel but I don't know if right at this stage its safe to do so or even if it will make any difference?
If yes, what kernel would you guys suggest???
Any assistance would be much appreciated!
