    Unhappy My Galaxy S2 freezes very frequently.

    My Galaxy S2 ( I9100GT) that i bought from Hong Kong on 2nd June 2012, was running absolutely fine. Last week, suddenly, i noticed, that it started freezing.

    - I had to restart it and then again it would freeze.

    - later it would not restart. So I removed the battery and inserted back again. then again it would start

    - It would freeze at the logo sometimes.

    - sometimes it will hang a few minutes after boot up.

    - Later on , it would not start even if i press the power button. I had to leave it without the battery, then it would

    What all I Did trying to solve the problem. --

    - I reset the phone to factory settings two times. But it still behaved the same way.

    - Later it started working, and did not freeze for a long time. But when i used the video maker app, it froze again. I think any resource consuming app make it freeze. I had used this app previously without any problem.

    - then the same story, it would freeze again and again, till i keep it for a long time without the battery.

    My Phone , galaxy S2 , has the Android ICS installed. It was already installed when i bought it.

    Please someone let me know, what exactly is the problem. Is it a hardware problem, or a software problem. I have a one year warranty, but i have to travel to Hong kong , to give it to samsung service center.

    Also i dont understand why this problem started suddenly. please help!!!

    Can you list the model number underneath the battery or under Settings, About?

    Re: My Galaxy S2 freezes very frequently.

    The only thing that I could suggest is to reflash the phone using Odin 1.85 on your PC. Either that or delete all of your apps and reinstall them one by one.

    The factory reset should have fixed the freezing so the firmware may be corrupt.

    If you have an external sdcard in your phone you could try removing it to see how the phone reacts.

    Hi Ollie, , i do not have any extra SD card. I did delete all the apps. Still the hanging occurs.

    About reflash of the phone -- i just went through some posts about how to flash the phone with Odin 1.85.

    First thing, will it void the warranty. My phone is still in warranty.

    Another thing, do I need a ICS firmware (ROM) for hong kong ( since i bought my phone from hongkong) ?

    Do i follow this procedure to flash my phone --

    Rightclick Odin and select Run as Administrator.
    Put your phone into download mode. Press and hold volume down+power button until it reboots. If it asks you press volume up to confirm.
    Your PC may start installing drivers. If it does allow it to completely finish.
    Once in download mode plug the factory USB cable into your phone and then into your PC. Do not use a USB hub.
    Odin should recognize your phone. The top left box in Odin should turn yellow and ID Com will display some random numbers.
    Make sure only Autoreboot and Freset are checked on the left.
    Select the PDA button.
    Navigate to the tar file you unzipped earlier and select it.
    Press Start.
    Do not interrupt the process, bump the USB cable, etc. or your phone will be a paper weight.
    It will reboot when it is done.

    BUT i dont have the firmware.

    Also if you think the following info is relevant, i wanted you to know that -


    I had purchased my phone frm Hong Kong. When I first started my GS2 , it showed the Software Update notification. It asked me to choose the country. I chose India. ( was that wrong)
    At that time there were no updates.


    My wifi is always switched ON at home. So , could it have been, that my S2 got updated to some incorrect firmware.

    It's kind of impossible to get such bad firmwares.
    You should really try the Odin method.

    It will not void your warranty if you are flashing official Samsung softwares.

    If your phone isn't locked to a Telecom and you can use any sum provider there is then you can flash any region you want to. I can get you the software that you are looking for. GingerBread or ICS.
