    GS2-can't lock screen/reboots constantly

    Hello,

    So I've searched everywhere for a solution to my problem but haven't had any luck. My phones about a year old. I rooted my phone a while ago and have run several different roms since and had no problems until recently.

    Problem:
    Just recently the power/lock screen button started acting up. Whenever I touched the button(without pressing it) the power options would display on my screen. Its progressively gotten worse. Pressing the button won't activate the lock screen. It just causes the power options to display for a brief second then it reboots by itself. The only way I can get the screen to lock is to let it time out but when I try to unlock it, the screen lights up for a brief second and the phone reboots itself. Currently, the only way I can use my phone is to not let the screen time out which isn't always effective. Sometimes it reboots mid use. also, my phone will not completely turn off. It just reboots whenever I try.

    Solutions I've tried:
    -removed battery and sim card
    -Cleared the Dalvik Cache(worked for a bit, now doesn't help at all)
    -factory reset and SD card wipe
    -Re-installed the rom
    -Tried a different kernel
    -tried a different rom

    My phones pretty much useless in its current state so any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I'm open to all suggestions.

    Thanks in advance.



    Carrier: AT&T
    Model Number: SAMSUNG-SGH-I777-rooted
    Android version: 4.1.2 AOKP JB
    Kernel version: 3.0.15-CM-g034a838
    Build number: i777 JB (4.1.2 JZ054K) Build 11.9.2012

    Not that its any consolation, but I have exactly the same issue. I am also on AT&T. However I have not rooted my phone. I was actually considering rooting it because I thought it might fix the issue.

    Re: GS2-can't lock screen/reboots constantly

    Welcome to the forum! Im not sure what it could be, but my suggestion would be to return your phone to stock, then do a factory reset. That should clear things up. Don't forget to first back up your contacts to Google, back up any text msgs you may want, as well as your apps. Im assuming since the OP is rooted, that you're using Titanium Backup. If not, download it first, because you'll be able to back everything up using this app, and easily restore your text msgs and apps that way.
    Good luck and let us know how you make out.
