    galaxy s2 overheating and draining battery

    my galaxy s2 keeps overheating and draining the battery life. I use battery bot app to track battery life. The app tells me that the media is using 38% sometimes up to 75% of power. I dont know if this is the source of the problem. it happened when i switched a dying battery with a full one, immidiatly the phone began to tell me that a full battery would last just under 3 hours. i was able to fix it temporarily by forcing to stop all of my apps but it seems to go back to the same problem after i reboot the phone.

    model number GT-I9100
    android version 4.1.2
    baseband version I9100XXLS8
    kernel version 3.0.31

    The Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 has some serious known issues running 4.1.2. In some cases, it has really destroyed the battery. I don't know EXACTLY what it does, or how it runs so bad, but I think, in some cases it can be fixed by flashing a new firmware.

    What country are you in?

    You can go to the SamMobile Firmware site and download the latest firmware for your phone. It will take a long time to download, but if they have your country download it and read the second on how to flash using Odin.

    Please note, if you flash using Odin, you run the risk of losing your data. Make sure you backup pictures, music, movies and what not.
    How to use Odin!
