    Can't turn phone on unless through CWM

    When I shut my phone off, there are quite a few times where I have to go through recovery to turn it back on, instead of just using the power button. If I just let it "timeout", it doesn't happen as frequently.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Wow that is a stange one. Some more detail about what ROM you are running and how you flashed it would help us help you.

    Also what was the last thing you did to your phone before this started happening.

    If you flasheda ROM you might have got a bad down load. Download the file again before you flash it again.

    This is pretty bizarre. Honestly, I would recommend downloading and flashing your current setup again. If this fails, I would Odin back to stock and start all over again.

    First time I've seen this issue/bug reported. Let us know how it goes.

    It almost sounds like a kernel issue.

    I am (was) on SC2.9.2. Was doing a lot of NinjaMorphs. Flashed EB01 MMS.APK, EB01_SuperClean_Batt_Framework.zip. Went back to SC 2.9 without all of NinjaMorphs and w/o the referenced zips and appears to be more stable. However, my screen freezes up occasionally, requiring a battery pull. I had also flashed NitroVivid, but am not on it now after going back to SC 2.9.
    Any suggestions as to what is causing the screen to freeze up?

    Which voodoo kernel are you running?

    On touchwiz ROMs, I was having trouble with the mesmerize based kernels locking up a static image on the screen, but this only affected a small chunk of users, apparently.

    Well then I don't think that's it.

    I would try reflashing everything again as a cure-all for any software problems.

    Yesterday, I did a factory reset, reflashed my nandroid backup that had only SC 2.9 on it, and that seemed to resolve the issue regarding the phone not rebooting normally. I'm willing to bet that most of it was caused by all the NinjaMorphing I was doing. The screen still freezes up occasionally,but I'll work through that. Thanks for your quick and informative responses.

    On a side note, are there any additional kernels that I would be able to flash? I remember reading somewhere that they aren't available yet.
    THANKS AGAIN!!!!
