It might not be a problem, the SGS2 gets quite warm when stressed for example.
I don't see how It's being stressed though, 1.5ghz is stock speed for the XE, and it never got hot on the stock Rom, even when I was running SPB shell 3D. Battery life has been dropping like a stone too. I've just rebooted it and it seems a bit better, I'll see how it goes.
Something making the CPU stick at max speed maybe.
Still doing it after a reboot
How can I see what is using the CPU?
have you tried turning on "USB Debugging", some phones have a bug where /init takes a lot of the cpu which turning on debugging seems to fix.
Seems to 'settled down' now all by itself
Its excellent news that a dev has added GPU acceleration to this phone - must make the phone much more pleasant to use. I really wonder why HTC didn't do it themselves; I can't think of a reason.
It has made the phone much more pleasant to interact with, It's a joy to use now.
So you bought a phone made by a stupid company?
It was cheap!
Do you know what the difference between the free and Pro versions of My Backup are? Looks like the free one needs a rooted phone and Pro, apart from offering online backup, will work with unrooted phones?
Haven't a clue to be honest mate, I just went ahead and bought the pro version. Worked really well
Cheers. I can't really find any other program that looks as good as My Backup Pro and that is free. I don't fancy using multiple programs that each backup a different thing so I'll probably buy this later on.
How long did it take you to S-OFF, root and put Android Revolution HD on?
iirc the difference with the free version is a backup won't work on a different phone.
So if I wanted to backup my HTC Sensation's texts etc and put them onto a different phone it wouldn't work? Pfft, no likelihood of that happening.
Not long at all, backing up and restoring all my messages etc was the most time consuming part
DreXeL - did a couple of reboots fix the battery drain and phone running hot?
I don't think rebooting it had any effect really, it just seemed to settle itself down after a while. It has still randomly got a bit hot again a couple of times, but nothing like when I first installed the rom.
Did everyone who's rooted their Sensation follow step 3 in the S-OFF guide called 'Step 3. To permanently root your Sensation'?
If custom roms are already rooted I don't NEED to follow step 3 do I?
