[][Sailfish X] Phone freezes and is non responsive [answered]

This morning I was browsing the internet. As every morning I check some news sites. But for some reason the device fully freezes and hangs.

The phone is non responsive to input. The screen is on and back light on full brightness. Holding the power button for multiple seconds doesn't reset or shuts the phone down.

Is there anyone that can help me to get my phone back to life? I had been charging over night so the battery is/was at 100%. Running it down can take a while.

Best regards, DDH

The same thing happened to me yesterday when using the browser. The phone could not be operated and restarted

Same here! This issue was created in 3.0, it never happend to me in any of the 2.x releases

Here, the developers still have to do a lot, I also hope that it is done in a short time

Today something similar on 3.0.3 Hossa. Wanted to check the rain forecast swiftly on WelkWeer, when SailfishX suddenly froze. After a while of unresponsiveness, I decided to restart the phone. Unfortunately it won't power up any more, no matter what I try: keeping in on a power cable, down button while starting, etc. Any other chances?

Answer to my own problem: after various tries with button combinations, it finally reacted to Power + VolumeUp, a short buzz and still a black screen. Then the Power button reacted as normal, booting up the phone. Everything seems fine now...

Oh, fine. The exact opposite of the answer before that one. Nice! ;)

Thanks for this solution. Just happened to me on my Xperia-X and Sailfish X First one ever for me so where a bit nervous first before I fund this. Thanks
