Hello! In these two days I have to force reboot phone approximately every 30 minutes. I thought this can resolve my issue, but I think it's not that. I left my device always on (didn't let it to go sleep) and after 30 minutes display just freezed and was not interactable. Any idea what is this? OS version - 3.0.2

UPD: today it freezed whilst listening to music. Can it be kernel when suspending cpus?image description


running command

mcetool -searly

is helping. No freezes or black screens. Seems to me that there something fishy in kernel sleep. So workaround is temprorary lower it. Power consumption will increase

It was on 3.0.1 also, but I thought it will be fixed on new update. But I thought it was a proximity sensor issue (can't turn phone on), but today I got freeze when display was on

no issues here. sfos on xa2 works fine, the update to 3.0.2 had a postive Impact concerning stability. i used the proximity sensor workaround you mentioned. my suggestion try to apply the workaround or reflash the phone.

Not only XA2. My Xperia X has same symptoms as you described. This started show up only after Oulanka system update. Though I have 3rd party apps and librarys installed with developer mode activated, so this doesn't apply to factory reseted and upgraded "vanilla" SFOS Xperia devices.

@nepomuk I've applied workaround, but it's not helped me. Running mcetool -searly helped. Walked for 4 days without force reboot.
