I cant reproduce it. I have just rebooted 2 vegas side by side. 10-15 times with a fresh ics install on both, then 10-15 times with one having vega boost (no swap) and then 10-15 times with one running vega super boost (with swap). All times they booted fine and identically. I dont ever see a white screen on boot.
This is exactly what happens when I boot. I press the power button, the backlight on the lcd comes on for second then goes off for a second then comes back on and about 5 second later I see the the vegaics by cass, kernel by Ejtagle message on a black background, a few seconds later I get the animated Vegaics logo.
Have you tried using a different SD card for you swap patition, or no sd card (just for testing)?
Yes I tried with a 16GB card in place of my current 32GB. Same thing happens except now I get the backlight on lcd comes on goes off, comes on (exactly as per your test) and continues the boot sequence. When this occurs
I now get the freezing, but it does not occur immediately. I could be browsing this forum via Tapatalk or stock browser on Tabletroms or reading an email and suddenly when I go to scroll the screen or tap to open a thread/email
the screen is frozen and it requires a reboot to get out of it. The freezing can happen after 10mins or 30mins but is usually somewhere in between. I have on occasion managed to keep holding the back button and pressing the start button several times and came out of it as if it had been asleep, but I usually just reboot
as the buttons are so fragile the constant operating may wreck them.
If on the other hand the screen backlight comes on, dims slightly and continues with the boot sequence I can use the Vega for hours at a time without freezing happening.
The thing is that this only started happening when I installed Beta 1, ICS Alpha 3 nor Honeyice Chimera did not exhibit this freezing.
As I stated in a previous post my original Vega (purchased May 2011) had to be sent away for repair and the Vega I received back was not the same as the Serial No. inside the door
was missing and when I opened it up the serial inside was different from the one I had recorded and which was on the repair docket. But dmesg showed no bad nand blocks on
my original and I have not been able to get a dmesg on this Vega as every time I try it freezes.
Edit: Now freezing no matter which way the boot sequence occurs. Reverted to Alpha 3 and no freezes, weird or what. Now going to try HI Chimera.
