    Ran really smoothly for a time, but am getting a bunch of random shutdowns, and others I've talked to are experiencing the same.

    Going back to stock FF18.

    Thanks for the info. Guess I'll just keep my GB for now!

    I was gonna try to download onto my phone then transfer to my computer since i only have internet on my phone,well i only got to 9% then the download reset so i said forget it,i would like to have the signal and battery drain issue fixed but then again im not trying to brick this new s2 its not worth it to me, i guess sprint has me by the short and curlys for one more year,im in L.A. Btw and received the ICS upgrade last week only after clearing the Google framework and pulling the battery.

    My phone was shutting down when it went to sleep and wouldn't turn on unless I pulled the battery which made my battery drop a huge amount. So I went back to el29 and installed the ota for ff18 and it works great on my phone, I had it manually installed before. Below is what was happening to my battery.

    Guys, i thought we learned from the LEAKED ff18 install. These are bad updates. Wait for the ota update from sprint.

    But it's new and shiny and OTA updates take forever!

    I've learned absolutely nothing. If you follow the instructions , then you won't have to really worry about bricking your phone. People ASSUMED Samsung patched that brickbug. I knew they wasn't as they reluctantly claimed fault for the brickbug , and never made a public notice about it .

    horrible battery life, just like ff18. Everything else runs fine. I saw no difference at all with ff18.

    I came from FG31. It connects faster to 4G in the Washington DC area. Signal strength looks a little better as well. But this comes from only a couple hours of use. So far I'm pretty pleased.

    I upgraded to FH13 due to horrific battery life on FH18... i don't see much of an improvement, and I'm getting these shutdowns. Can anyone post me in the right direction of restoring? I carry a portable battery with me for the battery issue, but I cannot deal with a phone repeatedly shutting off on me during the day.

    Thanks

    @ ScottieHo, You might wanna learn more about restoring if you're going to be flashing leaks like FH13...

    This is sfhub's EK02 (very first Sprint OTA) factory restore that I used after trying out FH13. I did some other stuff to my phone, which screwed it up a little, thats why I went this route.

    BTW while the FH13 kernel or ROM appears to be buggy with the deep sleep and shut off issues, the modem is actually quite nice.

    I'm running the OTA FF18 kernel/ROM and the FH13 modem. Runs really smoothly for me.

    can I ask what method you used to go back to stock? I'm kinda a newb here. I want stock unrooted ff18. I thought there was a one click but all I can find is the rooted version. Plus I'm not sure I can use the ff18 one click on fh13

    See my earlier post. I had messed some other stuff up on my phone while testing things, so I just went back to factory restore EK02. I posted the link above.

    Anyone that needs to go back to ff18 look up qbking77 on YouTube for the epic 4g touch video of how to unroot/unbrick the epic 4g touch. Then you should just get the ota ff18 pushed to your phone automatically.

    Ok, when my screen powers down on FH13, it won't power back on until a battery pull. I hate leaks. Back to FF18 I go!

    P.S. - Samsung is doing a "great" job with their updates. It only bricked about 3,000 peoples phones. (sarcastic)

    My wifi isn't turning off when in sleep mode with FH13 killing my battery. It worked fine on FF18. wifi sleep settings are correct.

    FF18 leak matched FF18 official - only difference was adding root.
    FH13 one clicks were built in the same manner.

    Did you do the "nodata" or full restore? If you did the first I'll suggest trying the second and see if that helps.

    Back to EL29. FH13 has the same horrible battery life as FF18, and still shuts off anytime it connects to my cars Bluetooth. Over that last couple of days it averages 8% to 9% battery use per hour while sitting on my desk face down doing nothing. If I turn off WiFi it will still use 7% per hour.

    Are you guys flashing NO DATA or the FULL RESTORE when you are experiencing issues with the FH13 ROM?

    I would suggest flashing the FULL RESTORE instead of the NO DATA before you blame the ROM itself for whatever issues you are experiencing.

    I did the full wipe and restore and am still having the same problems. I think it's safe to say this "update"is a bust.

    I've been running Agat's tFH13 rom and his new kernel for the past week and am very pleased. This may be the first time that I don't end up reverting to GB.
