I am curious if you guys/gals find yourself pulling the battery for one reason or another daily. I seem to get force closes or just tonight my gallery stopped working stating I dont have enough memory which is complete BS. I am rooted and maybe stock is really the best way to be, I dont know. My excitement for the phone has really lowered since I have been rooted. I cant recall any if at all battery pulls in the 3 weeks prior.

The only time I've done a battery pull with this device is when I flashed the multi window tool on cleanrom which wasn't needed.

Rooting does nothing to your phone by itself. It is what you do with root that causes issues, like deleting the wrong stuff...

If you are doing a battery pull a day there is something really messed up

Shark your a expert like droidxcon. What do you think? Chomp SMS just failed again . I think I need it wipe completely and start over as the backup may have some things in it causing these crashes.

At this point I agree that a factory reset is in order.
I switch between stock rooted, beans 3, and cleanrom regularly, and I have no FC's or battery pulls.
Have you flashed a ROM and if so did you wipe caches and factory reset?
Did you mistakenly restore system apps with titanium backup?

Nope. Droid is going to walk me through unlocking and flashing beans rom. So I think I will save my contacts calendar and pics on to my pc and do a factory wipe. I'll stay stock for a few days and see if everything runs smooth.

You can make sure your calendar is synced with Google and you can export your contacts to the SD card.
That will put the file on the internal SD card which will get wiped with a factory reset so if you do that, move it to your external card.
The external card shouldn't be affected.

I think I am okay with wiping external card too. I have that exploit in place which tricks the internal into thinking its the SD. All I have on there is my music and pictures that are on itunes (music) and in picassa/facebook picture wise so im okay wiping that too.

I have never had to do a battery pull on my gnote 2. Never had any issues whatsoever. So far it's been one of the only phones that I've had for over a month with no battery pulls.

Yea something is bad on my end. I am new to this and got agressive with the calendar widget and the exploit to make the phone think internal is my sd card. I wonder if I downloaded something that is corrupt. I will do a complete total factory wipe right now as If I am selling it to someone.

Shark: Do you know the option I need to uncheck in root manager to avoid not being able to root again? I used the simple exploit version.

I haven't had to do a battery pull yet though I do battery-pulls on my Android device(s) once a week just out of habit. When I use an iDevice I do weekly restarts for the same, preventative-mainteance reasons. Does this help my Note 2? Not sure, but I'm a creature of habit and not likely to change.

Unfortunately I am not familiar with the exploit method as that became available some time after I rooted.
I can look around though.

I only do battery pulls to change the actual battery. I rotate between two to three batteries using an external charger. I don't remember the last time I actually plugged my phone in to charge.

It is a script so it should go away when you flash the new rom. I would make sure that everything you want to save is off of both the internal and external storage. Also you might want to check the xda thread on it pretty thoroughly to see what other mistakes people made
