I suppose it's my own fault really. I know even though I'm running a 2.0.1 rom that I should have wiped my data anyways, but hey, the updater said if you were coming from 2.1... so i kept data.
So I was running adamz smoked 4.1 blu rom @ 1 ghz no problems. bored wanted to try sholes just for kicks and I get this:
reboot 1 = adam 4.1 -> sholes 2.0.5. did not wipe data. opened running applications and it rebooted.
reboot 2 = booted up unlocked screen open app tray froze and had to battery pull.
Reboot 3 = boot up tried to access app tray for setcpu and froze at blank screen had to battery pull.
Reboot 4 = loaded up got to home screen tried to use add shortcut to access astro for smuupdater and froze again. battery pull
Managed to open a browser that thankfully was on the desktop and downloaded the smupdater again and ran it from dolphin browsers download list.
Wiped data this time so lets see what happens. little bummed out at having to wipe. Might go back to adamz anyways as the smoke + blu theme is killer.
but ill give it a try for a day or two.
