    So last night at about midnight my phone got super hot. I went to a lower kernal hoping that would help, and when I went into PE settings to change it every single process I have on my phone FC'd. It was one FC window after another...Luckily though I had a nandroid for 5.0 (was running 5.0.2 with epic blue theme) So any thoughts as to why this happened? I mean my battery has gotten hot before, but this happened with the phone just sitting idle.

    I'm answering only because I don't want to leave you hanging here. I have never had the experience you just described and I have no idea what would have caused it, but I'm pretty sure it's not the 5.0.2 update.

    it couldve been a number of things, changing the kernel is a good idea. also, when you install pe, did you do a complete wipe and did you make sure you didnt restore any system info form previous roms?

    Thanks! I only posted here because it has never happened with any other ROM that I have ever used. Just thought maybe someone had any thoughts...

    I always do a clean wipe. I came from UDGingerbread. I didn't wipe between 5.0 5.1 & 5.2 though...maybe try a clean install of 5.2? Have been running 5.0 all day without any troubles...

    Thanks for your responses guys...

    Was the phone charging while it got hot? I have noticed every so often if my phone is charging the kernel runs at max capacity and the phone gets hot fast. I don't know what causes it but a simple reboot has solved it for me personally. Now if you weren't charging, were you running any apps?
