    Hey guys, I been flashed under 3.3 since it was released and had no issues up until the last couple days.

    Couple weeks ago, I woke up to a phone call and when I grabbed my phone it was overheating at 146* not sure how long it had been doing that...

    Well I was under JDLFG 1050Mhz kernel so I downgraded to the 850Mhz.

    Been running fine until the last few days... It's been sluggish, random reboots, and just randomly running hot.

    Well, right now, it's only been off the charger since around 10pm and the extended battery is down to 60%. What also bugs me how how the back of the phone is and SetCPU is showing 107.6*.

    I thought it's some app running it hot in the background, but nothing really is, nothing even over 20% usage.

    My question is... It was running so smooth and perfect before... Why the sudden change? Should I change the kernel or am I going to have to reflash (darnit..)?

    Are you running a low or high voltage scaling?
