Well, it had been months after I had rooted my android (HTC Desire HD) that a peculiar problem arose- freezing. Freezing made everything unusable including power button and the only way to recover was to remove the battery.
Initially the freezing was rare and I ignored it but quite lately the problem became a real pain in the a**. You can imagine the frustration with phone freezing a dozen times in a day and occurring every time you browse, play a game or read a message or in short, randomly.
I read about how some apps may be the reason of this and removed all my recent apps but that proved to be in vain. Though I hate to go through cumbersome tasks such as factory reset, I did it anyway and the problem disappeared. Looping this cycle four time, I gave up and was ready to throw my phone away because no solution on any forum made sense.
Lately, when I was playing with CPU frequencies, it froze my phone and bingo! I realized the problem. Basically, I had been a over-clocker from start but lately, had switched to “performance” governor and pushed it to 1.8Ghz which increased my freezing frequency.
So guys, if you are overclockers, please make sure to know your phone’s limits before pushing them to insane frequencies.
