Strange Nokia 808 freezing issue
« on: January 10, 2021, 05:46:15 pm »
I bought a Nokia 808 on ebay.
The phone was advertised as not working so It was as advertised and I was hoping to just install Delight to get the phone back up and running- however it's not going very smoothly.

I've installed Delight 1.8, everything goes fine until the message saying the phone is in 'Test Mode' then it freezes and wont move on.
I pull the battery, the phone starts up and it goes through the phases - phase 1- then 2 then 3- all the way up to 5 then it reboots.

Once the phone has rebooted, it appears that Delight has been installed- its got all the menus ect etc- but when I go into 'Settings', the phone freezes for about 30 seconds and is unresponsive- after about 30 seconds, the phone responds again and I can access the settings ie 'Themes' etc.

When I open up the Camera app- it works fine, takes photos and videos with no issues- however when I  touch the small thumbnail on the botton left of the camera app to display the last photo taken the phone again freezes for about 30 seconds then closes the camera app.

The same thing happens when I access 'Gallery'- I have all the thumbnails of my photos but when I go to look at one, the phone freezes and boots me out of the Gallery.

I've been told this is an eMMC issue- but if that was the case then surely I'd not be able to flash the phone at all??

Any suggestions as to how to sort this issue out if possible?

I've tried quite a few things- likes of hard reset- reformatting the mass memory, reflashing with Delight, old stock firmware, Mohican- and they all show the same issue with freezing when accessing Gallery and Settings??

Any advice or suggestions would be welcome?

Could you try it without of SIM and SD card?
Did you format mass storage?

Thanks for your reply- I've tried it with an SD card and without an SD card. I've also reformatted the Mass Memory using my PC as well as using the phone's own reformatting tool. The phone still displays the same issues with Setting and Gallery.

So I guess it's a hardware issue

Yeah, probably is- the phone does everything except display the photos when you go into Gallery.

Even after going into settings when it freezes- once unfreezed you can still access the settings and change them.

I've a couple of working 808's currently trying a few things like backing them up and using the backup on the non working 808 just to see if that makes any difference - so far, no luck.

if it is possible to replace the faulty emmc, maybe it is even better to upgrade with a faster one, with larger capacity and more reliable than Hynix?
