Power + Home buttons stop working at random on WD7.1
« on: December 20, 2014, 12:29:40 PM »
Hi,

Sorry for spamming bugs.. and such however :/ I have encountered very strange error recently it happend yesterday and today when I was installing one ipa and someone called me, so.. it looks like sometimes the home button and power stop responding and I cant do anything! I would be glad if someone could suggest me what should I do.. waiting untill device would discharge on its own will take a lot of time :(

I only installed the OTA update for Whited00r 7.1.4

In the middle of installing a .ipa is a bad time to get a call sadly, as the phone is being heavily taxed on memory and CPU power because it is unzipping files (sometimes large ones!).  It probably just froze and didn't know what to do ;)  You may have to manually delete the app though, if it didn't finish installing.  (I can find a tutorial if that is the case)
