N7000 Music Player Problems: Both Neutrino and PowerAmp (each separately installed on completely fresh wipe/flashes when the other is not), when randomly playing my 950-odd songs, suddenly cut out after a number of songs - sometimes 1, sometimes 4 or 5, sometimes 20.
By cut out I mean that sound suddenly stops coming through the headphones (usually towards the end of a song, but not always). Both players think they are still playing clicking on pause causes them to think they are now pausing.
Clicking on play again, however, causes no music to come through the headphones, and both players become unresponsive. Android does NOT tell me they are unresponsive (but trying any other interface actions fails to do anything). Killing the process of the player then puts the phone in a 100% CPU loop on one of the cores.
Since there is no identifiable/killable process now causing this CPU loop, reboot is the only recourse.
At first I thought it was a problem with Neutrino - but once PowerAmp started doing the same, I tried the following:
- Disabling all "headset button" actions (and thus lock screen widget)
- Disabling the "Direct Volume" facility (PA doc says that some custom ROMs aren't yet compatible)
- Complete wipe and reflash of EVERYTHING - and I mean EVERYTHING: Internal and external SD Cards, /system partition, as well as the "standard" wipe locations.
- Ensure the DSP manager app has all things switched off
- Check all my MP3s on other devices (well, not ALL, but the ones the players have stopped on)
No joy!!! The default music player in the ROM has simply stopped working altogether (it DID work since the last flash - now it doesn't. At least Android tells me about that and gracefully stops it) -
Google Play Music is currently playing through the phones to see if that has the same problem.
Anyone else seen anything like this?
