Android 4.0.4 for GS2, even worse than 4.0.3

[ Edited ]

Since yesterday I updated to Android 4.0.4, My phone has deadly slept for two times.

It powered off automatically--even I was not aware when it shut down--and could not power on unless I took the battery off and put it back to turn the phone on.

I had such experience on Android 4.0.3 but it was not so frequent--about once or twice per week.

Very disappointed with this new ROM.

How to sovle this problem?

Waiting for Jelly Bean, although ATT will not release it probably.

First let me say the only way to prevent the sleep of death is to root the phone, but the problem with that is the camera won't work properly. Going back to official 4.0.3 is quite easy and doesn't require going back to 2.3.4.

I'm having the same problem, come on ATT! My GS2 was great with 4.0.3, but shuts down with 4.0.4

It is now March 8th, and my phone kills itself at least 4-5 times a day. Constantly having to hard reset my phone is really getting old. And what's fun is that I just used my warrenty, with all of 8 days left, to replace my original GS2 that had a faulty USB hub. The refurbished phone they sent me came preloaded with 4.0.4, and I am about ready to throw it at a wall and buy a Nexus 4. Good job AT&T, your need to install endless amounts of bloatware and the inability to let the OEM manufacture put out updates, and instead doing it yourself, has killed a otherwise wonderful phone. GG.

It is the firmware's problem rather than the hardware. Sending you another GS2 won't solve the problem. I flashed a third part ROM which runs flawlessly even though that broke my warrenty. After my two year contract end, I will see goodbye to AT&T.
