    Hey everyone,

    I turned my phone on after getting out of the train and the backlight has been flickering uncontrollably extremely fast ever since when the screen is on. I googled the problem and I am not sure really what to think. I've never had this before - haven't installed any new tweaks within an hour before it started and now so nothing has changed. Any ideas? I read a post on reddit and the person with this problem said eventually it went away.

    Any ideas? Thanks guys!

    It could just be a hardware failure.

    So I googled the problem. It is actually common for the screen to flicker around the edges. I did what worked for other people: plugging it into the charger, walking away for an hour, and then trying to use my phone. The screen didn't flicker anymore.

    Probably a software bug somewhere. Not hardware related I don't think.
