Just started having that problem with my Pre 2 today. Any clues?
I know that mine was fine until I loaded Govnah and I had my old Pre+ profiles set on there. Wonder if one of those profiles messed up something in my phone. I remove Govnah and reinstalled it and the only profile I have now is the Palm default for the Pre 2 but still my phone is hot and dies - even on a touchstone. Also, the CPU temp in Govnah is blank. Should it be blank?
[Note: Govnah is a great program and has a lot a failsafes. Not trying to blame the program but maybe the way I used it caused an issue. Other programs were running when I noticed the problem so it could be one of those.]
Wait, the last thing I did was plug in my phone to my car charger. It was in the sun for part of the time while it was charging so I dismissed the heat. But the 3rd part charger could have damaged something.
Any chance I'm wrong and doctoring the Pre will bring it back to normal?
