    Today my mod started flashing the charge screen and normal screen really fast, or stops at the charge screen. I never charge it externally always use a charger. Why is it doing this? Havent updated it or anything it is due for a update but afraid I'll brick it. Is the charger port shorting or something....

    Yup, it's the USB port shorting on the PCB, fooling the mod into thinking it's charging. RMA it. You can try putting a cable in and moving it around to fix temporarily.

    Thats lame, never use the port except to add custom backgrounds. I got the mod used a few months ago dont even know if its under warranty....I have the box and papers for it.

    I was thinking of unSoldering the port but than I won't be able to update it. And now that the port has a issue I cant update it

    They have 1yr warranties, write SXMini, they'll want the warranty card.

    The earliest ones had a slight protrusion of the port beyond the frame that causes them to work loose over time via surface abrasion.

    Another few FW updates and may be able to do that too via BT.

    I decided to upgrade the firmware because it finally just stick to the charging screen. Update was successful and the mod is working 100% again.
