There is a long thread on xda developers forums, it is apparently a heat issue in many cases, and I noticed mine overheated while charging.

I only charge my Yota2 using wireless, and I've never had any problems with the e-ink screen...

I'm eyeing the 3, but I think the price is a bit too steep...

My YP2 is from China. Is there a way to change the language ? Changing it in the settings does not seem to solve the problem entirely.

Also : How do I manage to install Google play store ? The Google installer method isnt working.

Upgrade to the latest firmware. You need to download the full updater and then copy it to the phone and restart, as far as I recall.

Is that necessary for what what I want to do ? If so, is there a safe way to prevent my phone from getting bricked or losing other functions ? I've read about a lot of people having issues after flashing

I didn't have any trouble setting English as the language on my Yotaphone that was from China. So I was suggesting upgrading to the most recent EU firmware as a way around whatever problem you have.

I've followed the installer found on XDA by the letter, and didn't have any problems. It took me a while before I dared to try, but wasn't disappointed.

Doesn't look like the one I found. I downloaded a complete firmware installer, that just needed to be copied to the phone and gave me the EU Android 6 firmware.

Still no brick-safe tutorial for flashing ?
