iPhone 5 Screen Flicker Problem

After iOS 6 crashed twice on my iPhone 5, I powered it off to settle things down. Then when powered back on, I got this weird screen flicker with an image of an iPhone reset superimposed. Oddly, the iPhone is working albeit with that extreme flicker.

Going to see if a software restore fixes this problem. Hope it’s not hardware related. Probably bachi for this.

More info. When I initially setup the iPhone 5, the restore from iCloud was a partial restore with only some of my apps installed. The phone said it was still restoring from iCloud hours after too. I’m not sure if I was hitting a limit for the number of app screens that was causing glitches.

    How was the restore you did from your MAC?

      Looking better. I restored the software and more or less reinstalled my apps. Gotta give it a twirl to see how it holds up.

    Same thing happened to me. What worked for me was restoring from a backup on Tuesday the 18th. Which was before I updated my old phone to iOS6. Something seemed to get corrupted when I updated my old phone. Works perfect now. On the restore from the 18th all apps were restored perfectly and no flickering.

      Yeah, a restore seemed to do the trick to fix this problem. I think I had a corrupt restore as well.
