    Don't buy the cruzerlite bugdroid case. It partially melted whilst my phone was in it. The liquid was all over the back cover of my phone, but fortunately it all came off.

    You can see in the picture the part of the case that melted. When I took it off my phone it was liquid, but it has since solidified.

    Thats kind of a strange place for it to melt, given that the battery is in the lower-center of the phone. What would heat up near the camera module like that ?

    Are you rooted?

    Have you over clocked the processor?

    What version of CyanogenMod are u running?

    When did it happen? Like watching movies or playing games.

    Is that case original or a cheap Chinese knock off?

    It seems really weird. My phone has seemed to be warmer than normal recently, but I don't understand how it could have possibly gotten warm enough to melt a tpu case. My phone is completely stock 38R, so I shouldn't have any problems on the software side. I purchased the case from the manufacturer via amazon, which fortunately meant that it was very easy to get a refund
