One day while perusing this forum someone mentioned the carhome.apk. I thought to myself, "self, delete that file."

Oh yeah, I am a dork. Anyway...

I deleted that file and now my phone can be safely placed on my metal desk at work and it no longer bootloops.

Now, I have gotten random reboots also. I have gone for at least 2 weeks now without one until today. The temperature outside is easily 93 and I was on a bicycle ride. I was using 'my tracks' and getting multiple texts. Have you ever texted while riding a bike? WAY harder than driving and texting. hahaha. I got back home and rolled into my garage. It was easily 105 in there. I got a text while standing in the garage. I took my phone out of the handlebar holder and it rebooted.

I would say with my most uneducated brain that I had a heat related reboot.
I enjoyed reading this post. =]
