Try FTL or Zeam. I use SwiftKey on all my phones, so that's not going to change, but since I stopped using ADW and went to FTL, I had zero random reboots. I had reboots from apps throwing errors, but not the random ones. FTL tossed a random the other night, so I switched to Zeam and haven't had one since. It's not as customizable (using icons/themse from ADW packs), but it's a small RAM footprint.

Sorry, that's just not true. Some of us have been using this phone and modded roms since day 1, used the 2 kernels other than stock and still encountered reboots. The root-cause analysis so far points to apps not working well will the phone's version of Android and/or the data the app saves when backed up. Restoring app data through Titanium or Rom Toolbox will almost certainly cause reboots, for whatever reason.
