Default Forced reboot

I had to replace my original E4GT recently due to the power button going totally crazy and rebooting the phone all by itself. I used to update the PRL, profile, and check for firmware updates every now and then on the old one and never had any issues.

Now with this new one, when I update the profile a countdown screen comes up and it force reboots itself. I have attached a screenshot so people can see it.

Has anyone else ever seen or had this happen to them? I just think its strange, considering my old phone never did it. This new phone is running the same Kernal, Modem, and Firmware versions as the old one.

Mine that I got yesterday just did that as well when updating profile, may have something to do with the latest software update.

Don't hit back or home button, it'll call the police anyway lol found that out myself

Haha, I found that out too. I am assuming they will fix it eventually! Yet another reason to speed up a Jelly Bean update
