    i was hoping to get some help to figure out why my D1 is rebooting itself. its random...not sure why it does it...

    ROM = LFYv1.4
    Theme = WatermarkD3.3LFY1.4a
    Kernel = ChevyNo1-1.1Ghz-lowV-7slot-update (originally i had it @ ulow...but that kept rebooting more often)

    so maybe i just answered my own question...should i flash a 1.1 @ med?

    any thoughts?

    thanks in advance!!

    It could very well be your battery. Have you tried swapping batteries?

    I say this because your battery could simply be going bad.

    My Droid was doing random reboots and I found out that my battery was bad. A replacement battery fixed it just fine.

    If it's not the battery, your Droid may not like Chevy's Kernels. Maybe try a different dev's kernel.

    Good catch Kratos. I didnt think to even recommend a different kernel.

    if our rooted and messing with kernels and getting reboots, there is a very high percentage it is the kernel. either voltage does not work for you or the kernel is a bad match for your phone.

    personally, the battery would never have entered my mind, this is classic kernel issues

    Not unusual. I've had some luck running 1.2 GHz kernels (now using Chevy's ULV 1.2 GHz and loving it) but I've gotten a boot loop everytime I've tried a 1.25 GHz kernel.
