    My girlfriend just recently got her first android, the revolution, and she's running into problems with it randomly rebooting. Sometimes the home screen will randomly refresh. Any fix for this?

    As a general rule, I would suggest a home replacement app like ADW or Go Launcher as a first try at fixing it. It removes a lot of the "skin" and lets the phone run better. Get rid of a task launcher if she has one, they cause more trouble than they fix.

    If it was my phone, I'd root it and go searching for a nice clean, minimalist ROM and kernel to cut down on the bloat and wasted cpu cycles, but that's a whole order of magnitude above a home replacement app and involves voiding your warranty, etc, so I try not to suggest it too strongly to anyone who feels unsure.

    I'm familiar with rooting, just not sure if she would be cool with it. That would probably be a last resort. Going to run the idea of a new launcher by her.
