    I'm trying to figure out what to do here. my wife phone has been rebooting like many others here. prior to rooting, it became a little more frequent when froyo came out. she finds when surfing the net and the phone is plugged in as well. Today while she was driving it rebooted 5 times in less than an hour.

    right now I have her phone rooted with S-off, I tried switching her from backed snacks 1.7 to latest to fresh 3.2, then I changed her to BK 1.75 to fresh 3.3. I thought maybe it was 1 of her apps, so when I loaded fresh, I loaded none of her apps and it rebooted about 3 times in about 10 mins, then it was fine for the rest of the day.

    I'm thinking maybe I should reload the stock version and then unroot. so she can take it in.

    If there's a fix for this rebooting guys please let me know, been doing alot of search here and xda and google. I see users complaining about it, but no solution.

    did you try to do factory reset before flashing a different ROM? Also what kernal are you using?

    yes I did a factory reset as well just to run a test and within the factory reset not touching the phone it rebooted twice. once I saw that I figured it wasn't her apps or the kernal so I did a nandroid restore for data only. the only thing I haven't done is update the radio it's still at 1.40

    for both ROM I used the default kernal, when that didn't work, I then used the netchary listed in sig on fresh

    I thought fresh 3.3.1 has the latest kernal in it, can tell me the name of the kernal you have loaded.

    I just read some other threads, alot complain about rebooting after using the gps. I just tested her phone and 2 mins of using the google nav, it rebooted, and this is what she was trying to use today as well that caused the phone to reboot 5 times.

    I think it's something in the gps or the nav app b/c i'm testing the sprint app right now and so far it's still running
