    Since I have been on Apex 1.4.1 I have noticed my X has rebooted by itself, for no reason, a few times. It just did it again this morning. I just happened to hear the sound file playing that plays when it is doing the Apex animation. Is anyone else seeing this as well or is it just me?

    I've been running1.4.1 since it got released and have only had maybe 4 random restarts. Been very stable for me. I'm running @ 1.1 for my of setting

    My guess would be overclock/undervolt settings or rogue app.

    I upgraded to ApeX 1.4.1 yesterday - and have noticed at least two spontaneous reboots since. As the original poster noted, the telltale sign is hearing the THX sound from the phone sitting on the table across the room.

    No themes, or overclocking, nor any apps "rogue enough" to be causing reboots on 1.3 that I was running previously.

    I've never had reason to look, before - but knowing that android is based on Linux - are the any logfiles that can be reviewed to look for clues? Fired up a terminal, and don't see a /var/log directory...

    Any thoughts at how to track down what might be causing the reboots?

    I rooted Tuesday, 4 days ago, and it did it or the first time today at lunch, just froze and rebooted. I overclocked it again last night and used the Balanced profile.

    You guys should check out rubix focused 2.0.1. I've had zero reboots since 2.0 was released. No slowdowns, no reboots, nothing. Its been running flawless (knock on wood). I've tried basically every major rom to date, and every rom except rubix 2 has given me random reboots.

    I'm definitely not knocking Apex cause its awesome, its just a suggestion.

    I may try rubix. I think most ROM's Ive tried random reboot, but I think its just an area VZW network thing. I know for a fact that when my phone has done this, I've been in one or two areas when traveling for work when it does this.

    Like Rubix a lot also, but I had a reboot problem after a day of working fine. Turns out my superuser was not up to date. I dowloaded the latest update, cleared delvic cache, fixed permissions and rebooted. It has run like a champ all day and I have been using the heck out of it.
