    Anyone else getting any? Mine just did it. Did one last night while I and the night before when I was using it. I thought it had to do with an app I was running at the time (Strava) but it has done it now 3 times and I have been doing any range of tasks or in todays case it may have been when a text came in. Can't exactly pinpoint it.

    I haven't had any. My first guess would be some app that's not completely compatible with ICS yet and that's causing an issue.

    The last two days I had at least 3 random reboots per day - yesterday afternoon I uninstalled the Light Flow App and it's been smooth sailing since. (My phone is rooted and on 4.0.1)

    I've had a couple... using light flow also. Not sure if that's it, or, if I am willing to give it up to avoid the reboots.

    No light flow here. Was running strava for kicks again trying to get it to crash for the strava guys and got a phone call. Chatted on the phone and went to hang up and frozen phone. Pressed power and nothing. Pressed the black screen and reboot. Strava ran all the way until the reboot.

    I'm getting two or three reboots a day since purchase. All during different types of use (using phone, using apps, overnight while charging)

    I haven't had random reboots, but I have had a few as a result of applications not ready for ICS (For example, Wifi tether works but will cause reboots if you aren't careful).

    I'm using lightflow, with no reboots, so I don't think it's that.

    Mine did it all day yesterday. I had a bunch of ap updates today. Not sure which one itight have been, but smooth sailing since. I'm convinced as aps get caught up, this phone will be unstoppable.
  12. I think mine has done it once. However, this happened on my Droid X as well.

    I had 3 reboots so far. The last one, I was checking something in settings and it just rebooted.

    I just had my first re-boot, while downloading car home ultra from the market. Froze, then re-boot. To the galaxy nexus's credit though, it re-booted super fast.

    I haven't been bothered by any reboots since my last post. Since other people can't seem to pin it to the same app I'd venture to say that the problem may not just be Light Flow, but that there is a good chance that it is a software problem of some apps not playing nice with ICS. I think that is a slight consolation while we wait for this kink to get ironed out...

    In the meantime, maybe people want to look into uninstalling apps one by one until the reboots stop.

    I got my Nexus release day, right when Verizon opened. I was on the phone later that day, when it went black and restarted, then again later that night.

    Anyway I went to Verizon the next day to exchange a case and said "Oh by the way..."

    The lady said she hadn't heard of this and asked if I wanted to exchange phones. I said yeah and haven't had a prob since :)

    I've had two so far. One two days after I got it (before unlocking and rooting) and one last night (after unlocking and rooting). Both occurred after trying to launch the camera. I'm not positive about the first time but last night I was launching it from the camera icon and not directly from the launch screen.

    Interesting. I wonder if its possibly some bad hardware or coincidence that your new one is running fine.

    My friend said he's had this happen but that he noticed it only does it when listening to music. He said both pandora and google music have caused it. I haven't used my phone to listen to music yet, so I can't speak to that.

    I had one today when I was in Google Voice and trying to read a text when I believe a call came in. The phone just went dead and the power button wouldn't do anything. I was worried I had bricked it somehow, but after about 15 seconds the power button brought it back up into boot mode.

    I'm getting random reboots when listening to music also. I'm using PowerAmp if that makes a difference. Also noticed I get random reboots when using go launcher. I'm testing now listening to music on stock launcher with PowerAmp. Hope it goes well. Can't live without my music lol.:eek:

    I've had 3 "crashes" while listening to Pandora in my car with it charging and going through an auxilary port. I say "crashes" because it doesn't automatically reboot. The screen turns black, music stops, etc then after maybe 15 seconds, I have to press the power button and it goes through the boot animation.

    Its happened to me about three times. All when I was doing something different and it has happened before and after I downloaded light flow so I am not convinced that is it.
