Did the root with the SMUpdater this weekend after reading a lot 'bout rooting and what-not. I decided to take the lazy way out, what can I say?
Worked "OK" over the weekend - I noticed the phone was a bit slower but I accepted that to get some of the neat features.
Today though, there was a problem that got out of control. I was on the telephone with my supervisor while I was in the field. While talking to him about something quite important my phone hungup on him and locked up. I had to use a co-worker's phone to finish the conversation. When I had time, I removed the battery from my 'droid and rebooted it.
Everything seemed fine until an hour later when a co-worker tried to call me 3 times. All 3 times my phone never ringed - instead it sent the caller to voice-mail like my phone was not on. I rebooted the phone and was able to receive phone calls again. I thought that was the end of my problems... nope.
About 5 min later the phone started rebooting, constantly. I tried pulling the battery and it started rebooting again. It would boot to the unlock screen and then reboot as I was trying to unlock... or if I didn't try to unlock it would just reboot. Keep in mind I had not installed ANY programs 48 hours prior to this event.
Being that I am required to have a working cell phone on me.... I used the restore feature to restore my phone to the stock 2.0.1 image, although it was still rooted. Unfortunately this means I lost a few features - including 2 that I desperately miss.
Dictation for text fields (IE: Text Messages.... this was huge for me) and the wireless tether program...
Has anyone else experienced the constant reboot problem? My droid was NOT over clocked..... now that it's back on the stock image it runs noticeably faster with better response time vs the modified image that came with the flash.
Also, if anyone can help.... I really want the dictation for text messages back
