I have had the same problem since the update. It had never happened to my DX before until now and i've owned it since September. The only thing I have done is rooted it since the .340. Not task killers or anti-virus. It just seems to freeze up then it restarts.
UPDATE: My friend called me saying the phone is randomly rebooting again. It even rebooted while I was talking to him.
He has some market apps and non market apps.
He wants to flash the .340 to the phone. I know it's against forum rules to post links. But I'm clueless how to find the .340 SBF. I've searched Google with no avail. Help someone? I just want to help him get back to stock.
There isn't a full 340 sbf yet.
i have been having reboots as well. someone posted a possible solution in this thread.
i will try this when i get home. In the meantime, ask your friend to open up the Gallery and see what happens.
other than what's been mentioned, have heard of weirdness of things like apps causing reboots.

Could try trimming some of the apps you're not using.. *shrug*
I'm not trying to point a finger at any app, but I'm on the latest software and have not had any reboot issues. I'm rooted using Z4.

If this behavior continues I'll try and remove ClockworkMod (which I read is not easy to do) and see if it solves the reboot issues.
Honestly I don't think it could possibly be CWM. Almost everyone here in the DX section has it.. And im sure it would be causing problems for more than one person if were indeed the app causing your reboots.

Have the same problem here. Started after the 340 update. I suspected apps since I had many reboots one day and no reboots for over a day after a reset. Slowly started adding apps back on and got a reset here and there. Tried narrowing down the list of suspects.
Since then many people stated they are seeing similar random reboots even though they are not running the apps I was.
I do not understand why this problem only affects some people but the best solution I see right now is to SBF the Verizon version before 340. What was it?
The only problem with the proposed solution... is that you can't go back. If you try to sbf from 2.3.340 back to 2.3.15, the phone will just sit at the bootloader (black screen with white text).. with an error message. :S

Overclocking, underclocking, some mods (including themes, ROMs, etc. etc. etc) can make them worse, as well as some task killing apps, CPU control apps, battery management apps, etc.
Someone else mentioned WeatherBug was causing their reboots...
It is speculated that the actual fix from Moto that was included in 2.3.340 for the reboot issues people were having.... is bumping up the default voltage (which does indeed increase stability...).. But most ROMs and/or overclocking apps set voltage back to default pre 2.3.340 voltages...
If you ARE able to figure out what's causing your reboot issues.. PLEASE post back and let us know. Lots of people looking for even a little improvement to the issue! :)
Some ROMs make it better or worse...
I'm on a Droid 2, non-rooted and have been having random reboots. It likes to freeze after locking sometimes. The screen will go black and even sliding won't do anything. Takes a few minutes sometimes to come back or the droid eye pops up.
I think it only started after I installed Lookout. Maybe its constant background running is causing it to reboot? I don't want to get rid of it because of the safety though. Any ideas?
