    Anyone else's D2 freeze and reboot on them for no reason?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm not sure if its just me or not, but does anyone have a clue as to why my D2 randomly freezes, goes black, and then reboots itself at various points during the day? Does anyone else have this problem? Its happened at least 4 times today and its been like that for a few weeks. I can tell when its about to happen because the lights for the "menu, home, back and search button" on the bottom stay lit and I cant press them nor can I press anything on the screen and pressing the lock button does nothing.

    Some background info:
    -I am not rooted
    -Im not sure if this is the reason, but I'm running launcherpro the paid one and widgetlocker.

    Other than that I see no reason as to why my phone keeps doing it.

    Any input would be great. Thanks

    wow ok its a relief that im not alone, but at the same time sucks because we still have the problem.
    im trying to rule a few things out so are you both running launcherpro or some other type of home replacement?
    I cant really put my thumb on a specific reason as to why it happens so im just throwing some possible stuff out there

    This question does get asked frequently but I'll be happy to answer again.

    If your D2 is resetting on it's own, something is wrong. Now that doesn't mean run back to the Verizon Store you probably have an app causing an issue. The two most notorious are Task Killers and antivirus. if you are running either of those remove them.

    That may or may not fix the problem. If it doesn't you need to do a hard factory data reset. Run your Droid for a couple of days with just the stock apps. If there is no reset then slowly start adding your apps again. Once you have reinstalled the apps take notice as to when it starts restarting again. You should be able to identify the problem application.

    If it does reset immediately after doing a factory data reset, then take the phone back.

    thank you for your help! i did actually have lookout running with the antivirus part. I disabled it but kept the missing device part activated. would that be alright or do i have to remove lookout entirely?

    This happens to my droid 2 every few days and I actually am running Lookout antivirus and task killer lol. I'll try uninstalling them to see if that helps.

    How did you guys even get Launcher pro to run on a unrooted phone?
    I tried installing it before I flashed Liberty 1.5 to mine and it didn't work.
    The screen would just go black I think. All I remember is that it didn't work so I took if off.

    Hi Guys,

    I had this exact same problem, and it was infuriating. However, switching from Launcher Pro to ADW Launcher EX solved it for me.

    Regards,
