    Booting takes several tries since 5.02 update

    I had been running 5.01 for a while and finally loaded the 5.02 update (did not wipe). Having several app problems that I'm still troubleshooting but the biggest problem is rebooting the phone. It is now taking 3-5 tries with battery pulls to get the phone to successfully boot. Generally the phone will start to load and just sit at the main screen. I can see the wallpaper and the sliders but they will not respond. After several tries it will boot, anyone have any ideas? I'm about ready to just go back to 5.01.

    Have tried wiping Dalvik, did not fix the problem. I normally wipe before installing but read somewhere on the board that I didn't need to wipe between 5.01 and the 5.02 update.

    To add further confusion to the fire I gave up yesterday and wiped my phone and installed the new CM7.02 and I'm still having the reboot issue so I'm assuming now it's not a PE issue. I'm going to try powering down instead of rebooting to see if that makes a difference.

    next step i would try is to change kernels and voltages of the kernel. say you're using a LV... try a standard voltage
    PE v6 Beta. holy crap i think GB bugs are gone!

    I went back to PE 5.01 using stock kernel which is what I had before my problems started. If I continue to have the problem I will switch kernels as my next step.

    So it's been a while since I started this post, went back to 5.01 and most things are working well but rebooting still takes several tries. What voltage is the stock PE kernel and what do folks suggest I try instead?

    I think it might be time for you to upgrade! V6 blows 5.x out of the water!

    I had issues when I went from 5.01 to 5.02 and things are running smoothly for the most part so I'm not in a rush to upgrade yet...

    I think my problem has been solved. Switched to a standard voltage kernel and booting seems smooth again. Guess my old droid is getting tempermental in it's old age.
