    Rooted Droid shuts itself off and goes back in time to 1969...?

    I recently rooted my Droid and have done a few additions and tweaks. The last two days, around 1pm, my time, my phone shuts itself off. The only way to turn it back on is battery pull, and then turn it on. When it comes up, it's 5:01pm, Dec 31st, 1969.

    After resetting date and time zone, it goes back to normal...but...is this "normal" that it's happening?

    What kind of information do I need to provide so I can start trying to hunt down the cause of this problem?

    Well I was born in 69, so I think you will be a little hard pressed to find a better year

    1969 is when the Apollo mission found the Droid at the base of the Monolith.....

    All sillyness aside, no it's not normal. What were your tweaks and additions?
    Also, is this a one time thing or will it do it on subsequent reboots?

    Ty Cereal Killer.

    I'll be as specific as I can to help start working on this.

    I am using ChevyNo.1's SSv2.0.2 ROM. I wiped the phone and installed it as per his instructions. I then used the update.zip process to upgrade to his 10 slot 1.2ghz kernel.

    I have the Helix Launcher installed, the blue ese53 theme applied, and a seperate theme that changes the pulldown bar look.

    Three nights ago, I did a wipe and installed the new SSv2.0.3 ROM, but had a couple issues, so I re-wiped and put 2.0.2 back on. Then applied my kernel, themes, and the launcher.

    As to how often it does it, the last two days, Tues and Weds, right around noon to 1pm (was at work and didn't see the official time) the phone shuts itself off. I have to pull the battery because it won't turn back on otherwise. When the phone comes back up, it's Dec. 31, 1969 and showing 5:01 pm. I have to manually change my time zone because I'm in Arizona and our DST does not change.

    Then...all seems good...no issues. It's 2-3 hours away from *possibly* happening again today.

    In my sig I have links to most of the things I've done with my phone.

    As far as apps I have installed...there are probably 35-40...do you want me to list them all? It's not a problem, just not sure if you wanna see them all...lol
