    Droid wouldn't turn on today.

    So I'm at work and grab my phone out of my pocket to make a call. Press the power button to bring it out of sleep....and nothing happens. I try a few more times and get nothing. So I wonder if I accidentally turned it off.

    I hold the power button down a few times and get nothing. Plug it into my charger, nothing. So I finally pull the battery out and replace it. Turns on fine, battery is at 90%.


    I've had the phone for 6 days, and have had it rooted and OCed for 3. I backed the OC down to 800mhz (had it at 1000) just in case it overheated, but I had the profile set for 550mh whenever the temp got above 41C...


    Why could this have happened? The battery is fine. I had GPS on but turned it off since it rarely connects in the building I'm in.

    If it happens again I'll be resetting to stock (so they don't void my warranty) and returning to the verizon store.

    What ROM are you running or are you just rooted? And this also could be an app conflict. Any recent apps added?

    I'll second that issue. I encounter this state with my phone far too often (maybe once every 2-3 days) and have to battery pull.

    BB 1.1
    have run: chevy10slot 1.1ghz; adamz 1.1ghz; tehsteve 600mhz (current)

    I'm now on a slower kernel because of some overheating issues I've had. So far I *think* I'm better off but haven't performed enough testing to be sure.

    Bugless Beast 2.1


    I've been watching it and nothing unusual has happened since. No apps have been download in the past couple of days.

    How often are these battery pulls being done?

    This may be more informational than helpful, but here goes:

    Usually reboots are battery issues, but you say yours was pretty much full.

    CPUs can be slightly different and one chip might run fine at 1.3ghz while another doesn't fair well about 900mhz. Just prior and after to rooting my phone I was thinking 800mhz sounded about right and that anything over 1000mhz was sort of crazy.

    After numerous weeks at 1.1 ghz my phone runs fine. I don't do battery pulls on a regular basis. In fact I think I've done so maybe twice since rooting the phone mid Feb.

    This doesn't mean the rom I chose is better than the others but there is something different going on because others run the rom you are without problems. When the phone powers off it has crashed. It is either hardware (fault with something which includes battery issues) or software that made it crash.

    There are many questions to ask to troubleshoot this:
    Have you applied any themes?
    Did you do a complete wipe of cache and data when you applied the last rom?
    Are you even rooted?
    Are you overclocked and if so what are your settings?
    Do you get a lot of Force Closes?

    If this keeps occurring you can get all drastic and go back to a stock phone with a minimum of apps installed and if it keeps occurring get a new phone because it is under warranty. Or you can slowly back off to eliminate possibilities. Lower your CPU back to stock, 250/550 for all SetCPU settings. Reflash the rom with a data and cache wipe. Don't use live wallpapers. If it becomes stable add things back in.

    My first phone started rebooting whenever it went into sleep mode. I had to bring it back. This was a stock phone that had never been rooted.

    You're right in thinking to bring it back if the issue continues. Electronics have a burn in period. Usually if they are going to break it happens shortly after we bring them home and if they make it past that period they tend to last.

    Lastly, it also could be that your phone's CPU is not going fast enough. I use the SlideShowWidgets which came from a non-moto-Droid phone. If I run my CPU at 800mhz it Force Closes all the time, a real pain. At 1.1ghz it stays up and running fine. Do you have extra software running on it or just standard market apps except for maybe wifi-tether?
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Maybe 6-8 weeks. I noticed this for the first time *before* rooting though. While it seems more frequent than before it didn't crop up only after installing Bugless Beast.

    If it was doing random reboots before you rooted you should have taken it back. As it stands now it'll be very hard to figure out whats wrong. have you tried taking it back to stock and running with no apps for a couple days and see if it still does it?
