    Just so people understand, random reboots occur when a piece of software causes an error (usually when the software is being pulled from your RAM) on your operating system, this results in a "black screen" aka reboot.

    Most likely the problem is there are so many apps that haven't been updated to 4.0 that it's causing you to have random reboots when ever that software fails to operate on 4.0.

    Since people are updating their Nexus with loads of apps they previously used that have not been rewritten for 4.0, it's hard to determine which app is causing your problem, so just wait until they've been updated and then worry about it.

    If you want to resolve your problem now, uninstall any apps that aren't recently updated to 4.0, this will solve your issue.

    Mine would never boot up again after the battery went dead. Would this type of bug in the OS be "worked out" or is part of the hardware and you'd be stuck with the phone for two years?

    I have a Galaxy Nexus experiencing this issue. It has happened to me twice where I'm driving, listening to Pandora and all of a sudden the music stops and the screen goes black. I always hold the power button and the phone reboots.

    I have a friend who also has the Galaxy Nexus and his is doing the same thing when he uses PowerAmp. His friend is getting the same issue with his Galaxy Nexus with the built in music player so maybe this is a "music" issue and not just a Pandora thing?

    I had it happen to me twice yesterday when I was trying to download a small file from the browser. It would hang on the file then reboot itself.

    This has been the only time it has done this.

    Mine did it for the first time today (twice) after a month of ownership. Once when trying to unlock the phone after a text message and once when the phone was sitting on a desk asleep.

    It's happened to me, too. Using Pandora and using Cubed media player. At first it only happened while charging, but it's more recently happened when not charging, too.

    Strangely enough I had 2 or 3 random reboots the first 2 days I had the Nexus and haven't had one since.

    Usually it's an incompatible app causing a memory error and forcing a reboot.

    It's happening to me using Slacker Radio as well as Pandora. What I can get it to consistently do is reboot almost every 5 minutes using either of those apps. Reboots are happening on both Wi-Fi and LTE. However, I can listen to PowerAmp just fine.
