1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Finally I spotted the problem.

    I have 2 Droid 3, first was repaired by Motorola in warranty (LCD) , but it is in USA, so I have to wait until somebody comes to my country (Uruguay)
    The second unit bought as new, have a problem with many random reboots. I cannot send it to Motorola, I will use it as replacement unit, a it is now.

    These reboots are clearly hardware based, and made a several actions and convert it to an stable and usable phone:

    - Hard resets and reformats : Reboots continued with no apps installed, nothing found on logs . Not software problem.

    - Change firmware (now in Stock 5.7.906 with and Maverick Rom 4.5 using Safestrap) : Reboots continued. No firmware related.

    Slowing CPU?
    Ok.. found that using SET CPU at 300/300 MHZ is rock solid. No reboots at all. many days on, But camera is compromised at so slow speed..
    If use 300/600 MHZ , is fine, but some few reboots happens. So I can use these settings when using camera.

    Where is the faulty component ? CPU, Memory bank, power , I/O controller ..... have to look... until.

    Until I had a reboot at 300/300 when I turned the flash light on some seconds, using it as a lantern.

    Ok.. found it... it is a power comsumption issue, and can replicate the error.

    I have 3 original batteries, tested with 3, same problem.
    Checked and cleaned contacts.. not there...

    What do I need now from you, forum's genius?

    I want to try 300/600 300/800 and 300/1000 with overvolts/undervolts values but don't know where is the place if exists to edit and try other values (specially undervolt to see if I can get higher freqs using less power ).

    In USA is easy.. send it to Motorola. From here, avoid customs and courier, cost more than a new unit :)
