    So recently my X has been rebooting itself when I try to unlock it. Now it only started after I deoxed and put a theme on it. I went back to my back up before the theme and it kept doing it. Not really sure what is wrong with it. It only happens maybe 3 times a day but it is really annoying.

    that happened to me today, I unlocked the phone and my phone lagged up and rebooted it self. Are you running launcher pro??? because that's what I'm running maybe that's what is causing to reboot?

    Yeah I am running launcher pro. I bought it as well and the new pop ups for the bar freeze my phone when ever they tell me that I have a missed call or text.

    I have been running Launcher Pro since I got the phone and have never had a self-restart of the phone. Even after the 2.2 update.

    I know it isn't much, but maybe it can help you to rule something out.

    I have had mine do that twice, not running launcher whatever.
    It would start to lag, then reboot.
    has not done it in the last week however (i've only had it 2 weeks).
    But I have updated a dozen apps in the last week.

    I was thinking that maybe it is an app because there are a few that I just downloaded a few days ago like hot reboot. Not sure if that could be it or not.

    A corrupted file/filesystem on your memory card can cause lagging/freezing and reboots. Easy way to test is to put another sd card in your device, if you have one, or take your sd card out of your phone and see if it runs fine without it.

    If it looks like the card is to blame, then back up your card's contents to your computer. Then format your card and move only essential stuff back to the card, then move other folders/files back in small groups and test until everything you need is back on the card, or you find a bad file.

    People said that about 2.1 as well and I never had it happen.

    As for 2.2... I haven't experienced it at all.

    Is there any easier way to test files cause I don't really have the time to format and move everything back over.

    This is a known problem. Been on Verizon and Motorola's site and there are plenty of people dealing with this. I demanded a New Replacement. Took me over an hour of saying no "like new" replacement but I got one.
    I think there is a update coming to deal with it. I ran my phone stock for two weeks and still got a reboot. So far this one has been running like a champ, but so did my first for about a month.

    Yeah, take your card out and run it without the card for a while. If the rebooting stops, then you know.

    I had the leaked 2.2 version and it did the same thing. Flashed back to 2.1 because of it and had no issue. As soon as I got the ota it started right back up. I'm convinced its just 2.2, to many people are having the same issue for it not to be.

    Ok if it is 2.2 then that makes me feel a little better. I hope they find a fix for it here soon and send out a patch.

    If it were the 2.2 update, then EVERYONE would be having this problem. There are a lot more than you think that are NOT having the problem. Therefore, it is more likely a conflict between an APP, and the 2.2 update.

    Mine has restarted a couple of times, but I am finding that it only does it if I have Trillian running. You won't find it on the market, but it is in Beta.

    For those of you who are rooted, have root only APP's, themes, alternate launchers ect...... you can't complain. You have taken your phone out of the OTA 2.2 update. Therefore your problem could be related to any of the above.

    Your going to hear the blame game here. Since some people are not having problems then it must be something you have done.
    It is not a Root, app, anti-virus, sd card, version, or any else but a Droid X problem. There is nothing constant about the restarting, rebooting issue. I went weeks without having it happen. Others have it happen more often. Some have it when talking, some just sitting on the arm of their chair. Motorola does not have a clue. One tech thought it may be a widget causing it. Some think it is the phone trying to get a connection.
    I have not had a reboot with my Boxed New replacement. My original phone did not start rebooting for over a month after I received the phone.
    I went stock for two weeks before my phone had another restart.
    I refused a Like New Replacement. Took me over an hour and 4 rep's, and a Manager before I got my New Replacement. If my phone had a problem then it was sold to me with the problem.

    And you know this because????? You may have had a phone issue, but that does not mean that every issue is related to a phone issue.

    Is 2.2 perfect? No!! Is it better than 2.1 update 1? Miles!!

    My X with stock 2.2 works just fine... only occasional resets (and I can connect them with signal issues), no lag issues (even with over 100 APPs), I love my Droid X!! My Droid 1 rooted was having a lot of reset issues before I got the X.
