    I had been using a paid version of PowerAmp. Never had this problem before Gingerbread. However, it seems at least once during every workout session (which is when I listen to music on my DX), the DX will power off. I have to hold down the power button for a while before it will even turn back on. I uninstalled PowerAmp completely, and tried using the stock player. Same issue.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have had the same problem since Gingerbread. I've tried factory reset, called vzw, got a few refurbs and they all do the same thing. I'm hoping the new fix actually fixes it!

    No... the phone is not physically hot.

    Is there actually a new fix coming?

    Supposedly, MOTO is working on Gingerbread 4.5.602. I haven't heard anything concrete on that though.

    I would try a data wipe

    I found that if the music player is on the screen when the display goes off...."poof". I start the music, set to randomize, +minimize it+ then turn off the display. No more problems. M.

    Since GB, mine shuts off at any random time. Music, no music, idle or working. It doesn't matter.

    Same problem here... I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with this device.

    Time to root boys. I have never had that issue on all the rooted GB leaks or any custom ROM.

    I have Rooted GB and yesterday I had this problem for the first time. I have been rooted with GB for months now and never had this problem until yesterday. I wounder if it was related to using the sleep mode on my phone. I never really used it until yesterday and I used the sleep mode about 5 times. Then while listening to music through Power Amp my phone just shut off. It was not hot and I had to pull the battery before I could reboot.

    Since Google, Verizon and Motorola keep blaming each other and not even trying to fix the problems, my next phone will be an Iphone on another carrier. :-(

    mine too and it's interesting

    Mine does the same thing. Many random reboots. The wierd part is that I had the .577 version of GB on mine before the .596 and it was flawless. My phone had never been so good. I thought what the heck I will run the .596 and surely it's better. Had these issues ever since and I don't think it's as fast as .577 was with data. The speedtest results I used to get with .577 were great. If my signal is strong I get good speed with .596, but the signal is rarely as good so the speed suffers. I'm about to the point I'm ready to sbf back and then just reload the .577 or try another rom. In my opinion .596 stinks.

    You mean 4.5.573?

    Try CM7. Way better than the Moto GB leaks.

    My DX has rebooted since the day I got it. all the different versions of Android, rooted, not rooted, etc...

    However, it does it most when I am listening to music, which makes me think it has something to do with the SD card. Maybe a corrupt file or something that causes the Android of a BSOD, which seems to be a reboot...

    Except that CM7 doesn't allow you to use GPS, the camera, video, still has some BlueTooth bugs, etc...

    It isn't anywhere near ready for prime time on the DX yet. I will gladly rather have a daily reboot than to have to give up some of the most common core features of my phone...

    Uh, try again. YouTube, camera, GPS, video and more work. I haven't found anything that doesn't. They have added Bluetooth support.

    Have you even used it or are you just basing your opinion of the first nightly that came out in June? Sounds like the former.

    Don't try it. I'll enjoy my fast, customized phone with no reboots, while you enjoy your stock rebooting phone that has issues playing music.

    I thought I was going by the main website which doesn't even list the DX as a supported phone...

    So where are you getting the info from?
