    Ever since I rooted my Droid R2D2, it won't stop randomly rebooting. Happened three times within a 2-hour period today. Mostly happens when I lock/unlock the screen.

    Stock R2D2 ROM, bootstrapped and clocked to 1200MHz but it's been happening since before I did all that.

    If it was happening before u did all that then maybe the phone has a defect, other than that it sounds like u are overclocking too high and the phone powers down because it can't resist. Try OC lower n see if it fixes the problem.

    I was experiencing the same issue on a completely stock D2. It was rebooting every few hours even after a reboot. This started after about a month of use. The only thing I did was install a few apps from the market. So I started deleting them one at a time. After uninstalling Lookout security it hasn't rebooted in 3 weeks and counting.

    Fix Permissions seems to be working fine so far. Only one reboot last night and that was about it. And I still have Lookout on my phone. I think I might have fixed the problem but I'll keep everyone posted.

    Same random rebooting here upon unlock... Up to 5 times a day!

    Any luck on a fix for this? Looks like it happens on the DX and D2 too!

    It's been almost a week since and no reboots. I think I'll declare Problem Solved. I guess all you gotta do is root and then select "Fix Permissions" in ROM Manager.

    I would give this opinion a second look. You might get stuck in a bootloop you can't get out of one of these days.

    I can safely say that the clock had nothing to do with it. I guess the R2D2s are just defective.

    Ever since i fixed permissions my phone has been more stable. I cant say the problem is.fixed but it has definetly improved. I used to lockup 7-10 times a day and now im down to one every 2 days or so.

    I am confident in saying that the "Fix permissions" and the music.apk file did not cause this. It was the "SETTINGS->DISPLAY->ANIMATION->NO ANIMATION" setting. Others still getting the resetting please try this to confirm this is the fix.

    A random reboot is possible on a Droid. Having them on a regular basis means you've got an issue.

    So those of you running task killers of anti virus, please remove them.

    Now if it still happens then more then likely you have a rogue app. You'll need to identify that app and you do that with a factory data reset and do not restore your apps.

    Run it a couple of days. No reboots? Slowly start adding your apps back in. When the reboots start up again you should have an idea of what app it might be.

    If it does reboot after the factory data reset then I'd get rid of the ROM. Stock Droids don't do that, how is a malfunctioning phone make it any better?

    I was running fission and my phone was booting frequently, I got rid of fission and installed gummy, same thing kept happening, I sbfed back to stock and it keeps happening, it didn't happen before I installed fission, I did OC to 1350mhz while running fission and experienced an overheat of 55'C while running milestone and setcpu.

    I was having random reboots on my Droid2 Global with the stock rom, but loading fission eliminated them for me.
