    hey guys,
    anyways, this is the third time just today that my OG droid has restarted itself. I have done all of the hard/ soft resets, however nothing seems to work out. and I do not have warranty left. It literally has a mind of its own! Is there anything I can do to minimize or even stop the number of times it reboots itself?
    Thanks.

    thanks for the replies, now if I wanted to root it, how would I go about doing that? And is it really worth rooting it, if I have an upgrade in march?

    yes, rooting is the main reason many have felt upgrading to any phones currently available was unnecessary

    and here is a quick root guide
    1)download these files
    http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/Experiences/Global_Drivers/MotoHelper_2.0.40_Driver_4.9.0.exe
    http://wonderly.com/bb/DROID/OEM/rsdlite_5.0.msi
    http://wonderly.com/bb/DROID/OEM/VZW_A855_QSC6085BP_RZRECOVERY_UPDATE.sbf
    http://wonderly.com/bb/DROID/OEM/update.zip
    2)install the first 2 links in order
    3)connect your phone via usb to your computer and copy the update.zip you downloaded to your sdcard
    4)reboot your phone and hold power + vloume up + the camera button until you see the screen that says bootloader battery ok
    5)open rsd lite and see if it recognizes your phone (basically any entry in the model column) and slide your phone keyboard open
    6) click the ... near the start button and navigate and select the VZW_A855_QSC6085BP_RZRECOVERY_UPDATE.sbf file
    7)click start and WATCH FOR
    "Phone[0000]: Phone is being rebooted" On your phone the screen will change to "SW Update Complete" and your phone will reboot within a second or two. You want to be already holding the x button on your keyboard to boot into recovery mode when the phone actually reboots so the stock OS doesnt erase the new recovery you just flashed
    8) using the volume keys to move through the menu, the camera button to select and the power button to go back, go to install and select the update.zip you put on your sdcard earlier and select install update.zip
    9) then select "reboot into android" and enjoy the benefits of being rooted
