    So I own a Droid 3 and have been getting a few reboots. Now I know root is not available for the D3 yet but I know it is for the TB and these phones had a track record of random restarts. I was just wondering did root and removal of bloatware help with reboots for those of you who had the problem? Or is this a software problem only fixable through an update to the system?

    The reboot problem is a thing of the past, mostly due to the release of updated radios. If you were to get a Thunderbolt today and root you would not experience reboots. Hell even stock (my wife) they don't exist.

    For the heck of it have you done a factory data reset?

    No I'm mostly just curious. The restarts aren't bad its only happened twice now. Just wanted to see what happens. I've really only had a rooted phone so this whole stock thing is kind of new to me.
