    Have you done an FDR inside the os?? Sounds like something is still not reading right, might need to Odin it. But try and FDR

    What scares me is that the same thing happened to my wife about 2 years ago..She had a Droid Incredible and they pushed an update and it forced it into random reboot loops. Happened to a lot pf people too. Verizon basically told me to go screw, but on the upside..look at all of the nice new phones available....At which point we got her an S3. I guess it's my turn now

    a few nights ago, I did an FDR from the boot menu..Didnt restore anthing...rebuilt from scratch...reboots kept happening..thats why I did the Verizon Repair today.

    I guess on the flip side, all of these rebuild are forcing em to keep a clean phone, as I install less and less stuff each time.

    Very strange that we're not hearing more about this issues elsewhere. If an fdr wouldn't clear it up, you'd think it'd be more widespread & the news would be circulating.

    Well...I have found that the old methods need a new perspective, if you Odin with proper image file, I could fix your phone in 30 minutes

    Maybe, but an fdr fixed many messed up updates on the og DROID & others.

    Perhaps they've tweaked the code too much for that to airways be effective.

    You might try Kaos' method. It gets results.

    That is weird..Aside from the Verizon Support forums, I havent heard anything else about it..
    makes me wonder what specific thing is causing this.
    Bad SD card?
    Rogue App (but which one)?
    Bad Hardware (i.e. battery? even though I experience it with 2 different ones)
    I suppose I can try to find another SD card to try..Have to dig up my box of goddies from the basement

    It is a bootloader issue I believe! That is why it restarts. .. our a modem issue. Were you rooted whenyou took the update? ?
