    So my buddy's thunderbolt crashes about 2 or 3 times a day after 2.2.1. Update and we've tried the hard reset and it didn't do anything.... anyone know what to do or having similar problems?

    If it is just cutting off and rebooting it is a known issue. We are waiting for an OTA update to fix it. If you are not against flashing it manually, there is a post on here about MR2 which has a leaked version you can install. I'm waiting on the OTA, probably will come close to the end of the month.

    MR2 is maintenance release 2 which fixes the problems caused by MR 1. You have to download it with your computer, put it into the root folder on the SD card. Then turn the phone off. When you turn it back on hold the power and volume down key and it should go into the bootloader and start flashing it. I haven't did it, but that is what I understand the process is. Find the thread that has the update and they have the instructions. I am just waiting for the update to come ota.

    I posted this on the MR2 thread... this might help... you guys more on whats going on with the phone...

    "I have a question!? A buddy of mine has a T.B. and he did the 2.2.1 update and it now restarts all the time threw out the day...??? I dont really know whats up with that? We did the hard reset and its kinda helped but it still does it but not as often. He has an LTE switch to keep his phone from getting 4G because he was told that 4G can kill your battery. Is this true? And if anyone may know whats going on with all the random restarts please let me know! =) oh and it restarts almost everytime he takes a phone call... Idk if that helps but let me know! Thanks so much! This forum is awesome!"
