    Random reboots, widgets disappearing - possible cause?

    Reboots were getting bad. Did a couple of things to try to find out cause. Last thing was removing the weather clock widget from my homepage.

    No reboots since. Can anyone confirm or disprove? Any other guesses? Logs seem to get wiped, so no help there.

    I am thinking a memory leak in a particular app that is common.

    hey salas is there anyway for someone to update if they are running a custom rom? i dont have a stock rom handy to flash back to. All i have seen is stock recovery.img on the forum and oriax's optimized stock rom which does not work with the update. any work around or way to flash back to the stock rom and update?

    im asking because im having these problems on revokster.

    Saying that some unknown update fixes the problem isn't really the same as root cause analysis.

    But it can provide a piece of the puzzle.

    well, im thinking that the weather clock probably refreshed on wake. now while the device is sleeping the cpu is probably running at a low speed of 368mhz. this is probably maxed out after the device wakes up and tries to refresh the weather widget, so the cpu gets maxed out because it doesnt have enough time to up the speed, due to the 5 second sampling rate(i think thats it). so then with a cpu overload the system freezes and restarts.
    simple terms
    -device asleep(screen off), cpu @ 368mhz
    -device wakesup(screen on), weather widgets attempts to refresh, live wallpaper attempts to continue (if you have a live wallpaper) ,
    -cpu stuck @ 368mhz because of 5 second sampling rate.
    -cpu overloads, system restarts.

    as for the widgets, that has to do with the internal memory

    but this is just a complete guess.

    i am going to turn off "refresh on wake" on my beautiful weather widget and see if it still keeps happening.

    Salas, you say you had the Cricket upgrade right? Could be why the widget works for you, but causes problems for others. I really wish we could capture a log when the problem occurs.

    would be interesting to perhaps compare checksums of salas's apk, and ours.
