Default [Q] Freezing and rebooting?

It's happened several times in the past three weeks, seemingly at random. I'll either be texting or playing a game, and boom. Phone goes unresponsive for about 4 seconds and the boot animation pops up. Sure enough, it's reset.


I have no idea how to get logs or I'd post them. Googling around at the time of this post.


Nexus 5, black, 16g, AT&T and (rooted) stock ROM.

Not to my knowledge. If I am it's because an app I installed did it.

How can I check to be sure?

It's happened 4 or 5 times with Hangouts, at least once with Chrome and I don't recall what I was doing for the rest, I just made note of it resetting when I didn't intentionally turn it off myself.

What kernel are you using?

Try factory reset fixes 98% of problems

Would there be a quick way to restore my phone to the condition it's in (preferably without the hangups)? Because I'd like to avoid that option if possible.

I pulled a logcat off my phone (and let it run for quite some time, 77k lines. Eesh) and there's a few warnings that kept popping up that I don't know how to decipher since I'm not an Android developer.

-[edit]-

Sorry, stock kernel. Only non-stock thing I've done is root it and installed few apps that either need or work better with root permissions.

I find it odd that the phone would do this randomly considering you are running stock ROM and kernel and all you did was root. With that being said a factory reset is your best option. Use titanium backup or helium.

What method did you use to root?
