First of all, random reboots. My s4 will reboot as stated...randomly. No rhyme or reason to it. It can just be laying there idle and out of nowhere...REBOOT. I'm on 4.3 mk2 if that helps.
Now the soft reboot. Or hot boot as I've also seen it called. Specifically related to xposed and associated modules. Or in my case, ALL modules. If I do a soft reboot everything runs perfectly. No problem at all. But a full reboot? Nothing xposed related runs. Not framework or modules. Of course the framework has to run for the modules to work. Is this normal? Does xposed only run after a soft reboot? From my searches on the net I'm inclined to say no. But I don't know for sure.
So there you go. Thanks for any help you can give me.
