Default [Q] Restarting

My phone (as of this morning) has gotten into the habit of restarting every five minutes. It's slightly annoying.

Any advice or help?

Thanks guys!

the one from this thread- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ight=format+sd

im also using the Vlahala Black Final ROM - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1404863 (which disappointed me because it does not offer all the customization shown in the previews. But thats a different story.

I installed the kernels and rom on Thursday, and didn't start having this problem until this morning.

I re-flashed the ROM and am still having the same problems. And it also seems to be knocking out my data.

I tried to use http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1358498 to unroot to get back to stock, however it won't let me cause it does not recognize the drivers.

What can i do?

Read the guide in the second link of my signature to help you with the One-Click and Driver issue. The screenshots in the VB thread are from an earlier release. You can customize whatever you want with any ROM by using a different launcher and themes for the different launchers in the market. The launcher is a small part of the ROM itself.

GoLauncher EX is what I use and is VERY customizable.

That one has the reboot issue. You can update to bryan's latest kernel ([KERNEL] (BETA) bhundven's SMS KJ6 v0.2.0 [Apr 11]) but note that although the reboots go away the battery will drain faster.

That's not uncommon. It usually happened to me around 24 hours after installing the kernel.

That's Heimdall, which uses open source USB drivers vs. the Samsung ones. You may need to uninstall the Samsung drivers because they have a tendency to conflict with the Heimdall ones. Also, try a different USB port as that sometimes makes a difference for people.

Ive used Heidlman before. It won't find any drivers this time. I followed the instructions to install the drivers and that part of the program does not recognize anything from my phone.

Also, the screenshots are not the release we are downloading and need to be changed. (my main gripe is with the contacts screenshot as that is not something that can be easily changed in another app/launcher) [but again, thats not a discussion particularly for this thread]

Trying the new kernel now. Thanks.

Will let you know how it goes.

I'd uninstall both the Samsung and Heimdall driversand reinstall the Heimdall drivers to see if it helps.

Lumin's guides rock; you may want to follow one of those to see if it helps as well.

I use GoContacts from the market which includes a dialer. Themes for that as well.

And I am going to ignore your complaints instead of gratitude for somebody taking the time to make a badass ROM for all of us. If you think something should be done differently build your own ROM and do what you think is best.
