This has probably been posted before but im in a hurry and i can't go looking through threads.

My Galaxy randomly reboots, ill be sitting playing ps3 and i see it reboots itself. My friend says its a problem with my kernel, but if it is. How would i fix that? I only know how to flash roms and thats bout it.

Check under settings > about phone and where it says kernel but I'm sure ur on the roms kernel so just try flashing Anton's kernel its on dev thread and you flash it like u would a rom

I had the same problem. My phone would reboot once a day, at least. Usually, when I was asleep. I was using Val-Final. Since flashing AntonX's OC/UV kernel, I haven't had a single reboot.

hate to dredge up an aging topic, but my wife's t959v has started exhibiting undesirable behavior including momentary freezes while in use and random rebooting. it's running gingerbread kj6 rooted (from lumin30's guide here) with the following details:

firmware 2.3.6
baseband t959vuvkj6
kernel 2.6.35.7-t959vuvkj6-cl694130
build gingerbread.vuvkj6

now i'm infinitely more comfortable flashing kernels and the like with my htc sensation, mostly due to the fact that i don't need to mess around with kies/odin/heimdall. is that AntonX kernel fairly universally seen as a reboot fix? usually i'd dive in and just flash it, but last i heard, cwm restores don't work on the t959v, so i'm a bit wary.

thanks in advance all

The CWM issue was fixed when bhundven started with CWM 5. It's the older version that had an issue. The newer version is in Bryan's & AntonX's kernels and should not be an issue as far as I know.

Flashing Anton's kernel will fix the random reboot issue assuming you're using one of the kernels that exhibited that behavior vs. something else going wrong with the phone. There's a link to it in my signature if you choose to use it.

Good luck

awesome, great to hear about the newer CWM at the very least we've got two identical t959v phones (mine isn't rebooting randomly, but also isn't a daily use phone, natch) so i'll flash the new nifties on my "disposable" first. thanks much for your help!
