Maybe it's the app Micro CPU monitor? It has an option to show all cores seperately and also starts on boot.
I've been able to produce a reboot myself: When switching from eco mode to quad-core with a tegra game playing in background.
So it's very likely that apps that access the processor can cause reboots.
BTW some fun facts taken from downloads of this App:
  • The Phone is called P880 3x instead of 4x on the Play Store
  • Half of the phones seem to be in used in HongKong and Taiwan
  • 10 percent in Italy
  • 5 percent China, 5 percent Germany, 5 percent Russia, 5 percent Thailand
  • USA and Great Britain didn't even make the list.

Just my 2 cents.

Power + Vol Up is download mode
Power + Vol Down is recovery
Power + Vol Down while connected to pc is software update mode and it is for flashing firmware or updateing via pc suite


I had problems with my O4X for no reason last night, it froze in the camera app and after I pulled the battery it would get stuck with the logo or a lockscreen with black behind it. I fixed this from recovery with a factory reset. I was not using the app from this thread, nor other hardware control apps. Firmware V09b.

Hi,

Power + Vol up and hold for 10 seconds and it will run a reset so I did not remove the battery

I tried this QuadGearBox options but whenever I try to check the Eco-mode box it immediately unchecks itself again... I seem to be unable to use this option?
I have the Euro Open V10F stock ROM.
