And/or an illegal argument passed in to the method which is probably a result of the bad null value pointer. I also have seen reports of this reboot issue from half a year ago on nexus devices. So it disturbs and concerns me that Google refuses to treat this as a high priority problem to fix. It leads me to believe that they can't figure it out after all this time. Maybe they need to hire more talent. It just doesn't make sense that they would ignore it for this long and not rate it as a very high priority.


hmmm... very interesting. under what conditions is this method called?

I can cause a reboot 100% of the time under following conditions:

- Using Android Transfer Utility to transfer multiple files (say more than 20) or any 'large' (> 250MB) file. I have a Macbook Pro.
- using tTorrent to download anything - uTorrent does not cause crashes (but is way suckier than tTorrent!)

in addition, pretty much ANY heavily processor intensive activity - or perhaps R/W activity? - will have at least a 50% chance of causing a reboot.

I'm not getting a lot of random reboots, but my main problem is that when I do get them i usually have some sort of data corruption too. Such as when I reboot I have to do the tablet setup process. My apps are still there but they loose all their settings. It's really making me start to hate this tablet.

Mine also and rapidly hang or auto restart in stock especially using chrome and with HD widget on.

Now running CM10.1 without chrome and no HD widget, everything seems much better, the hang seems not happen anymore and restart was rarely happen. For the moment, I think this was the temporary solution.

AW: Nexus 10 freezing and rebooting
I think the crashes are mostly related to the new multi user feature. They are happening much more often in my second account and I am experiencing no crashes with my Galaxy Nexus running also 4.2.1.

I also read about users saying they reseted to stock settings, did not set up a second account and are not experiencing crashes then.

Re: Nexus 10 freezing and rebooting
I have not experience the reboots since I got the 4.2.2 update, maybe they fixed it?

I hate you.
I have gone from enjoying my tablet to waiting for the reboots to start again every time you post.

In all seriousness it sucks. Do your logs look the same or something new?

Can we mass complain and ask for a google play credit/small refund for all this time we have been beta testing?
It is getting REALLY annoying after all this time...

Strange. I've got close to 200 hours uptime on my N10 running stock 4.2.2 (although my N10 is unlocked and rooted), with zero lagging, freezing or reboots.... I wonder what's different in our setups that could account for our differing experiences...?

Honestly, I don't know how to interpret the logs, but I do have several bug reports from when I was on 4.2.1 and one now that I am on 4.2.2, so I could always go and look if I learn how.

Today I did a full wipe and re-flash of 4.2.2 and this time I didn't restore my apps or settings from Google. I also didn't set up a 2nd user like I did last time. No reboots yet but it has only been 10 hours.

If that approach worked, we could all sue Microsoft for 30+ years of beta testing, and we could all retire...

You can find millions of hits if you search for iPad 3 light leak or light bleed, and Apple's mapping and navigation provided some good diversion in recent months, yet I don't see people lining up to demand refunds from Apple. Home routers and access points are notorious for having decent hardware and bug-ridden firmware, and the device is generally obsolete and unsupported a year after being released. In most of the free markets, you have a choice about which companies you patronize, which product you purchase with your money, and in most cases, you can return the item for a refund within some established time frame and conditions. I'm not thrilled with the current state of the consumer electronics market, except for the fact that it's evolving incredibly quickly, and the cost for features continues to drop at an amazing rate (witness, for example, the evolution of solid state drives and the concurrent drop in prices).

Sure - I'd like things to be more mature on product release -- I'm not a glutten for punishment. But I've got to say that my Android phone (Galaxy Nexus) and tablets (N10 and N7's) pretty much blow away any other devices I've used or owned before these for similar purposes. Knowing that this market sees many devices released prematurely, I try to do as much homework in advance as I can, and make an informed choice about the trade-offs between new features and proven, but older, designs. Similar to an investment portfolio strategy, I know my own tolerance for risk and frustration, and balance that against my desire for innovation -- and choose accordingly. In a less than perfect market, Caveat Emptor still applies.
