Default [Q] Still having clear data randomly. Anybody found out why? 8 GB SD?

Hi guys.

I got a Galaxy Nexus long ago so I wasnt using my DS5 anymore.
Now I could give it to my father, BUT:
It still has the error of resetting once in a time.

I shut down the phone, start it again and it is set back to new flash. As if I did a clear data....

Has anybody found out why this is happening? I cannot give this phone away if this continues.
I have a 8 GB internal SD card. Could this be the problem? I simply cloned the 2 GB to the 8 GB and resized the partitions.

ROM is Traveller.

It's not just my ROM, but all Gingerbread ROMs. There is a bug where the Streak may reboot if it isn't actively used.

The solution I found is that when you put the Streak down for the night, say to go to sleep, put the Streak into airplane mode and take it off airplane mode when you first go to use it the following day. Note that this bug appears to only occur on WiFi, with mobile data unaffected. Also, reduce the number of widgets you have running, as too many widgets suck up the remaining RAM and will cause spontaneous reboots outside of the bug I just mentioned.

I haven't had a spontaneous reboot in over a month, and currently my mobile data is inactive.

Q: Can someone suggest a link I can follow that will walk me through the root process for this phone?
A: Simple answer is no. Do your homework. No spoonfeeding here. Check the stickies and the search engine. You'll find it soon enough.
