Phone automatic restart error

I'm having an issue. Since I've updated to Kitkat and wicked kk, my phone randomly reboots.

I've tried factory reset, clear cache, clear dalvik.

I've even odin the stock rom and started over.

I've formatted the internal and sdcard, and changed sims.

I've also tried changing the Kernel

Someone in another thread stated it may be a bad download, so I downloaded again, which also didn't work.

I'm out of ideas, but it's still happening. Any idea how to fix?

I'm on Wicked rom

Have you tried to remove the external sdcard from the phone before
odin flashing the stock Samsung N900T 4.4.2 kitkat firmware/rom and
before rooting the phone and or flashing custom recovery?
(only flash the stock firmware for this test and nothing else.)


If you have not tried that, give it a try and remember to leave the
external sdcard out of the phone for a few hours after oding flashing
the stock rom to see if it still has the rebooting issue.


If your phone no longer reboots itself after trying this it means you
have either a defective external sdcard or you need to format the
sdcard using fat32 format.


Good luck!

thank you.

I've actually tried that too, but still get the error. I never had this problem on the last rom version (4.3)

I don't know. It's a weird error

What kernel and governor are you using?, intellidemand in previous builds was known to cause random reboots. Flash a newer kernel, I recommend leankernel 2.5.1

Flash a custom recovery and flash the efs-bootloop fix thats available in another thread, it basically wipes your efs.

If that doesn't resolve your issue, you may have to warranty the phone...

Ok, I odined a stock rom, and it is still doing it.

I'm pretty sure it's something related to the system partition. Right before it reboots, every system app freezes. I can't use the phone app, settings, wifi stops working, etc.

Oddly though, when I flashed the odin rom, none of the system settings changed. It still has my system the way it was. I tried the format partition in recovery, and that didn't work either. Is there any way to format the /system? as I think that may be the issue.
