I'm hoping I did not receive a defective device... can someone confirm that this is not hardware related??
Mine was also rebooting. So, i unrooted, wiped, and the rerooted. So far, it's been very stable. I installed xposed today. No problems yet, but i only have a few modules installed.

Cheers,

I'm pretty sure it's fixable. I've seen random reboots on most of my devices from time to time. Just need to find the app or configuration that is causing it.

For me is seems that it was freezing Knox that was causing the reboots. Once I unfroze it, no more random reboots. Then I installed a custom ROM with Knox removed and all is good.

I agree. That does seems to be the difference here, too.

Default reboot

the reboots are only with root. I tried many root methods, always reboots.
Now i flashed the F3 Firmware on my t325 , dont root and no reboots since 1 week.

Something makes trouble in our devices if its rooted.

I'm rooted with no reboots. I didn't disable knox. Everything is very stable.

I rooted my 8.4 with towel root. It always rebooted (or maybe just reset) every time I turned it off when certain applications were running (Amazon Kindle, MX Player, and some others). For some reason all I had to do was reinstall the apps and I no longer had any rebooting problems.

Default Solution

I updated my T520 from NAE to NG1 using Odin and rerooted it with CF method and I was experiencing random reboots. I did tow things:

1. I defrosted the knox notifications in TB (I had disabaled it when super user asked me to...)
2. I went to SuperSU app's settings under cleanup I tapped reinstall and followed the given commands there...

I have not had a single reboot since then and it's been 2 days now...
I just wanted to share this with those that are having random reboots. Give it a try... It worked for me.
