Random Reboot Investigation [FIX AVAILABLE FOR ROOTED TFs]
I bought my TF about 15 days ago, rooted it and installed CWM recovery, and it was running just great. Then, the ICS update came along and i just waited for the CWM package to update mine. No problems in the update process, but the random reboots started happening, so i thought the problem was that i updated without wiping, so i did this. No dice, still getting (not so) random reboots. So, i thought maybe it was the CWM package. I downgraded to HC via NVFlash, then let it update via FOTA. Even then, the random reboots persisted. Then, i noticed the tablet never rebooted while in use, but only while in deep sleep state. The "No Sleep" widget is the current workaround, but then, you risk getting a SOD.
So, from what i could gather until now, the following things are NOT the cause for the RRs:
1. Updating without wiping.
2. Updating via CWM.
Well, i got really sick of this problem, so it's time to do something about it. I am trying to gather as much info as possible to try and narrow down the possible cause for the random reboots, so i need everyone that is facing the same issue to give me the following info:
1. Serial number of your Transformer
2. Firmware region (TW, US or WW)
3. Logcat before the reboot
For number 3, you need to open Terminal Emulator, and do this:
# su -
# logcat > /sdcard/logcat.txt
Then you just turn off the screen and let your tablet go to deep sleep. After it reboots, post here the info above and attach logcat.txt.
Please, only use this thread to post the info i asked. Thanks!
Update: Some users contacted ASUS and it seems they are aware of the problem. A fix is supposed to released soon, in the form of another OTA update.
Update2: Very good knews for rooted users. The test13 version of guevor's kernel is able to let the TF deep sleep and not reboot. Link to his thread:
THANK YOU, GUEVOR!
