Default I747 Random Reboots with 4.3 roms

Hello,
I have been flashing some different roms lately, and I really wanted to stay on a 4.3 rom because 4.4 roms are having bluetooth issues, and I cannot connect it with my car.

When I flash a 4.3 rom like Slimbean or CM 10.2. I always get random reboots. It will happen if its just sitting there, or if I am doing something.

I've done a full reset, format, and flash, and I even let it just sit with nothing installed after the flash, but it still reboots randomly. I read a thread about the kernel being a problems. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thank you,

- |-Goku-|

I have no issues with CM 10.2 and I am running the kernel that comes with it. What bootloader are you on?

CWM is the recovery. Which bootloader is on your phone?

Gah, my bad. I've done some searches, and can't figure out how to check the bootloader. Can you point me to a thread?

Okay, you're running a 4.3 bootloader which means you cannot downgrade the bootloader. Attempting to do so could brick your phone.

I recommend that you install the latest CWM and flash a ROM based on TW 4.3. I believe Slimbean is based on a CM.

Sounds good. Do you have any recommendations for a TW 4.3 rom? And would you have any guess as to why it would be randomly rebooting?

There are a few TW-based ROMs in the development section. I would start there.
