Default Help me diagnose my soft reboots.

Every now and again (6 times yesterday) I get soft reboots (back to bootanimation) on my Device. (While running almost every ROM, although I am running CM7 RC1 at the moment)

The next time it happens, what would be the best thing to look at? LogCat or kmsg?

I would like to figure out if it is the ROM or a rouge (crashing) app that is causing the problem?

If there is anymore info that would help, please let me know?

Thanks

Stew

This is a bug in all 2.3 AOSP ROMS.

I am pretty sure that it has done it on every rom I have tried (including 2.1, stock sense), this is what is making me think it is a rouge app.

Do you use setcpu? Custom kernels?

I have done in the past. But at the moment I am using cyanogenmod settings to manage the cpu (min 245 max 998) and using stock cyanogenmod RC1 kernel. Using ondemand governer at the moment too.

It has happened while using other Kernels too though.

Thanks

You should know that I started to have these soft boots a few weeks ago on my unbranded, unrooted, un-anything Desire. it has all the available updates. I have not changed anything major in it, just installed programs, but nothing like a task manager or other utility of this sort. Still, I get reboots a couple of times a week, sometimes when I am calling someone, or when someone calls me.
