Soft Reboot

My GF SGS is acting funny.

Is anyone else getting soft reboots, meaning the device reboots but not fully.
So only from the bootlogo.
Also the screen comes on automatically, without any reason.

The phone is on stock rom:
Kernel: K17-3
Filesystem: All Ext4

She didn't have any probs with the K17-2 kernel.

Any suggestions ?

flashed the kernel on jw8 (tried several jw8 roms) as I have done with kernels hundreds of times but am getting bootloops with this particular kernel on all jw8's. Flashing semaphore immediately remedies the problem. No other lagfixees in place, clean installs. Anyone else having problems?

    Hi guys,

    This is the SpeedMod kernel for Gingerbread.

    SpeedMod's core features are:
    - Super stable: No undervolting, overclocking or potentially unstable modifications
    - Fast and smooth: Compiler and code optimizations
    - Excellent battery life: Remove unecessary logging and debugging

    The K16 series works on older Samsung 2.3.x roms.
    The K17 series only works with the latest Samsung "Value Pack" 2.3.6 ROMs like XXJW4 / XWJW8.

    Wow, it happens that I live in a different timezone, wake up to see about a hundred posts debating about GPL and the thread is locked.

    That was a bit too much politic-ing for comfort, imo.

    Let me just make my points:

    1. It's been less than 24 hours since the first "demand" for source code was posted. I don't check XDA forums all day - I still go out, sleep and generally do other stuff. I think we should not over-react within such a short period of time, taking into account this website has a global audience living in different timezones and people here have a life outside of the forums.

    2. The Gingerbread version of my kernel is still a test release, I've barely been using it for 2 days and there have been bugs. I normally only release the source to a new version when it's out of the testing phase.

    3. The sources for the Froyo version are published, and whenever I have free time I will try to port over the code bit by bit. If other devs really want to know what I am doing the Froyo sources are available. I will be more than happy to explain certain changes I've made, time-willing and if asked politely.

    I'd like to thank the people who understood the situation and tried to explain it. Let's move on and get back to the usual business of kernel hacking. :)
    - Scheduler patched and tweaks adjusted
    - Cleanup to kernel configs

    This version is much smoother than previous ones. :)
