My HW Rev is MP 1.100

Wondering if this means I am susceptible to the sudden death issue.

Yesterday morning I picked my phone up after it had been sitting on the table all night and the screen wouldn't turn on when I pressed the home button. The LED was flashing blue but it seemed unresponsive to all other button presses. I plugged it into the power and waited a few minutes and then tried again but still no response. Then just as I was considering pulling the battery out it rebooted all by itself. After starting up the battery meter said it has 58% battery remaining. It's been ok since. I hope this isn't the start of the "sudden death"!

robfish has a new mother board and then his hardware version was 1.100, so I am guessing that's the version of motherboard that wouldn't have the "sudden death" issue..

I am kind of hoping as well coz mine is also the same version..Tongue Out

So are there any other revisions other than MP 1.1 I saw briefly somewhere its only the 16gb models with the issue. I'm assuming everyone in here on MP 1.1 is on the 16gb version?
