About 2 days ago I awoke to find that I had great difficulty in getting my Jasjar to reboot at all. It would hardly respond.
I tried a few soft resets 1st, often it would get to the blue Imate screen then die.
I resorted to the hard Reset but even then it would not respond well, sometimes it would stoip after the blue imate screen, sometimes there would be wierd colour configurations on the screen.
I was very worried and I thought I might have a fatal problem-I remembered reading stories in Club Imate of this sort of thing to other people who had recently done a ROM upgrade.

lIt does appear that the Jasjar has become extremely unstable after the ROM upgrade.

Anyway to cut a long story short after about 2-3 attempts doing the hard reset I finally managed to get going and got it booted uo.
Luckily also I had a recent back up on the SD card by SPB Backup and so I was able to get all the software back in without to much effort.
I would have to say trhat since then everything has been running very smoothly with no hickups whatsoever.
Ive been having fun with PocketIRC as well.
So heres hoping-im still wondering if the temperature has something to do with it-cause It was a reasonably cold morning that day and its been not so cold since.
The verdict is still out on that one

Similar thing happen to my apache after the ROM update.. it just kept restarting after getting to the Telecom screen. After changing the battery it started to work properly. Then I checked first battery and it was about 50%.
