Ive been having trouble with my N1 rebooting itself the last coupe of weeks and it happened again last night when it was sat in its dock. I removed the battery and left it on the desk otherwise it wouldve been stuck in the reboot cycle all night.

I put it all back together this morning nut now it thinks its 9.34am this morning. Ive unchecked and rechecked the 'auto sync' option, switched it on and off again myself and Ive tried swapping between 3G and wireless but no change.

I can obviously set it manually, but I would rather it sync'd or least know what the problem is.

Anyone have any ideas ?

Cheers

Back up your data and do a factory reset. You may also need to get a new microsd card. The one you have may have errors...and if you have apps2sd using it, that could be part of the problem.

Try the factory reset first....and any errors on the sdcard would / should appear afterward if you start using apps2sd. At that point, you'd get a new sdcard and do another factory reset (just to be safe). 

I'm assuming you're on a stock rom and the phone isn't rooted.

If neither of these suggestions work, then it will be something else...and harder to fix. If it's software, you can reset or flash a new ROM entirely. If it's hardware...then you'll either work around it or get a new phone. If you got it via Vodafone NZ you may be able to invoke the warranty.

I just had problems with my nexus (had to get it replaced) if it reboots when it charging have a look how hot the phone is (dial *#*#info#*#* on the key pad) under battery info you will find battery temp, this is the temp of the phone, if its around 37 degrees you have a stuffed phone.

There is a fault with a batch of nexus 1's that had bad mother boards and would start rebooting thinking it was over heated at 37 degrees.

Good test is to plug it in and play youtube for 10 - 20 mins, then check battery info, if its over 40 degrees your phones fine, its it keep rebooting then you have the bum one.

Thanks guys,

LL, yep, stock rom and not rooted. This issue started when in Auckland over Christmas using the maps whilst listening to music so I assumed it was just doing too much and over heating.

Recently however its happened twice in the evening when its just sat in its dock and it happened again last night, with the clock stuck at the time it rebooted.

Ill try the factory reset and will see if I can get another sdcard aswell.

MrToken, I wondered if it was a temperature thing aswell especially after the first time it happened, but the last two occasions its been in its dock and stone cold so perhaps the motherboard is at fault.

Im also having to switch it on and off a lot these days as the screen becomes unresponsive quite often.

Cheers

Yes. It doesnt happen everynight either.

When it does happen though there is no option but to pull the battery. Once it reboots, its fine for 30 seconds or so and then reboots again.

I had issues with my screen no longer responding on my Galaxy S when I was charging using a USB cable attached to a wall charger, i think due to incorrect voltage or something.

Whats the best way to do a backup ? Im searching and finding people like Titanium but am I right in thinking it only does apps ?

Also smsbackup takes care of my texts, but is there something which does everything ? Texts, photos apps the lot ?

What about how my homescreen is configured, will I just have to do all that again ?

You need to send it away to get a new motherboard, i think you have cooked it :(

Mine was doing the reboot - pull battery and getting in a boot loop, had to pull battery and let it sit for 10 mins before rebooting, mine was happening at 37 degrees however
