    Atrix keeps rebooting

    I was woken up at 3am to the sound of my phone restarting itself over and over. If kept flashing the "...stopped unexpectedly" signs. From the ones I remember it was Webtop, Google talk, Bluetooth, Motorola services that kept saying they needed to force close. Then it would just shut itself off and reboot. I had fallen asleep using my phone but had woken up earlier and plugged it into the charger at about 2am? I think. I had been halfway laying on it but it wasn't hot or anything. Before I fell asleep I had updated 2x Battery-Battery Saver by Sam Lu (from the Android Market) and installed App 2 SD Pro from the Amazon app market - it was the free app of the day so I thought I'd try it. Strangely it was also by Sam Lu. I was finally able to get into the phone after removing the battery and uninstalled both programs and installed Lookout to scan for viruses(there were none) and it seems ok now. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Hopefully it was just unstable apps and nothing more serious. PS. I had to remove the battery 2x's before it would stay somewhat stable long enough for me to get into the manage apps and uninstall.

    Hi and welcome to the site.

    It sounds like they (or at least one of them) were apps that didn't play nice with others. I would guess the battery saver would have been the culprit, but that's just my guess.

    If it happens again for any reason, you can boot into safe mode and should have access to remove the apps you think might be causing the issue. Here are instructions on how to get into Safe Mode: [How To] Safe Mode

    Yes one of the big faults of android apps that conflict to the point of messing up your phone

    BTW, App2SD is built into Gingerbread on the Atrix.

    I don't know. I didn't actually install it since the functionality it provides is already baked into the Atrix Gingerbread.
