    Default Random Reboot
    My iphone is randomly doing a running restart, like the one that occurs when you change a theme.

    Randomly when I am sending a text or looking through music my phone will freeze and the little loading icon will appear in the middle and you will be booted to the locked screen.

    This is becoming annoying, is there a software bug that is causing this? My phone is 1.1.2, can I virginize/restore and start new to remove this problem?

    Do you have Summerboard installed? and if so is DIM background turned on? Turn it off.

    Nothing really. That's been the only source found for random crashes.

    And is there a way to restore? or will a normal restore brick it?

    No need to restore. If it does keep happening, restore to 1.1.1, do the OKtoprep thing again and update.

    Nope. Restore to 1.1.1, jailbreak and install OKtoPrep, UPDATE to 1.1.2
