    Oddly enough, I'm back to rebooting after several weeks of great performance. Like Epyon, mine seems to reboot when it makes a bluetooth connection in my car. Not all the time - but perhaps 10% of the time. I see my car say "Connected to Windows Phone" and then I see the HTC logo out of the corner of my eye.

    Otherwise, nothing has changed on the phone (aside from app updates)

    Is everyone that posts they are having the reboot issue using live folders on the start screen? I have a Lumia phone. When I started to use the live folders, I would have random reboot problems. When I removed the live folders, I no longer have reboots. For my phone it seems to be a flaw with the live folders.

    I have always used live folder tiles with never a reboot.

    I use the folders and don't have any reboot issues, but I do have an inconsistent issue with my phone (M8) overheating still. The reboot issues seemed to go away with that HTC update a while back, but these issues with the phone going nuclear still seem to be around. Sometimes when it happens, I'll just put it in airplane mode for a while, then when I turn it all back on, it's fine. It's so random.

    Maybe another idea is how many live tiles are on the start screen including all in the live folder. Possibly having to many is causing a strain on resources enough to cause rebooting. That might be the flaw, just a thought

    That's an interesting thought because I had tons of folders with lots of apps. I could try again with less apps and folders. Also I have not tried again since the latest dev preview update...could be fixed

    No more reboots. I just updated to latest developer preview 8.1.1 maybe this was included as a fix?

    I'm having the rebooting issue as well, and I do indeed have a lot of live tiles (including two folders with 3-4 tiles each). I like my start screen to have a lot of activity and tiles so I'm kind of annoyed that the OS can't handle it. I'll just live with the rebooting for now.

    I bought my wife the HTC M8 last week and we noticed the reboots. Verizon support suggested taking it back to the store but before doing that I thought I would try HTC support. I gave them my IMEI number and did the live chat. The support technician almost immediately said the rebooting was a known issue and HTC is working on a fix that will be delivered OTA. Support indicated that the issue was related to too many live tiles onto the start screen. A temporary solution is to remove live tiles until the rebooting stops. I've not decided what to do, as we are still in our 14 day period I could return but Verizon doesn't really offer any other Windows Phones.

    I also called HTC because my phone rebooted it self and just like with CAMertens they told me it is a known issue from having to many live tiles and they are working on an OTA update to correct it.

    Is anyone having these reboots after upgrading to Windows Mobile Build 10536.1004 ?
