    Phone keeps rebooting after Android 4.1 update

    I recently got upgraded to the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Android.
    Love the changes but I have one big issues with it:

    My phone shuts down and reboots at least once a day, sometimes 3-4 times a day.
    Has anyone else had this problem or knows how to fix it?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I have been having this same problem and its pretty frustrating. My phone is stock and unrooted, does anyone know the steps I should take to try and solve the problem?

    The first week I got my Nexus it would also reboot quite frequently while on 4.0.2 after that week it happens less and less. Then when I got 4.0.3 it started to do the same thing then it got better. This time around with 4.1 it's the worst it's ever been and I'm kinda tired of it rebooting while trying to use the phone.

    I would greatly appreciate any help anyone has to offer. I'm going to try and search the forum to see if I can find my answer.

    I too have this issue, since the Verizon JB update. My phone seems to reboot at least 7-12 times in a day, which inturn is causing my battery life to really get reduced. Not sure if its an app issue or not. Is there a diagnostic log or dump file that can be looked at for clues on what is causing the reboots to occur? My phone is not rooted...

    Try booting into safe mode. This will bypass all downloaded apps. Press and power button and when power menu shows up press and hold reboot menu. Safe mode option should be there. More than likely you have apps not compatible with jb.

    Thank you for your help.

    While using my phone in safe mode I had no more problems with my phone rebooting all the time. So I figured it was one of my apps not working with JB. I have since deleted Volume+ and one other app (I will figure out which and post later) and I have had no other problems since with my phone randomly rebooting

    I am still having this issue with my phone. Any luck on figuring out what apps are conflicting?

    I'm experiencing the same problem with my GN. It has 7GB free. Is there no way to determine which application(s) is causing the problem?

    Re: Phone keeps rebooting after Android 4.1 update

    I am experiencing the same problems with my GN since last update 4.2.1.
    It looks likes the phone reboots but it does'nt realy reboot i guess, it only brings up the Nexus X that is also shown at startup.
    Also encountered problems with
    Volume +
