As of tonight, my Nexus 4 which has proven generally reliable since I bought it some time ago when I started with Koodo, was in a reboot loop after I tried to wake it up from sleeping. It kept rebooting a few seconds after I had unlocked the screen.
I am running KitKat 4.4 as I'd heard of some sizable problems with 5.0 and figured KitKat was working wel for me (until this point).
I was able to halt the reboot cycling (couldn't even turn the device off - it would cycle again) by turning Airplane mode on. Then it comes up and is stable.
If I turn on either Wifi while in airplane mode) or turn airplane mode off and disable Wifi leaving only 3G active, the phone goes back into the reboot loop.
I'm wondering if the Koodo SIM chip could somehow have given up the ghost or if some other network change might be involved?
Currently, until I get all my data (pics, docs, etc) off the phone, I see to have to keep it in airplane mode. Once I've saved everything, it would be possible to try a factory reset I suppose.
Thoughts? I don't want to try the 5.0 or 5.0.1 update while this rebooting loop is going on - it might mess up the update and brick my device.
