    Default Galaxy SII rebooting every 5-10 seconds

    Literally. Overheats itself in the process. I know it's an older model but my contract is still running, so I see no reason to excuse this EVER.

    What is going on and how do I fix it?

    Welcome to Android Central! A few things you could try:

    1. Try a new battery. Yours might be dying. A quick way to confirm is to remove your battery, place it on flat on a table, and try to spin it. If it spins freely, it's bulging in the middle, which confirms that it's failing. But even if it doesn't spin, it's still worth trying a new one.

    2. If you have an SD card, remove it. A corrupt SD card can cause problems. Make sure you unmount the card first, in Settings>Storage.

    3. Try booting into Recovery Mode and wiping the cache partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Try booting into recovery mode and wiping the cache partition. Depends on the model, but the button combo should be home + power + volume up. Then use the volume buttons to navigate and the power button to select the options.
