    Default Tablet freezing and shutting down

    My Asus tf700t has been locking up and either shutting down and restarting on its own or requiring me to hold down the power button until it restarts. Anyone else having this problem or know a fix? I've deleted several recently added apps and checked for updates but that hasn't worked. Love my tablet but this is frustrating and annoying.

    Dude jb seems horrible for that. I downgraded to ICS.

    No more freezing, no more lag and no ree restarting.

    Just flash .30 ICS firmware in stock recovery

    I don't want to downgrade and friends with other tablets don't have trouble with jb. There has to be a bug fix.

    Jelly bean has been rock solid on my 700. Sounds like an urban myth.

    Have you tried to do a cold boot?
    That often clears up conflicts which may be residual even after deleting an app that caused problems.
    Shut down the tablet, hold the power button and the Volume DOWN button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. let go of them when you see the stock recovery screen and let the tablet boot normally.

    If that doesn't do it, you may have to look into hardware problems:
    Does it change anything if you run the tablet in power saving, balanced, or performance mode?
    Does it overheat? there are apps to check that in the play store.
    Good luck, don't give up-this is probably solvable.

    Edit: Try the cold boot first, and btw, your data is not affected by a cold boot, you won't loose anything. It just clears various caches - gives the tab a clean start so to speak.
    If that doesn't help, you may want to follow this thread over on the XDA forum: ★★ CleanROM Inheritance 3.x | DEODEX & ODEX | OC Kernel | OFFICIAL HELP THREAD ★★ - Page 20 - xda-developers
    Go to page 20, Laetus 1 seems to have a similar problem with random crashes and boots and ThatsOk, who's trying to help him, is a real quality guy.
    Somewhat different situation because that guy is on a custom ROM, but you may be able to learn something anyway.

    I get crashes from torrent downloads, internet, and some games. Originally it would just crash randomly but I did a system reset. Got tired of the lag which eventually lead up to a crash. :/

    ICS works flawless so I'm scared to upgrade again :-(

    Rooted it this time also

    I have the same problem, restart then freeze. It only comes back after a cold boot. Also a lot of freezes that are immediately resolved by hitting 'wait'. Tab is working great other than this so I don't want to do anything drastic. Any ideas?

    I am unlocked and rooted and enjoying CleanRom Inheritance. But I was experiencing random reboots both before and after unlocking. A kind soul on XDA walked me through my problem. I now haven't had a reboot in several days of heavy, varied use simply since ticking Force GPU Rendering under developers options. Helped me at least. Love this tab!

    Mine started doing the same thing last week, after three months of owning it.

    I read the info on the XDA forum and went to settings/developer options and turned on 'Force GPU Rendering'. That was several days ago and no more reboots or freezes. Thanks for the advice.
