    I uninstalled HDwidgets a few days ago and mine hasn't rebooted since. I used to have reboots twice a day, sometimes even more.
    If HDwidgets didn't solve your reboot problem, its probably another app you have installed.

    Mine reboots every so often, seemingly for no reason other than I'm reading a book on my Google 7.

    HD Widgets INSISTS it is not their app causing the reboot problems.

    Maybe so but if you have to un-install an app to stop a tablet from rebooting then it really doesn't matter who's at fault. I like HD widgets but I won't miss it if it makes my tablet reboot.

    I can't seem to start up my Nexus 7, at first it rebooted on the load screen after pressing down for 30 seconds and now I can't even get that screen. Any advice. Judging by the amount of issues this tablet has I'm beginning to regret my decision back in August.
    Edit: Got the nexus 7 lighting up, a beep, but then blackscreen

    I uninstalled HD Widgets for a few days and still had reboots. Last time it was while in the play store.

    Mine just rebooted itself while browsing the web first time it's ever done that. Hope if it's an issue they fix it soon.

    That stinks guys. . Since I removed hd widgets there hasn't been one reboot for me. Maybe there is another app causing this issue. Hopefully the reports keep coming in and we can figure this out.

    This all sounds similar to my issues.
    Tablet fine until 4.2 then when its off it will switch itself on and when locked will light up to the lock screen repeatedly.
    It also bombs out of apps to lock itself.
    Its not an app I removed them all.
    Its not WiFi
    I even unlocked. Routed. Flash recovery and installed glazed and after 3 hours it started again.
    As glazed 2.1 is based on 4.2.1 I think its definatly 4.2.1
    I'm going to try and flash stock 4.1.1 but I'm not holding out much hope.
    Google shouldn't release an update that's screws your tablet up.
    They should test it properly

    Can anyone one with this issue change your screen timeout to 30 mins and tell me if it makes any difference ?
    Thanks

    Mine is stock and reboots. However.... I have now uninstalled HD Widgets and Battery Widget Reborn.... no reboots that I've noticed yet anyway.

    I've had HD Widgets uninstalled for more than a week, and have had no reboots during that time. I don't care if it's a 4.2 issue or a HD Widgets issue. I'm convinced, at least in my case, that they were the issue.

    I have had Beautiful Widgets for years on my phone, and also have it on the N7. Their newest update has a lockscreen widget that looks very nice, for those that may be interested. I'll be interested to see if the reboot issue starts up again now that I have that on my lockscreen.

    I've noticed mine spontaneously reboots when a lot of apps that I have on Auto Update get to downloading at the same time also with a few applications open. Its just happened to me, right now.

    Update...my Nexus 7 rebooted while adding themes for Beautiful Widgets. The reboots may be due to app incompatibility and not an os bug, but I'm not a professional to make that determination.

    Okay, I had not had a reboot after removing HD Widgets, until the latest update of Beautiful Widgets showed up. Since I now could I put a BW Widget on my lock screen with a theme for a day and everything seemed fine. I added the original clock widget back to the lock screen and deleted the Beautiful Widgets Lock Screen Widget and next thing I new I had the X on the screen and was rebooting. I have now uninstalled BW completely and have gone back to the stock clock widget to see if that changes things. I'm starting to think something is funky with the new widget capabilities...

    So in summary, HD Widgets the version before the current one seemed to cause reboots. The latest Beautiful Widgets version also seems to cause an issue (when uninstalling the widget from the lock screen? could someone else try this?).

    Just to complicate things further...Beautiful Widgets worked for me until the last update. It rebooted while the app was trying to update, so I removed it from the lockscreen.

    I have had the latest HD Widgets reinstalled, with the lockscreen widget, for more than a week with no reboots. The folks at HD had posted on their site that they had a work around, so I thought I would give it a try. So far so good, but I don't think that HD had updated since I reinstalled it.

    It seems to me to be something with updates and the lockscreen.

    Mine only reboots once every day.but I'm having other issues. When I don't press anything it randomly clicks something. Also when I click lthe screen it doesn't respond or it clicks in the opposite side of the screen. It is hard to do stuff on it. Before this happened it was a great tablet
