    Mine still randomly reboots and I've removed HD Widgets from the lock screen.

    I never had a problem with HD widgets and I still continue to use it.

    After removing HD widgets, the random reboots stopped for a bit. Now it happens here and there, but has been happening more often.

    Rather than regurgitating everything here, check out this thread at XDA: 4.2 random reboots - xda-developers

    The Reader's Digest condensed version: The only reliable way to stop the reboots is to disable location access in the Nexus 7's settings. Obviously that means that Google Now and Maps won't work, but it's better than rebooting. Google has acknowledged this and is working on a fix.

    FWIW, my username is revmra over there so you can see the hoops I've already jumped through to try to nail this down. There are links to the Google bug reports there too.

    This is the same thing on the nexus 10 as well. Disable location access and you should be okay.
