Bought used Droid, with 2.2 installed. Reboots.
So, after changing the oil in my car yesterday, I was smart and left my Moto Droid in the driveway during a thunderstorm. Overnight in rice didn't do it, she's toast.
Found a guy on craigslist nearby who was selling a Droid (he just bought the Evo). Before anyone might point out that I got scammed, this guy is straight up solid. He's a user on many of the Droid forums, I met him at his work, and we were on a 3 way call with Verizon to fix an issue with changing my number over to my 'new' phone.
Anyhow, the Droid I bought is rooted, is running 2.2 and has the 184.108.40.206 (P3Droid) kernel.
Since I got my this phone activated (about 10 hours ago now), I've had at least 9-10 reboots (that I've seen). I've seen a few other threads with this issue, but this is my question:
Obviously, how can I fix this? And as nice as 2.2 seems, I'd be fine with rolling back to 2.1, as this phone is basically my office, and can't have this many reboots.
If there's a kernal that's working better than the one I have, fine, help? But once again, dumping 2.2 and unrooting would be solid for me too. If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.
Sorry for the novel, I just wanted to be as specific as I could as to not leave anyone wondering what was wrong when attempting to help.
Thanks, in advance.

You can do a few different things. Just download the free ROM Manager from the Market where you can DL/Flash either Cyanogen or a Stock Image. If neither works try unrooting and start fresh.The Pipester has spoken.

Nice, I hope it works out for you. My phone has been a champ ever since deleting this application, no reboots to speak of.
I've been in touch with a guy at YouMail, and he's very concerned about getting this fixed. This was the first he's heard of it, surprisingly.
