I've started using the Internet Sharing feature to share my mobile internet with my laptop. Sometimes stopping Internet Sharing causes the phone to instantly reboot. I don't know yet exactly how often this occurs, but I'd guess its somewhere near 1 out of 50 times, based on twice daily use and seeing this once every two weeks?

This also happens to my friends and my phone. I noticed this when i was setting up Internet sharing on my friends phone it just reeboted when i shut down Internet sharing. So for the fun of it i tried to replicate this on my own phone. To my greats suprize after a couple of tires my phone also rebooted. Both phones runs Taalojärvi ( This seems to happen to me if i have for some sake both mobilenetwork and wlan network active then you put on "internet sharing" and when you stop Internet sharing after a while the phone just reeboots whitout warning.

Sometimes the phone reboots the first time you close Internet sharing in the Event view, some times you have to do it 5 or 10 times before the phone boots. But sooner or later it will reboot.

I have got the phone to reeboot here now 5 times after i had to stop playing around and reboot the phone once properly because i almost didn't get my mobile-internet back on line after this brute force testing.

didn't really get any help from the log files /var/log/.. that could point me in a direction what goes down.

Hello LinuxByChoice I saw this happening on my device as well sometimes. So this is definitively something which I would like to see having investigated and fixed. Thank you. Kind regards, megalith
