As one who has suffered from random reboots and so called BSODs with my stock ROM, I can say that I have not had any stability problems with the Modaco ROMs since Fr18 was released. This includes the current GR1/2 ROMs, and GR2 with the MCK custom kernel which are absolutely rock solid in my experience.
I agree with those above who are suggesting that the problem has been a combination of hardware (probably some out-of tolerance component/s) and software.
Those that had good hardware from the beginning, such as myself, had their problems solved with the later software updates that were released. These releases always found their way into the custom ROMs that I have been using since I first got rid of stock which is why I dare say we have had very stable MCR ROMs since Fr18, with the help of some expert tweaking from Paul of course
Those that had bad hardware (out of tolerance component/s) have continued to have stability problems even with the software updates. IMO if you are still having problems on the current custom ROMs, you should return the phone to claim warranty ASAP. I do not believe waiting for the official gingerbread ROM will solve your problem. Then again I might be wrong, but the current G2X experience with their official gingerbread update does not look promising.
Now, all that said, I think we have to make a distinction between random reboots, and reboots or FCs caused by incompatible apps as we upgrade to Gingerbread such as we are doing now with the GR1 and GR2 ROMs.
Yes, I have had some FC and reboots on GR1 and 2, but these are not random. They were caused by apps that I have had for a long time and worked perfectly with the FR ROMs but are not compatible with gingerbread. So keep this in mind when you are faced with a reboot or FC on the GR ROMs. Some offending apps that I have noticed are some of the well known lockscreen replacements. Look first at whether the app is designed for gingerbread before anything else. Personally, I have culled out all the offending apps now and found replacements that are designed for gingerbread.
My two cents worth
