Random Reboots On Pixel Devices Should Be Fixed With The October Security Patch



Some Pixel owners have reportedly been experiencing random reboots on their device post updating to Oreo. Google was aware of the issue and has been working on a fix ever since. This hasn't been an easy issue to solve since Google has had a hard time in pinpointing the problem leading to the random reboots.

There are Pixel devices which would work fine at a stretch of days without rebooting even once and then would reboot multiple times in a span of minutes. Other users who have been plagued by the issue have reported of facing random reboots every now and then. The developers at Google believe that this issue is either triggered when launching the Picture-in-Picture mode in YouTube's application or because of the fd leak. In either case, the issue should be fixed with the October security patch.

Google released the October security patch earlier this morning. If you happen to have a Pixel device, you can try pulling up the update by heading over to Settings > About phone > Check for updates and then manually checking for the update. Else, you can wait for the OTA notification to reach your device. Additionally, you can install the update manually by flashing either the factory or OTA image of the update.
