well i never had this kind of problem of rebooting... you have root but you cant see it as you dont have root access. i think you got this error as you dont have root access. ya settings then click on settings at the top portion you will see clear device i think that will do. i dont know exactly as i have never done it..
to be able to get root access you need to download rootsh form therepositories, then to be root type 'sudo gainroot' definately upgrade to the latest version, avi if running old firmware option to clean phone isnt there its a pr1.2 feature. the only way to totally clean phone is to flash it, both the os and the emmc. makes a hell of a difference though and sounds like u need it.
i didnt knew about that clean phone thing that it isnt present in old firmware as my phone came updated. you are using N900 from so long thats why you have so much knowledge bro by flashing you mean reinstalling firmware?
yeah reinstalling firmware, but the brest way to do it is to downoad the image and flash it to the device. at first seems really scary process but its actually very quick and efficient, takes only couple of minutes
