TinkerboardOS 2.0.3 Review
#1
TinkerboardOS is now a fine operating system.  Everything is working for me.  There are some issues still for some users, but given enough time they too will get fixed.  
Please install firefox quantum soon.
Good job.

What OS did you install?
What power supply amps?  Should be 3 amps with a thick cable and switch.
What microSD card brand?
Are you using a heatsink and fan?

Right Click on the panel>panelSettings>panelApplets>add>temperatureMonitor
See the temp of the cpu on the right side of the panel in green.

hi,

the OS is Debian 9 2.03
power supply is asus 5v 2.A from my ASUS table 
micro SD is Toshiba 8gb
with heat sink and without fan,

as your comment, it could be the 2.A is not enough power for the package ? 
while this 5V 2.A work fine with my previous PI

Tinkerboard can easily go over 2A + most micro USB cables/connector were not designed to sustain very high currents.
Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

It's been solid for me. I have a fan and 3amp to the gpio
pins. I would also recommend doing an expand filesystem using the configuration tool, after burning the image.
I had a hang once the first time I tried it, but nothing since.
I've done an apt-get upgrade also

The Tinker has more power than the PI. 1.8ghz and can do 4k video.
2A is fine if you don't do any video.
What's going on when it reboots?  Can you tell if it is video or a webpage?
Is it too many tabs opened in chromium?
