I had a reboot on my uCSimm as well this morning, but it has this red capacitor.
Maybe it is also a good idea to source the uCgardener with more than only 4.0V,
since the linear regulator can't work if their are some glitches / drops from
the powersupply and the capacitor 3300uF can't help either in this case.
