When I try and understand this Kernel Panic Report, But I don't know what LR is. What is LR? How can I tell if this is a hardware problem or software?

*** Panic Report ***

LR is a Link Register.

A link register is a special-purpose register which holds the address to return to when a function call completes.

More info on Wikipedia.

Crash occured on Thread 3 and it's not related to the LR. It's hard to tell what happened since the report is not symbolicated.
