Messing with PIT files without full knowledge of what you are doing is one of the surest ways to bring the phone. Don't do it.

Flashing your firmware (as describe in the Return to Stock section of the All things ATT guide) and doing a factory data reset takes you to stock. Given your description I think you have a hardware problem. I also had sound issues that got worse the longer the phone was up. Rebooting didn't "fix it" but made it less extreme (I got weird distortion / crackling). Factory service was required.
