Fixed Reboot, Freeze problem on my X10
I tried everything to fix the heat, freeze, reboot issue with this phone after I bought it used. Upgrade, firmware, downgraded, custom rom..etc..nothing helped. I bought a cheapy phone recently for a back up because the Xperia X10a I bought second hand was that unreliable.
I took apart the phone down to the main board, removed the main board and baked it in my home convection oven. Nothing new, it's the snapdragon processor, it's also used in some dud HTC phones and others. The processor's soldering isn't that great in some and when it gets too hot it just simply freezes and restarts.
Baking it in the oven helped for now. It's functioning fully without issue and while it still warms up a bit, it keeps working. I don't know how long this will last as some hack reflows like this one only last a month or two, sometimes less. Others last a lot longer. Here's hoping. I did upload some vids to youtube for anyone interested. Go to youtube and search for MrSpywhite, or send me a message and I'll give you the links.
It's the only thing that worked for me to get this thing to stop crashing. I bought a new battery thinking that might help, it didn't but it's handy having a second battery.
