OK. I'm assuming you have an AT&T Aria. If not let me know.
Here's what I'd suggest you do. I'm basically trying the most extreme steps to correct the issue so we can verify if the issue is something that can be corrected or not.
1) Reformat your SD card(s) with SD Formatter 3.1
. This tool sometimes fixes hard to detect problems that aren't corrected when formatting with other methods. (Default settings are fine.)
2) Run the AT&T 2.2.2 RUU
to revert your phone to almost 100% stock. I say almost because the RUU will NOT change your HBOOT, which means even after doing this process, you will still have S-OFF.
3) Try using the phone with the stock unmodified ROM to see if you experience the random reboots you described. If you do, the rest of the steps are not necessary and it's probably a hardware issue.
4) Install CWM by putting your phone into FASTBOOT mode, then using the Android Flasher
utility to install the latest version of Clockworkmod. Use this version: http://www.mediafire.com/?lg6b63aqpi1cvbg
). If you know how to do this from command line with the fastboot command line tool, that is fine too.
5) Boot into CWM. Do factory reset/wipe data and format system partition. Then install the ROM of your choice. I'd suggest something like a recent version of CM7
since it is very stable. If using CM7, install 20110828 gapps
immediately after flashing CM7. Reboot and see how it goes.
Even if you already downloaded any of the above files, delete them and download them again this time around (or check the md5 sums if you know how). It's possible the files were corrupted when you downloaded them before and that is why you keep having problems.
Also, as an aside: Are you using third-party batteries with your devices?
