Default Reboots every 20 minutes

Ive hit the wall as far as my experience fixing my phone goes, and I would REALLY appreciate any help

A few days ago I updated my rom (icecoldsandwich, if it makes a difference). I went from a stable version to a test version. After the update I began having random reboots, sometimes as often as every 20 minutes. These happen regardless of what I'm doing, sometimes even if I'm not touching the phone.

I figured these were due to the rom, so I went back to the stable version and still had the same problem. I then tried a few different builds (redemption, aospX, cm7). Still have the problem

I've tried redownloading the roms, checking the checksums, formatting my sd card, reflashing cwm. Pretty much everything I can think of and nothing has helped.

Could be the battery. This is a symptom of the battery going bad, especially if you still have the stock battery. Get your hands on another battery and see if that fixes the problem.
If at first you don't succeed...SEARCH!

HTC Inspire 4G - retired
HTC One X+ - awesome

I have the stock battery, but the phone itself is only 3 months. Who knows how "old" it is, but it hasn't been heavily used yet

Edit: also, it has rebooted while plugged in to an ac charger. From what I've read of battery issues, they reboot when the battery goes, but NOT while plugged in

How about flashing the stock RUU and then reflash your stable version?

I717RUXMD1 Rogers Deodexed Stock JB ROM

Samsung I497 10.1 Tab2
I497UCBMF2 stock JB

To be honest with you, I'm not even 100% sure what RUU is, much
less what it entails

RUU is the stock ROM Update Utility. To you it is the stock ROM that you can flash on your phone from your PC.

Try flashing like cordroid or another gingerbread sense Rom and see if you experience the same.

Hi

After learning to load diferents ROM, I habe laerned the following:

try a factory reset after you loaded the ROM.

But I will recommed to make a complete Clear Dalvik Cache and load the rom
After you loaded the ROM, perform a full reset factory

If you still having the issue, discard that rom, won´t work in your HTC

You should be factory/cache/dalvik clearing BEFORE you load the rom.
Let me google that for you -The best way to help someone and also tell them they are lazy at the same time.

Put in any rom and try something out. Power off the cell and take out the battery. See what happens. I had a strange battery behaviour a week ago which I'll be posting in the Q&A at some point.
