Cloud Search Are you on the old bootloader and having issues with crashing?

I have managed to stay on the old bootloader, and have tried about 4 ROMs now with full wipes (data + system) before flashing, and have freezing and crashing issues with all of them. I have tried:
- Omega (x2)
- Foxhound
- Echoe
- Goldeneye

They all work fine for the most part, but on average once a day either the phone will reboot on me, or things will start to get crashy (whether it's the framework (eg I start having trouble pulling down the notification bar), or an app will freeze). If I reboot things work well again for a while, but within the next 24-48 hours something will go wrong again.

Having tried so many ROMs, all with full wipes I'm starting to wonder if it's because I'm still on the old bootloader.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I never had it with the 4.2.2 ROMs.

Are you a ROM chef? Want to make sure your APKs have the correct compression settings, the internal PNGs are optimised, and the APKs are zip aligned? Check out my script:

Try to Update your recovery mate. Ex. Philz or twrp. Old bootloader rocks so keep it that way. Have a nice day.

thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't help. I was on a 2 month old version of PhilZ, i upgraded to the latest, and then a few hours later the screen wouldn't turn on, had to force a reboot by holding down the power button.
