I could use some advice on any options I have for trying to salvage this Rezound. Here is what I know:
-Was completely stock and actively used phone
-Charging port began misbehaving. I believe it may be loose/damaged. It will only charge reliably on one particular USB cable (an Amazon Basics, but only one of my dozen or so of those)
-Started randomly rebooting
-Did a factory reset, seemed to help for a while, then it started rebooting again
-It started getting stuck in a bootloop. HTC screen up ~2s -> black ~0.2s -> HTC screen up ~28s -> black ~5s -> repeat. Does this for a variable amount of time, sometimes minutes, sometimes hours before it will actually boot all the way into the OS
-If it does boot, it usually does not last long before it reboots and will typically get stuck again
-I can into bootloader with no issues
-Because I can get into bootloader, I went ahead and unlocked and flashed TWRP 184.108.40.206
-I can get into TWRP and use all of it's functions reliably
-I decided to try wiping data and cache then system several times, flashing a custom ROM (Global_OTA_RED_DESENSED-v1.0) in TWRP and then flashed boot.img with fastboot, but the new ROM has the same issue. In fact I've yet to boot all the way into the ROM
-Does the same thing with the SD card and SIM card removed
Based on the fact that it is rock solid in the bootloader and in recovery, I thought that it was possibly corruption on system or boot, which is why I tried to install a custom ROM. Now I'm leaning towards bad memory, either where system or boot reside, possibly data or even RAM, perhaps caused by electrical damage from the charge port issues. I just don't understand why I've not seen any sort of read/write errors while doing anything with fastboot or recovery.
At this point I don't know what to do beyond throwing it out. If anyone has any fresh ideas for salvaging this thing, I'd appreciate it.
If not, any ideas for replacing are also appreciated. A new phone isn't really in the budget at the moment, particularly because I desperately want to get away from Verizon (most likely will lose unlimited data if we I start swapping and don't really have $600-$700 to throw around at the moment. I have 4 lines to move and the Rezound line is on contract, so I'm sort of feeling the rock one side and a hard place on the other.
Thanks in advance, folks!
