Default [Q] Unexplainable Random Reboots [all OSes]

Now before we all jump to conclusions, let me explain what I HAVE tried and what caused it.

1) I HAVE tried various roms, including stock.

2) I HAVE tried various kernels.. including stock kernel at 600 mhz..

3) There are no reboots when in I'm in recovery.. but in the OS, it reboots within 3 minutes. ANY OS..

4) I tried wiping EVERYTHING.

5) Once I tried fixing this when I went from CWM to TWRP, for some reason, that fixed everything, but 5 days later, now on Nit-picked sense rom, the problem returned.

6) I tried returning to stock 600mhz kernel but it still reboots.

7) yes, I've factory reset it several times now

Here are my conclusions..

1) it is NOT because of frequency
2) it is NOT individual rom at fault

help would be appreciated

Default Update

The problem solved itself after I reflashed recovery and installed a rom.. but I see a familiar circle here.. a few days later, it'll start behaving like that again

Check if the battery is okay.... It could be because of a lose connection or something... Otherwise there shouldn't really be any reason for your phone to reboot like that.

thanks for your reply.. but no, I dont think thats the case, I've kept the phone on in recovery for many hours when that happened, nothing.. no problem while flashing either..

once I'm in my new custom OS, sometime while choosing if I'd have data synced manually, it restarts... any rom..

but, when I reflash recovery, it seems ok... last time I did that was when I posted my previous reply, it betrayed me again today.. was fine for nearly a week...

Another thing could be that your RAM is used up and your phone freezes... It's happened to me. So try using zRAM or RAM manager pro or something and see if it helps.

Do you have mobile data turned on? I had the same problem on my desire c it rebooted when data was on. Try to disable data as soon as it turns on! It's unexplainable it randomly went away.
