Default Everytime I reboot I have to reinstall OS

When I reboot the phone it hangs on the splash screen. So then I go into twrp and do a few things but still cant get back. I end up doing a full wipe and install my backup. Backup installs but upon reboot, it bootloops between the splash screen and trying to get to recovery. I see the blue twrp page for a sec and then back to splash screen and so on and on. Then I cant access twrp at all. I can only get into bootloader.

This happens no matter what ROM I use. So then I have to use fastboot to install twrp. Then use otg in twrp to install a new ROM. The new ROM installs fine and everything functions normal. But if I were to reboot and especially when the phone is left in fastboot mode, the whole cycle starts again.

My phone was fine a few days ago. It was stock running kitkat and not rooted never did anything to it. Then the phone turned off and got stuck at the splash screen. I could not do anything to recover the phone. I ended up being able to root so I did and here I am

Does this seem to be a hardware problem? That's the only thing I can think of. Everything gets wiped on the phone and loaded from a jump drive.

Post a fastboot getvar all. Maybe your backup is at fault also post a screen shot of your bootloader

Could very well be (very likely be a hardware problem), can you post a "fastboot getvar all" (excluding IMEI and s/n), maybe there's an RUU for you that could fix it if it's software related.
