Tried moving the rom from the RUU_HTC Desire Android 2.3 Upgrade (Gingerbread) ROM in to the SD card while renaming it to PB99IMG and running it from the bootloader. When it had completed it said:
Main Version is older (i think)
Update failed!
Restart?

But it does complete with no error if i connect the phone to my computer and run the .exe?

Sigh...

This got me thinking and some time on google, looks like this is a common problem.
But, i never had this problem before my screen got damaged, and i replaced it. And the phone never feels warm when it restarts, it is actually cold.
So, maybe there is a faulty sensor in the phone causing it to think that it is overheating. Anyone know anything about this? If i can find the sensor, maybe i could just.. Remove it?

Is 2.2 the original android version on this phone? Maybe the 2.3.3 causes the overheat, so i was thinking on downgrading to 2.2
Where can i find the original 2.2 .exe?

Will the RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.29.405.5_Radio_32.49.00. 32U_5.11.05.27_release_159811_signed.exe work with my 0.93.0001 HBOOT?

2.3.3 doesn't 'cause' it to overheat...

You can try to flash any compatible RUU you want, it is highly unlikely you'll properly fix a radio brick which is a hardware issue

Radio Brick? How can it have a radio brick when the phone is working? But only in the freezer tho.
I wondered because i never had this problem on the phone before i changed the screen.

There's not much more evidence you need to show that unfortunately you have a hardware issue...
