A few days ago my phone started lagging at times. Mainly whilst running some sort of game. After a while it would try to reboot but most of the times it would not get into system. If I left it alone for a while and remove and put back the battery it would be back to normal. However, yesterday it crashed again and ever since I can't get into my system. It shows the HTC white homescreen. Then after a while(slow) it shows the cyanogen skateboarding android. Although very shocky and slow. And when finally he asks me to put in my simcode he reboots stucking in this infinite loop. I've tried reflashing both with the cyanogen mod and oxygen. I've tried a different SD card. I'm beginning to think my phone is really broken. My hope is that it's something deeper then the rom but still only a software bug and not my hardware. The only thing I can still do, is get into recovery. Does anybody have any idea's or options which I can try? Thanks in advance.

Hmm, as you can get into recovery, I wouldn't panic too much.. I'll break it down into a step-by-step what I'd do. Each number represents if the preceding instruction point does not work. However! First an foremost do full backups as you will lose everything if you don't. As you can only enter Recovery, Nandroid is your only option.
Full wipe and apply Nandroid restore. Still misbehaving?
Full wipe, no Nandroid. You're starting from fresh here. No luck?
Full wipe and reflash your ROM. And still being a bad boy?
Full wipe and try a different ROM? A definite last resort IMO. If still no luck after 1-3 and you don't want to flash another ROM, just post back and I'll dig a little deeper. I have a feeling if 1
lets you down, 2
Let me know how it goes either way.
