    Is it possible to do anything to stop this occuring, apart from sending it off to HTC?

    The reason I'm asking is because I am due an upgrade soon and can't be bothered with all the messing about - I would also need to unroot and flash a stock ROM.

    However, having a phone that I can't use for very long before it conks out is extremely annoying.

    I've read on here that tightening the screws around the battery can solve or reduce the problem, but I've no idea if that's true or not.

    What is your phone doing when it reboots? It's often kernel related on rooted devices

    The screen will go black, then it will vibrate four times and stay on a screen with a pink dot. Think the pink dot symbol is something to do with the fact I'm on T-Mobile.

    I will then need to pull the battery in order to reboot. If I don't leave the phone a while before rebooting t will repeat the process.

    Apologies for misunderstanding. :eek:

    I don't have to be doing anything in particular. However, it's usually when I'm browsing the internet, playing a game, using a forum app etc.

    It does sometimes feel hot, yes. I'm guessing it's the motherboard problem that many others are suffering from?
