    ok i give up with this damn phone. over the past 3 months my phone reboots every day or every other. when it reboots it just sits on the load screen til i pull the battery and reboot it again. no matter what rom and kernal i run its the same thing. i have no clue what is causing this and its on my last nerve. my current set is the 1.77 radios with the mikg 2.1+3.0 v3.0 with the chopsuey v.9.2.6 universal kernal. any help would be appreciated and thank you in advance

    That is your PRI value, I think. I can't remember seeing a 1.77 radio version.

    Have you tried to download and install the latest radio combo?

    It might help. You can get the combo here:
    [ Radios ][ 9-5 ] All EVO Radio, WiMAX, PRI, NV & HBoot versions - xda-developers

    If that doesn't help, try a complete wipe of everything and flash the stock rooted rom with the stock kernel found here:
    [ROM][STOCK][12/24/11] 4.54.651.1 (updated) - xda-developers

    If that doesn't help you may need to unroot and take it in. Hardware failures do cause random reboots sometimes. :(

    No problem, thats why we're here. :)

    Let us know if the radios stop the reboots, and sometimes the rom / kernel combo do weird things. Thats why I suggested the stock rom and kernel, to rule out kernel / rom issues and see if it's hardware. Lets hope it's not hardware. :eek:

    Also, I almost forgot, don't remove the battery while flashing the radio combo!! This WILL brick your phone!! :eek:

    it could also be a hardware issue i had this about 5 months ago wher my phone would randomly reboot itself like that. i was on cm7 at the time it all started. i noticed that it usually starts with when i use navigation. then it started when i would play pandora or games like angry bird. i noticed also that my phone would get pretty hot. i tried all sorts of combo's with roms and kernels. so out of frustration, i unrooted my phone and see if that helped. and of course it did not. phone still rebooted itself. so i took the trip to my sprint store and i told them my story (leaving out that it was rooted at one point) and they just tried a factory reset. of course that did not work because i showed them by running navigation, pandora, and angry bird at the same time. and it rebooted by itself. and that is how i got a refurbished evo.

    not sure if this is the same issue with you or not.

    hey ocn long time no see bud. hope all is well. i noticed how you had nav and birds going i on the other hand can be in the middle of a text message or email and then boom either reboot or a freeze then reboot. gonna try out these tips from granite first. test the radios then the stock set up and at this point i dont even care if its hardware i just want to figure this out before i break this thing lol
