So an friend gave me their old Evo and it boot loops from the stock rom. I rooted the device and installed CM7. The device will now reboot and boot loop but randomly. I also tried the EVO Kings rom with the same result. I wiped all the three things need and even flashed the radio. Has anybody else ran into this or just me? Thanks for any help.
I look at a few of the other threads and tried a few of those options... that where I got the idea to flash the radio. It comes up at times and then randomly reboots. I can't return it because it was used. I have been able to flash the rom then gapps then the radio and so far its still up. Its crazy! I have also taken the sd card out and formatted it several times and i wonder if that was the problem? Is this clear as mudd?
I install Vaelpack and its fairly stable. One strange thing is that if it gets hot it starts the boot loop thing again. I left it in my car and noticed this. After it cooled it worked fine. Is there an internal thermostat in these devices?
This could be way out in left field, but is Set CPU installed? If so, open it and check on the main tab to see if "set on boot" is checked. If the profiles aren't set correctly it can cause your phone to boot, and if that option is selected it can put your phone in a boot loop. Just a thought and hope it helps
No what does that do? BTW it was doing this on the stock rom.
Cpu tuner does the same thing as set cpu. It just sounds to me based on a lot of stuff I've read that it is some kind of overclocking issue, especially since you are reporting that your phone is getting hot. Another thing that occurs to me is your rom and ketnal may not be compatible. For example, it is my understanding that Sprint Lovers, which I have, is baded on the stock kernal and is not made for ovrr clocking. Just throwing some things out there
