Evo boot loops any ideas?
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.

When the phone does a boot loop can you get out of it or do you have to pull the battery?
My previous EVO would get into a boot loop when it was using a heavy data application (i.e. TeleNav, Pandora. . .) over 3G.
IMO some component would get hot and was under-spec so it would fail and cause the boot loop. This was on a completely stock phone and happened even after Sprint tried re-flashing the stock ROM.
I think if you search on "Boot Loop" in the EVO forums, you will find a fair number of threads on the issue.

If its boot looping on the stock rom and cm7, then it seems to be a hardware issue. Unroot and return it.
But, how did you restore data to cm7?Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"
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?

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
