    Default HELP I can't boot my phone and it keeps crashing when trying to recover it.

    I solved most of the problems told in the title.
    Edited:

    My phone is rooted and it runs Liquid Smooth on 4.3

    Problem 1: Random restarting

    Started around 3 days ago when charging it would go off when I was using the phone. This started to happen frequently now for example, opening an app, playing music and scrolling or randomly at most. Another time it happens is in recovery mode when trying to flash recovery or a rom.

    Problem 2: Android OS drainage

    Not too sure about this but takes up most of the percentage of the battery and sometimes Media takes up most of the percentage

    I think you now have your very own phone shaped brick. If it crashed in between flashing then its done and nothing can be done to save it. Its like if you were a surgeon and performing a very delicate brain operation and someone came in to the operating room right in the middle of the surgery and bashed in the patient brain with a hammer. That patient would be gone and dead with no hope of surviving.

    After four months of trouble-free use on an unrelated ROM my phone also started rebooting randomly. After eliminating most of the other possibilities I determined that something was borked with the ROM or kernel and just nuked the whole phone and started over (with a different kernel).

    You may want to try the same thing.

    Nuke the phone like unroot or using apps like "nuke my device"? Completely losing everything doesn't sound too nice atm. I can do everything on my phone right now but it stills frequently restarts especially in CWM recovery mode. One thing I noticed is if you wait a like 10-20 seconds in recovery mode and decide to move it reboots and when you use aroma manager in recovery mode and try to delete something it reboots again. Would underclocking do anything to it? It seems to happen trying to flash large files such as a gb file but doesn't happen for files that are 7 mb such as a kernel. Oh and it just happened right now when I was looking at CPU spy and tried to scroll down the notification bar.

    Nuke the phone as in:
    - wipe /system, /data, /cache, Dalvik cache
    - reload ROM, kernel, etc
    - reactivate phone, etc

    Fun or not, that's what worked for me. I'm guessing it was a problem with the kernel settings, but it had been months since I messed with any of that, so I went back to square one.

    Oddly, my phone stopped randomly rebooting for a few minutes and I quickly switched to cyagonmod and after a few hour it started auto crashing again and the only app I have installed were titanium backup and greenify. I also noticed that when I connect the Usb charger to the laptop, the laptop was not recognising the phone and it once said that the device may not be working properly. Soo could it be a hardware problem?

    I'm maybe try nuking later.
