    HTC Desire Overheating Problems

    I have had my HTC Desire for nearly a year now, and to what seems after the last update, every time I use something demanding, especially the 3G, it overheats and resets its self.
    It would then get stuck in a violent loop of resetting its self on boot.

    Has anyone had this problem?
    I have seen multiple videos on you tube with the same problem but unsure if its a HTC fault or I would have to pay excess to have it repaired.
    Cheers.

    Mine has been freezing lately, in the software sense, and it has been getting quite hot at times. I'm still trying to work out why. It doesn't reset though.

    I'm on Android 2.3.3 and Cyanogenmod 7

    contact htc or your phone provider and then if they wont help root the phone install a custom rom and downclock it to see if that helps

    Yeah, stick setcpu on it - and set it to downclock when the screens off or when the temp gets too high.

    I'm running CM7 on my desire and never had this problem

    I have SetCPU but not really done much with it. I'll have a go at that.

    set cpu wont do anything unless you have a kernel that allows overclocking

    Aye, but CM7 includes a multistep kernel as default
