phone freezes and goes into a bootloop :(

hi . im having this problem with my phone most of the time ( not always )

mainly happens when my battery dies and when i charge it and turn it back on...

when i turn it on it comes up as usual... sd card loads... and everything turns on then if i dont unlock the phone it goes in to a bootloop

and if i do unlock it i can use it for 2 mins until it freezes and it goes into a bootloop again

but then sometimes i am able to use the phone after unlocked without it going into a bootloop

i just wanna know why this happens Slightly frowning Face because it is quite annoying now ..

and how do i fix it

im am running ics and rooted

plus i think it happens once the SD card loads ... i think idk .. any help ??

u can also try to repair with pcc or in the worst case you can reinstall the software using flashtool
