    Default 3G crashes like crazy after battery swap, restore doesn't help

    Quick summary: I have an iPhone 3G that's out of warranty. Battery wasn't lasting very long, so I installed a replacement off eBay.

    Ever since doing so, it crashes hard and often. I've since put the original battery back in, and saw no improvement. Multiple restores have been ineffective; even in it's virgin state, right after restore, it will crash with anything that uses a lot of power. I've even tried buying another battery and installing it, and still haven't seen any improvement.

    I have crash logs and kernel panic logs, but the only trend I can see is that the crashes occur when I do something that requires more power, such as loading an app, turning on bluetooth and/or wifi, playing a sound, etc... All of the hardware works, in between crashes.

    Any ideas how to troubleshoot the issue, short of swapping the mainboard into another 3G?

    Default Mainboard swap results

    So I swapped the motherboard into another phone today, and it still crashed like crazy, even with a virgin restore to unjailbroken, official Apple firmware.

    It looks like there must be some voltage regulation on the mainboard that isn't working properly, but unless someone has some hints for me of how to further troubleshoot, I guess I'll just have to sell it on eBay for parts/repair...

    Any suggestions are welcome!
