    Default iPhone keeps resetting - need to use iTunes everytime

    My girlfriend is having problems with her iPhone.

    The iPhone is unlocked and jailbroken. I used ZiPhone to do all of this. it was originally 1.1.2 (i think) and then i updated it to 1.1.3, and that is the current firmware.

    The first is that the screen flickers a lot of the time when in use. When it flickers the screen goes white with multicoloured lines going across vertically and horizontally. It will stay there until i push the screen randomly again. Ive found a way to make it stop flickering momentarily but it just keeps coming back. The phone is still useable as when it is not flickering everything works fine. The screen hasnt leaked or cracked or anything like that and is perfectly normal when not in flickering mode. To me it seems like something is loose inside or something ike that.

    Secondly, and i dont know if this is related to the first problem, the phone resets itself. i dont know if im using the correct terminology so i will describe what happens.

    one one occasion, the phone went into flicker mode so she tried to stop it flickering by randomlly pushing parts of the screen, and then the screen went black, then a couple seconds later the apple logo came up, followed by the itunes logo with the plug underneath it.

    on another occasion she woke up to find the itunes logo with the plug.

    Everytime this happens the only way to get the phone working again is to use itunes to restore it, and then ZiPhone to unlock and jailbreak it.

    Can anybody help me with the problems?

    The phone is from the US and we are living in the UK. Also the phone was custom coloured by colorwarepc so i think that the apple warranty was voided when they opened it to do the colour job. She got the phone lat year around jan/feb and the problems started in may.

    Any advice is welcome

    i just installed 1.1.4 to see if this would solve the problem. the screen is still flickering, and it hasnt reset so far, but it resets randomly o it could be days to weeks.

    It looks like a hardaware problem to me.
