I want to keep my original droid until August, recently I have had a worsening problem where the touchscreen will not respond.
I don't think it is completely a hardware problem because occasionally I will reboot the phone and it will work.
The phone was rooted.
I had a series of ROM installed (CM7, Bugless Beast, SnkBitten, Sourcery 2.2.2) twice I have wiped everything and re installed 2.2.2. The same problem persists. Froyo or Gingerbread or stock ...
Currently, I unrooted it with RSD lite - and the problem is still happening - so much so that the phone is useless.
Once every 5-6 reboots I get it to work and then when I turn the display off and go back to the lockscreen five minutes later, the touchscreeen is completely frozen.
The phone is working, I still get notifications of emails, if I pull out the keyboard, the display will not turn off ... if I don't turn off the display and keep the phone active it will be fine it is just when I let it go inactive and the display shuts off - it will lock up again.
Anyone have any sense of what is going on? Any details I can provide that will give you more of a diagnostic clue?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
