    My droid is spazzing out

    Has anybody elses Droid been acting crazy since yesterday? Since yesterday afternoon my browser opens by itself and will scroll up and down uncontrollably, the app drawer opens on it's own, it cycles through apps, opens them randomly. Sometimes you cant move from screen to screen on the home page. Anybody else???

    I assume you've pulled the battery, right?

    A factory reset is your next step.

    dont get it. I'd like to think they are preparing a 2.2 update, but I'm sure that's not it. :P

    I've seen a couple different instances where this was caused by a dire need to clean the screen off, combined with a screen protector that is evidently being thought of (by the Droid) as one big finger confusing the heck out of the touchscreen. Not saying this is the case here, but sounds similar.

    Also heard of weird stuff like this with non-oem chargers...

    I've even seen (firsthand) weird jerkiness when plugged in with certain USB cords, though not to this extreme.

    Mine started doing this too, but it started a month or two ago at least. When I reboot or even take the battery out and reboot, it would usually be ok for a very short while when it would come back up, but then start freaking out again. It would always go back to normal if I would leave it alone for say 10 or 15 minutes.

    One thing I'm currently trying (I only did this 3 or 4 days ago) is I had had the weatherbug big widget on my home, and over the weekend I removed it (did not uninstall weatherbug though). It has not happened since I removed it, but, since it's only been a few days, that's not conclusive yet. It seemed like it would happen maybe once a day or every 2 or 3 days. The first time it does it now though will prove weatherbug isn't the cause.

    Anyone else experiencing this and using the weatherbug 1x2 widget?


    Also: I only see this whlie the phone is unplugged, but I always unplug it to use it. I only use the charger that came with it.

    Update: The issue occurred again with the Weatherbug widget gone, so it would seem that's not the cause.

    I had problems with this today as well. The screen would unlock and open random apps. twice it put some random folders on the homescreen. I was running the most recent Cyanogen, went back to DarkEdge, but still had this problem I thinking about unrooting and going back to stock since DarkEdge randomly turns the cell signal off so I'm afraid of missing calls. I have tried a battery pull, but I've had it on charge since I got home so the screen is on anyways.
    May the light of the Keywork guide you.
