So I wake up and first thing I do is pull out the charger. Then, I try to unlock the screen. As soon as I place my finger on top of one of the dots, the phone goes haywire!
It starts to automatically and frantically pressing all the left screen dots on its own, very fast. WTF? Before I know it, the screen is locked for 30 seconds. So in the mean time I wipe the screen off very well to make sure there are no dust particles or what not that could be causing this. As soon as the 30 seconds passes, bam, it does the same thing again!
So I turn off the phone several times and even do a battery pull. Same issue repeats several times, until now. It stopped pressing the left side dots on its own, but I still cannot unlock the screen because it doesn't register any of the three left side dots, one of which is part of my unlock pattern! GRRRRR! In other words, I slide my finger from dot to dot and everything is fine until I have to point to a dot on the left side. Nothing happens. I can see the drag line pointing to the dot, but it never selects it.
At first I thought what any logical person would think - the left side of the screen is dead or something. Well, that's NOT the case. When I go to "emergency dial" menu, I can press any button on the left side of the screen without a problem (where the dots would be).
I can't access the damn phone since this morning. This sucks. I have no idea how to solve this. Seems to be some sort of software issue.
I'm running OEM firmware 2.1 with stock ROM. But I am rooted and I am running Chevy's Kernel.
