    droid screen is going crazy

    My droid screen is activating applications on its own. Pop up screen at the bottom pops up and down repeatedly. I pull the green bar over to open the application screen and several icons start blinking on their own.
    Do i have some virus or what...mokokanee

    Did the screen get wet, was the phone dropped recently?

    Is the phone plugged into a "cheapo" charger? Non-stock chargers have been known to make the phone's screen act all possessed with a mind of its own. Unplugging from such a charger makes such activity stop.

    If it continues I'd call up Verizon.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I'm running CyanogenMod 5.0.7.1 and use the charger that came with the phone. I treat the phone like a baby.

    I have on rare occasion seen the phone just go ape sh*t. Literally as if someone else were using it and randomly clicking icons and firing off menus. The only solution is a battery pull.

    90% sure it isn't a virus.

    If it is happening constantly I'd back up your current rom and settings and try restoring one of your backups. You also could try installing a different rom. Meanwhile, having had posted the rom you are on will help as we'll see if others experience the same thing.

    Now knowing you're rooted I take back the advice of calling Verizon for the next step
