Within a day the screen exhibited the same behavior. Guess ATK wasn't responsible (or perhaps it wasn't solely responsible).
I had this problem a long time ago with one of the ROMs I was running, I did the usual clearing the cache and data thing multiple times and installed another ROM and never had the problem again.
I think, as someone mentioned previously, it was related to a kernel my phone wasn't liking.
Mine started doing this same thing yesterday. I downloaded an app called swipepad which was supposed to be pretty cool. The screen started to freak out just after I downloaded it. I deleted the app from my phone but it still freaks out. My menu button no longer works at all and the left side of my screen wont recognize any touches. my keyboard is all screwy too. I tryed flashing an old rom that i have saved but that did not fix anything. Will try flashing a new kernal to see if that helps.
Edit: Nope new kernal did nothing.
After I could not find any solution to this issue I reflashed my Droid back to stock and took it to the Verizon store. They looked at it and gave me a brand new (reconditioned) Droid as a replacement. They advised that it was a hardware issue that they could not fix there. Anyway, new phone, already rooted and running Sourcery Rom again.
Has this problem been resolved for anybody.. I have found that it is a common problem, but, everybody seems to only get it fixed by returning there phone back to the provider...
I have an LGL75C Straighttalk from Walmart...
Here are my symptoms...
Random apps are started as if they are being pressed, but they are not being pressed by me.. It just seems to go crazy...
It used to only happen when my phone was on the charger, with the screen off.. I would notice that apps were starting up while it was charging.. At first, it wasn't an issue cause it only happened when it was on the charger.
I almost cant change the settings anymore.. really freaks out then..
I notice that it likes to start the app that is on the bottom left corner of my screen..
There are no scratches there.. and I don't use a screen protector.. I looked for dirt under my screen, doesn't seem to be any..
I did notice that it happens terribly when my battery is at about 15%.. (off the charger)...
was thinking that it was maybe heat, but, I let it cool off and then turn it back on.. and it happens for a while, then gets better...
I keep my screen as dim as possible.. I only charge it now when it is turned off.. (annoying)...
This is a problem that got progressively worse.. I almost cant use the phone at times.. it calls people.. sends random messages, etc.. Makes me want to smash it against the wall..
My phone is not rooted and I have never put any roms on it..
I have set it back to the factory settings, and it still seems to do it..
It happened right away after the factory reset, too.. I almost couldn't get my google account onto the phone cause I was fighting the buttons to get it there..
I'm pretty sure that I am using the charger that came with the phone.. problem is, that I have so many chargers from different phones, that I'm not sure is the right one.. lol.. The one I am using fits, and says LG on it.. shouldn't really matter though cause I sometimes charge from USB, when hooked to the PC..
I have installed AVG to scan it for Virus, but, says there are none..
Any help would be greatly appreciated..
