I have a rooted Droid 2 (running software 2.2). I rooted the phone using Z4root. I have also installed Droid2 Bootstrapper, and create Backup of the phone. I am on Pageplus's prepaid plan and that works fine for me. Phone was working fine till this morning and now I have a weird problem. I have googled for the solution, but no luck. So, here I come:
This morning, I installed Gasbuddy app (d/led from android market) and also updates to some of the apps. After this, I connected the phone to my PC to charge it, and successfully ejected it later. I did not see the home screen, so I rebooted the phone. When I rebooted, the phone seemed to start successfully with white M icon and droid eye. After it boots, I see the screen showing Verizon Wireless, Date, lock thing, and notification bar, showing missed calls and text notification, clock, and battery icon (meaning that display is fine). I can reply to a text message that I receive, and can answer the phone call. However, if I have to send a text message or make a phone call, I only see the black screen, and do not see any home screen icons. Pressing home screen doesn't do anything, but if I press it a number of times, then voice search thing starts up. When I was in the text screen, pressing the settings button brought up the settings for text program. This tells me that the bottom part of the screen is working fine too.
I am stuck now. Please help a newbie get some more life out of his droid.
