THIS IS NOT A THREAD TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO FLASH TO CRICKET.
THIS THREAD IS FOR RECOMMENDATIONS ON FIXING THE ISSUE AT HAND. I am going to post my exact instructions on my flashing technique as I have logged over 100 hours of flashing the Droid I and the Droid X to Cricket.
NOW TO THE ISSUE:
Alright, I've got a Droid 1 that I flashed to Cricket. Service worked just fine for about 2 days, then the screen started to do some funny stuff... the phone was opening and closing apps all on its own, the volume indicator would randomly raise and lower itself, the finally screen just went black. I had ALL functions working on the phone, talk, text, pictures, web, and Market.
I rooted the phone with superoneclick, went off without a hitch, no problems at all. I then used CDMA workshop 2.7 to flash the PRL and the NV Items (pulled from whiterabbit.org.android) into the phone, and did a reset. When phone rebooted, I used QPST to finish writing in the data settings, wrote those to the phone, no problem. I then edited the APN settings for picture messaging successfully. Did a 30 minute battery pull, booted phone back up and voila... another successful Cricket Droid I.
With all this said, I have flashed 10 to 15 of these phones to cricket, all using the exact same process, and this is the first one I've ever gotten this issue with.
Now when I say this phone has a black screen, I mean no matter what I do the screen STAYS black. During startup, if I try to boot into recovery, if I try to boot into bootloader, it doesn't matter, the screen STAYS black. Still get sounds, still get haptic feedback, and I can even turn the phone off by guessing where the the Off option is when I hold the power button after it turns on.
All I'm trying to do is get the stock sbf flashed back to the phone, and I'm trying to do that through RSDLite since I can't see anything on the phone screen. When I reboot the phone holding up on the d-pad, I can't tell whether it actually does go into bootloader, so far RSDLite isn't seeing the phone.
I'm looking for any recommendation on this. I'm continuing to work on it, but so far I'm stumped as to how I can get this thing unrooted and back to stock to see if I'll get the screen back.
Yes I've done multiple battery pulls, at varied intervals, and no still don't get the Motorola Logo when I take the battery and SD card out and try turning the phone on with just the charger.
Like I said, I'm stumped. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance for taking the time to look at this.
