    Droid is unstable, Back and Home buttons don't work.

    A few weeks ago I decommissioned my rooted droid when I swictched to a Nexus. I removed all my data, installed CM 6 and put it in a drawer. Now I'm attempting to reactivate it but it's unstable. I reformatted the SD and System partitions and it's running a bit better, but the Home and Back buttons no longer work. I tried CM 6, CM 7, and the original backup. Any ideas on how I can get this phone working again? Thanks.

    Thanks! I tried that, same result. Perhaps there is a problem with the hardware, although it was functioning perfectly 2 months ago.

    Did you install the gapps package when you installed cyanogenmod?

    Yes, I installed Cyanogen w/ gapps. I think it's a hardware problem. The touch screen seems to have problems on a small vertical section of the right side of the display.
