    Touch android to begin screen.

    Sold my Droid 1 to a guy last week and he just received it in the mail today. It was rooted and running a custom ROM. I sent him the phone and today he tells me when the phone boots it says "touch android" but when he tries and touch it nothing happens. Literally the only thing that has changed is that the phone no longer has an SD card. Would that have really screwed it up? The MicroSd that came with the phone failed a while back and I had to use a smaller one which I kept after selling the phone hence it not having one.

    I am worried as he is getting super pissed and is not believing me at all that the phone worked prior to shipping even though he saw pictures of me running it just before sending it.

    Really need help on this.

    EDIT: The only thing I can think of for the guy to do is a Factory Reset/ Wipe

    The sdcard had the rom and the recovery image. It may be best to send him to us. the middle man routine may cause more confusion. But he will probably have to boot into recovery, install a rom, wipe data and cache. Then once he boot back up he will need to install either dmupdater12 (for sprecovery) or rm (for clockwork recovery).

    Will do. Separate from him buying an SD is there anything he can do?

    Will a wipe/factory reset get him going?

    There are vital start up files stored on an SD card, I am not even sure it is possible to succesfully run an Android Device without a card in place, after you removed the card did you test it and see if the device still worked properly ?

    No it was a rush job because the SD card failed that was the reason I kept it. I had a 2gb in there but that was it when I had it and I took it out before shipping. Never thought it had anything major on it. I figured all important data was on the phone.


    If he buys a random SD from walmart will it start or will he need the files from the SD?

    I would suggest maybe just spending the money one time and just get a 16 gb

    For him though will buying a cheap 2gb card work just to get it up and running? I am asking in terms of will he need to simply buy an SD Card and put it in the droid and it will boot up fine or does he need the recovery files and everything.

    I copied all files from the SD before sending it is the reason. I do not want to give him any of my personal information but I want it up and running for him asap.

    I hear what you saying but he can get a 16gb sdcard from vzw or amazon and have in shipped in a few days. I would not want to pay 15 bucks for a 2 gb then turn around and still have to buy a 16gb.

    The Droid 1 will require a 16gb card? I am saying he will want to get it up and running as cheaply as possible. If he can spend $10 on a 4gb card that is what he is going to want to do.
