    Hi, I have a droid 2 cdma version (black) and a droid 2 global (white).
    The cdma works completely. It boots into 49 seconds.
    The GSM droid global boots and sometimes it´s stuck on logo. Then I get the battery out and in again,
    hope that reboots normally until it does.

    I have an issue with the physical keyboard on the D2G, I can´t write with it, only fey keys seem to work.
    For example on a text field I can´t erase or go back with the arrow keys.

    Since the internal components seem to be at best equally the same, I was thinking to disassemble
    my CDMA version and place that keyboard on the D2G.

    Has anyone tried that in this forum?

    Otherwise the real problem seems to be a circuit with the external keys. Cam hardware button doesn´t work, volume goes up or down,
    depending on the day...and basically I´m afraid to go into bootloader because I don´t know if the arrow keys will work.
    I´ve done factory reset, but this definetly looks like a hardware problem.

    Please any recommendations before dissasembling both devices?
