1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
