    Applied a new rom last week (BB 0.5). Worked fine for about a week, then starting yesterday it's been going completely nuts. As if a ghost is tapping the screen. It's nearly impossible to use.

    I've done a bunch of battery pulls, but nothing. Cleaned the screen, still nothing. I'm wondering if it's the rom, or maybe hardware related in the form of a defective touch sensor or something. Any help appreciated.

    Is it all the time or just when you have it plugged in.

    If you have a backup restore it and see if that resolves the issue. If so, it is the rom. If not, then start considering the hardware.

    I do have backups, but I've never gone back to applying one. I'm going to try a Nandroid restore back to an earlier version (earlier 2.2 from July) and post.

    Restoring a backup from July may take you back to 2.1. Do you remember what rom and version that was backed up?

    Well restoring back to FRF84BV04.zip did not help. Still acting crazy. Like as if it's receiving false data from the touch screen. Randomly panning back/forth up/down, opening applications, etc...

    I would go for a more recent/different backup for the simple fact you wont have to deal with being constantly prompted to update your device.

    I think that bugless build was plaqued with the constant reminder to update. I may be wrong though.

    Mark are you on the charger when this occurs? Or does it exhibit this behavior while off the charger as well?

    I may be off base but in view of the things that you've tried it seems that the issue is hardware.

    I'm thinking it's hardware related too.

    Anyone know how long the warrantee is good for?
