    So i tried rooting, didn't go so well. Now I can't accept calls, and the home and search buttons don't work, any ideas on what happened or how to fix it??

    did you simply root, or did you also install a kernel or custom rom?

    if you installed a kernel, you might try re-flashing it or flashing another kernel; i once lost functionality of the home button due to the kernel i tried and flashing another one fixed it... otherwise you might just try another ROM or, as Johnly said, doing it again... just make sure you wipe

    how did you root? simply rooting shouldn't cause the problems you're having...

    well heck... the key is the instructions, and if you followed all of them exactly right, it should've worked...

    If you want to try flashing a different kernel, go HERE and try one of the low voltage kernels for Froyo. By "flashing", I might not be using that word correctly, but basically just change the filename of the kernel to update.zip, put it on the root of your sdcard, reboot into sprecovery, go to install, allow update.zip, and install update.zip (or however it's worded), and it will "flash" (i.e. install) the kernel. Then reboot and see...

    I was thinking maybe you had simply rooted 2.1, in which case you shouldn't be having these problems. However, you are essentially installing a ROM with this 2.2 release, and with ROMs come potential problems. Same with the kernel that's built in. Here are the instructions I followed when I moved to 2.2 and it's worked flawlessly so far, and I tediously went line by line to make sure I did it exactly as this guy said:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...royo-step-step-installation-2.html#post528613

    I'm not saying you didn't follow the instructions or anything, but those worked perfectly for me. If a new kernel doesn't work, you, unfortunately, might just have to try it again. :(
