    i have a D1 rotted running LGB 3.5 and i believe i have a virus.i believe i got it thru gmail.the phone will go apes@#t and start opening up stuff on my droid.it has sent texts and made calls.also dl'ed apps from the market.the left side of the screen will stop working at times and many time cant get anything to open.is there a way to completely wipe my harddrive.i have done the wipe/factory reset many times and does not help.if i lose root it does not matter,i can always reroot.or am i just screwed?vzw told me that they have a virus blocker installed on thier phones and when i rooted it opened it up to viruses.

    well these kinds of uncontrollable phone stories usually amount to a damaged digitizer and afaik there is no way a virus could do that to your phone.

    well i would probably go with fox dye's suggestion and sbf the phone on the off chance that it is indeed a software issue. if it still persists then bring it in to vzw and see what they can do.
