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

    I got a rooted droid and have had a rooted droid for a while and all of a sudden yesterday my search soft key went out. It still lights up but when i touch it nothing happens. Along with that the virtual keyboard i cannot hit the L key or delete key. It seems like a slim portion of my touch screen doesnt respond to touch at all. I dont know if its mechanical or the rooted phone did something. Please help.

    A reboot followed by a battery pull would be the first things I'd try.

    Free Hand Touch Lite - try that market app and see if you can scribble all over your phone's screen to test its responsiveness. An alternative keyboard is an option too.

    You can also do a nandroid backup, then restore a previous backup and see if that makes a difference.

    Finally, do something like the 3rd link in my signature to go back to stock to see if that changes the responsiveness of the screen and/or to see if the keyboard gets better. That should let you know if it is hardware or software. If hardware you'll want to be stock before returning anyways.

    -- As this is a rooted phone with a rooted type answer...I'm moving the thread to the hacking section for RS questions.
