    My DROID 4 was rooted ICS but no ROM & no safestrap installed. However, I still opted to do the entire process as listed in the 1st post. (SBF, Data wipe, etc) Everything seemed to go without any problems. I re-rooted via the razr blade utility (which didn't take the first time so I had to re-wipe data & do it again) and then re-installed all my apps from the market. Afterwards, I restored data via Titanium to those apps that needed it with no issues that I could tell. I got most everything done & used the phone here & there before calling it a night. Everything was working fine. Thru-out the process, I had rebooted the phone several times.

    This morning, I turned on my phone & everything was still as it was. I reboot every morning and this morning was no exception. This is where my problem starts. This is how my screen has looked ever since that reboot and several other reboots this morning: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17061639/2013-04-01 05.55.36.png

    I can access the notification bar and go into settings from there. I can receive phone calls & text messages. I just don't have a screen that I can interact with. My hard buttons register with a haptic buzz but nothing happens while on that screen. If I'm in the settings or text msg app...then they work mostly normal. Also, the screen shot obviously works as does the dropbox automatic upload which is how I have the picture. I am getting notifications for G+ and once I get those & other notifications I can access those apps like normal.

    I am suspecting my launcher (have ADW & Nova installed but using ADW right now) to be the culprit but before I start uninstalling things I figured I would check here to see if anyone else had this problem. I just don't understand why it was fine last nite & now is giving me fits.

    Since I wasn't using it right now, I uninstalled Nova. Now everything is back. :blink:

    Edit: Turns out an app called Quick Launch was causing the problem, not Nova. I guess my problem was that I didn't select "Always" when it asked which launcher to use.

    damn. i thought it would work for me but as you see, shift button does nothing. same for caps. keyborad was fine before this update. motorola stop caring for their keyboard phones after the second droid so i guess that means i need another android platform.

    ***
    Okay after reading more of the forum i reset the phone and the keyboard kinda works. Expect now i have to hold down shift, which is werid because right after the reset i didnt have to. Just press and it would be activated. But the backspace would do werid editing after earsing one character which it doesnt do now because it reverted back to this.

    My top 3 annoyances with the update so far:

    I am finding that the keyboard works like it used to on some apps while it won't on others and that annoying notification continues to pop up every time I type something.

    My battery life has reduced by @ 25%. This is a best guestimate btw. Is anyone else getting the same or better battery life?

    There seems to be no more "Favorites" folder for my contacts. I have to tap the "People" icon and then go to "Favorites". I used to have my starred contacts in a favorites icon that took me straight to it. Am I missing it somewhere or is it gone now?

    If you go into the settings of the keyboard notification and set it all up how you want it, it will go away.
    However, set your keyboard to default so it doesn't mess up your keys. Sadly, this will not fix the SHIFT issue.


    Nah, battery life is worse here. Not sure of the cause as I have VERY little installed on my device. Just when I use it more: texting, bank app, a few others it seems to drain faster than before. IF I leave it idle it can last 2 days, but usage kills it faster than ICS.


    I think it is gone just like the weather widget. I had to D/L AccuWeather.


    The odd thing is I have JB on the XT926 and it works WAY better than ICS. Fixed a ton of issues too. Can have the MHS on all day(8-10hrs) and still have 40%+ battery life, but the battery on a XT926 is freaking amazing. Probably one of the best batteries out there. It's a beast ;)

    I set it up but it keeps coming back whenever I use the keyboard.


    It is? Please elaborate. I would love to have one touch access to my favorites again.

    Yes, this is how I am accessing now. However, the "People" shortcut/app defaults to my entire contact list. I want it to default to my favorites.

    I can't/don't want to use the widget. For one, I'm using ADW and that widget doesn't seem to work. I can't even find it on the widget list. Also, I wanted a shortcut that I can put in the dockbar.

    Having trouble resetting my Droid 4 back to Factory Defaults. I get to the part where I have to hold both of the Volume buttons when the android is laying on his back with his front open and a red triangle above him, but it doesn't do anything. It just sits at that screen forever. Thoughts? Edit: Nevermind, I was being impatient.
