Hello XDA users, ive been having a lot of issues on my ATRIX Touchscreen, sometimes the screen gets stuck with a some weird case of ghost fingers on my touchscreen that has became more and more annoying these last days because my touch gets stuck, or just open's a hell lot of apps or screens, or just tries to swipe al over and get stuck.

To 'temp' fix this i need to shutdown the screen and then turn it on again, sometimes a battery pull also works allowing to work more time without annoyances.

THINGS I'VE TRIED:
-The ''cooking'' procedure as stated on the Moto DROID forums here (Actually i do have a Milestone II, A.K.A Droid II with the same issue) no good.
-Flashing PDSfix, works for better screen calibration, but goes nuts again at some time (Also PDSfix causes SDcard issues on CM10)
-Cleaning the entire touchscreen with isopropilic alcohol (exterior)

THINGS TO TRY:
-Cleaning the touchscreen internally with alcohol and some clean wipes.
-(WORST CASE SCENARIO) Change the touchscreen...

Thing is, do you guys have another workaround??? Thanks !!

Change the Digitizer/buy replacement unit and do a motherboard swap

Get a priest to exorsise your phone!

Seriously, first check the static electricity, it can cause all sorts of troubles.
You can get a digitizer fairly cheap these days, if you know how to dissassemble the phone, is a good option

I know that feel. I live in Córdoba, so here it's even pricey. Sadly, it's about the only option
