Default [Q] Lost use of touchscreen (GT-I9300)

Hi all, I am a first time poster

I own a galaxy S3 (GT I9300)

first problem...
i flashed a rom called CrDroid and it wiped my EFS and IMEI so i couldnt make or receive sms or calls and got a generic 0049 IMEI

Upon trying to fix the issue, i tried to flash CWM recovery touch and my touchscreen stopped working. so, its a software issue, not hardware

i have tried flashing many different roms, kernels etc but nothing will fix my problems.

is there someone who can assist me in fixing my problems? (flash touchscreen drivers and restore EFS data [in that order])


Can someone give me information on how to reflash EVERYTHING on my phone including system and root (and any other) partitions?

i am NOT interested in sending my phone back to samsung or to a repair centre

You'll need a new touchscreen, nothing you can do with software as you've blown the controller.
