I was running and i accidentally tugged on my headphones and my phone flew. i had an otter box defender on, and i found a small crack in the top left next to the front facing camera. now the crack is not the problem its the fact that a part of the screen doesn't work, it goes from edge to edge is about 1 cm up and down. does anybody know whats up?
btw i have cyanogenmod running on it and i already tried factory resetting it to no avail

the g2 screen is very fragile the way it was designed has the digitizer wires running around entire screen but the flex cable is in the top right around where the front camera is a single crack will break touch on almost entire screen mainly up to the area where it happened; you should look into a replacement or warranty if you decide to do it yourself make sure to buy lcd+digitizer, I know that replacing only digitizer is cheaper but it's an almost impossible difficult task, I have lots of experience in taking apart electronics and decided to try and replace only digitizer with my g2 in December which ended up in lcd breaking half way through screen dissasembly
