Everything worked fine as it meant to be when i got to bed.
But today morning (first time I saw the mobile) the Touch and Capacitive buttons didn't responded, so i searched some threats and the answer I got was it was a hardware failiure. The same was confirmed by Micromax service center .
My Question is
Is it possible for a Custom Rom to damage Digitizer? (after installation everything worked fine)
or is it a coincidence?
The reason I asked this question is I cant live without Custom ROM
Please help me with an answer...
Thanks in advance
As far as digitizer of A116 is concerned it may get partially stop working if you have installed Custom Rom on 4.1.2 (not 4.2.1) directly. It is recommended that you get your phone upgraded to 4.2.1 from company. This is important because 4.2.1 upgrades your TOUCHPANEL while upgrading which is called TPUpgrade. If you have bought phone long time before with 4.1.2 then TPUpgrade process is very important.
Some experienced users can upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.2.1 and perform TPUpgrade process which is required to be done carefully. After upgrade of rom, this TPUpgrade process runs automatically for one time and while it is in progress, user should not touch the screen of mobile until next message appears. Otherwise TPUpgrade fails and phone is bricked.
Coming back to Custom Rom discussion.
Generally custom rom can not damage your hardware because its just a software and at least it cannot damage touchscreen physically. But sometimes touch may stop working if there is any problem in rom or the rom file is corrupted or any other unknown reason.
The solutions is you flash any other custom rom or especially flash latest Stock Rom. Either recovery method (flash from recovery) or SPTools method (flash from pc). Mostly SPTools method solves any such wierd issues.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
