I'm going to try a couple of things and see if I can achieve s-off before I attempt to downgrade for root again.


Still having a hard time wrapping my head around that . Makes me wonder about a few things.

Bootloaders are a real pain. They can cause all types of issues that you normally wouldn't encounter.

Ya NO... I'm pretty sure that your not supposed to expose your devices to extreme hot/cold temps I would NEVER do that. The only time I've ever done that was with my G1 is the battery temps were dangerously high... But that has never happened with my evo shift, my battery temps never reach over 100 degrees even when I OC to 2GHZ. We're discussing touchscreen issues and what the possible causes might be like the bootloader ect, this thread is not for discussion of battery temps!

Bootloader + Touchscreen . What's the bag of rice for? Oh I get it's for when I'm at Sprint waiting for them to repair my phone. I'll have more than enough time to make myself something to eat.

You need to drop the phone in a glass of coca-cola, as the carbonation creates bubbles that will go behind the screen, and ensure a proper connection (be sure to avoid off brand soda, as it lacks proper carbonation). Following this, be sure to try turning on the phone while still wet. This allows for a strong current to permeate the screen, and ensure step one worked. After this you may notice that the phone is sticky. This is solved by putting the phone in a jar of ants. Finally, kill the ants by putting the phone in the freezer.

The soda hack is a sure fix for any issue, and from what I have heard, it makes android nearly as functional as iOS.
