Take out your battery, put it back in, restart. If they still don't work, flash a different kernel.

Can some one please check. I rooted the phone and the buttons were working after that. But they stopped working after I installed unlock sgs app from market. Did anyone faced any of these issues.

Problem is all the 4 buttons didn't work no LED light and no function.

I have the kernel version of 2.6.35.11. Which one you think is good.

None of the unlock apps from the market work on the T-mobile/Telus version of the sgs2, so maybe that might be the problem? Try uninstalling it..

Or try wiping dalvik cache?

If that doesn't work, backup the apps and stuff using titanium backup and flash the rom/kernal again (factory wipe, wipe dalvik cache and other cache)

Yeah try uninstalling that app then reboot into recovery and clear your dalvik cache.

Alright well then you're going to have to do a full wipe and re flash the ROM.

Not positive that will work, but it's your only option at this point. If that doesn't work, it might be a hardware problem.

EDIT: I guess you could try clearing both caches and flashing the same ROM without a full wipe.
