Question [Q] Unresponsive screen after flashing ROM/Kernel

Hello All,

First time post and as an offering, I will say 'thanks' to anyone that responds in a positive manner to my post (trying to win some friends)

Here's my issue, I have an Arc S LT18i.
Unlocked bootloader and rooted.

Whenever I flash anything custom the touch screen fails to respond, i've flashed LupusV7, slim bean 3.1 and 3.2 (with arc fusion 3.6 and 4.5) and Super Jelly Bean. All seemingly start without any issues and the physical buttons work no problem. BUT the screen refuses to work in anyway at all!!

I have made sure I wiped the system, cache and delvak (sp?)

Any help greatly appreciated, I am a NOOB but underneath it all I'm just trying to make the most of this wonderful Arc S...

Anything you want to know, please ask away...

Please help.

Namaste

Ricky

Try doing a clean install
- Flash stock ICS .587 ftf
- Flash Kernel
- Wipe data,cache & dalvik
- Install ROM

Hello and thank you for the reply...
I flashed stock ICS .587 (world india) from this site talk.sonymobile.com/thread/35239
Does that count as stock ICS .587?

And then followed the rest of the instructions, the exact same thing happens... buttons work but the touch screen does not!?

Any other ideas please? Or does anyone else have a suggestion?

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to me.

Are you using compatible ROM and Kernel?

Hello, thanks for the reply...

According to the Slim Bean page, I can use ANY kernel with that rom. But also, if I just have the Lupusv7 Kernel on there, the touch screen doesn't work within that, so not a ROM/Kernel conflict I belive.

I've also tried other Kernel/ROM combinations, same thing keeps on happening. Touchscreen works 100% with a SE restore, stock ROM.

Any other ideas please??

It's best to use the recommended kernel as stated on the ROM thread. Try another kernel and see how things go.

You sure you installed device-specific patch / chose correct phone in AROMA?

Hello,

As previously mentioned, the reccomended kernel is Lupusv7, When i flash this Kernel into recovery mode, all looks well but as it has a touch screen interface this still doesn't work!

I'm presuming that it cannot be a conflict as it's happen before I instll the new ROM etc... the touch screen doesn't even work within the GUI of the Lupusv7 kernel.

I can get multiple ROMS to load with different kernels but so far, none have booted with the touch screen working!!

I am very much a noob but have read loads of articles on how this should be done, unless i'm missing something very obvious which isn't stated then I dont see anyone else having this issue.

Any clues people?

Thanks, Ricky

Hello Someguyfromhell,

I haven't used AROMA, the guides i've been reading haven't mentioned this!?
This is the process I went through:

flashed stock ICS ROM
flashed kernel
wipe data/cache/davlik
flashed rom

rebooted, ROM loads up and the touch screen doesn't work.

Any help you can give me on AROMA, links etc?
I'm looking right now, but a 'leg up' would be great.

Thanks for the reply.

Ricky

Info 2 here what to do

- Make sure you had installed Official 4.0.4 ftf pack
- When flashing official ftf pack remember to exclude / tick these things:
1. simlock.ta (Exclude TA)
2. Kernel.sin (Exclude kernel)
3. FOTA (Exclude FOTA)
After flash successful, power on your phone and let it start completely
- Now you can start to install any ROM
1.Flash the Recommended Kernel: Vengeance , KTG Anzu , RUSH
2. Place ROM on SD card
3. Power off the phone and boot into CWM
3. Backup and restore > choose Backup
4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
5. Mounts and storage > Format /system
6. Advanced > Wipe battery stats
7. Install zip from SD card > Choose the rom
8. if rom uses aroma Follow on screen instructions on AROMA, remember to choose "Unlocked bootloader" and also the correct kernel modules and of course the correct phone model
9. After complete installation tick "Reboot" and let the phone restart
10. Give the phone a good full charge, and enjoy ur phone !
11.THE MOST IMPORTANT THING PRESS THANKS if I helped
PRESS THANKS If I HELPED
