Strange touchscreen/OS problem
I've got my Dutch Tmobile G1 and rooted it like 1 month ago, I loaded it with the JF ADP 1.5 version, it's been working fine ever since.
That was until somewhere last week, I experienced that my touchscreen wasn't responding, the picture on the screen was fine, and I could still use the trackball to navigate through the phone. Some minutes later after resetting the phone it suddenly worked again.
On friday I thought my phone would be ripe for the trashcan, because it started again having those touchscreen problems, but on top of that I was having serious problems with the OS, opening the dialer would even cause an "unexpected error" message coming up..
So I wiped the phone, and after startup I had the welcom guide asking me to poke the android, but I couldn't since the touchscreen was still not working :S
Even on this screen pushing the Emergency Dialer button caused an "unexpected error" to pop up.
So I restored a Nandroid backup I took some weeks ago and was back where I left off : the OS started OK but still no touch and unexpected errors on the most basic applications.
Then I decided to load the JF ADP1.5 update.zip again, this went fine but after startup same situation again( no touch and errors appearing)
After that I decided to accept my defeat and turned off the phone. I wanted to take it back to the shop and get it replaced/repaired.
However, before leaving to the shop I turned it on again and suddenly everything was fine again :S
It worked fine during the weekend, but today again the touchscreen's not working, as of now no unexpected errors though...
Something tells me this is a software problem which I could probably fix myself (saving me several weeks of missing my G1
). The problem is I don't know how...
I've got ADB working on my PC so I have access to the console of the G1, if now only someone could help me do some troubleshooting for the touchscreen problem.
Is there anything I could do besides re-loading the update.zip (that obviously didn't help), or should I just take it back to the shop??
