Hi... I was on latest Temasek CM11, and flashed Googy max kernel. I got a bootloop, and touch screen completely unresponsive, even on philz recovery. Tried factory reset, another rom, kernel, etc ... Now the phone boots normally, but no touchscreen at all. I´ve heard about burned touchscreen controller when flashing a wrong recovery or kernel, but it wasn´t the case.

Is there any last solution before replacing the screen (again) ?

can software really cause certain hardware to stop working especially the touch and/or LCD ???. because I have a S3 here too, but the problem is I can't see anything but the touch works. phone boots fine an everything. played music (by randomly touching areas of the screen till I heard a song started playing) it makes sounds when I touch tap the screen, vibrates when i'm typing stuff

the person i bought it from says its a software issue. idk if they are lying to me or not. only way I'm gonna know is if I put another motherboard in and see if my screen

turns on. u can try that too if u have a friend or something that has a S3 too, if the touch works with their motherboard, then its either your motherboard or firmware issue
