Please Help. Jailbreak/unlock followed by unresponsive screen issues!
Hi everyone, I hope I’m posting this in the right forum. I tried to do a search for: intermittent touch screen, but there was nothing found.
Is it possible for a jailbreak unlock gone wrong to cause intermittent screen issues?
So here is my problem, yesterday I bought a used iphone 2g it was locked and on att network. I started the jailbreaking/ unlocking process using blackrain, but, IDK, I was having some trouble. Somehow cydia was installed on the iphone. Later I realized that the old sim card was still in there. So I took it out and decide to try the process again. I used a different program. I was successful in jailbroking unlocking my iphone 2g with a program called…pwnage, actually I used an iclarified tutorial.
Ok. So while playing with the settings I noticed that certain parts of the screen were unresponsive, that had previously been responsive. And when I say previously I mean I touched it once before and it worked. Specifically it was the “About” selection, the “Cellular data network” and really anything else in that “area”. Above it is fine, below it is fine, but those spots, not so much. If I bounce my finger on it a couple of times it’ll work, but not always.
Anyways, I was thinking about “restoring” and starting over. BUT my itunes 9. has the 3.1.2 update that everyone says not to do. So IDK…
Here is what I got from the about screen (when I was able to open it):
Version: 3.1 (7C144)
Carrier: Carrier 5
Also, I cant download any apps. When I click the install thing (for like facebook) it shows free, and then install, But it doesn’t actually do anything…but one thing at a time right?? PLEASE HELP! Thanks
