    Default Resize screen

    Hello,

    I have a jailbroken Iphone 2g with 3.1.2 firmware. There is a problem with the touchscreen; there are 2 dead strips that are unresponsive to touch (at the very top and bottom of the screen). This makes the phone pretty much unusable. I've tried all the software fixes I can think of, including increasing the sensitivity and restoring. Unfortunately, I do not have one of the serial numbers that qualify for free replacement.

    So here is my question: Is it possible to somehow hack the phone and make the usable screen smaller? That way I can just avoid the dead spots on the touchscreen.

    Thanks for any help.

    Are you sure the jailbreak didn't do this?

    Yes, because I tried restoring the phone with official firmware.

    I've been looking around in the filesystem for something that has to do with screen dimensions, but I can't find anything. anyone know if it exists somewhere?

    When you restored did you restore as NEW? Not from backup.

    Yes, I restored it as new with the latest official firmware 3.1.2. Previously it had 3.0.1 and it had the same touchscreen problem.
