Faulty Trackpad

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

It appears that my trackpad is faulty (It will move around but wont "click" anything) now this is not a massive issue for me as I dont use it very often however when I do use it I use it for the clockworkmod recovery menu.

Is there any "hack" or alternative method I can use to flash a new ROM onto my handset or even just to carry out a wipe?

Thanks

Okay, slightly worse problems now, it seems by doing a "Factory Reset" from within the ROM something has gone very badly.

When the phone reboot after/during the factory reset of settings it failed to reboot permanently hanging in the Android Splash screen.

I assume I am going to have to run some adb commands but dont really have any idea where to start.

The other option would be to try and flash a ROM onto it (I can still get into the recovery menu) but without being able to click the trackpad I cant work out how to do that either.

Okay,

I have managed to recover the handset somewhat.

Firstly I booted into the bootloader and then set up Fastboot USB.

From there I was able to flash the official T-Mobile RUU (RUU_Bravo_TMO_UK_1.15.110.11_Radio_32.30.00.28U_4. 05.00.11_release_122755.exe)

The downside of this is that I am now on HBOOT .80 with no recovery rom installed.

Not going to do anymore tonight but will definitely be trying to get MCR back on. Anyone know of a way to do this without using the recovery console?

Can I push it with an adb command or package it into an RUU?

Or even use ROM Manager to flash it?

Everything is going quite well now. I managed to re-root using unrevoked.

I was still unable to use the recovery console because of the faulty Trackpad however I wad able to use ROM Manager to flash r9 without any trouble.

The end result again being that I have a useable phone and am able to flash ROMs. Trackpad still doesn't work but as its a hardware fault its not really a surprise :P

It would be nice if I could configured ROM Manager to use my actual recovery console instead of the one on the sdcard.
