You know, with that "HELP ME IM LOST" type messages you dont help resolving the problem at all.
Try installing different roms, backflashing your original one, to see if there is any solution.
Maybe you can try flashing OLED only roms, or stock 2.1. I had to take back mine for an exchange tbh, but
some people say that they original 2.1 rom works. Dont know if it help you out or not.



I think maybe its also to bring attention to the point its not just a one off and if someone has the time, could they look into it.

as currently anyone buying a new phone with the newer se tup could end up having wasted their cash if this situation is the norm :D

if you can run seb404's romdump utility it'll grab everything we need to know, like boot.img recovery.img and system plus the config.gz from /proc/config.gz

OK, but a quick question, should I run this for the stock ROM, or one of the 2.1 ROMs that the screen doesn't respond with.
And also where is the best place to post the dump files ?

I'll check it out, ASAP :D
BTW, kernel dump would have been totally enough, that's the cause, and that is only 4MB :(

Were there any trials with Éclair ROMs? That would be the easiest to compare with!

Hello, i think i have same problem. I got my zte blade (branded as uk orange san francisco) yesterday. The problem seems to me very strange so i will write all details to avoid missing anything important.
Device information:
Firmware version: 2.1-update1
Baseband version: P729BB01
Kernel version: 2.6.29 zte-kernel@Zdroid-SMT
Build number: OUK_P729BV1.0.0B10

After receiving phone I played with stock firmware for quite a while, then i unlocked the phone, and decided to upgrade android. Method with installing ClockWorkMod from computer didn't work for me (phone didn't react to holding volume up while pressing power) so i installed UniversalAndroot-1.6.2-beta5.apk (md5sum e37d6c0b28c0a94e7b0a94702d5b18da) and RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk (md5sum 5ad261036fb7d91713be4b2ea3bac453). Using thees programs i installed recovery-clockwork-3.0.0.6-blade.img (md5sum 4b949d51c54501e1a3dd0a4c6095766e). After booting to recovery i first of all made backup and copied it to computer. Then i partitioned 2GB memory card from phone (512 ext + 0 swap) but after mounting Windows 7 didn't see fat partition, but only 1.86GB unformatted drive. So while card was still in phone i formatted it to fat and copied to memory card file JOHN77_V5.zip (md5sum 4a3e736932330b2be1a38937413d1695). I did all wipes and installation according to instruction, and when it finished phone booted into new android and everything worked. I played with new firmware, installed some apps and then i have decided that i need more space and i need to get ext partition working on memory card. I booted into recovery, partitioned memory card with same 512 ext partition and after turning off phone i put memory card into linux computer. All partitions were visible so i copied JOHN77_V5.zip to fat partition again and after putting memory card back i installed it again (compare to previous time i might have used more wipe options). But after restarting touchscreen didn't work anymore. I saw message about touching android, all buttons were working but i couldn't do anything because touchscreen didn't work. I thought this had something to do with memory card partitioning because it was the only thing i have changed. I tried many different combinations with/without memory card and wiping but nothing worked. As a last resort i tried installing CyanogenMod 7 nightly build with same effect: everything worked but not touchscreen. At this point i was sure that my touchscreen is dead so i was going to return phone and restored backup with orange firmware which i did in the very beginning. Surprisingly touchscreen worked again. I tried installing other ROMs after that and touchscreen worked only with orange firmware. So i am stuck with android 2.1 :D

I am not that good with android but i don't understand how is it possible that JOHN77_V5 worked only first time and doesn't work now.

hmm i Had this problem. but after i pulled out the battery multiple times i just waited. That solved the problem for me. Maybe you just have to wait a bit. An flashing LED does mean something doesnt it? Try that but i had to wait about 10 minutes. While i was spamming every button the phone has. Now after every reboot it just works fine.

Hi everyone,

Same issue here. Bought this phone last week.

I have tested with Japanese Jellyfish R9 & flb-Froyo-blade-r10b and this issue manifests.

Each time I flashed the device I wiped the cache and the user/data partition.

It seems intermittent as sometimes I can power it up the touch screen operates fine but more often than not it doesn't work.

It works fine on the Orange Stock ROM.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If anyone needs me to capture anything from the device please let me know and I will be happy to help out!

Hi, I also have a very similar problem,

Got my Orange San Francisco about 3weeks ago with firmware 2.1-update1 and the touchscreen worked fine.

However after 'ROMing' with FLB-Froyo r10 the touchscreen doesnt work intermittently after turning the phone on.

After taking the battery out and turning it on numerous times it finally starts to work again and there are no issues until I have to switch it off again.
Sometimes it works straight away, other times Im having to restart it 20 odd times to get it working again.

I have no ideas why this would do that. Any ideas would be great.

Thanks

I have the same problem with both FLB and Swedish Spring.
Touchscreen suddenly stopped working last week, taking battery out didn't help. A few hours later it started working again, later in the day it stopped working.

Flashed to Swedish Spring but still experiencing the same problem.

Very strange.

Balbik: At the moment my internet is not good enough to upload 100+ MB i will do it tomorrow at work.

Some new info about my phone: when dialing *983*24474636# it shows this:

TouchScreen Inforamtion:
touchscreen module
name : synaptics
i2c address : 0x22
IC type : 2000 series
firmware version : TM1541
module : synaptics + TPK

Is this same as working phones?

hi

i have the same problem
(link to my other post touchscreen-stopped-working-after-flashing-custom-rom )

so i tested the input output with the stock kernel and the new one.
for "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" and "cat /proc/bus/input/handlers" the output is the same, so both kernel recognized the touchscreen ?? but with "cat /dev/input/event1" there was only an output with the stock kernel .... !!!



its the same for custom ROMs with 2.1 kernel (Swedish_Snow_RLS1) touchscreen doesnt work ... so i flashed only the stock boot.img on the custom ROM 2.1 (Swedish_Snow_RLS1) and it works again ....

so the problem is the driver ? how can i get the new driver ?

Has anyone with a no-touch-B10 phone tried to run with Swedish Spring?
I ask that because that should have the very latest ZTE (non-kernel) proprietary software.
Newer even than B10, I think.
Certainly Swedish Spring has newer versions of the proprietary drivers than anything else on this forum
So, I'd expect it to support any hardware variations that B10 supported.

If Swedish Spring shows the same problem, then my guess would be that the tweak is in the kernel ...
