..and sometimes keyboard went unresponsive, but a simple "back" and relaunch of keyboard and it works again..weird..both on stock 4.0.4 and Gthrill for G3N..
Now all of a sudden, I have about a half-inch horizontal area about 3/4 down my screen that doesn't respond to touch. I have tried to use the Android Dev Mode to show where touches are detected, and verified that there is no touch registered in that area.
What happened was I've had a friend with a faulty SD Card, and he tried it on my phone to see if it works and it's not his phone's SD Slot at fault. The process took us a few Boot-Poweroff sequence, and in the last one it's where I noticed that area was not responding to touch any longer. (This could not have been the reason - or, it's the bootup - poweroff sequence was the one that did the damage, but not quite sure)
I was on Lolfisch v1.0 at the time. Tried rolling back to stock ICS using SP Flash Tool, formatted my own MicroSD Card, still nothing. It's at this point I'm considering doing an RMA with Merimobiles, so I've contacted them about it. The rep told me to email the Tech Support, and of course I did. They said they'd honor the one year warranty they have if it's indeed hardware issue, as they are still in process of looking for an update that can possibly fix that issue (I doubt there is any update, since my Stock ROM is the last and only Official ROM Jiayu released for the G3N) I got my phone last April - so two months into use and I got this damage.
Anybody else got this issue? Maybe it's a one-off? Just to let you know, I have a Jiayu G3N (S501 Chip) and now running on stock in preparation for the RMA.
