So i re-doctored my sprintified verizon franken pre2 last night trying to fix the various things that were plaguing me, in anticipation of the OTA 2.2.4 update. All my frustrations previously were minor and just had to work through them. Now, post-2.2.4-OA, the thing is darn near unuseable:
1) Major issue - the touch screen has essentially become non-responsive after a single touch. No idea what is going on, because as soon as I hit the power button, it will go dark, I can then hit the button again, slide the unlock, hit the touchscreen for whatever just once and then it hangs again. Other things continue to work, like the ability to soft-power-off and the clock continues to function, I just can't initiate any actions via the touchscreen, without first soft-powering it off and then on again. But even then it is only for one touch of the screen (maybe two if I am lucky). I have rebooted it 15 or more times now and it does this EVERY time.
2) The first time after the OTA it would not connect to Sprint for Data. This happened again the next 4 or 5 reboots and that seems to have fixed itself. But I can say for sure because of the touchscreen issue doesn't let me get very far.
I am worried that I have gotten a bad piece of hardware (and ebay prices have gone crazy again, or I would just get another phone and start over).
I am going to try the 2.2.4 meta script and see what happens...
