    Question [Touchscreen] Software hack?

    Received today a iPhone with non working bottom part of the screen (about 1 cm from the bottom). Everything else working fine, but i can't slide to unlock to get the springboard The question is there any way to move slide to unlock bar to the top of the screen?

    Hate to break it to you, but currently there are no hacks or mods to do this and lets face it... its broken, you need:
    a)send it back to apple if its official
    b)return to seller if unofficial, pre-hacked, etc
    or c) find some repair company

    if you still do not want to give up hope, heres a non-slide "slide to unlock" method I found by using 2 fingers and placing one at start of bar and 2nd and end, heres a video of how to do it I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VL7NrZA8u_M

    good luck

    Hello everyone,

    this thread is more similar to my new problem.

    So, from the begining:

    I was using my 1.1.2 otb with xsim (china3gpp) for three weeks, everything was superb, just couple days before, I saw "no sim", tried to reinsert sim couple times but didn't bothered myself because software unlock was out. Just before doing that i used ipod and so on, I' didn't pay attention that I can't change ipod volume with that thing on the bottom of the screen, only with button on the side of iphone.
    All other functions worked perfectly.
    Next day I performed software unlock (in iClarified described installer method), everything went smoothly. Execpt that no more applications from instaler can be run. As I see it is kinda global problem for the moment, my story is not about that.
    And now:

    THE PROBLEM:
    If I try to write a sms, I open that "keyborad" everything is ok, I eneter to "To": start typing text and then i recognise that i can't use buttons on the bottom line, they are ".?123" , "space" and "return". I can hit them as many time as I want, doesn't matter gently or not - nothing, with next line from the bottom where are shift z x c v buttons everything is normal.

    If that was screen problem then it shouldn't work at all with all applications, but it is not so, in phone dialing mode I can use bottom of a screen perfectly (favourites, recent, contact etc buttons which are on the botom line), in safari "back" and "forard" buttons ar working fine.

    Everywhere exept sms writing, www address manual entering and ipod volume control buble the bottom of a screen is working as usual.

    What could it be ????? Is it possible that different application uses different layer of the screen ?

    Is there any chance that it is software problem ? Not the big deal this problem, but write sms without spaces misses me of a bit.

    Have anyone similar luck ? any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for a tip, Andy_S, but ... I red all the threads there and seems that this hack adjusts all the area of touch screen, it is not exactly what i need (but anyway thanks for a tip a lot), because I don't have "completely dead" area of the screen in ALL aplications. As I wrote, the bottom of the screen doesn't work only in sms writing(.?123, space and return buttons) and in ipod mode (volume control in the bottom of the screen), but all other buttons locations are exactly where they should be while I touch those buttons. And in all other applications all the screen area functions as it has to, precise and perferct...

    I know it is definitely a hardware problem, and it is a bit sad

    So I believe that it is a software fault with your phone. Try to verginize it, that should help...

    Right, we will see, first I'll try maybe go for 1.1.3 from current status, if it will not help, then virginise... even I don't like to experiment with such things with quite expensive device...own device...
