Fix Found For Touchscreen Blues For Sensation Owners

It seems that Sensation owners have had a few issues since purchasing this brand new offering by HTC. According to several reports across the web, the device in question seems to have problems with the touchscreen which start manifesting within a week or so after use. Certain areas of the screen become unresponsive with no apparent reason behind it. After a lot of testing and trial and error, the faulty screen was attributed to the ground to the device’s body coming lose and thus causing static electricity build up, which ends up affecting the screen. Thankfully, XDA member zmfl found a solution that would possibly fix your issues if you are indeed experiencing these problems. Keep in mind that it is possible that your particular issues are being caused by other defects. But all in all, it may be worth a shot.

Please read everything carefully and post your feedback and results so that others can follow the correct steps if they need some tweaking.

The issue addressed here is related to a small silver pin located on the back of the phone (pictures below). That damn thing is the screen’s “grounding” connection to the back cover (more about that in abrown0809’s post here). In time (one week approx.) the pin starts loosing proper contact to the cover, and the screen becomes unresponsive. This is either due to the cover getting loose, or because the pin isn’t built the way it should be (thanks HTC). You might also experience this issue after installing an aftermarket battery (Anker, Chichitec, etc.), since they are usually thicker. A thicker battery could easily separate the back cover from the pin.

In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.
