So I've had this same problem for the past month. There is a 1cm or so high deadzone that spans the width of my screen just about lower than the midway point from top to bottom.

The only app I know of that works fine is "Android Bot Maker" (XDA link here) sadly, it can't record the touches, but you can set it manually yourself, by finding out the coordinates by enabling "show pointer location" on the developers category of the OS settings.

have the same issues as the first bloggers that posted. I have the Nexus 4 16Gb and in February 2014, I cracked the screen and changed the digitizer. In the process I tore the lithium polymer bag for the battery and subsequently the phone started to have a sweet smell. After 5 days the phone started acting up with these ghost images which was typing the ...

You could get a USB-OTG cable, which allows you to connect USB devices to Android devices via the USB port (so long as the Android device supports OTG, which the A700 does). If you plug in a mouse you'll get a mouse cursor to work with; you could even use a USB hub to attach both a keyboard and a mouse if you want to type instead of using the on-screen ...

You can be 99.9% sure the touchscreen is fine. Battery wasn't damaged too. If the touchscreen still behaves erroneously after unplugging, then rubbing it with a soft cloth should help. This is a common issue with cheap chargers. It indicates that charger may not be safe to use with any device - it may catch fire or explode. Prolonged use of such chargers ...

Yes, if the phone is connected to the internet, you can install apps from the Google Play web interface](https://play.google.com/store/apps) without touching the phone.

Well with the boot loader unlocked you can temporarily boot up into recovery by using fastboot: fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-mako.img This will then give you adb access to your device to get files off etc. The adb debug mode could then be turned on by editing a settings file and copying in the crypto keys generated by adb on the host computer. ...

Finally found solution via editing /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db file via sqlite3. Just adb pull that file to your computer, if you use stock recovery you must mount userdata partition manually, in that case see Android ADB Shell Recovery Mounting for hints. Also you can't just pull the file directly but copy it inside adb ...

I recommend getting Air Swiper with which you can turn on your device just by swiping above the sensor (which is located with your front camera), and you can also turn it off by swiping as well.
