    so i put the leaked ota on my phone from a month or so back... Then, I wanted to put the official 2.2 ota on the phone manually. So i read that i have to root first, then i can revert to stock 2.1, then apply the new 2.2 ota. I rooted and got to the clockworkmod recovery menu. Here is where the problem is.

    My optical joystick does not work after I went jetskiing with my phone. So I cant select anything from that menu. I can pull the battery and let it boot up to the regular home screen with sense.

    so now what?

    Volume/power buttons still work in clockwork.

    You should be able o use the volume buttons to navigate and power to select in clockwork. I just tested this and it does work on my DInc.

    the power button is select in hboot, so you can still load the pb21img.zip if you are willing to go that route

    call verizon and ask for a replacement.

    reason: the optical joystick stopped working for NO REASON.


    ps: unroot and s-on before sending it back.

    I must just have a more incredible incredible than you. Cuz the power button does work for me in clockwork. And their documentation says it should to:

    Thats correct. The power button acts as the "back" button until your back to the main recovery screen and then it toggles the screen on/off. It has been that way for some time now.
