Default Screen isn't working at all CM7 Need answers soon please

Triumph works, installed CM7 from MotorolaTriumphHacks.com and was working fine for about a week. Suddenly, phone reboots, no big deal. Now the screen does not work. PERIOD. Backlit will come on, but it will never ever display anything at all, even if I try to boot into CWM to do a factory reset.

If anyone knows of a way to fix this, that would be great, but I doubt it.

I called Motorola and will be mailing my phone in for repairs. The question I have is whether or not I have to worry about the fact that my phone is rooted. Will they deny me service for having a rooted phone? And if so, is there a way to remove CM7 from my phone without the use of the screen in any capacity whatsoever? Thanks for the help.

Rooting your phone will void your warranty, and often manufacturers will either refuse to fix it or they will charge you for fixing it.

Do you have a backup of your previous ROM (did you take one before you flashed CM7?) You could restore the backup and it would be exactly how it was when you preformed the backup, so the screen might work. If not, you might be able to use your computer to flash a new ROM onto your phone and hopefully fix it, but unfortunately I'm not sure how you do it on a Motorola.

First, if you haven't tried yet, pull the battery and hold the power button in for a few seconds. You might get lucky.
Failing that, can you get into download mode?
Where you see the polling screen?

If your screen truly is gone... I have no other suggestions. Maybe VM will just replace it without even checking anything.

Can you boot into CWM ? Is your screen working while you are in CMW?

First of all download the latest CM7, it says beta but it's very stable.
Then boot in CWM, do full wipe, factory, I would also recommend formatting system (mounts & storage> format /system).
Wipe Dalvik.

flash CM7. You will lose your apps.

if it doesn't work, I would flash stock ROM.

I have a way that might work if you have a sd card reader. Put your sd card reader into computer, put stock rom on the sd card and remember where the rom is at on the list. Then boot into cwm and try to flash the rom blindly, (if you want i can see how many timss you have to push the volume button and stuff to get to where you can flash the stock rom). And you can put stock recovery on easily without seeing what youre doing. They will not fix your phone if its rooted. Im sure this method would work if youre careful.

At the risk of being redundant, for those of you who didn't fully read the OP:

Actually that is a misconception Don't worry if it's rooted

If you really are worried about VM/Motorola support people refusing to fix the phone because it's not stock, I'd give the above method a go. Like ogfrier says, it's not hard for one of us to count the number of button pushes it takes to make the needed selections in CWM & to replace the stock recovery. The trickiest part probably is figuring out where in the file list the zip will show up...

Or, just don't worry about it- there seem to be opinions both ways out there.

I'd recommend deleting everything and placing the stockROM zip at the root of the SD Card, if you go about this method
