    hey... just a few hours ago the screen started going black.. all I could see is the drop down notification bar and thats it. I had to guess where my icons were on the screen lol. once i click on the app, i can see it.

    so.... if my phone is on screen - off.. i press the home button (bottom middle) or the top power button then i can see my wallpaper and the slide button at the bottom.. soon as I slide to unlock it goes all black.. but if i press in the general area of were the 'internet' icon is , it will open up dolphin browser and I can use it ok. same with phone or handcent. so weird! all I can see is black and the bar across the top. In need of a complete wipe and start fresh? ??haha Im using Xperia X10 by the way 2.1 rooted

    can I use the config menu after I restart the phone? I think you press the back button or something and there is an option to flash the phone through that?? correct?

    If you know how to navigate...or if you have an app like Appbrain loaded, I would suggest installing a different launcher maybe.

    Like if you use LauncherPro, try switching or installing ADW Launcher or vice versa.

    If you can't navigate and do it, then I'm not sure. I hope you have done a backup recently, because flashing it might be the easiest and quickest thing to do.

    If you plan or resetting to default or flashing your phone to it's default, then download SEUS from Sony's website and go through it (it will tell you what to do)

    Or you could download SuperOneClick and root and flash to a generic version if you want to go the more custom route. For that, I would suggest to read a couple other threads here. There have been a ton of how to guides and other people who have gone that route.

    like said above, it must be a launcher failure... id go for launcher pro, it have nice features, if you want to stay like stock, i would suggest the Xperia ARC launcher, it can be found somewhere here in the forums

    i restarted the phone and its fine now.. but I think I will still flash it.. the off/on approach seems a bit too 'band-aid-ish' haha

    Custom ROM's are a whole new world of coolness. You ultimately won't be disapointed.
