    Okay I'm gonna start of by saying that any info needed, just ask and I'll do my best to try and post it.

    So I recently purchased at Galaxy S6, and one of the first things I noticed was the amount of crap ware there was. So like I've always done it the past was I set out to root the phone. Of course though I get the **** end of the stick, I got the one model that doesn't have an established rooting method. So my thought then was to flash a custom kernel to gain root. I used Odin and found a kernel called SpaceX. The flash went just fine (it passed, and the phone rebooted fine), but my problem is the touchscreen is now completely unresponsive. All other buttons including soft keys are working fine, and my computer sees the phone fine too. So it seems its just the touchscreen itself that is not responding.

    So any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
    And again any information needed just ask, and I'll do what I can.

    We tried a repair of the device but it's more then i could fix with Odin and firmware. Seems to be a dead screen.

    I've decided to just cut my losses with this one. I've purchased a new phone and I'm going to do my best to just live with the bloat ware. Thankyou again James for trying fix my idiocy.

    Try this take the Sim card and SD card if it has one. Then hold power and volume down for about a minute. Then let go and press power. Just a last minute thought but it might just work.
