    I have a Droid here that I have recently fixed for a customer. I replaced the screen and battery from water damage. Well, now the Home/Search and Camera buttons will not work. I have done a long internet search and it seems this is a big bug that had been with the Android phones.

    The problem is, the only fix I have seen people with is a Phone reset and then get all the apps back. As it is a customers phone, I would not be able to do all that for them without login information, which I will not ask for, so I am not trying to do the factory reset.

    Was this problem ever figured out, to be able to be fixed other than a reset? I have already tried re-installing Android 2.1, but with no luck. I am in serious need of some help so I can have them pick up the phone later today.

    Thank you very much.
