    My OG Droid touchscreen finally stopped responding, but I want to see if there is a way to still use it as a gauge display in my car (using Torque).

    The main issue is that I did a reset on it (hoping the issue was software related) and now I am stuck at the "Welcome to Droid - Touch the android to begin" screen which I can't bypass - keep in mind, the touchscreen is not working.

    Any ideas out there? Keep in mind:

    1) Stock setup, no custom recovery installed.
    2) Touchscreen not responding, but keyboard does work.

    Thanks for posting back, and what a novel way to get it working even with a dead touchscreen!

    Sure don't make them like they used to eh?

    Well I got the OG Droid, back in late 2009 I think and it has worked like a champ since then, so almost 3 years of service.

    My goal is to make it a in-car gauge display (using Torque).
