(Specs below) Can't seem to find any other threads like this, so here goes... My Wildfire now has a glitching touchscreen. As in, it will randomly touch 2-3 phantom/ghost touches anywhere on the screen (including capacitive touch buttons below the LCD) without any predictability at a single moment. It happened immediately after I unlocked/rooted. If I pull my battery and boot into HBOOT where the recovery menus are, the capacitive touch buttons below the screen are perfectly accurate, no glitches, like brand new. Not a very good testing place, but that tells me it's not a hardware issue...right? Sometimes after I load up to the lockscreen, it still has no ghost touches (for 2-3 minutes). But after that, it goes back to glitching. Something else I noticed: the screen also seems to "freeze" (the touch input does not accept touches) for about 1.5 seconds before the spazing-out/glitching/ghost-touching.

Question1: Is the kernel updated when a new ROM is installed? Question2: Does the kernel determine if a device is rooted/unlocked? Question3: Does the kernel handle touchscreen inputs? Question4: Could the kernel have anything to do with this problem?
