The issue I’m experiecing is after installing /e/ Q (e-0.16-q-20210424112062-dev-mata.zip) on my PH-1 from stock (January 2020 update), the touch screen does not work. However, if I use a USB mouse I can navigate the GUI, so the device is not frozen.
I have searched sevaral forums including the /e/ OS communinty, Lineage OS, as well as various others that show up during an online search. Nearly every posts I’ve read have suggested to flash back to stock to the December 2019 or January 2020 update, which I’ve done multiple times, but this does not help solve the no touch issue.
I’ve also tried using various different recovery images, such as:
And the various TWRP images which other posts have suggested:
None of these recovery images helped address the NO TOUCH issue either in Recovery Mode or after /e/ OS was flashed. I reverted back to stock each time and used all the recovery images listed above before flashing /e/ OS. Also, in case anyone is wondering I navigated the TWRP menus with a USB mouse as there was no touch.
There were some posts that suggested issuing the following to restore touch after flashing a custom ROM:
- fastboot flash rpm_a rpm.mbn
- fastboot flash rpm_b rpm.mbn
and even flashing the vendor images before flashing a custom ROM:
- fastboot flash vendor_a vendor.img
- fastboot flash vendor_b vendor.img
None of that worked. Additionally, I also tried flashing Lineage OS 17 and 18:
There is NO TOUCH after flashing either Linage or /e/ - how frustrating is that!
The only way to restore touch is to flash back to stock. I’ve also tried flashing the original stock image QP1A.190711.107 which was the initial Q release from Essential (September 2019 Release) from https://essential-images.netlify.app/ and then trying to flash /e/ from there - still no touch!
In every single case, flashing /e/ completes successfully (regardless of recovery image used), but when /e/ loads there is no touch functionality. Formating the data paritions, wiping cache, etc. none of that seems to make a difference. Not evening flashing to boot_a and/or boot_b (or both) makes a difference!
Hoping the community can provide some assistance as I’ve exhuasted every forum & guide found online. Thanks!
