    I bought an Iphone 3G, 16GB about 2 years ago.
    Everything has gone pretty smooth, no problems at all in way.
    I decided to jail break my Iphone using RedSn0w roughly 2 days ago.
    Everything seemed to working fine.
    but lately ive noticed that my screen has become so severly sensitive it becomes almost impossible to use.
    I dont even have to touch the screen to get a response, if i hover my finger over the screen, i get responses that follow the direction of my finger without contact.
    I also notice the Feeling of static on my finger when hovering.
    trying to make contact with the screen and press digits is manic!
    it'll just activate anything that my whole finger is over.

    anyone had the same problem?
    heard of said problem?
    or fixed it?

    any help required, even that of how to stop cats ******** in my garden?
    I mean seriously, that cat has to be bloody huge, i come out of my flat to see a Giant cat turd staring down at me with its sleeves rolled up!
    Twice now its kicked the crap out of me and robbed my wallet.
    Im getting bored of cancelling my card!

    But Seriously, Any help with sorting out my iphone is appretiated.
    im asuming its the jail break and ive already attempted a rolling restart and re-install, so far no good

    cheers

    It has nothing to do with the JB, sounds like a hardware issue with your screen that's all.

    Never during the day

    The whole situation seems odd.
    Does it happen more during full moon also?:D
    Obviously no overpriced app would fix a hardware fault with the digitizer. You will have to replace the screen that's all.

    Don't feed the trolls.

    A digitizer cannot malfunction to the point where it can pick up touches without being touched. You also can't "feel" static from a piece of glass.

    Sorry dude, just saying what everyone else is thinking. The overpriced app part (does apple even have one over 10 bucks?) just makes you seem like an Apple hater coming here for a reaction.

    Tootles!

    Dustman, Apart from not feeding trolls! the fact that you've somehow made my problem non existant by just pushing it aside as non sense makes me wonder why it takes so bloody long to get help.

    why would i ask for help with my iphone with a problem ive just made up?
    i'd actually like for you to see it for your self!

    i hover my finger over the screen and it reacts!
    so id appretaite not being called a liar

    Also as for the static, its there, it happens..
    ive yet to have it explained!
    so i appretiate it if you took more time in to finding a resolution for me rather than acting the big shot with your false accusations.

    Welcome to the Triboelectric series. If a material is more apt to give up electrons when in contact with another material, it is more positive in the triboelectric series. If a material is more apt to "capture" electrons when in contact with another material, it is more negative in the triboelectric series.

    The following table shows you the triboelectric series for many materials you find around the house. Positive items in the series are at the top, and negative items are at the bottom:

    * Human hands - Very positive
    * Rabbit Fur
    * Glass
    * Human hair
    * Nylon
    * Wool
    * Fur
    * Lead
    * Silk
    * Aluminum
    * Paper
    * Cotton
    * Steel Neutral
    * Wood
    * Amber
    * Hard rubber
    * Nickel, Copper
    * Brass, Silver
    * Gold, Platinum
    * Polyester
    * Styrene - (Styrofoam)
    * Saran Wrap
    * Polyurethane
    * Polyethylene - (like Scotch Tape)
    * Polypropylene
    * Vinyl - (PVC)
    * Silicon
    * Teflon - Very negative

    as you can see, glass is a conductor for static electricity.

    As for applejuiced deciding to report my post? you do this on the basis of one mans false information?
