    Unhappy Broken screen / touch screen recalibration issue / help needed

    10 days, I broke my adam's screen glass
    (If only I could have had a goliath protection )

    However, aside from a few ugly "scars" (not too visible in the best viewing angle anyway), the Adam (PQi/3G)remained perfectly functional for more then a week.
    But yesterday, I could not input the sim code (touch screen not responsive).
    I could solve this by a simple cache wipe., but unfortunately, I first tried a screen recalibration (from the recovery mode menu).

    And now, maybe because of the cracks on the screen, the touch screen is out of whack
    I cannot input the locking pattern, so I cannot (don't know how to?) do anything, even connect as USB slave to backup the card content ( to try a factory reset for instance).

    Can anyboy help me ?

    Could the glass be changed ?
    Can I undo the touch screen recalibration ?
    Can I at least access to te inner card content without the touch screen ? How ?

    Any help greatly appreciated !

    Best Regards,

    Bernard

    Exactly, Zerofeel. A USB mouse should work just fine, though it would not enable any multitouch-like functionality.

    Thanks to both of you !
    I did not imagine that the mouse was available so early ( but I now realize that pattern unlocking is not early at all in the boot process ).
    I'm now backing up my data, but I the test with Multitouch Visualizer indeed show that touch is not ok beyond the crack
    I can't understand how it was working flowlessly for so long.

    If you or anybody have further advice on how to recalibrate or repair, I just noticed that NI is out of stock of PQi so I'll have to wait before being able to buy another one

    you could take suggestion on whether it would help to reset with a hardware switch inside the tablet .It should set it back to the original factory condition.
    just a hunch.

    Would NI need to replace the entire screen? I thought they need to change only the touch screen portion.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I could backp any important data.
    Data wipe factory reset did not help but as my bakups were up to date, I went to AC 0.2.
    I don't understand how, but the "dead" screen touch area is now smaller and I can make use of my Adam , switching orientation when a widget is in the "dead" corner.
    Thanks.
    (But I'm still eagerly waiting to buy another PQi+3G !)
