    Screen Rotation problem

    Hello guys,

    I just rooted my atrix and to my horrid I found my screen messed up every time it rotates.

    The situation:

    Everything is fine when I put it into landscape (getting wider), but the whole screen messed up when I switch it back to straight (portrait) again, the screen appears twisted with diagonal lines (I'll say it like some kind of messed up display card).

    System Information:

    45.0.25.ME860. Retail.en.05
    Baseband: N-01.100.00R
    Kernal: 2.6.32.9

    As said I have rooted my phone but rather hesitated about unlocking the bootloader and flash rom as this is not safe for Chinese Atrix. Otherwise I'll try flashing it back to stock rom and probably save the day.

    I have also tried the factory reset and wipe but it's not working. Can someone gimme a hand please?

    LoL, I have tried the compass as well, but it's not.

    I found out it was the Chainfire 3D app, weird is that I have done a wipe before and this problem persist. So, I decided to re-install it again and uninstall the driver... then it soft bricked to the Moto logo

    With nothing to lose I turned to flash my Atrix to 2.2 then it failed due to not enough juice (the process was 100% executed, it failed on the 'USB remueration' or something like that) .....

    Anyway, I still managed to get back to fastboot and choose RSD mode, it just keep saying power too low to flash.

    Am I totally screwed now or I can still try to flash again if I can somehow power up my battery?

    Try plugging it to the wall charger without the battery installed. Once the LED comes on insert the battery back and see if it charges.

    If that fails, charge the battery in another phone

    Err... how can I know if it is charging? More importantly will I be still able to flash it back to 2.2?

    Thanks!

    if you were on gingerbread, flashing a 2.2 froyo sbf WILL HARD BRICK your Atrix, and there is currently no way to recover a hard brick.


    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    Ill have to find the correct sbf for flashing to chinese ATRIX. The warning for not installing custom ROMs to chinese ATRIX refers to unlocking thr bootloader. Using Motorola's rsd lite tool will work as long as there is a correct sbf file (I think there is)..ramble ramble.

    Anyways charging your phone is the first problem as android wont charge in the 'bootloader state'. You can charge the battery in a working ATRIX. Borrow aworking charged battery from ATRIX or DROID x2 (same battery). Go to an AT&T store (or Verizon for DROID x2) to charge in their display.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    Weeee!

    Thank you guys. After charging up my battery from a 7-11 nearby, I managed to flash it back to 2.2 (stock), 2.3.4 and then root.

    Here are my findings:
    - 2.3.4 can be flashed back to 2.2 (I use the same line of stock rom though)
    - don't ever, never play with the Chain 3D app, it cause problem with your screen rotation, even worse when u uninstall it.

    Hope it can help someone as well. Once again, thank you.
