    Menu option keeps popping up and I'm not touching keys since DL09 update 2 days ago.

    Hi All,
    First I want to thank the Rescue Squad for having a section for help. I explained my issue to Mujibar and he directed me this way. I updated my phone initally OTA for DL09. Bluetooth didn't work after that and a bunch of force closes. After that fiasco, I went back to DI01 unrooted the whole bit. I mirrored DL09 debloated and went back to rooted. Now the menu button keeps coming up and my phone is vibrating on it's on. I powered down and powered back on and it booted into safe mode. It was doing the same thing vibrating and the menue button coming up. I powered down and took my battery out and it did the whole thing again. I don't know what to do. I haven't downloaded anything since doing this the day before. Oh and apps close by themselves and when I try to open them they open and close out real quick. HELP HELP HELP HELP.

    I don't know which kernel you are running but I would try to install this kernel. It is one of Adrynalin's newer standard voltage kernels. It is not the latest one that was just posted today, because I have not tried it out. But I have been running the low voltage version of the one linked for several days without any issues.

    This might not fix your issue but will be a good place to start diagnosing. Flash it through clockwork and let us know the results.

    I would try a different kernel like Sele suggested, but if it keeps happening after that this sounds like your capacitive buttons are malfunctioning.

    This is a fairly common problem for the Fascinate. The reason apps close when you open them is because the "back" button keeps detecting a touch. My phone does this, has since the first week I had it, stock and all. Mine isn't nearly as bad as some others have it, but it can be a nuisance. When it happens to me, I lock the phone and wipe down the capacitive buttons. Doesn't usually happen to me more than once a week.

    If it's bad for you and a new kernel doesn't fix it, I would return to stock and get Verizon to replace it.

    Sorry for the double post, the AOSP ROM's browser tends to do that on this forum.

    I too had this problem when I flashed the DL09 kernel, although that was when I used the Stupid Fast one. It never did that prior to the DL09, I have just tried the one Sele posted. So far so good, but I will give it a few days then report back.

    This is interesting as I've never had this problem, but have just recently read about a few Fascinate users that have. I'm wondering if anyone that does have this problem is using a full screen protector or their screen is bare nekkid like mine.... (or has it only been happening with rooted phones mostly?)

    I haven't heard of this happening a lot, but when you are rooted and you are having issues with hardware not working correctly one of the first things to check is the kernel. When you get a mismatched kernel your device can do some really wonky things. So when trying to diagnose a problem, step 1 is always a reboot, step 2 is usually try a new kernel.
