HTC Dream keeps on showing power options screen

I have an HTC Dream cell phone which was working fine till last night. Today morning I woke up to find that the cell phone battery had completely discharged. So, I replaced the battery with an extra one. I powered on the cell phone and I am surprised to find the "power options" screen turn up every few seconds. Pressing any button also makes the "power options" screen turn up. I tried resetting the cell phone to factory settings. I even tried a hard reset but still this problem persists. Any idea how I could solve the problem?Thanks in advance....Read more

But, in order to get to that point, I had to overcome the "No SIM card" screen, and to activate the WiFi c...Read more

htc dream - G1 Misbehaving -- can I (should I?) reinstall donut?

I have an unlocked G1 (b/c I am stuck with an AT&T contract) that recently started to do a lot of weird things all at once. Most notably, it rings but does not show the caller or allow me to pickup. The home key no longer does anything, and when I hold down the power key I see only the "power off" option -- no airline mode or silent mode.I can make calls just fine but this is obviously an issue. I've managed to get root on the phone (via UniversalAndroot) and BusyBox and i've been reading this: http://gailly.net/android/android-tips.html bu...Read more
