Custom ROM - Touchscreen not needed

Is there a custom ROM whereby the touchscreen isn't ever used for anything, like it never existed?

How possible might this be to achieve?

Re: Custom ROM - Touchscreen not needed

I think the easiest way to accomplish this is to not touch the screen.

Re: Custom ROM - Touchscreen not needed

There are windows phones that don't have touch screens. I just got the HTC Snap for a girlfriend of mine. She loves it. I think the Snap uses the same CPU etc. as the TP.

Well,

actually MightyROM 5 is the one and only ROM I've found that skips the alignment screen, which is absolutely awesome. He calls it, "Pre-Set Accurate Screen Calibration". The reason I'm looking for this ROM is because my digitizer messed up, so I can't use the touch screen. I ordered another digitizer and will install it when it gets here, but it's going to take 14 days from Hong Kong. Thanks to MightyMike, I can use my phone, if at least in a minimal way, until that time.

While I'm at it, is there a set of keystrokes I can hit to choose "Yes" or "No" when they appear on the screen & is there a keyboard shortcut to get the "Start" menu to pop up without touching it on the screen? I did it once, but I think it was on 6.1...I believe I held the "Up" button for a bit to execute this, but I can't be sure. Especially since it doesn't work anymore.

Thanks for your replies everyone.
