    So I work as an Android developer for a major carrier and I've rooted 100's of devices 1000's of times and this is the first time I have ever come across this type of problem.

    My roommate bought a new Sprint Gs6 and wanted the bloatware removed so I found this page for an Odin .tar

    /how-to-root-galaxy-s6-on-android-5-1-1-all-variants/

    I performed all the steps, and after the device restarted, I had root access but the screen was unresponsive (confirmed by 'adb shell su').

    So here is the issue, I have had weird things happen before after changing the recovery. Usually to fix it, I wipe the dalvik and factory reset. So I did that and I still have no luck.

    So now I have an unresponsive phone that is stuck on the startup screen without adb access : /

    So what can I do to fix this? All the buttons seem to work (volume/home/power), but I cant touch the screen at all.

    Also, why would installing a recovery stop the touch screen application?

    Thank you for any and all help
