Hello,

I just got my replacement DNA due to an intermittent data connection. I would lose data connectivity completely and the only way to get it back was to restart the phone. Anyway, the replacement I was given has a couple of wierd things going on. First, it booted up in cryillic, then there was absolutley nothing on any of the home screens except the button that gets you to your apps.

Then I noticed the kernel version is as follows: "3.4.10-ga02d2c6 root@abm018 #1 SMP PREEMPT." Is this normal? I don't recall this from my previous DNA and what makes me nervous is the word "root" in the description. Did I get a rooted replacement DNA? I tried google and got nothing. It just seems that I got a blank image with none of the standard icons, widgets, etc in their normal places and its going to be a PITA to get everything where I need it, not to mention if I ever do a factory reset for any reason and have to strt all over. This thing came straight from the supplier outside of verizon so maybe this is the way verizon gets them from HTC? Any insight would be helpful, and thanks in advnce.

Download the application root checker in the market then run the app it should let you know. Do you have a SuperSu app? What is your software number? Not sure about the kernel just search for it on xda and it didn't get any results. Kinda sounds like it may have been rooted or maybe still is.

I just checked my Kernel version and it's the same one you have. I'm still on my first DNA and it has never been rooted. I would maybe try a factory reset to see if it changes the home screens. Not sure if it will help, but it may.

They match mine. Hope the reset helps. If it boots in a different language you can always change that in settings.
