I proudly announce - TouchControl V2
To all who don't know this yet, this is a kernel module with a control application which allows you to perform some gestures that will in turn will execute some action (like simulating power key press or turning volume up).
List of configurable gestures:
- slide - move finger (or fingers) on the screen in some way
- pinch - pinch screen with two or more fingers
- tap - tap the screen with one or more fingers in some place of the screen (or any place)
List of configurable actions:
- press POWER
- press VOLUME UP
- press VOLUME DOWN
- increase BRIGHTNESS
- decrease BRIGHTNESS
- play NEXT SONG
- play PREVIOUS SONG
- press HOME BUTTON
- press BACK BUTTON
- will it work on kernel X
It is made to work on stock kernel. It might work on kernels which are close to stock. I will however try to find a way to make it as compatible as possible. I'm going to assume that you can safely try this mod on your kernel (but don't enable set-on-boot) worst case scenario is a reboot.
- does this consume battery
Short answer - Maybe.
Long answer - this might bring some drain, some users report quite a big battery drain some not, I will address this issue in some time. Check yourself how much an issue it is for you. Also this change from device to device so there is no short answer (look up)
- will it break my touchscreen
Short answer - No
Long answer - Digitizer is not mechanical so it shouldn't break. The same mod works for more then 2 years on my Galaxy Nexus and it never lost a bit of it's responsiveness
- why do I have to pay
Why did you pay for your phone? You did save a few bucks on the phone which was cheap. Now is your chance to make those savings worthy
- if I want to marry you where can I find you?
Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.
THIS IS HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL AND ALWAYS BE - PLEASE USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
________________ HOW TO UPDATE
- Uninstall the app
- Reboot device
