Default [APP/MOD] TouchControl / PGM (Galaxy Nexus)

**** ROOT NEEDED ****

I proudly announce - TouchControl V2





________________ DESCRIPTION
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

________________ SCREENSHOTS



________________ FAQ
  1. 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.

  2. 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)

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. if I want to marry you where can I find you?
    Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.

REALTIME MODULE REQUESTS STATS PER KERNEL ____________
Quick info about stats - it shows how much requests I'm getting for each kernel. So even if there is no module for that kernel it will be accounted as request. Also only one request per user per day is accounted. These stats are from last 7 days.

Per-Device stats


Galaxy Nexus


Long story:
When you press download at the module loader prompt I am actually getting info about your kernel. This is added to the stats if haven't requested during last 24 hours.

Sweet app. Franco 189 does not support it though. Will have to find a kernel that does.

Wow, please edit your post to not include my complete post :) And thanks. I'm using faux123's kernel as my base.

This will NOT add additional battery drain when the screen is not touched. When you touch the screen there's a bit of processing for that but it's really insignificant when you compare it to a few minutes of screen battery drain. Despite what some people are saying, there is no polling, no thread running. Devices use interrupts, so this mod is totally inactive until you touch the screen (it is "woken up" in that moment). I've this on Evo3D when I had it and I've found no additional battery drain. Here I'm using it for few days and I don't see the difference in battery life.

You're mean.

Anyways. I flashed the default kernel and I have to say that I love you and this app. I would buy it but you need to make more kernels compatible ( I don't know if you can)
