re: the 'adb shell getevent', event8 is the g-sensor so you can ignore that, event5 is the touchscreen.

If you're on mac / linux do 'adb shell getevent|grep event5' and you'll see it's picking up the touchscreen and back and home button contact points, but not the HTC logo.

If we can change that, I don't know, but there's nothing obvious there to say it's going to work.
