I'm developing application that allows you to control tablet with gestures. Root access is needed. Currently it allows to execute following gestures: Back, Home, Show/Hide status bar
Try it out and let me know what you think. What other features or actions would be helpful?

All differences from other devices fixed. Please visit main thread.

This sounds quite awesome. Does this potentially work on all HC tablets, or just the A100 and A500?

This does not work properly. It always says "Root failed" even when I grant it Superuser permissions. The only fully working feature is the "hide status bar" option. This app still seems to have potential though.

Potentially it works on all tablets, I just need a little bit of information. It even works on my SGS2 phone when I build it with decreased SDK requirements.

Could anyone test version (updated) from first post and send me logcat?

Thanks, that explains the problem. I don't recognize multitouch properly on this device. Could you execute
from shell
su -c "getevent"

or from adb that would be
adb shell su -c "getevent"

make a few multitouch and send me output.

Added single touch option. Multitouch gestures not supported on this device at the moment.
Can anyone confirm that singletouch gestures are working on A100?

You could add a gesture to disable the backlight (turn off screen). You could also add gestures to open certain apps (like browser, etc.) and possibly make them configurable.

Good. Still need to investigate where multi touch disappeared.

Could you execute
from shell
su -c "getevent"

or from adb that would be
adb shell su -c "getevent"

make a few multitouch and send me output.
