For all of you having problem with unresponsive touchscreen after installing alternative launcher on your S7 Slim...
I found out that during boot touchscreen is disabled and official Huawei Launcher enables it, so if you install alternative launcher, touchscreen remains disabled after reboot.
First of all, you have to root you S7 Slim (I've done it using following article http://android-dls.com/wiki/index.ph...ck_Boot_Images, just set ro.secure=0 in default.prop and add --base 0x20000000 to mkbootimg command-line). Then, copy file /system/etc/bluetooth_power.sh to your hard disk (adb pull /system/etc/bluetooth_power.sh c:\). Edit that file (c:\bluetooth_power.sh) using Notepad++ and add following lines:

echo 1 > /sys/cap_touchscreen/boot_complete
echo 1 > /sys/cap_touchscreen/state

Then, remount /system partiton read-write (adb remount), and copy that file back (adb push c:\bluetooth_power.sh /system/etc/).
Reboot, and now you can install any launcher you like!

I installed adw launcher ex on my s7 tablet and now my touch screen wont work. I've tried to connect it to my PC to root but my PC isn't seeing the device. I don't think its set on debugging mode. Is there anyway to fix this or is it hopeless.

Edit: nevermind I returned it to best buy.

I've root with gingerbreak and I've root explorer. I'll just edit bluetooth_power.sh with root explorer editing tools and add those code, right?

Wow thanks shisko, it works!
My steps a bit different:
1. Root with gingerbreak.
2. Edit bluetooth_power.sh with root explorer.
3. Add those code. Save and exit.
4. Reboot.
5. Add custom launcher.

Confirmed, working. I installed Zeam straight to portrait view, and no orientation bug anymore. Cheers!
