The part in the middle of the touch pads does work like the touch pads!

When I went to the touch pad test in the service menu when I moved the bit in between the touch pads around and it worked just the way the touch pads did. Could any dev make the middle part be used as a mouse in the browser or in any other app?

There is already a kernel-module that you could switch out to switch the touchpad from being our game touchpad as we know it, and change it over to be a HID mousepad device (two-point touch even). However, it has limited use, and also requires reboots and/or extensive scripting/terminal/adb-shell use to switch them out.

If you are still interested, do a search in the development sub-forum. That is the last place I saw a module for that listed.

Some games use the middle bit as up and down. So using it is possible.
