It would be clearer. BTW, thanks for your kernel, I do really enjoy my KF.
I completely agree in theory.

The reality is that that some of the links are posted around the internet and people will continue to download the wrong ROM (not knowing there's an update).

So in this case, I tend to over-write the offending file.

Been thinking about touch sensitivity quite a bit today as I've been demoing AOKP 33r2 and 34 to coworkers (who are still too chicken to do this to their Fires).

I've noticed that touching works perfectly if you just barely make contact with the screen, rather than the normal 'push' action that we're used to with touch screens. A quick tap also seems to have the same effect.

I get the most errant scrolling when I try and push like there's an actual button there.

This leads me to believe that one of two things might be going on:

1. The polling interval for the digitizer might be set too fast, and is reading a push multiple times (initial contact, then the wider contact patch of a full-on press).
2. The software that determines whether a touch action is a touch or slide is tuned too sensitive and is reading the wider contact patch as a movement.

These could also be the same thing, just two sides of the same symptom.

I have source for a linux mainline v3.3 Ilitek Touchscreen driver and as soon as things slow down I'm probably going to implement it for 2 reasons:
- The code is more generic and easier to upgrade for the future
- It's an ICS compatible touchscreen driver (where the current is more Gingerbread compatible and we use additional settings to make it work)

Once that's in-place I can work with a group of testers to craft the "perfect" settings for our device. Going to be a bit tho. :/

Last I heard it had been decided the kindle couldn't do more than two touches due to hardware issues so I don't think the drive will help. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong

The difference is between a "driver" and "firmware" -- the touchscreen hardware has firmware which only supplies a two-point touch. The "driver" is merely what interfaces the hardware with the operating system. The driver might interact with the hardware better, but it will not alter its core capability as a new firmware would. AFAIK we don't have access to the touchscreen firmware so at this point it's a solid "no" going forward.

Good point! I didn't thought about that.
