HI, i want to inform you that my friend OliWe fixed:

.) FIXED: touchscreen calibration (don't forget to remove the old ts_calibrate file from sdcard.
.) FIXED: touchscreen wrong pointer input (2-3cm jumps)
the hole touch screen problem.
.) ADDED: LONG PRESS of hardware key
now you can (ex) use long press of red button and then you can switch off the phone - this is woring also)

for installation:
please download the latest kernel htc-msm-linux @ 20100819_200730 or newer.
latest kernle downloading on:

Install new kernel:
1.) download kernel + extract the .tar.bz2.
then you'll find a module....tar.gz + zImage...
the zImage.... you must rename to zImage and
both files you must copy tho your SDCard. direct to sdcard ("Storage Card").

I can confirm this, just tried it out.
I can type just fine on the keyboard now as opposed to before when it was a nightmare!

Thanks, GREAT job!!

Keep up the good work devs. Sad about the battery and hope there is a fix for this but otherwise loving what you guys are doing and achieving.

Hey Guys,

It's nice to see, that my patches are working for all of you

The last patch filters about 99% of all jumps. Small jumps (a few pixels) are still possible, but they are very rare and you won't even notice them.

Have fun playing with android

Thank you @camro for the intensive testing

Sorry, but I just test it with Android 2.1 on my Blackstone.

And this is not working well, the touch calibration is completely out

What are your options on your startup.txt about touch calib' ?

EDIT: Yeah it is working ! I can check my notification with a shield xD
We have to
- delete the old ts_calibrate file from sdcard
- remove the msmts_calib from the startup.txt (usually msmts_calib=0x395.0x3c9.0x79.0x77 on blackstone)

And I can switch off Android
