You will find android.hardware.touchscreen.multitouch.distinct.x ml
file, put it on sdcard, copy it using root explorer to System/etc/permissions folder. reboot the device. Now go to google map and see if you can rotate the map using two fingers. This feature works only on Google maps above version 5, so please update to latest Google maps. if you have older version this feature will not work.
Not to mention you need root permission and the system should be mounted as RW as you are pasting file in subdirectory of system.
Just press thanks button

It looks great! Thanks for all the great work you guys are doing!!
One question, does this change the finger gesture used for rotation (like in i9000), or just enables it?
I mean because my i9003 already has rotation enabled by default in maps, but the gesture is different, for some reason it is two horizontal fingers which I find less intuitive.
