Enable 2 finger rotation in GMaps 5
You may have noticed that GMaps 5 doesn't rotate with the 2 finger method shown in the youtube promo clip. The following solution appears to work for any device - I confirmed this worked on my u8800 x5 today.
Albeit a fairly benign change, make sure you have a /system backup you can restore if needed - would be a shame to lose your touchscreen
Using Root Explorer or command line
Replace (yes that means remove this file and exchange with another)
with xml extracted from attached zip.
adb shell chmod 644 /system/etc/permissions/android.hardware.touchscreen.multitouch.distinct.x ml
(rw-r--r-- if you do it via root explorer gui)
Voila... gmaps is a lot more fun
just google "android.hardware.touchscreen.multitouch.disti nct"
if you want to feel more comfortable
