For thise users want to install manually
Can achieve Multi-touch by 2 Steps:
| Replacing Kernel:
| -make sure you haven't changed it before, otherwise u have to combine the changes and compile a new one
| -remember, a backup is a MUST
| for firmware 1.1 users
| Use Noogie or other methods, change the uImage with the attached one ( or the combined kernel mentioned below )
| arkusuma teaches us how to change uImage using ADB here
| *Thanks to arkusuma!
| Adding Permission node:
| in "/etc/permissions/required_hardware.xml", add
Sometimes the nook would act like un-responsive when it is in screensaver.
To solve it, try to drag the screen with two fingers.
The reason for this is, a cache is added between hardware input and linux subsystem, if the driver missed one of the "finger up" event before, it would result it leaving a phantom finger touching in your next touch. The screen cannot unlock by 2 fingers. But when you drag the screen with 2 fingers. It will clear all the cache, so as to erase the phantom touching.
It is done by editing the kernel + adding permission node
*Thanks to arkusuma, who improved the code, added a cache for touching data, which prevents the pervious "un-stable" situation from happening
Kernel: just replace zforce.c, then compile
Two main changes on zforce,
first one is process_touch_event ( report touch information ),
second one is zforce_probe, this one just added a few input_set_abs_params ( register for device capability ) http://github.com/arkusuma/nook-touch-multitouch
Permission node: in "/etc/permissions/required_hardware.xml", add
Android Devices - Nook Color running Stock 1.4.2 and CM7 from 16GB SD; Rooted Nook Simple Touch with broken screen, but still runs; Currently Stock Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 with cracked glass. I wonder how long until my NC dies...
Congrats on your feat! Maybe you should do a tutorial on how to install those files, for those poor lame souls like myself who can do simple things like run installer and such, even run a rooter, but need help on anything else.
