Hey guys i thought i would share a simple fix for the touchscreen problems that people are having. I used to have some problems with my touchscreen on stock, basically sometimes the right side of my touchscreen would be difficult and unresponsive. Im not sure what happened, it seems that after i flashed the Codenamesammy ROM it started to have these problems. I though my first tablet was just faulty so i returned and recieved a new one. I flashed the same rom on it then went back to stock and was having similar problems. I thought to myself that it was a software problem, so here is how i solved it.

Fix
Unlock and root your tablet if have not yet. Flash This using TWRP or CWM.

How it works - Im not entirely sure why this worked even though i was in stock and it had stock drivers. Anyways it replaces the current drivers with the one in the build it has posted.

Credits - I give complete credit to the one who extracted these drivers and posted them.

Thought i might help some of you out with your problems before deciding to RMA it. If this does not work for you then it might be the actual hardware.

Looks like a grounding problem to me, don't think that can be fixed in software.

People shouldn't really have to repair their nexus tablets on their own and run the risk of voiding the warranty. You should all have it under warranty.

For me I would keep returning it until I receive one that no longer has any defects, even if it means returning 10 of em. This way Google would see a high amount of returns and hopefully do something about it.

I don't have the issue, but I'm on franco.Kernel + Team EOS Stable ROM + JRO03R Binaries. I thought I noticed the issue on stock though, but I could be wrong.
