[CLOSE THREAD PLEASE][MOD][APP] Floating Touch 1.3.1 (Updated: 2012.10.20)
I've finished this project, and attached the current source. @mods: Please close this thread, thank you.
Feel free to try out the app on different devices, If your phone's files are not autodetected execute the following command
in adb shell or terminal emulator. If it gives back results then try them out, if there are no results I cannot help "porting" it to your device, sorry.
"find /sys -name set_touchscreen"
Hi, I've read the news about the floating touch and the galaxy sl, checked the threads, and guess what it works on our phone too!
I've made an app that can controll our phone's "floatiness", it works well on biohazard v4.
-Added detection and support for Galaxy SL (i9003) and Galaxy SII (i9100 (not i9100G))
based on shriomman
) (it seems like that it does not work on i9100 based on feedback)
-Different results on I9000 (needs further confirmation whether it works or not )
-Added possibility to manually input the path to the files of the touchscreen driver (thanks shriomman
for the idea)
-Added possibility to start service automatically on boot
-Fixed charger connect/disconnect reset by optional bgservice (thanks alireza7991
for finding the issue)
-Made the UI more helpfull
-Pressing MENU button will reset everything (except if you entered some sensitive file in manual mode and overwritten it...it cannot be fixed
) (disable service, set value to 32, delete configuration files and exit the app) (only usable in the main activity of the app) (in case you've set some wrong value)
-Changed app's icon (thanks nishant_713
for the icon)
-Fix for G3 <- managed to test it on my old GT-I5800 running CM7 and it works nice, doesn't even need the bg service as it stays after screenlock without the need of reapply (can't test for long as it now belongs to my father
-It also turned out that by adding a "cat /..../set_write" also removed the need of the bgservice for us(...I keep this feature anyway...maybe someone likes it in the notification area
)... so pressing the button is enough (altough it's saying temporary because I'm lazy to make an update for changing only the button's caption)
-Added support for Galaxy 3 (GT-I5800 / GT-I5801) <-- Please feedback if it's work as I cannot test it. (Probably not working well please use 1.2.1)
-Now supports Jelly Bean!
-reverted minimum to 1 (thus allowing greater freedom
-added option to start/stop a background (in fact foreground to prevent killing) service, thus it can survive the screenlock
-changed minimum value to 7...values under it are not really usable
-app now stores last value setted by it (may differ from the actual value)
-added a filecheck too, and a nice warning message on failure
All it does is "echo 70xx > /sys/class/touch/switch/set_touchscreen" (xx can be set between 01 and 34)
It will reset on each reboot.
-Using styluses like with resistive screens (value 10 and below) (Fun to use pinchzoom with two pencils
) <-- Thanks for domi525
for finding out.
-Use the screen with gloves on <-- Thanks for domi525
for finding out.
-Setting it a low value, and hovering over your screen to avoid smudges (value 8 and below).
Instructions: install the app; set a value (the lower, the floatier); press button to apply it (till next reboot)
WARNING: Value below 7 cause registering of nonexistant touches, or the complete inability to register any touches!! In those case you WILL need to reset it with adb shell using the command "echo 7032 > /sys/class/touch/switch/set_touchscreen" OR reboot your phone (via adb or battery reinsert)
I am not aware of any other side-effects, and take no responsibility for this app at all.
Of course all credits goes to shriomman
for founding this, also check the original thread
. (Sorry guys for not mentioning at the first place, and thank you very much
Special thanks to nishant_713
for making me find out that we also need the cat command
shriomman - Finding the method the app uses; sharing the path for Galaxy SL and SII
loSconosciuto - Finding out the possibilities to tweak the touchscreen
nishant_713 - Galaxy 3 support; the idea to use the cat set_write too; New icon
alireza7991 - Noticing the charger bug
domi525 - Finding out more usage
And everyone who gave feedback and helped to make this app better.
