Cool [STICKY][APP][FIX] Touch Screen Calibration App

This is a Calibration app that you can launch from the app drawer instead of the crazy calibration.ini method that has been floating around since day one. This app was originally discovered by BumbleBee. The orignal app was called "moduleap" so if you picked it up while in our IRC chat room then uninstall it and download this.

I have modded the TouchScreen calibration app. It is easier to use now... includes a launcher icon renamed to be easier to understand it's purpose.... removed the ERROR messages etc.
Again uninstall the old moduleap app if you installed it recently.

Make sure you don't touch the screen during recalibration.

THIS WILL WORK ON ANY ROM

Download: http://vegantab.gojimi.com/download/...ecalibrate.apk

As Always Enjoy!

For safety it is recommended you use a butter knife. A steak knife will work but instead of running to your Gtab chicken box, walk carefully with knife pointed away your body. I am not responsible if you fall and poke an eye out.
