I consider UK 3.4.2-117 the best rom so far. However the haptic feedback missing was killing me so I started digging. Long story short, by a mistake I found that the responsible file for this was framework-res.apk. So I decompiled with apkmanager 4.9 and compared with the TMO file. I found some differences in res\values\arrays.xml with suggestive names: "VibePattern".

Solution: use the file attached and put it to the root of ramework-res.apk

The reason for not providing the whole file "ramework-res.apk" is because I made interface modifications to mine (black status bar and so on...)

Please let me know if this worked for you!

Update: Seems there is no problem on odexed roms either so install with confidence. Do not use ApkManager to recompile. Simply replace the file inside the apk with winrar or 7zip. If you are on stock rom MadStu has prepared a nandroid zip for you. Read further.

THANKS! it revived the feedback including the multikeyboards. EXCELLENT.

Same problem here, anyone knows what I can do?

Presumably you could make an APK that does the opposite? I'm trying to turn haptic feedback off on my wife's Defy. I'd flash the UK 3.4.2 rom, but I'm concerned about breaking downgrading on a phone that needs to be stable (ie, if the Froyo rom has issues, she's stuck with it).

The same happens to me. Is there any way to get back the camrecorder app? Maybe a flashable .zip file through recovery mode?

First of all thank you guys for finding and sharing the fix for the haptic feedback!

I want to use the theme from this site:
However when I do, I loose the haptic feedback again.
I tried to re-apply your ".zip" files, but then loose the theme again.

Here comes the request: could someone make the haptic feedback as a standalone zip file, so it can be flashed on "themed ROMs"? (or alternatively some further "how to" to use the 7zip file, I must say I struggle to understand the framework-res.apk method...)

Thanks and sorry for my basic problem...
