Angry [Sola][App][Mod][GB]Enabling Floating Touch Completely in Sola -Just for Fun

This is ONLY for Xperia sola MT27i



Floating Sola App reached 500 downloads....


Hello ,

I have created a small app to switch floating off and on.Its still uses reboot to get the work done.I am working on removing requirement of reboot.


Edit:I don't think it is possible i.e without reboot.I hope Sony will do a better implementation of floating touch tech in the ICS.

Cheers.

Floating Sola App



Download:Floating Sola.apk

Requirement:
Rooted.

Thanks to rundgong for some coding help.


Hit Thanks,If you can.......in this post or any of my posts.

Hi,

I found a solution for enabling floating touch throughout the UI for Xperia Sola.

Here is a video:



From other source..





1.Go to system/etc
2.Delete excluded-input-devices.xml or rename it to something like 1excluded-input-devices.xml.
3.Reboot
4.That's it.

5.If you want to disable it,use the attachment or a have backup,and copy paste to same location.
or rename it to excluded-input-devices.xml..
6.Change permissions to rw-r-r.
7.Reboot



Requirements:
Rooted.

I have created a flashable zip,so during booting you could turn floating on and off.
Install them through recovery.


To turn on floating touch, install floaton.zip through recovery.
To turn off floating touch, install floatoff.zip through recovery.


And,also [Dev]Disabling a input device(airtouch) when keyboard pops up.

and Thanks to ashwin prabhunerurkar for renaming method.


Warnig:Floating touch is difficult to use.Needs practice.


Hit Thanks,If you can.......in this post or any of my posts.
