Hey xda followers!

I have a hardware problem with my Transformer since the beginning and was too lazy to change it by a new one...

My problem is that I use my device with no problem but sometimes I am loosing touch inputs...

If I let the Transformer go into sleep mode alone and unlock it, I have to force lock and unlock again to have good touch responses back...

Then I can have a good session of 30 minutes of use without any problem and then, randomly, touch input precision is lowering, until I can't use it anymore and I must lock and unlock rapidly again...

Very annoying problem for sure...

But today I decided to search through google, forums, xda, to have a beginning of solution to my problem.

And I found THE Touchscreen Booster application.

It's an application that was made for Viewsonic G tablet at the origin. The famous Bumblebee discovered it at first so thanks to him for that. And the thread talking about that is from gojimi. He modified the application to be more easily usable. So thanks to him too!

Being an android application and having titanium backuped all my applications, I thought: why not trying!

So I installed it and launched it... AND... TADAAA! Just incredible. It worked, no problem at all, no force close, no freeze, nothing.

AND: touchscreen inputs are incredibly smoother, sensitivity has been greatly improved, response time between writing letters is better, multi touch is improved... It's just paradise. I don't know if you tried Ipad but the result is that type of sensitivity...

This application can be used by all types of roms and for people who have problems with touchscreen sensitivity or just want a bigger one

Please leave here your feedback, positive or negative, and remember, do it at your own risks, I am not responsible of the potential problems after applying this application.

It worked for me, my Transformer had never been so smooth, so why not yours!

Maybe you will have to launch the application some times, when you feel that sensitivity was better before, or after boot... But you can put the application on your desktop and touch the button FixMe!

Share, enjoy, and say thanks

i am curious if this will have an effect on any of those handwriting apps we know and love.

Do you need to root to use this?

This probably edits something in build.prop and other system files, so yes. I'll confirm this once I try it.

EDIT: Doesn't require root. I feel no difference though...

Well, when you launch it, there is no SuperUser action popup to allow the application so I am not sure that you need to have root access...

And, yes, it has an effect on every touch app (try writing a message before and after applying the apk or try playing angry birds, there is a big difference)

SO i gave this a shot and some aspects do seem smoother to me. None of the handwriting apps i tested were any diff as before the test.

I already had what i felt is a smooth responsive touch screen, but was curious to see if it was going to get any better.

QUESTION: when you run the app it says after hitting the calibration button "Follow the directions exactly"
I hit the button and it says calibrating screen dont touch, but no other directions.
Am i missing something here or is that the extent of the directions...

All in all not sure if it is just a placebo or if it is actually smoother. I suppose others with really bad touch response may see an effect.

No, it really is not a placebo, believe me. It was even more noticeable in my case (read my first post about my hardware problem) but even when my device was ok, it wasn't so smooth as it is right now.

For the instructions, you don't miss anything.

The important thing is "DO NOT TOUCH SCREEN WHEN CALIBRATING" because it could screw up the calibration, and if you do the opposite, the result would be that you wouldn't be able to use the device anymore, because not being able to relaunch calibration (if you have the dock, no problem at all )

That's all
