We all know that the Atrix has a very annoying problem, where the multitouch will randomly 'mess up' after 15 seconds. This was implemented to stop raindrops from selecting random stuff when it was raining. It was a driver used in the Motorola Defy as it was waterproof and was ported over to the Atrix. However, as the Atrix wasn't waterproof, it created annoying problems, especially when gaming.

Here's a video of the problem:

You can try it yourself, it's very annoying.

But there's finally a fix!

Huge thanks to nok07635 who came up with the tweak!

Simply flash the attached .zip from recovery and voila!

The .zip should work with any ROM's, but hasn't been tested on all ROM's. It works on Neutrino as it's been tested, but I don't see why it shouldn't work on other Blur based ROM's as well.

Enjoy!

I'm sorry, but doesn't seem clear if this is OK for CM7 or if it is just Blur ROMS universal

Well, the OP made the zip for the Neutrino ROM which is CM7 and someone has posted that they got it working on a stock ROM

It should work on ANY ROM, CM7 or Blur. In OP, I just mentioned that it hasn't been tested for Blur ROM's yet, but I would be genuinely surprised if it didn't work.

Both CM7 and Blur ROM's have the same 'touchpad' files, so it should work for both.
