1. Download and install X1 SoftTouch at the end of this post (there are no settings or anything... just installing the file creates the tweak)
2. SOFT RESET YOUR DEVICE
1. Use a registry editor such as SKTools
2. Navigate to or search for:
(eg search on "pressure" and you'll find both)
3. Edit the values to any VERY VERY high value such as 999999999 (nine 9s)
*** CAUTION: do NOT change either of these fields to anything less than about 2000 because if you go low enough you will make your touchscreen unresponsive, at which point it's tricky to change it back (learned the hard way)
4. Soft reset
1. Make sure you have Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5 installed on your pc/Xperia (thanks tri3dent, gundamboy, MidiAmp); if not, do this:
1a. Install Activesync on your pc.
1b. Connect the device with the pc and sync it.
1c. Download Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5 to your PC (not directly to your Xperia) from http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/d...displaylang=en.
1d. Install the .net CF 3.5 from your pc
1e. Follow the onscreen prompts.
1f. Look at the phone's screen, you will be asked to approve an installation, select yes.
1g. You're done...
2. Download and install Shap's advanced config tool 3.3 (props to Shap):
3. Scroll down to "HTC TouchFLO" (close to the bottom) and expand it
4. Click on "Pressure threshold," then below you will see a drop down menu.
4a. Click on "Custom" until a field appears allowing you to enter a number.
4b. Change "Pressure threshold" to: 999999999 (yes, that's nine 9s)
4c. Make sure you hit enter if you are using a keyboard so that the value gets entered into the field
5. Change "Finger Pressure" to 999999999 (same number) using the same process
*** CAUTION: do NOT change either of these fields to anything less than about 2000, or less than "Very high" in the drop down menu, because if you go low enough you will make your touchscreen unresponsive, at which point it's tricky to change it back (learned the hard way)
6. Click "Done" below in the bar then click "Ok" to reset your device
If you used the recommended "firm" taps when calibrating your screen, the X1 the SoftTouch tweak should lead to:
- substantial improved responsiveness with finger use
- moderate improved responsiveness with stylus use
If you used very light touches when calibrating your screen, the X1 SoftTouch tweak should lead to:
- moderate to minimal improved responsiveness with finger use
- minimal to no improved responsiveness with stylus use
- The tweak works for everything, not just if you have TouchFLO installed
- If you uninstall X1 SoftTouch, your original screen sensitivity settings should return
- I didn't notice much difference in touch responsiveness with registry values over about 1,000,000, but it doesn't seem to hurt to put in extremely high values, which is why I used 999,999,999
