Let's cut the crap. Seems like somebody on a Chinese forum figured out the way to apply the mod to MM2. I just translate it into English.

1. Download the attachment and unzip milestone2_more.ko to the root of sd
2. mount /system/ r/w
3. copy milestone2_more.ko to /system/lib/modules/
4. open terminal emulator
5. input the following command
su
chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/milestone2_more.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/milestone2_more.ko touch_num=6
(the guy said if you choose a number greater than 6 the system will crash)

now you should get a 6-point-multitouch

It will go away when you reboot, but its not a big deal to use the command again

Just make a init.d script to load it up when the system boots and you won't have to worry about it again..

Just did this, but I think i wrote it wrong. Please correct me

I created a blank file and wrote inside it:

insmod /system/lib/modules/multitouchfix.ko (I replaced the name)

And saved the file as 99multitouchfix inside /system/etc/init.d/

I also fixed permissions for both files

Actually,the patch is developed by korean , the XDA thread is http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1162327

Autoload after reboot: copy install-recovery.sh to /system/etc and set rwxr-xr-x .

If you wanna change the touch point limit , open install-recovery.sh with text editor , change the number that follows "touch_num=". The range is 1~10.

My own test shows more than 6 touch points will NOT lead to system crash , but make it back to 2 points...orz. Since the same patch on D2/D2G/DEFY enable up to 10 points, why
m2 cound not :confused:


Ah, forgot to say , the autoload patch is ported from http://bbs.gfan.com/android-1997547-1-1.html

All works fine, both the milestone2_more.ko and the install recovery, no problem at all, have 4 MT points now :)

    I did this, but didn't work. I had already changed to 6 and now I want to switch to 3, it's the same process?

    Sorry for the bad english

    The process is the same.

    If you want a better solution, install CyanogenMod 7, you can change the multitouch points easily from the config menu.
    Or install MS2Toolbox from here, in its releases folder: http://github.com/KyleTang
