I'm sure everybody knows by now, but the multi-touch bugs seem to be related to the recovery. In my little bit of free time I have been working on an updated recovery that supports multi touch for all devices.

I am fairly confident that all amoled HTC INCREDIBLES are able to get either 3 or 5 point multi touch, but it seems that there still may be issues with some (or all) SLCD devices, this is why I need many testers. So for those of you who are willing to help out, I need you to follow these instructions:

1) Download http://chad0989.dyndns.org/PB31IMG.zip
2) Place on the root of your SD card.
3) Boot into hboot (vol down and power when turning on)
4) Select yes when it asks if you want to start update.
5) Select no when it asks you if you want to reboot.
6) Choose recovery
7) Flash a KNOWN working multi-touch kernel.

Reboot and use the multi touch test app from the market to see if you have more than 2 touch points.

Report back the following:

1) Are you SLCD?
2) Yes or no on more than 2 touches
3) What atmel touch device you have - open a terminal and type cat /sys/android_touch/vendor and report what is says.
4) Hardware version

Thanks everyone!

SLCD Only:

Since the one above still seems to not be working for you guys, heres another try at it:
http://chad0989.dyndns.org/PB31IMG-test2.zip - Don't forget to rename it to PB31IMG.zip and place on the root of the SD.

Also has anyone with an SLCD ever had multitouch an any time? What were the conditions that you had it?

Awesome, I'll give it a shot. I had 10-point multitouch working a while ago on invisiblek-21 and CWM 2.5.05. But when I went to 2.5.1.2 it went back to 2.

1) Yes, SLCD.
2) No, only 2 touches.
3) ATMEL_x0080_x0016

Just to be sure, I downgraded to clockworkmod recovery 2.5.0.5 and flashed invisiblek's #21 kernel again and got 10 touch points. And if it matters, I'm doing this test on CM 6.1 Stable.

It has to do with obviously something with being removed from the recovery but having a specific recovery doesn't magically make 3,5, or 10 multitouch work when u install 2.5.0.5
It's when u flash the kernel within the recovery. I used 2.5.0.5 to flash kernels, and the rest is left up to psfmod for.my inc. I've set up Rom manager to think 2.5.0.5 is actually 2.5.1.1, and set up psfmod as 2.5.1.2 so that I can switch easy without troubles

    Hi there

    1. AMOLED
    2. 10 touches
    3. Amtel x0080_x0016
    4. 0002

    Kernel: Lou's #7
    Rom: Incredibly Re-engineered 2.10

    P.S. Is there any way that you can implement the smooth scrolling in your modified recovery? Thanks!

    After smooth scrolling was implemented into a recovery I believe the multitouch hacks stopped working

    Don't flame me for asking this; It's simply a question. What are the practical applications for having more than 2 or even 5 touch points? Are there applications that require or can use more than two (besides the test app)? I can think this would come in handy typing on a full size tablet, by how does it benefit our phone?
