This is ONLY for Xperia sola MT27i

Floating Sola App reached 500 downloads....:highfive:


Hello ,

I have created a small app to switch floating off and on.Its still uses reboot to get the work done.I am working on removing requirement of reboot.


Edit:I don't think it is possible i.e without reboot.I hope Sony will do a better implementation of floating touch tech in the ICS.

Cheers.

Floating Sola App



Download:Floating Sola.apk

Requirement:
Rooted.

Thanks to rundgong for some coding help.


Hit Thanks,If you can.......:cool:in this post or any of my posts.



Hi,

I found a solution for enabling floating touch throughout the UI for Xperia Sola.

Here is a video:


From other source..




1.Go to system/etc
2.Delete excluded-input-devices.xml or rename it to something like 1excluded-input-devices.xml.
3.Reboot
4.That's it.:D:D:D

5.If you want to disable it,use the attachment or a have backup,and copy paste to same location.
or rename it to excluded-input-devices.xml..
6.Change permissions to rw-r-r.
7.Reboot



Requirements:
Rooted.

I have created a flashable zip,so during booting you could turn floating on and off.
Install them through recovery.


To turn on floating touch, install floaton.zip through recovery.
To turn off floating touch, install floatoff.zip through recovery.


And,also [Dev]Disabling a input device(airtouch) when keyboard pops up.

and Thanks to ashwin prabhunerurkar for renaming method.


Warnig:Floating touch is difficult to use.Needs practice.

Can you make an App that allows us to do the job without having to go through explorer and delete/move the file?

I have been thinking about it.
Even if a app could delete/move the file,it would still require a reboot,as the input device is included/excluded at booting.

Yeah, rebooting is one problem, but atleast we can cut the deleting procedure :D
Are there any way to disable floating touch only when the keyboard is invoked :-? The exclude.xml file is too simple to edit any thing though.

I haven't wrote a single app in my life.

Reboot.



There are some drawbacks for floating without right implementation.

1.It is difficult to use,takes practice.
2.Sometime when you both float and touch a button/icon,it will take as two different inputs and open it twice.
3.There is keyboard problem.
4.When you put Sola in pant pocket,music might start playing,by lockscreen music widget(only if display isn't off).It happend to me.
5.Unwanted clicks by accidently hovering.

And more.
