Really>?
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.

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.

    it's already implemented as i said in my thread.
    but it's seems no app using it on CM9

    No, Glove Mode and Floating Touch aren't the same. He said Glove Mode, so, he wants to control all the UI of the phone using gloves, or by hovering. If Floating Touch, it'a like the browser, which uses Floating Touch. And, if using Floating Touch on all of the UI is difficult, use a pencil made using wood (use the back. And it functioning, like a stylus) because the Floating Touch and the touchscreen contact, so if you touched the screen, it may behave incorrectly. And, it's almost impossible to include Glove Mode in CM ROMs, it can't be done without an expert developer/porter. :)
