This is a Calibration app that you can launch from the app drawer instead of the crazy calibration.ini method that has been floating around since day one. This app was originally discovered by BumbleBee. The orignal app was called "moduleap" so if you picked it up while in our IRC chat room then uninstall it and download this.

I have modded the TouchScreen calibration app. It is easier to use now... includes a launcher icon renamed to be easier to understand it's purpose.... removed the ERROR messages etc.
Again uninstall the old moduleap app if you installed it recently.

Make sure you don't touch the screen during recalibration.

THIS WILL WORK ON ANY ROM

Download: http://vegantab.gojimi.com/download/TouchRecalibrate.apk

As Always Enjoy!

For safety it is recommended you use a butter knife. A steak knife will work but instead of running to your Gtab chicken box, walk carefully with knife pointed away your body. I am not responsible if you fall and poke an eye out. ;)

Hey all. First off thanks to all the developers and everyone that has worked hard on getting all these phones and tablets working better than out of the box.
Secondly I have a g tab running tent lite 4.2.1 will this calibration app work for me? Does tnt need it? I noticed the install said vegan.

Yes it would work but instead of a chicken use a duck... :D

This is much better than the .ini trick. I'm getting much better response from my keyboard now

    what i did was I deleted tourecalibrate.apk and placed an empthy calibration.ini on my sd card via computer an plugged it into phone, it did nothing
    If your screen is not responding to your touches or is very sluggish at responding, then try these simple steps once you have the Superuser and Terminal apps from Market installed. Open the Terminal app and in the window type only the commands in bold (and, don't touch the screen until the '#' prompt returns):
    Code:
    $ [B]su[/B]
    # [B]echo -n 1 > /sys/devices/platform/tegra_touch/calibration; sleep 5[/B]
    Based on my research into this issue, I believe it should work--and if it does report success here please so that I can suggest it to other users. If it does not try the procedures outlined in this thread.

    EDIT: Or, just flash the zip file in the attachment using CWM to re-calibrate the touchscreen. It should work as long as the CWM kernel is one of the stock VS kernels (version 2.6.32.xx), or, a custom one based off of it---like the clemsyn and pershoot kernels.
