Now I have to drag about 3mm before it even registers, then it jolts to catch up.
In many games this is a right pain in the rear - angry birds is an obvious one where ultra fine control is impossible because of it - I had that control before updating!
Surely its a simple setting, but I can't find a single reference anywhere to this problem.
Any ideas other than rooting?
I assume I can't downgrade back to 2.3 ?
Which version of ICS do you have? If 4.0.3, I would recommend updating to 4.0.4. Also, after updating, a factory reset is usually
needed to clear up little bugs. If you want to go back to Gingerbread, it isn't hard to do. Follow this guide
You can also try this first and see if it helps:
Power off your phone. Hold both volume buttons
and the power button
at the same time. When the phone vibrates, let go of the power button but keep holding both volume buttons
. In a few seconds you should be in the recovery menu. Use volume buttons to move up/down and power button to select. *if power button doesn't work, use your home key*. Go to format cache partition
and select it. Select yes at the next screen. When it is finished select reboot.
