    I know the OC 1.5 Kernel for CM7 has the same touchscreen as MIUI and has multitouch but is there a way someone can teach me how to/add more finger inputs? I want to play some multi touch games however it only recognizes two fingers and it really isnt playable that way...

    Well yea he's made a kernel but I don't know if he knows how to mess with the touchscreen driver and add more finger support (no offence to him) if he can then that's cool, but I know that Isaac has messed with and improved the touchscreen driver and said that it would probably be possible to add more finger support just he has no use for it so I would personally try him first...

    Most new phones can only support dual touch points. it is a hardware limitation

    Well Isaac said that it should be possible... The worst thing that could happen is it wouldnt work...

    I would listen to Ziggy. Kernels are the way to get more point multi touches. For example. And who knows? Maybe he would like to put in the extra effort to do it?

    That's part of the kernel. You can't just flash it. Also the triumph doesn't use that driver in that article so unfortunately it doesn't apply to us.

    Probably from another phone that uses the same chip as the MT... it uses kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/bi041p_ts.c But it's easier said than done.
