    Touch Screen
    MD5: 31852140834d22d964b794d04cdb809e

    So I added a fix to the touch screen. I find this highly funny as this is the same fix Whyzor used on the Motorola Triumph LOL. But the movement between screens when browsing through apps no longer sucks :D This should work on all ROM's I would imagine.

    Before install I would backup the your ROM before install but should be fine on HTCCM10.

    Enjoy :D

    by chance would this help on digitizers that get the phantom fingers? i have to keep show touches on in dev options, and if you press too hard in one spot it goes crazy (the dots showing touches) but the issue is very rare on all ics roms for me, it can happen but only a 10th of the time its messed up and on cm10 its almost every other time i turn it on. if i press hard on the bottom left corner on home turn the screen off and turn it back on it sometimes goes away, sometimes i dont have to touch anything (just turn it off an on).

    What happen to the next, next, finish generation? LOL. Well for CM10 it resolved a lot of lag with latency on the moving from screen to screen. Since most Sense Rom's have a Gingerbread feel it may not effect you, and or you don't notice it. As soon as I installed Halo Launcher on Harmonia I noticed the lag from moving horizontally over the vertical move of Sense. So your mileage may vary with this.

    It should work, just make sure your idc file is called atmel-touchscreen.idc it will be located in your ROM


    This is the same location in Harmonia as well. Just can't test every ROM to verify. I would also do a backup as well just to CYA

    Flashed it on Mobsters with no problems. I don't think I can tell any difference right now, but who knows. Thanks for the work g60

    Did it improve performance? Just wondering if it helps on other ROM's

    Edit: posted to quick LOL

    Ha, I accidentally hit submit too soon. Mobsters was already extremely smooth for me so it might just be that I can't notice the improvement. In any case it certainly didn't hurt

    This fix definitely made a difference on CM10. Tested by repeatedly moving my finger quickly left and right in the app menu, starting the next move when the screen stopped where it should. I was able to do this over twice as fast after flashing the zip.

    Evo 3d cm10 or g60's cm10?

    g60 CM10.

    I found a problem that might be related. Since flashing this, sometimes I get a very triumph-like black screen when trying to wake the phone. Nothing but soft key lights will come on, requires a battery pull.

    Hasn't happened since I bumped the min clock up a notch. Note these issues could be unrelated, it's just what I've observed in the short time I've run this rom.

    Interesting haven't seen that yet, I'll keep an eye out for it. Im wondering because I have face unlock enabled if it could be bypassing that issue. Keep me posted.

    Just had it happen a 3rd time. That's been about 3 times in 5 hours, but this time no soft key lights.

    Reflashing, gonna run without the mod to see if it goes away. I'm gonna miss the snappyness.

    EDIT: Any way to enable the forced reboot by holding Power + Vol Down? I know some other ROMs work with this.

    It fixes a bit of lag with the touch screen. Hard to notice until you try the fix since the Evo screen is quite responsive already, but the fix does work.

    On what ROM?

    When you get a black screen when trying to wake up your phone, that normally means your min frequency is too low; try upping your min frequency 1 or 2 notches.
