Calibrator tool for Beta2 on O2.

17 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I figured some of you may want a tool to calibrate the touchscreen in Android since we all have resistive screens. The build doesn't seem to include such a tool and I've been searching for months trying to find one we could all use. Well, it turns out this lemon of a phone I bought from DX comes with a calibration tool, so I rooted it and ripped the APK.

Hope this helps the majority who are sick of their touchscreens being out of alignment lol :P

Just open the zip file, copy it to your SD card and run it from File Manager!

Cheers,

Nick

Is there a calibrator tool that actually calibrates, and not just tell you to point at some dots on your screen and nothing happens.

It just works for me fine. That's why it's inside beta.

In Winmo, my screen works well, but in android, forget about it. There must be a way to calibrate the screen properly.

Thanks in advance.

Voyteckst, is there a reason my screen is so badly calibrated in android, and seems to work fine in Winmo? When I run calibrate tool, I notice as I move my finger from top of screen to bottom that the red dot follows my finger untill I get near the bottom(about 3/4 down), then the red dot falls behind, so when I reach the bottom the dot is about 8mm from the bottom. This makes my i8000 almost unusable with android. Is this a hardware problem or driver issue? How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance

Edit:

I found these values in data/etc/pointercal:

20348 -207 -26813464 369 -26067 78543672 65536

Have no clue what they mean.

Maybe it's a matter of permissions. Open Dev Tools -> Terminal

Use commands:


su

chmod a+rw /data/etc/pointercal

Use calibrator to calibrate Your screen.
