Redmirage. Any chance you could change the title of this topic to something like "Screen calibration app, works on Vega - fixes some screen problems"?

Think more people would benefit from it that way.

Thanks again for this great find.



I changed.

Thanks for your suggestion

Wow..

Since DSG failed to pick up my Vega, which was just going back due to a couple of very small deadspots and more annoyingly a lot of jitter around the 123 and space keys on a keyboard in Landscape, I'll give this a whirl, if it fixes it, I'll hang onto the unit I have (Better the devil you know!)

Has it helped with any tiny deadspots from those that have tried it, or is it just jitter it seems to help?

I had a really annoying dead spot half the width of the screen n the left hand side at the bottom that was about 5mm high. Could. Not click anything at the bottom of the screen on that side, was waiting for DSG to get some shop stock so I could exchange it. Ran the calibration app and its totally fixed it with the added bonus of making my screen over sensitivity problems go away.

I would be very surprised if it doesn't fix your problem. Good luck!

WOW!!!! I was ready to contact pc world to try and arrange a refund/exchange because of the dead spots in the corner. I tried this program twice and i didnt seem to work. Then i took the tablet out of the case gave the screen a good clean and it worked. THANKYOU FOR THIS TABLET SAVING PROGRAM.

Improvement here.

Was a little more excited when I stopped getting double key entries ... till I restarted. ;) Wonder if this needs to load on startup or something?

seems to be working alot better for me as well! maybe this could go into the next update and autostart on fist boot after install? if thats even possible?


Judging by the response on here, this app is something DSG should be including, or at least highly recommending. It would save them a fortune in returns.

I think before DSG can recommend this they might need to sort the spelling in the warning message ;-)

Argh, it only took a few seconds for you guys?!

I started it up about 10 minutes ago and it's still going. =/

Any idea what I should do to ensure that anything I do to cancel the app doesn't mess up my calibration for good?

Edit: It finished as soon as I picked the device up to see what it was doing. Phew.

In the latest ux100 firmware posted elsewhere on the forums the screen calibration app has a nicer, cleaner and better spelt interface ;) Probably does exactly the same thing though...

Has anyone tried this new version and found a difference? Could you post the APK?

I'm not sure I want to 'upgrade' and miss the smile this puts on my face:

Oh well, I suppose I will for better touch screen sensitivity.

Hi all, i really hope this hasnt been asked and ive missed it but how do you install it?
I have downloaded it, i have used iexplorer to locate it, i click on it and it asks me if i want to overwrite a system file then says it wasnt installed.
I have a lot of trouble scrolling when there are things on the screen that can be clicked, like in the marketplace.
again i hope im not just repeating an already asked question

Hi Regmirage
I have just received the new ux100(aka advent vega). And now I would like to setup r8 modaco rom for it.
this is really nice.
But I also think about backup the ux100 default os for further purpose. So I wonder whether it could be or not.
Please let me know if there is the way to do that, thx.
