The 188.8.131.52 firmware code only shows after the touchscreen controller fails. Before the failure the touchscreen will show normal firmware (184.108.40.206 or similar).
just a question about the touchscreen issues discussed here. Does the issue mostly occur after flashing a new Rom or is it something inherint within certain tabs with the .99 version fw?
Is there any particular Rom that seems to cause this, ie, does a rom actually change the screen fw version i have...I am running vegaics atm with no issues but would like to try Vcream2.1 but am slightly apprehensive in case I mess up the touch controller
So maybe the only pre warning we have is to check our FW version before flashing and as saying goes if it ain't broke...
is there a way to check what version I have from within vegaics, or must I go back to a stock rom?
when I look in >settings > about tablet there is nothing Listed reguarding the firmware
sorry for all the questions but thanx in advance to anyone who can help
The Rom flashing or a particular Rom cant be blamed for this problem. It is caused by an underlying issue with some touchscreens. I believe the touchscreen controller is being cooked by the charging and discharging of the battery and the extra heat caused by custom Roms. They can fail during normal use or after flashing a Rom, It's possible that android's first first boot is sending a Mass calibration or reset command to the touchscreen controller that is prompting the failure but that wont cause a failure unless there is an underlying problem. If a controller fails after flashing a rom then it probably would have failed after flashing any rom or during normal use sooner rather than later.
