    Possible solutions to touchscreen problems, but not for the faint of heart

    Someone at XDA has put together three possible boot images to flash. Flashing them requires fastboot (it, adb.exe and supporting DLLs are included in the archive), and as with all things in that vein, read the directions carefully!

    Take that multi-touch! Fix and lock in what works for YOU regardless of updates - xda-developers

    By now folks realize there are different hardware variances for the touchscreen which is one reason why some people have issues and others do not.

    Don't you hate it when you have a workable system, then an update comes along which fixes something, let's say GPS, but then your touchscreen goes down the tubes?

    Never fear, I've put together packages to handle 3 different variances of the touchscreen.

    I was able to make the touchscreen usable again on 3 of 4 test units. The 4th was always bad even out of the box so it might be hopeless for that one.

    I do NOT claim this will fix everyones' touchscreen and that isn't even the goal as it might be an impossible task.

    The goal is to make 70-80% of the problem units usable (again), but even if only 50% become usable this is an improvement over the current situation.
    Dan, see what Google's ineptness is doing to me? I've resorted to scouring XDA!

    Holy miracle fixes, Batman! The first one to try, boot-ts10-lock.img, makes my N7 2013 ultra-touch sensitive like my first-gen! Flashing CleanROM helped, but I was never completely happy until just now.

    The lightest touch from a stylus now registers perfectly. Recently I bought a couple of fancy ones with the conductive fabric tips, and they never did work properly, while light fingertip touches were fine.

    Sometimes hanging out on the other side can be educational.
    Glad it worked. Keep the other files handy, though.
    After a while it might change....

    I've been watching that thread for a while, but hadn't come to any conclusion as of yet.
    Wanted to wait before posting here.

    I've been so unhappy since 24 hours ago that I dove right into the waters, as shark-infested as XDA may be.
