New DROID Incredible Kernel Allows 10-point Multi-touch

Anyone been looking for the ability to have all 10 fingers on their Droid Incredible at the same time?  Your prayers have been answered, thanks to XDA member tchebb who has created a new kernel which unlocks 10-point multi-touch.  He’s been running it for over a month now without any issues and admits that it gets a little wishy-washy above 5 touches, but that all 10 will work.  Fun stuff.

Download can be found at this thread.  Flash the file in recovery just like you would any other ROM.

Via:  XDA

Cheers Byron!

    Do you need to root in order to flash this kernel

    Is there a kernel to help with the multi touch on the OG droid because mine sometimes tweaks out

    Wow, now they need to update the piano app to support this.

  • Csseale

    He didn't make the kernel just came up with the script to add to the customer kernels like invisiblek's and heyitslous kernels. But it is off and on with some phones. Like everything results may vary in the root world….do a nandroid…

    I think a 5 finger unlock for a tablet would be clutch…

    Touch five points with your fingers and drag (or rotate) to unlock…

    Pretty sweet unless you've lost a finger or something :-P

    why?

    either the dev has 3 hands or he sets in on a surface to use 10 fingers on a 3-4″ screen

    again, why?

  • Mmmmmm

    someone needs to make an app with 5 hot chicks, if you know what I mean.

  • Hezzdown

    I don't see much of a point in it on the smartphone perspective but on tablets it will be a must have.

    • Rob_P

      Precisely what I was thinking.

      Piano app. I just wish I could play a whole chord on xPiano.

  • Kit

    Woo! Now DI users can use 10 fingers on multi-touch test applications… and multi-touch test applications only!

    I'm thinking we should be expecting a Ouija Board app any day now…

    nice, but I am waiting for the 11 point multi-touch, so I can use my……as well….

    • Ragman89

      But these go to 11! :) Sorry; couldn't help it

      Tell me though; what would you use as the 11th point? Hmmm, could get interesting

    • EC8CH

      your last name is a perfect match for you comment:

      “I see you schwartz is as big as mine”

  • Ragman89

    And the point of doing this is?

  • Ccav913

    What's the point of having 10 finger multitouch? Are there any gestures that use more than 2 fingers?
