Blackstone Touchscreen Fully Fixed

Do you have a HTC Blackstone using Android kernels and have problems with your screen? Or typing on the keyboard is very slow? XDA member camro posted about the work of another XDA member OliWe. The developer posted a series of fixes to get your screen working as it should. Fixes like wrong pointer and calibration are fully corrected as well as added the long press for hardware key, all of this installing the new kernel provided.
So, if your Blackstone is having such issues step in and try it, some members already reported back with great results.
