Expanding The Limit Of Multitouch Points On The Milestone 2
Motorola Milestone 2 owners might be interested to learn that XDA forum member Liori has posted the news that someone on a Chinese forum has figured out a way to apply the multitouch mod to the Motorola Milestone 2.
The XDA member has translated the instructions from the forum into English for the XDA community. In order to get up to 6 multitouch points on your Android device, you’ll need to download the attachment and unzip the milestone2_more.ko file to the root of your SD card and follow the rest of your instructions.
