Multitouch Enabled on the Huawei Ideos C8150/U8150

While this device does not exactly have its own forum on XDA, this does not stop it from having at least some development made on it. XDA member tj_style just told us that he has been working on this device and among other things, he was able to get multitouch working on this device. You have to remember that not all devices are prepared to support this feature, and many manufacturers and carriers have a tendency to disable certain things in order to discourage savvy consumers and drive them into more profitable sales.

The dev has posted a video of the multitouch display capability in action and has stated that he will release a rom with this functionality as soon as he is done cleaning the code a bit. Please read through the first few posts to learn about what the dev is doing as he is far from done working on this device. If you have any feedback or if you would like to help the dev, please let him know.

What I will explain on this thread:
– Change path of bootanimation.zip from /cust partition to /system/media/
– Change oemlogo.mbn from /cust partition to /system/media/
– Make your own oemlogo.mbn (splashscreen)
– Multitouch support for U8150 / C8150
– Update link for Official Firmware from Huawei

You can find more information in the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
