Pinch to Zoom, Rotation and High Resolution For iGO 8 on HD2

The higher end devices however, such as the HD2 and Touch Pro2, have resolutions that are originally not supported by iGO and according to the program’s developers, only the following resolutions are supported:

320×240 or 240×320, 240×240 or 320×320, VGA (640×480), 240×400, 400×240
The screen rotation also didn’t work properly on the HD2. However, XDA member ultraslan decided to make some modifications to iGO to create a good user experience on the HD2. He did a very good job and also managed to get Pinch to Zoom working.
Hello friends, I got my HD 2 yesterday.
I tried to install iGO 8 (that was previously installed on my HD) to my HD 2.
When I tried to rotate screen (portrait to landscape or viceversa) by using iGO8/Menu/Settings/Device Sett./Screen , I got a clipped screen. Then with a small modify I got my real Screen Size without clipping and now I can pass from landscape to portrait without any clipping. Now I will explain how I did.
The instructions aren’t straight forward and you have to modify some scripts, but it is explained very well in the thread.
Credits to CtrlPDA for the Pinch to Zoom cab which enables pinching for the HD2.
To get the full iGO 8 experience, continue on to the application thread for instructions and downloads!

All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
