Thwart Those Nexus 7 (2013) Multi-Touch Issues

The Nexus 7 (2013) has been out since the late July, and many have enjoyed the device, which features numerous improvements over last year’s model. That said, many users have reported multi-touch issues right out of the box, and Google tried to address the issue back in August with the JSS15Q update. Sadly, this update didn’t fix the issue for all users, and it even brought on new touch issues for some who previously had none.

XDA Recognized Contributor sfhub came up with steps to fix the multi-touch issues for a purported 75% of the Nexus 7 (2013) users.

 Don’t you hate it when you have a workable system, then an update comes along which fixes something, let’s say GPS, but then your touchscreen goes down the tubes?

Never fear, I’ve put together packages to handle 3 different variances of the touchscreen.
I was able to make the touchscreen usable again on 3 of 4 test units.

Since you’re going to be flashing images, you need to unlock the bootloader and root your device first. You must also be comfortable using ABD and fastboot.

To learn more about the process and lock in the working “fix” so that no future update impacts your screen responsiveness in the future, check out the original thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
