Xperia Mini X10 – Dual Touch Achieved
Many of us from the Windows Mobile era are still getting used to the fact that many devices can support multitouch with ease (heck, the ASUS Transformer supports up to 10 points simultaneously). Yet, there are devices where the fight for this capability is still on going. This happens to be the case for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini, or at least it was the case until recently. Thanks to XDA member slade87, the device now enjoys this feature, which opens a world of possibilities for many apps to be used in this device, including Tap Tap Revolution, Fruit Ninja, most Gameloft games, anything that uses pinch-to-zoom, and much more. This fix requires a specific kernel as well as a rooted device to work.
Please follow the guide to learn how to apply the fix. Also, if you would like to leave some feedback for the dev, that would be great!
Thank does not just go to me but also to doixanh!! Please make sure to give him a thumbs up as well!!
We have managed to unload the kernel driver and patched a modded dual touch driver which can now be loaded.

This year, cardboard returned...
