"Project Butter" is Google's name for the UI latency enhancements implemented in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Any Android device running Android 4.1 or later will have those enhancements. Remember, though, that software is only part of what makes an interface smooth and 4.1 isn't a cure-all for lag. Slow hardware will result in a slow UI regardless of the OS. ...

Have you tried Google's Quickoffice? It detects numbers (and underlining them), and lets you click the number to open the dialer with that number.

Open your settings menu and go all the way to the bottom, open Developer Options. In the Input section, find the options called Pointer Location, and check it. This is a feature for developers that shows the raw data from the digitizer. Move your fingers around on the screen, and watch what you see, if your finger seems to disappear from the screen, ...

So I've had this same problem for the past month. There is a 1cm or so high deadzone that spans the width of my screen just about lower than the midway point from top to bottom. It is mostly always there, but some (seemingly) random times it goes away and all works well. My troubleshooting led me to this: If it's hardware, it's only because the software ...

The touch-screen part of a touch-screen monitor doesn't work over HDMI, but with a separate USB interface. It requires drivers specific to that monitor. To make it work with the Gooseberry Board under Android you'd have to find or write drivers for that monitor.

I'm not 100% sure about the Nexus 7, but with my Nexus 4, you can hold the Power button for a very long time (Something like 20 seconds) and it will hard-shutdown. This should help facilitate a hard reset and let you get into Fastboot or Recovery mode if you need to.

have the same issues as the first bloggers that posted. I have the Nexus 4 16Gb and in February 2014, I cracked the screen and changed the digitizer. In the process I tore the lithium polymer bag for the battery and subsequently the phone started to have a sweet smell. After 5 days the phone started acting up with these ghost images which was typing the ...

Finally found solution via editing /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db file via sqlite3. Just adb pull that file to your computer, if you use stock recovery you must mount userdata partition manually, in that case see Android ADB Shell Recovery Mounting for hints. Also you can't just pull the file directly but copy it inside adb ...

No. It is not possible to get this information with the Android SDK. You might get this information if you have access to the drivers and the kernel of your device.

Yes. This is almost certainly a hardware problem and the touchscreen may need to be replaced.

If its just data you are concerned about then you don't even need to mirror your phones screen on your computer. You can use a development tool called ADB, this will allow you to simply connect your phone through USB and access the filesystem. There is plenty of documentation online about ADB, but if you need any specifics for what to do let me know in a ...

I have had this issue before when I rooted my galaxy ace it was extremely random and I fixed it by flashing an old stock rom and then using Kies to upgrade to the latest. If this doesn't work it would suggest that your digitizer has gone, or is in the process of going. If you have time remaining on your warranty, and have returned it to stock, you should ...

Try Settings->Developer Options->Show touchscreen touches. Unfortunately, HTC likes to move these settings around between versions so I don't know if it will work for you. Replacing the digitizer is possible on many HTCs, I did it on my EVO 3D. But that's probably what has failed. Condensation will confuse it and make it stop functioning .

If I were you I would try to get control over the device using ADB. From there you can get your files back and root the device if you want. Also as Izzy suggested in the comments, there are several applications for a device with a cracked or unusable screen. Android is Linux based, so Android can do almost anything a Linux based server can do. You can find a ...

Today I was super excited to see That my screen is fully functional. I will continue to charge it like this for few days to see what happens. No problems for about 9 hours so far. ยจ update: 4 days have been ...

I recommend getting Air Swiper with which you can turn on your device just by swiping above the sensor (which is located with your front camera), and you can also turn it off by swiping as well.

The only app I know of that works fine is "Android Bot Maker" (XDA link here) sadly, it can't record the touches, but you can set it manually yourself, by finding out the coordinates by enabling "show pointer location" on the developers category of the OS settings.

I think the reason might be moisture or water inside the panel if that is the case just open the front panel and keep it under the sunlight for a while it might work.

some basic general troubleshooting steps that you can try to get a touchscreen working again. Step 1 More RAM consumption Turn the device off, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on again. This process will clear out any software errors that are causing the touchscreen to malfunction. If the touchscreen still doesn't work, remove the device's ...
