Enable Multi-touch on Nexus One

The US version of Nexus One was launched without any support  for multitouch. We had already discussed that it supported it and was just disabled in the software. A modder has made it possible to get multitouch in the web browser just like it happened for Motorola droid.

Here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Root your Nexus One (if not already).

Step 2: Download all the mentioned files for:

http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/nexus/Browser.apk
http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/nexu…od.android.xml
http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/nexu…od.android.jar

Step 3: To add these files, run the following commands:

adb shell stop
adb remount
adb shell rm /system/app/Browser.odex
adb push Browser.apk /system/app
adb push com.cyanogenmod.android.jar /system/framework
adb push com.cyanogenmod.android.xml /system/etc/permissions
adb shell reboot


Step 4: You’re done! Reboot your nexus one, and launch the all new Multitotuch browser.

The video below demonstrates the multitouch on the Nexus one Web browser:

Installing MultiTouch Apps:

You can get other Multi-touch apps from the Android Market. Download Dolphin, a browser that include multitouch gestures (and a lot more cool stuff, like swipe gestures, RSS feed subscriptions and a built-in Twitter client.
For photos, try Multi-Touch for Gallery, which is a full photo gallery replacement, or PicSay, which is a combination gallery/photo editor. All you’ve got to do is search for these apps in the Android Market, install them, and designate them as your default web and photo browsers.
There are other mulitouch apps in the App Market, from games to utilities to simple tech demos. More to come.

    The screen is much like the iPhone too, it's capacitive touch and made of glass, so you will find the sensitivity much the same.
