    Talking Universal Raindrop Fix!

    We all know that the Atrix has a very annoying problem, where the multitouch will randomly 'mess up' after 15 seconds. This was implemented to stop raindrops from selecting random stuff when it was raining. It was a driver used in the Motorola Defy as it was waterproof and was ported over to the Atrix. However, as the Atrix wasn't waterproof, it created annoying problems, especially when gaming.

    Here's a video of the problem:


    You can try it yourself, it's very annoying.

    But there's finally a fix!

    Huge thanks to nok07635 who came up with the tweak!

    Simply flash the attached .zip from recovery and voila!

    The .zip should work with any ROM's, but hasn't been tested on all ROM's yet. It works on Neutrino as it's been tested, but I don't see why it shouldn't work on other Blur based ROM's as well.

    This was posted by me in XDA, but I thought I should post it here for more awareness.

    Enjoy!

Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    I flashed it, and everything seems fine.......... well better than fine. The raindrop effect is gone, and I now have a 5 Point Multi Touch Atrix. (Tested with Dotty)

    Thanks for the heads up, Notorious!

    Anyone tried this on a stock Atrix to see if it fixes this "feature"?

    Note to those asking about stock phones....you need to have an unlocked boot loader and RomRacer's CWM (or similar) in order to flash this hack.
