Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Hi, i saw there are a lot of people out here with the same problem as mine.
How could i get a software or something to increase sensitivity on my iphone v 1.1.4? in order to use that 10% of the screen that currently does not work. would 2.0 version be a solver?
There is an imperfect fix for this. Go to http://limitededitioniphone.com/iphone-touchscreen-fix-increase-sensitivity/ and read what it says. Basically, you have to release the "touch" feature in the "General" setting. In order to do this you have to load a new version of the file, "General.plist". In order to do THAT, you have to be able to access your iphone files over your wireless network. This means you have to install an SSH application on the iphone. First step, download the altered version of General.plist off the link on the site.
Still with me? OK. In order to install applications on your iphone, you have to jailbreak it, as they say. This can be done very easily for 1.1.4 using iLibertyX. You can find it on the internet. Go to http://modmyifone.com/forums/news/86791-ilibertyx-premier-iphone-itouch-jailbreaking-unlocking-activation-os-x.html for example. Run the program after syncing your iphone on itunes. When you run the program it will quit itunes automatically. When you are asked what you want to do, choose ONLY the option "jailbreak." Forget all the others, both under the Standard and the Payloads tabs. After jailbreaking the installer program will be installed on your iphone with its own pretty little icon.
As far as I am concerned, the next step is to install Cydia. This is a very nice interface that replaces the installer and works very well for installing stuff. Follow the very complete instructions by the author at http://www.hackthatphone.com/114/iphone_cydia.html. After you have installed Cydia and Mobil Terminal, as described at the site, go into the list of installable applications and also install "OpenSSH."
Now all you have to do is use Transmit or Cyberduck or whatever FTP program you choose to access the files on your iphone. You will need some basic info about your iphone's network setup. Go into the Settings>General>Network area and touch your wi-fi panel to open the description of your setup. The hit the arrow with the blue circle around it and it will tell you your IP address. Make a note of that number. Let's say you are using Transmit. In the "Server" field put your IP number. In the "User Name" field put the word "root" (no quotes, of course). In the "Password" field put the word "alpine". As a protocol choose SFTP. Then hit the connect button and it should work. It should show you your iphone files on one side, your desktop on the other. Go to Applications>Preferences.app and find the "General.plist" file. Replace it with the one you downloaded.
After that is done, check out your "General" settings and you will find a new entry, called "Touch"! Move the slider all the way over to the right and you will find that all of your icons are now workable!
This is not a perfect fix. You may find some element of erratic behavior here and there, and you might have to tweek the sensitivity of the Touch setting. You might also find that you have to touch a bit lower than the center of the icon in order for it to "take" your touch. Don't ask me why that is.
Hope this all helped!

Hi, I installed the touch fix above and it helped a little bit but later on things got worse and worse, phone crashing, speaker coming on when making call and the touch screen while better was still annoying. I figured out eventually that the whole problem was something to do with the earphone socket as it was worse when earphones were plugged in and so cleaned it out with a needle- finding all kinds of bits of fluff and lint had gathered in the socket- phone now working perfectly so maybe that will work for some of you too- no idea why but it did.
