  • touch interface:

    - toggle between 4 touch modes
     to validate and 
     (scroll but no touch validation) and 
     to only use hardware keys

    - written from scratch full touch code

    - safe full touch : no wrongly validations while scrolling

    - when you set full touch mode, it defaults to optimized settings for menu height, scroll sensitivity and touch accuracy (you still can alter them manually later)

    - adjust menu height in a huge palette

    auto turn off screen
     after user configurable delay

    adjust brightness
     and turn off screen with a gesture action

    - show/hide clock and remaining battery %, even during nandroid operations

    clock and battery stats now effectively refresh
     every 30 seconds and during nandroid operations

    - toggle vibrator on/off on touch

    - toggle key repeat for volume up/down scrolling when maintained pressed

    - key repeat also enabled for virtual buttons

    - set time zone + 30mn offset + DST: correct time can now be set for nandroid backup path and clock

    - capture recovery screen shots with a gesture action

    - one file to save all settings

    - reset to default settings option

    - prompt to restore your settings from a backup when they are wiped by a new ROM install

    - option to auto restore your settings from a backup without a prompt

    - all toggles are applied live, without restart of recovery (except reset of stock CWM background image)

    - toggle menu options are automatically right aligned and menu text left aligned based on device display size

    configurable gesture actions
    : double tap, slide right/left, long press/lift, long press/move, can be associated with any of: show log, change brightness, blank screen, capture screen shot, launch Aroma File Manager

    Note: after scroll, first touch will select only. After one sec of scrolling or on second touch, it will validate immeadiately. This is by design and not a bug. It is there to limit erroneous validation while scrolling

Also- why are the backups made using this only visible in recovery? It's very strange, I can't seem to access them in any file manager.

Maybe this writes backups to a partition in the internal sd we never have access to unless backing up or restoring in recovery. I know on my phone titanium shows 12.87 gig between the system rom and internal storage. Thats over 3 gigs that we can't access with any file explorer.

True, but if it does do this it could really be helpful in the event of accidentally formatting both sd cards in prep for a rom flash. Thats if it does do that.

Twrp kept getting hung on blue screen and wouldnt go into recovery. I should of listened & downloaded philz . Very nice no more slow backups for sure. I used to love twrp but not for this device. Oh yea it was (latest updated one from goo-im also).
