Re: Status bar/Notification pull down difficult in home screen

What about the difference in the resolution? Is it really noticeable?

The real fix is using a different display resolution...root is required: Resolution Changer (Lugalabs) or Screen Shift (Aravind Sagar) and setting resolution into 600 x 1000 and density 230 (otherwise the screenshot doesn't go)


So, if rooting the phone works, and touchscreen is responsive again, doesn't this mean it is NOT a hardware problem?

 

Cheers

Nobody knows, and no one from Sony has answered yet--oh but they said it's a hardware problem, which I personally think is not right.

LoiunicK, can you confirm that you've done this and it works?

 


Yes, I confirm... I use this resolution with no problems... I think it is a problem with software resolution and an hardware limit
