While the majority of reviews for the Google Nexus 4 have been positive, there are a few things that have irked customers. Two of the most common complaints are the lack of 4G LTE on the phone (which you can activate yourself) and the touchscreen's less than stellar responsiveness.
Thankfully, XDA developer trter10 has come up with a solution for this issue by fixing the driver that improves the touch responsiveness of the Nexus 4. All you have to do is download and install an older version of the driver that's better at sensing touch. Here's how to do it.
Note: This fix only works on rooted Android devices.
- First, you'll have to install Busybox, which provides your device with a set of Linux/Unix tools and commands. The fix will not work without it.
- Next, download this zip file.
- Flash it in a custom recovery. If you don't know how to flash, this tutorial should help out.
Once the driver is installed, restart the device. You should now notice a vast improvement in the touchscreen's responsiveness. If for some reason you want to undo this entire process, you can do so by flashing this zip through recovery.
