Video: Droid Does Multitouch via hack

As you may be aware, the Motorola Droid doesn’t support multitouch functionality, well let’s say it didn’t, but apparently now does via way of a software hack as the guys over at alldroid have managed to port the multitouch web browser from the Motorola Milestone over to the Verizon Wireless Droid.

You will be required to root your Motorola Droid first and then do a nandroid backup to the files you’ll be patching (Browser.apk and Browser.odex) next remount/system to RW (mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system); then delete/system/app/Browser.odex

Next download MTBrowser.zip file, which you can get from here and extract to your computer, once on your computer, adb push libmtwebcore.so /system/lib, then adb push Browser.apk /system/app/Browser.apk.

And apparently that’s all there is to it you should now have full multitouch capabilityies in the web browser. We have a short video showing multitouch browser working on the Droid for your viewing pleasure below courtesy of Redmond pie.
