    Can someone help me here ASAP please? My problem is that the bottom of my iphone does not work. Anything at the bottom part (4 shortcut icons, space bars etc.) does not work. I have read some posts that you should adjust the sensitivity. But HOW? and when i view files inside the iPhone its almost empty. Theres no folders like application, var... those things. What should i do? Please and Thanks

    Here ya go...

    If you are experiencing a touchscreen issue you can edit the sensitivity of your touch screen to make your iPhone more responsive. You simply need to replace your general.plist file with a modified version found here: 1.02 Firmware general.plist
    1.1.1 Firmware general.plist
    You will need to overwrite your general.plist located in Applications/preferences.app
    The default sensitivity on the iPhone’s touchscreen is 3.5. You have the option to set it from 0-16, where 0 is the most sensitive. Recently I have had a few issues with my touchscreen and applied this modification and everything is working 10x better.
    This hack may work for the majority of iPhone users, but there may be a few that will need to replace their LCD completely.
    You add the code below to the General.plist:

    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSLinkCell</string>
    <key>label</key>
    <string>Touch</string>
    </dict>

    Yost edited the General.plist file, for people who have a dead strip on the top of the screen, so that the touch option is now on the bottom right under “reset” under pref>general>touch.
    (take out the “.” in the link in “rapid”)
    heres the link to download it if you have a upper dead strip:

    1.0.2 firmware General.plist for low dead strip:
    http://ra.pidshare.com/files/6058341…ral.plist.html
    1.1.1 firmware General.plist for low dead strip:
    http://ra.pidshare.com/files/6510671…ral.plist.html
