Description

Hi,

Replicant 6.0 recovery handles the touscreen in at least the following devices:
  • I9305
  • N7100
Behavior:
  • Tapping the screen has no impact
  • Swiping on the screen from top to bottom or bottom to top results in the menu entries being selected as one would expect when using a mouse scroll button.
  • Swiping the screen fomm left to right results in the entry being selected
Rationale:
  • It is way easier to accidentally select some menu entries with this new behavior.
  • The issue is even worse for people not expecting such behavior.
  • Replicant 4.2 recoveries didn't handle touscreen input, so previous replicant 4.2 users would probably not expect such behavior.

Denis.
