    Hey everyone, hopefully this helps a few people!

    This 99% fixes the "quick typing" ghost touches issue

    1. Download and run Terminal emulator

    Then type the following:
    1. su
    2. cd /sys/class/input/input0
    3. cat baseline_test

    Then restart, now when typing fast the screen wont mess up and do ghost touches

    Note: This is not for the pillow grounding issue

    Nope. all the command does is displaying a file. There is no way it is fixing any of the current problems.

    I don't have any issues with the touch sensitivity so I can not confirm.
    But there is literally no way executing a cat on any file does something else then displaying that file...

    My bad, just checked. the baseline_test is no "file" its more like a link, and something seems to be executed in the backround upon calling it. Weird, but good find for people with that issue.

    Ok I was too quick... At first it seemed to help.. But now it's the same as before...
    I have rebooted my device directly after the command...

    Edit : did the commands again and it seems that it is better now..
    Maybe reboot was the culprit

    This fix appears to wear off after a while or after a reboot but the good news is that the issue is software related :)

    This l only fix the keyboard and not the multi touch problems which is hardware. And yes it reset's
    after a time\reboot, needs a OTA fix.

    Hi Guys,

    My problem is with the screen getting on without touching. It happens every few hours. Also, this morning when I got up, I couldn't use my phone even when I hadn't turned off the previous night. I had to keep pushing the On button until it got alive again.

    Could anybody advise if I'm doing something wrong with the Awake mode, the screen settings or whatever can be creating this?

    Sorry for the question but I got the phone just two days ago and I'm still getting familiar with it.

    Just in case that it's useful for anybody. It had to be with the connectivity. Whenever the phone was losing the wifi signal, the phone was getting on. Once I did a hard reboot, this has been solved.
