    its really not hard to flash a ROM - to be honest I'm surprised you opted for the OPO in the first place if you weren't into that kind of thing

    i've always thought of it as a phone for enthusiasts

    Maybe we have a "fix" for the summer. Did anyone try it in a cold environment?? Maybe the problem moved from warm environments to cold environments. It's just a bad touchscreen and it cannot be fixed with a firmware update.

    Seriously..... can anybody offer some guidance to getting this nightly installed?

    I tried diving into it and put CyanDelta on and downloaded the nightly to my phone and attempted to let CyanDelta install and I just got an error about "Error while starting recovery install..."

    just tried what you said and you're right - the problem still exists in this scenario....

    but when would this scenario ever happen in reality?? i can't remember ever having 3 fingers on my screen together let alone while it was sitting flat on a table without me touching it

    Yes maybe Santa Claus is coming next week..man, do not know what´s your problem is. If this didn´t fixed the issue "for you" it´s fine but stop telling the issue isn´t working for all. And for thos 3 fingers on the same axis ...I do not give a s***...for me this fix works now and I can use my phone as it supposed to be.

    That's no help whatsoever. We're asking for help how to flash the nightly and you say 'flash the nightly'...common..

    I don't trust the patch, they try to fix faulty hardware with a firmware update. They don't want to replace hundreds of screens. It's a not working patch. We deserve a full proof touchscreen, if you need three fingers touching or not!!! Maybe you need it in the future. Even a f.. k... g cheap Samsung smartphone can do this.

    Ok, I just installed
    So now you have the same issue in my previous video? :p

    It works fine (and for me, with the new RMA phone) it worked fine in hand, while charging etc. But as soon as it is on a table, pillow, bed... it starts to lose touches after 3 or more.

    Hi, for step 1 and 2 you have to root your phone. There are a lot of information out there how to do that. Here´s a start: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=oneplus root

    If you never drive backwards with your car it doesn't mean the car is okay when this is broken. If you don't want to hear the truth, stop reading.

    I've noticed the off screen gestures are a LOT more reliable and faster to activate since updating drivers. Never really had an issue before, but definitely feels nicer!

    0-1. Unlock bootloader (you lost all your data).
    0-2. Flash custom recovery.

    Ok, thanks for that bit of clarification. I don't want to root my phone (I have no use for it) and I'd rather not have to reformat my device and loose everything. What are my options for getting this 'fix'?
