    The Backflip and Cliq are very similar. The Cliq XT is a bit different I believe, and as mentioned doesn't have a physical keyboard, so it is likely that is the reason it includes multitouch and the Cliq and Backflip do not.

    That's the problem though. With Android, drivers are only part of the equation. To get Multitouch events to function correctly, you have to have a kernel that can properly recognize the udev events, and the Backflip and Cliq's kernel just isn't configured for it. Kernel mods are much more difficult than one would think.

    Well, Motorola has now released the kernel source. We'll see what comes out of it.

    I thought Moto DID release the kernel? I swore the Preclair rom is now using a modified kernel thanks to moto releasing the kernel.

    They have. That should have read "now" instead of "not".

    Just came across this. Hopefully the drivers can be ported to an actual working Backflip ROM.

    I've been looking at what j_rodd has been doing, and the newly published kernel source from Moto, and it does seem possible for the BF to gain MT. It's going to be trial and error for a little while though... I'm looking at compiling maybe a hybrid kernel with a 700MHz OC baked in.
