thank you very much for taking time and help me so much ... it is still not working, but i believe that the kernel version is the current problem.. after rebuilding again, no input shown in getevent, also not the name: "eGalax TouchScreen EXC-300" ...
Can i rebuild Kitkat on a linux kernel with version 3.10 upwards? or the newest 3.10.17 kernel?

I also patched the hid-files by myself, i did the same thing , but not defined the constant in hid-ish.h.. Relating to my VID:PID i write the PhenQ ID's directly as parameters in the hid-core and hid-multitouch .. Rebuilded and still no luck:( .. So i think its relating to the kernel version, why the driver still not works..

I have already contact eGalax, they send me drivers but there is also the hint, "KERNEL VERSION 3.8 upwards" or KERNEL VERSION 2.9 downwards" ... so maybe the panel is not compatible with the linux kernel.

It would be great, if i could rebuild the kernel with same approach on newer kernel version...


It was the best time to make things wrong today and tomorrow (Y)

isn't the HID-Multitouch-Driver already activated in the prebuilded WB All Kitkat 4.4.2?
I'm trying to rebuild the kernel with your instructions. I'm now "making" the kernel again and wanted to swap u-boot.img on boot partition with my new generated u-boot.img .. While i was activating the drivers in the menuconfig, i was wondering why they are already chosen..
I hope i get it done..

What do you mean with the PATCH if it actually not works ? I will report soon!

It does not work.. I'm trying to include drivers for the RockTouch excalibur HiD-Multitouch, Support gave me this eGalax drivers (

I build successfully Android 4.4.2 with your instructions, i also rebuild the kernel with enabled hid-multitouch drivers... Any idea?
@Richard: what do you mean with patching the drivers, if they are not supported?

It was not define which are not terminated with that cases :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
