    This froyofusion rom doesn't have an app to re-calibrate. Any idea what the best approach to force a screen recalibration would be? Also is there any app to change the sensitivity so us poor "resistive" users can get better results??

    To my knowledge, there is nothing to be done as far as adjusting the sensitivity of the resistive screen. Several folks have tried it using ports from the s7 slim and it messed up their tablets. I have not seen a screen recalibrate util out there for the s7 but tri-zet or joenellan would be the best people to ask.

    to force screen recalibration (resistive touch screen):

    use root explorer (or similar program with root access), delete this file:

    /data/data/com.android.settings/files/pointercal

    reboot tablet and you will be ask to calibrate touchscreen

    for sensistivity, i guess it can be tweak by editing file ts.conf but i never try it.

    there is no calibration for capacitive touch screen.

    did you try to update with froyo firmware?

    yes I just success with froyo upgrade and now my ideos running with Froyo, but the touchscreen still problem.
    I just found that the touch position for Program list on upper right side is moving to upper left side, so when I'm touching on that position (upper left side) the program list is appear.
    all button are working properly, then I'm trying to access the hidden menu again using Froyo and trying to do the touchscreen upgrade again and the result is "the touchscreen firmware not supported"

    :(

    thank you in advance for your support given.

    so the touchscreen firmware is not part of the ROM. never knew any methode to flash touchscreen firmware only.
    i am afraid you have to go to service center but i think your 105 is not covered by warranty right?


    edit:
    when you did the Capacitive Touchscreen firmware Upgrade for the first time, is your device connected to internet?
    if you didn't connected to internet, so the firmware file must be in the ROM already.
    you can try to flash with correct Eclair ROM for your 105 device original (phillipines/australia) and do touchscreen firmware update again.

    100% right, my 105 is no more covered by waranty.
    and yes, I did the firmware upgrade while the internet is being connected.
    it is good idea to flash with device orginal 105 firmware, could you provide me the link for philipines firmware?, tomorrow I will inform you the result.

    thanks a lot for you kind help.. at least I got something to do
    ^_^

    I was do had the same problem just like you, finnaly i've found the answer, it's SOLVED!!!

    just download the original firmware here :
    Huawei Firmware S7 - MoDaCo

    i did this one :
    http://www.huaweidevice.com/tcpsdownload/downLoadCenter?category=&flay=software&fileName=110721015118.zip&attachmentName=S7-201u%20V100R001C186B015(Indonesia%20XL%20Axiata).zip

    because my device is Indonesian with XL (GSM Operator) bundled

    extract the archive, put "unlmt.cfg" and "UPDATA.APP" in "dload" folder (you must create this folder in your root sd card)
    then insert your sd card, power on, you'll see progress bar, wait untill OK

    done!

    your Huawei Ideos S7 Slim just like first time you bought.

    (thank's to everyone who shared, and internet)
