    This thread is intended to help restore, repair, and develop/mod our tablets. Many threads here involve touchscreen problems. Updating or loading custom roms sometimes require different touchscrren drivers. One way to collect these drivers is to take them out of the system dumps in the Requesting firmware dumps thread. But this requires a lot of work and time downloading and extracting the touchscrren drivers from the dump. Hopefully, this thread will help reduce the work, and serve as an archive for touchscreen drivers as the Requesting firmware dumps thread has done for system dumps.

    So please copy your driver files, identify you model and post a link to the files. These files are usually ft5x_ts.ko and goodix_touch.ko Please post both if you have them.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'll start it off here

    this thread is a great idea! thanks for identifying them. Having the drivers and perhaps making some ready made .zip files to flash from recovery to get the touchscreen drivers would help a lot! any idea on how to extract them? from what dump, boot? bootloader? system?

    You must be rooted. You can find them in the system/vendor/modules directory. look for goodix_touch.ko and ft5x_ts.ko files. Copy both to the sdcard using a file explorer on the tablet.

    This a good thing, but those two drivers are only for 7042 and 8042 other tablets use different drivers.

    is there an adb command we can run to identify currently active drivers, such as wifi, accelerometer, touchscreen, 3d card, etc...?

    Input device configuration files are located by USB vendor, product (and optionally version) id or by input device name.

    The following paths are consulted in order.

    /system/usr/idc/Vendor_XXXX_Product_XXXX_Version_XXXX.idc /system/usr/idc/Vendor_XXXX_Product_XXXX.idc /system/usr/idc/DEVICE_NAME.idc /data/system/devices/idc/Vendor_XXXX_Product_XXXX_Version_XXXX.idc /data/system/devices/idc/Vendor_XXXX_Product_XXXX.idc /data/system/devices/idc/DEVICE_NAME.idc
