I am the extremely satisfied owner of a gamepad 2. I *LOVE* It, it´s great. It´s a nice tablet and it´s absolutely awesome for gaming. However, I have had it for a year now. After a few hundred hours of use (quake, quake 2, return to castle wolfenstein, streaming neptunia rebirth, hours of dead trigger 1/2, vice city, san andreas, expendables, zombiewood, and I probably forget some), the left stick is starting to come a bit loose. Meaning it´s also starting to drift. Now because I play a lot of JRPGs and platformers on it, native or on nes/snes/ps1 etc. emulators, I usually use the d-pad. Even after thousands of hours of gaming and other usage, despite being locked on highest clockspeed all the time, the buttons and hardware all work great. It´s just the left stick that´s starting to act up a bit, and calibrating it offcourse does not help. Right stick is fine.
I really want to fix this, but seeing as I´ve rooted it and have about 20 root apps running in background from another launcher to performance governor for CPU to system monitor tools to gltools to Aparted, I am sure i do not have warranty anymore. Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this problem with the stick before it becomes larger? I absolutely adore this device and do not want to loose it... or loose my ability to play graphically-updated quake 1 awesomeness on the go~
thanks in advance for any tips!
