So browsing on xda and came across this post and thought quite a few would be interested.

Their are already 2 or 3 custom ROMs out that support multitouch so will be trying one out tonight and let you know how it goes.

Has anyone else got multitouch working on their u8150?

also has anyone upgraded to 2.2.1 - is it worth the hassle?

Yep - works fine here too.

Here's is a Wiki for how to flash your u8150:

And here's a link to the FusionIDEOS 1.97 v2 firmware which has multitouch (and a very good CPU underclock to save battery):

Very good firmware mod, IMHO.
