Experimental WP7 homebrew: Samsung TouchWake

WindowsPhoneHacker has been at it again.  Their latest discovery is that on the Samsung Focus the capacitive buttons can be forced to remain active even when the device is suspended, meaning that the device can easily be woken just by touching the buttons.

WindowsPhoneHacker packaged up the hack in a XAP, which only needs a developer unlocked device to install.

Jaxbot notes that the hack is not as cool as it initially appears, with the phone being woken during phone calls and in the pocket constantly, but if it is still your thing it can be downloaded at WPH here.
