I seem to remember something about event filtering being moved from
kernelspace to userspace. If that is correct, you are running without
any event filtering. The signal from the touchscreen hardware is very
noisy, and software is needed to average it out.
Upgrading the rootfs might be a good idea anyway. I have the last shr
unstable installed in NAND on my freerunner, and the latest shr-core
installed on an sd card. SHR-core is stabilizing quickly and I use it
as my daily phone now. If you have everything working the way you want
it with shr-unstable it might be worth making a backup.
Last winter I wrote myself a script to go from a fresh install to
customized. It installs programs, adds extra kernel modules for some
sensors I added, changes some config files, and downloads then extracts
a backup of my home directory. This makes it a lot less daunting to do
