How to force iPhone/iPod touch to handle more than 5 touches at the same time?

I would like to develop a multi-touch (up to 8 fingers) application for iPhone/iPod Touch.
But during testing on my 1st gen iPod Touch once I put the 6th finger weird things started to happen.
I don’t get Touch Began for the 6th finger nor Touch Ended/Cancelled for the first 5 fingers.

Do you know of any workaround for this?
Does it behave the same on your iPhones/iPods?
Would it work on G1 on Android?

Thanks

You can’t. If you need that functionality you should file a feature request with Apple, but I suspect it is a hardware limitation that in the screen controller.
