Disabling iOS elastic body scroll & keep native scrolling working [duplicate]

I am currently working on a single page web app optimized for touch devices, mainly iOS. I've implemented the new iOS native scrolling via -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch; and all works well except that we are still experiencing the apple elastic scroll effect on the whole page body.

This involves the whole page moving off the top/bottom of the viewport when a scroll ends or the body is pushed and really gives away the fact that this is a web app. I have followed various guidelines on how to prevent this and while they do work, they prevent inner scrollable elements from working altogether.

Here's a fiddle to demonstrate what I'm using so far.

Has anyone found a solution that disables body elastic scrolling but lets inner scrollables work?

I've adapted the good solution from Conditionally block scrolling/touchmove event in mobile safari using Dojo:

var initialY = null;
dojo.connect(document, 'ontouchstart', function(e) {
    initialY = e.pageY;
});
dojo.connect(document, 'ontouchend', function(e) {
    initialY = null;
});
dojo.connect(document, 'ontouchcancel', function(e) {
    initialY = null;
});
dojo.connect(document, 'ontouchmove', function(e) {
    if(initialY !== null) {
        if(!dojo.query(e.target).closest('#content')[0]) {
            // The element to be scrolled is not the content node
            e.preventDefault();
            return;
        }

        var direction   = e.pageY - initialY;
        var contentNode = dojo.byId('content');

        if(direction > 0 && contentNode.scrollTop <= 0) {
            // The user is scrolling up, and the element is already scrolled to top
            e.preventDefault();
        } else if(direction < 0 && contentNode.scrollTop >= contentNode.scrollHeight - contentNode.clientHeight) {
            // The user is scrolling down, and the element is already scrolled to bottom
            e.preventDefault();
        }
    }
});

The element to be scrolled is #content in this case.

Maybe iScroll is what you're looking for (if I got your question right)

At the risk of duplicating my post, I try to solve the same issue and so far am only this far:

        $(document).bind("touchmove",function(e){
            e.preventDefault();
        });
        $('.scrollable').bind("touchmove",function(e){
            e.stopPropagation();
        });

This works if you have an overflow element that doesn't cover the whole screen, like in an iPad app for example. but it doesn't work if you have a mobile app and the entire viewport is covered by your overflowed element.

The only thing I could think of is to check the scrollTop() of the $('.scrollable') and then conditionally bind the preventDefault() if it's 0.

After trying, I noticed that the webkit UA reports scrollTop always as 0 when the element is scrolled to the top even when it does the "inside bounce" of the native overflow scroll. So i can't do anything since I'd require a negative scrollTop to set my condition.

Sigh. Frustrating.
