That's odd. I tested it on M2D04 and didn't have any issues. I'm currently on Dr.Dot's latest and same there.

The .map files seem to be generated based on needs and settings so it's completely possible that some other .map files were generated previously (particularly for the symbol keyboards) in which case you need to delete them as well (although like finaldestiny says, delete the .map files not the .map.bmp files).

Y'all are more than welcome, I'm glad people have a use for these.

Tried it on M2D04 ROM, following Quist09 instructions, replacing CustomIcons, soft reseting etc.....didn't work. Ended up with misplaced icons like jeffrey2000

Then I realized that there were more .map files in the folder to delete, not just the one mentioned in Quist09's instruction. SO i cleared all of those as well (there are about 6 of them), soft-reseted and....boom, it worked B)

So thanks Quist09 for this AWESOME mod, i think you really out did yourself here helping all of us on the forum with this, doing english versions etc. You have my gratitude mate, my phone looks and works great with it. Thanks again!

Btw i'm not sure if deleting all the .map files where necessary, but thats what i did to get it to work. Also there are some files that have .map.bmp DO NOT delete those. Only the ones ENDING in .map. They should have a windows logo file next to them in RescoExplorer. Hope this info helps those having trouble with this mod.


Yup you were right, I just moved all the .map files, replaced the files again (used my own made cab file) and now it seemed to work after a reboot!!! So for people interested... remove your .map files first and then apply this CAB file. The files were taken from Quist09's "EnglishModSamsungKeyboardBetaV4.zip"

So I removed the following files from the Windows folder applied the CAB and just rebooted:
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Landscape.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Portrait.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Portrait.Map.Symbols.map
Samsung_i900.Keypad.Common.Landscape.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Phonepad.Common.Landscape.Map.map

(dun worry , the key and phonepad are still working fine after moving this files...

EXCEPT if you're using the M2D04 ROM with the new keypad skin, in which you'll need to use the files in customicons file Quist09 posted. However those will only affect your Samsung keyboard, the keypad and phonepad will still be in the same 'skin' from M2DO4 ROM, and the Samsung keyboard will be in its default skin. You have been warned B)

Unless of course, jeffrey2000 updates his cab to take that into consideration B)

In which case you'll need the customicon files for the phonepad and the key pad to remove the M2D04 skin altogether.

Hi
Is it possible to make some keys, that works like the "arrows" on a normal keyboard. Would be useful when you want to move some "steps" in a word. Instead of using the backspace to replace some letters.

Well ok I took it into consideration B) and all the files are there for an English portrait and landscape QWERTY keyboard like it shows in the below pictures. Phone and Keypad are unchanged. So in case you have Passoa's M2D04 Rom (like I do) they wil remain black (the "customicons" files which Quist09 posted are included which finaldestiny also mentioned). In case someone still has these files I'll include them in a newer version. But make sure you backup or move the .map files from your windows directory first, see my previous post if you want to know which ones!

Well you still have the "four way Navigation" (hardware) method which does the same thing!

so basically:

1) First backup to computer and remove the following files from the Windows folder on your phone
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Landscape.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Portrait.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Keyboard.Common.Portrait.Map.Symbols.map
Samsung_i900.Keypad.Common.Landscape.Map.map
Samsung_i900.Phonepad.Common.Landscape.Map.map
(key and phonepad still work fine after removing this files)

2) Install the CAB file attached

3) soft reset

VOILA

credit goes to Jeffrey2000 and Quist09 =]

what program are you using to remove those files from the windows directory? I can't remove them, XP wont let me.

edit: tried resco, it wouldn't let me delete any of those files. Tried total commander, it can't see the phone, so I don't know how to navigate to the phones subdirectories. Tried using the default file explorer, and "cut" and "delete" are grayed out, so I can't get rid of them that way either.

You don't actually have to back those files up because they will be automatically regenerated on a softreset if they aren't there. To restore to the standard version, you simply have to copy the files from my RestoreFiles.zip to the Windows directory, delete the existing .map files and softreset.

Hi!

Sorry for everybody I might be a bit offtopic, but i think this topic is the right place for my question.
I would like to change the character sequence on my omnia's phonepad. I used to have nokias for a long time and I prefer a nother sequence. In the phonepad, there are "abc" letters on the first button, but I would like to change the sequence to "aábc" (I don't need the other characters like ä æ....) I want to change for example the danish file.
I've searched in the "Samsung_i900.Phonepad.Discrete.Default.Danish.kdb" file with a hex editor, but I didn't fid the characters, what the omnia is using.

Thanks for your help and sorry for offtopic

I really like the Samsung KeyPad BUT the one thing that keeps me from using it is the lack of a Period (.) on the set of keys. I have not been able to find any easy way to enter a period other than switching to the symbols view - which is too cumbersome. Soooo.

Can one of you "guru's" produce a KeyPad with the Period key added? That would be absolutely phenomenal.
