Android 2.3 Keyboard on CM6!

Recommended Posts

I have attempted to modify the LatinIME apk found in the gingerbread sdk emulator.

I changed some values to allow it being installed to Android 2.2 (CM6 port by TOM G)

You will need root access and you will need to remove the LatinIME.apk

from /system/app before copying this apk to /system/app. (or you could overwrite it...)

I, personally, used root explorer to replace the apk in /system/app and it is working very well for me

If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then DON'T

PS. You will need to re-enable Android Keyboard under the language and keyboard settings

Hope you enjoy it,

Abdullah

PPS It does not seem to be working for most people. I dont know why it is working fine for me... i might have made an error whilst signing it or so...

anyways @SeraAndroid (http://twitter.com/#!/SeraAndroid) has mad a flashable zip which is supposed to work fine. The zip can be downloaded here:

If Svenska (Sverige) is swedish, then yes it is available. There are many languages available but only some have dictionaries installed. the languages with dictionaries are:

German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Svenska (Sverige) (which i think is Swedish)

But apart from the dictionaries, All the standard languages are available ( in the list anyway)

The update zip works, but the '&' key on the keyboard is messed up. It's showing the XML code '&' on the key...

The Keyboard kept FC'ing on me after boot - I just changed my Input Method (by holding on a text input) to the 2nd android keyboard and it worked. I think there's some remanence of the original keyboard that's screwing things up.

Also, auto complete isn't working for me - it's as if it's not reading my dictionary. Anyone else having this problem?

This work nicely on CM6/1

Is there an hdpi version for nexus one? Also does the English dictionary work on the update.zip?
