I was able to get them back finaly with the fix noted here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2171449
I think the issue may have had to do with wanam and the "keep my extra CSC" features because my features.xml was actually blank, and reportedly wanam messes up your features.xml
So for future refrence, if your keyboard symbols are missing the fix from that link should work, all thanks and credit go to him.
