A slightly modified version of LatinIME.apk (default keyboard) from ICS 4.0.3 GSM (AOKP.26).
The only change is an extended set of smilies, a ENTER (carriage return) in SMS/IM keyboard and an underscore key available via symbols key.

To install: put into /system/app/ and change permissions to 0644
Code:
adb remount
adb push LatinIME.apk /system/app/
adb shell chmod 0644 /system/app/LatinIME.apk
You will have to re-select this as default text input method.

To get the return key did you edit the Android:imeOptions to remove the noSend action in compose_message_activity.xml, or did you do something else?

Bump

Having difficult replicating this on a themed keyboard. What you've done though is genius.

{sigh} almost every day i find a new reason tempting me to switch to AOKP, and i think this has finally pushed me off the fence... AOKP with your modded keyboard coming up!

thanks, the tweaked noseless keyboard is exactly what i've been missing. nice work on this.
