Thanks for your response. It's appreciated!!
Okay, maybe I need to explain, I'm still a noob when it comes to rooting phones and Samsung specific knox counter shizzle. I know how to flash a rom on my old HTC, but that's quite it... But I'm willing to learn!!
I already did a search on the forum and found information about the knox counter and towel root and all I need to know to root my device. But to be honest, it scares the sh*t out of me to root my phone, having some kind of unknown (probably very little) risk of braking my expensive device...
My phone is the Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F. Sorry for not mention that in the first place.
Regarding the thread I mentioned. I now do understand the part that whenever I root my phone and replace the .so file in the system/lib folder (on my phone
), it might/should work.
I thought the thread was talking about including the file in the ROM (zip file) you flash (using recovery) whenever you want to "install" that ROM on your phone. I already checked the ROM zip file and saw the so file in the system/lib folder. And since flashing a ROM is not what I'm going to do I thought it wasn't the way to go for me.
Okay, now what I was hoping for:
Is it possible to get (or build??) the LatinIME apk including the correct .so file, in order to install it without the need to root my phone?
Basically like I did with the apk I took from the CM 11 ROM zip file and the google keyboard apk. I just installed those. And the google keyboard has the right decoder in it since the gesture typing works with that one... and I do get the part that the decoder is a google thingy, so it might not be legal to create an apk myself and share it online...? But is building the apk again an option?
And since this keyboard is absolutely brilliant, I figured I wouldn't be the first noob who had this wish... and some other smart guys already build this apk with the right so file in it...
Okay. I hope I cleared up my question a little.
Thank you in advance for the answer!
