The shift key on this Bluetooth keyboard doesnt do what its supposed to. I know that Android recognizes it because when i press it i get a small triangle under the cursor when im typing. Ive tried several IMEs and none fix it. Ive even manually mapped the shift key using USB/BT Joy Center. So Android sees it and doesnt use it. What gives. Also, Ive only tested it on this device which is a Toshiba Excite 7C running Android 4.2.2. Im using an iPad keyboard called ZAAGmate. Please any help would be appreciated.

P.S. I do have root permissions so altering the keylayout files is an option.

Are you sure it's just the Shift Key? I have a keyboard that does't recognize any key combinations (like Ctrl+C) which work with a USB keyboard.
My thread is here.

Not sure if this is your problem, but many cheap BT keyboards don't process two simultaneous key presses, like the ones mentioned. You can use Shift Lock to get a capitalized letter and others have a special key for Ctrl and Alt.
