I've been trying to figure out why any ROM based off of CM9 seems to freeze the keyboard if I leave it open and lock the phone. In example, if I'm texting/emailing someone and I lock the phone while typing, wait 30+ seconds, and unlock the phone to continue the message, the keyboard will not register any letters nor let me delete what I previously typed.

Closing the application or clearing keyboard data fixes the problem until I lock the phone with the keyboard open again.

CM9 nightlies, AOKP, CyberGR, and Slim ICS give me this problem.

They seem to use Android Keyboard version 4.0.1-212031

I decided to try out a MIUI rom, first MIUIEXPERIENCE and now Catalyst. No keyboard problems what so ever in any application.

These roms seem to use Android Keyboard version 4.0.4-255454

Why aren't these roms using the same keyboard and is there a way to switch the keyboards using SDK manager or simple drag and drop?

Have you ever try the other three-party keyboards on the play store?

I think Swiftkey still had the same problem, I'm not quite sure. I'm too the point where I don't have enough patience to flash CM9, install Swiftkey, then come back to MIUI.

Is it possible to open the .zip file of any rom and replace the 4.0.1 keyboard with 4.0.4?
