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?
