So youve tried looking for keyboard skins befor and were excited about the great new look it gave your phone right?

BUT
You were dissapointed to find that it only skinned the very basic onscreen qwerty right?

I know I was.

SO
I did something about it.
If your familiar with the Sharkie rom, you might have noticed that his 5.0 rom featured a full keyboard skin in wich every single keyboard in the phone had been skinned in Dinik's iconic anastasia theme.
That was my first keyboard skin.

But after the fact I had noticed a themeI liked better then the anastasia glass.

The DUSK!

So I colaborated a bit more with sharkie to make this new full keyborad skin.
We decided that a traditional black and white look would be best and I went to work on this Dusk keyboard.

Stock green is just that, a stock green version
Sharkie theme was made to match the sharki roms aqua blue them.
Crimson Red was basicly for my use but I'll share









DISCLAIMER
I did not come up with the original DUSK style graphics, I only used its style for this skin.
This is for WVGA phones running EZImputs v2.1.2012.2024.00 (with arrows)

Leave request and comments
Enjoy

White keyboard keys fix
Ok... if anyone else has an issue of having white text on your keyboards instead of black like its sapouse to, this is what you do.
Follow thees steps exactly.....

First, download the "Black ezinputs.zip" at the bottom of this post.

Extract the folder inside of it and place it somewhere on your storage card.

Using total commander, navagate to that folder and click it.

Now, 'right click' or hold down on the file inside of the folder. (the file name should be 'ezinput.dll') and hit 'Properties'

Uncheck all the boxes under attributes.
(just click on the check mark, and it you have to click it again if it goes gray rather then dissapearing)

Click ok at the botom of your screen.

Now go to your windows directory.
Find the ezinputs.dll in your windows directory and do the same thing.

After hitting ok, rename this file to 'ezinputs2.dll'

Go back to the file on your sdcard and right click it and select 'copy/move'
then on the next window you have 4 choices
copy
move
tree
cancel


Select 'tree', then click on 'windows' (it should be the last item on that list of folders)

After that, it will go back to the window with the 4 choices mensioned above.

Select 'copy'
It might take a min to do this, just wait.

Once its finished there, soft reset.

After its started up, your keys should be black again.
All thats left to do is go back into your windows directory and delete the 'ezinputs2.dll' file.

Reset again just to be safe.
That should take care of it.

This guide was written under the pretence that you have used some other keyboard skin or file that has changed your text to white.
(Otherwise Id say you dont even need to do this as your text should be black if nothing has been tampered with.....)

Congratulations. It's great to see that there's still someone developing for Windows Mobile, this motivated me to port my Android and iOS applications to Windows Mobile
