Missing Fn Space - not solved?!!
Unfortunately, the proposed solution didn't work. I think the issue is with CWS layout (CWS being Cingular/ATT). That layout doesn't have the Fn+Space in it. For example, the Hermes keyboard had a blue written on the Space bar. The tilt doesn't have that. In fact, if you install the original ATT Rom, the Fn+Space combination doesn't work.

The only way I've seen to get Fn-Space back to life is not to use the layout that results from the ATT Keyboard Fix (which enables CWS layout in the Registry). However, if you use the English layouts from non ATT Roms you get Fn-Space at the cost of getting many of the other Fn keys mapped the wrong way... For example, the ! and the @ are swapped, the ; gives you a %, and so on.

Didn't work for me either.
Tried both ways. By manually and with that .cab. Both resulting same problem.

I can use those accented characters, but now I can type only numbers with diamond keyboards. :-o If I change registry back to the original. I can write and everything else works, but those accented in harware keyboard.

Worked for me
I guess the "disable XT9" is the only part needed in case you are anly misssing accents. I changed the registry manually (two keys), soft reset and it worked

With XT9 Enabled I Had:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Layouts\e0010409]
"Ime File"="\windows\eT9Ime.dll"
"Layout Text"="eT9 IME"

With XT9 Disabled I Now Have:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Layouts\e0010409]
"Ime File"="\windows\compime.dll"
"Layout Text"="COMP IME"

This one worked for me thanks.

I may've found another part of my mystery... I was using the stock HTC ROM downloaded from their site set to United States. When the site is set to Europe, the correct one is downloaded.

Final and simple solution
Dear all,

I fiddled around with my old TYTN (Hermes) and none of the solutions found in the net really helped. While it was quite easy to fix the QWERTZ / QWERTY problem on the hardware keyboard (letters Y and Z inverted) the Fn+Space problem was a bit harder to solve. None of the various cab files or other hints really seemed to help.

So here is what I did to finally fix this:

1. copied a sym.0407.txt into the Windows directory using ActiveSync
2. applied the following registry settings:


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout\toggle]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout\Preload]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout\Preload\1]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Layouts]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Layouts\e0010407]
"Layout Text"="COMP IME"
"Ime File"="compime.dll"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Layouts\e0010409]
"Ime File"="compime.dll"
"Layout Text"="COMP IME"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Keyboard Layout]


With these settings I have Y and Z assigned correctly and the Fn+Space working as well. I guess this will not only work on the TYTN (Hermes) but also on the TYTN II (Kaiser).

Kind regards,

Attached are the two files needed (sym.0407.txt and the registry settings file). If somebody could explain me how to make a CAB for them, I will gladly do that, too.
