Thanks DL, for some reason I missed this thread earlier on, and it took me ages to find it now. However, the fix is so easy... I'll be sure to bookmark this thread for next time I download a generic ROM instead of a localized one. Thanks again!

I think there is much easier way of doing this.

Why not use Rootexplorer? just open /system/usr/keyboard-config/keyprint.xml and instead of qwerty you can write the layout file's name that suites your keyboard and save. that's it, no regex..no other stuff. just open file change text and save.

But not all ROMs have keyboard-config dir, some devs thinks that all people in the world have the same layout so they deletes that folder.
If you are one of those who got rom without it and you need to change layout - just take that folder from rom that has that folder (the one which worked for you) put it in system\usr give good permissions (folders have to have the same perm as other folders in that dir. Files have to have the same perms as other files in usr dir. and it will work after reboot.

Im with ICS oficcial 4.1
and the keyboard work only one initial key and then stop working. Weird keyboard.

I wiped everything, reinstalled the rom with the kernel. Changed the keyboard-configs and nothing-

Had someone the same problem ???

Press one key (this one work) and the second stop working !?

Hello,
I got a suprise for all who need to change the Keyboard-layout!!
I wrote an Android App for change the Keyboard-layout with only two clicks!

All credits goes to DoomLord and K4!

I'm not responsible if you brick your device or something else!!
You need Root to using this App!!

It`s only work once and only if you flash a new Rom

If I got time I will work on it!!

Here you can download it!
