Do you want special characters to appear just by hoding down FN and hitting a key of your choice??
Are you too lazy or not badass enough to mess around with your physical keyboard layout yourself???
Well, here is the solution:
I will customize your keyboard layout at your wish!
The only things you need are:
- A rooted HTC G2/Desire Z/Vision
- A root file explorer OR
The only things I need are:
- Your /system/usr/keychars folder
- Your /system/usr/keylayouts folder
- A list of characters that appear when you hold down FN and hit all the 2nd row's character keys one after another from left to right
- Of course your change request
So here is an example of how it might go:
- You think: "Damn, I'm a German and bought a G2 from America but I totally hate holding down the 'A' button to write 'Ä' and the 'Z' button should rather write 'Y' because I'm used to it!!!" (can be applied to any other language)
- You check if you have the things that you need
- You copy the folders that I need to your computer (with the help of root browser or ADB), put them into one keyfiles.zip file and attach it to your post
- You write the characters that appear when holding down FN and hitting the 2nd row's keys into your post e.g.
- You write your change request(s) into your post e.g.
When hitting FN+A I want 'ä' to appear and when hitting SHIFT+FN+A I want 'Ä' to appear
'!' can be moved to SHIFT+.
Furthermore I wish that Z could write 'Y' and vice versa
- You let me do some magic (hex-editing)
- I attach the file(s) that has(have) to be replaced
- You (make a NANDROID backup and) put the files into their respective place
- You tell me if it works
As I wasn't able to test this on many devices it might happen that I am not able to fulfill all of your wishes. If that happens, please don't get angry. I'm sure that we can find another solution for you. If questions come up along the way don't hesitate asking.
Though it is quite unlikely that anything goes wrong I am not responsible for any kind of damage that could happen to you, your phone, your family, your nation and anything else that you think is this modification's fault. You decide to ask me for a favor and you take the risk of it. I am completely willing to help you if there are any problems but don't blame me for them.
