If there isn't one, you need the files from /system/usr/keychars or /system/usr/keylayout.
I've always done both, im not sure which file(s) are the ones responsible for fixing the mappings, I just kinda started copying **** over until it worked. Never bothered to track down exactly which it is

The easy way I've been doing is either with adb or the safestrap console to copy from /systemorig to/system. Assuming of course you're flashing safe system and have a rom with proper mappings in nonsafe

I flashed this onto my safe sys and got it running no prob, but then I realized it was late and I was too tired to bother setting all my **** up

However if you all want me to, when I get my computer up and running again il put together a xt860 friendly version of this with the data fix and keyboard mappings corrected, sometime this week

Took the plunge:) up and running on the .906 OTA flawlessly. So glad I did it, my phone runs so much smoother and faster.
I don't see what the big deal is? As long as you use safestrap you've really got nothing to lose.

Great work!
I don't like the battery bar, so I removed it. Is it possible to remove it from the ROM toolbox?

Did you flash the OTA or the ROM? Because the ROM doesn't contain everything the OTA does. Being that you mentioned safestrap, I don't think you flashed the OTA, since it requires stock recovery.

Yes I flashed the .906 OTA through stock recovery, then flashed mavrom 4.0 over it using safestrap.
I was just wondering why everyone's so freaked out about flashing the OTA? I understand there's no way to sbf back in case of disaster, but if you just use safestrap with safe system enabled there's really nothing to lose, and it's totally worth the update in my opinion:)

Battery life is way better, not to mention speed is also faster and smoother, I also noticed the display is alot brighter and clearer.
