Default Can't find GoKeyboard.apk anywhere on nook

I have browsed my nook's file system for a while now and I can't seem to find anything related to go keyboard. I reinstalled it a few times, and it runs, but to enable it the apk must be in /system/app. Go keyboard tells me to go to settings->language and keyboard, then enable go keyboard, but that doesn't exist.

Please help? The only fix I can find for the broken android keyboard is installing another one, but it just doesn't work.

Different tools may enable settings for IME selection.

If you want to do it manually, you can use the method below.
I don't know what the package is for Go Keyboard, so I list my NullKbd package.

Code:
adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db

sqlite3 settings.db
update secure set value='com.android.inputmethod.latin/.LatinIME:com.temblast.nullkbd/.NullKeyboard' where name='enabled_input_methods';
update secure set value='com.temblast.nullkbd/.NullKeyboard' where name='default_input_method';
.q

adb push settings.db /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db

Thanks!

I checked the package name when it was running, and it was com.jp.gokeyboard. Should I replace null with that?

After installing, you should find the installed .apk under /data/app. Just move that to /system/app and reboot. You should then be able to set it as your default using NookTouch Tools.

I had Go Keyboard installed in this manner, but have since replaced it. Sorry, but I don't recall the full .apk name.

Thanks for your help. I will look around in /data/app for the apk.

Question: What file browser do you use? I can't seem to browse /data with mine.

Root Explorer or ES file manager (in ES in the settings you have to tick to make system rewritable)

You did? It's actually jb. To be exact, com.jb.gokeyboard/.GoKeyboard

Code:
adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db

sqlite3 settings.db
update secure set value='com.android.inputmethod.latin/.LatinIME:com.jb.gokeyboard/.GoKeyboard' where name='enabled_input_methods';
update secure set value='com.jb.gokeyboard/.GoKeyboard' where name='default_input_method';
.q

adb push settings.db /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
