[Q] SK4G dropping keystrokes randomly

I've been looking around for any mentions of this for a while now, but i only found vague mentions of it a while back. I thought it'll eventually get fixed in one of the custom roms.

I'm starting to think this is an isolated case since no one is mentioning it at all. (or it's me going crazy. i hope not.)

When trying the key test in the recovery, it doesn't seem to drop anything at all, but when booting android, it drops whenever i type fast enough.

Can anyone confirm whether or not their phone drops keys randomly when typing?

I know that the stock ROM did this (KG2, and KJ2), and my install of GOv2 does this, as well.

I'm just waiting for some extra time to get CMv2 installed.

this problem can be fixed from what i've read by using NXD's kernel as well

try flashing nxd's kernal over what you already have it might work

interestingly enough, the Samsung Epic 4G also had dropped keystrokes issues. But this one seems to be a different problem.

On the SK4G, keys are dropped at random when typing fast.

on the E4G, keys are dropped when repeating the same character quickly (eg. hello, according to that post anyway)

well, thanks for the attempt, but it's still the same. I doubt it's hardware-related, since the keytest in recovery isn't dropping keys.
