Edit: much easier to use this app from the play store. No root required

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...utmethod.latin

So I got the keyboard from Android L working.

Here is what I did to easily make it work.

Im Not responsible for borked phones. Make a backup first!

This is not my work.

***root required***

Download flashable zip from here

[APP] GOOGLE KEYBOARD FROM ANDROiD L (5.0) *WORKiNG*


Next go to the play store, find Google Keyboard and click uninstall. This will uninstall updates not the entire app.

***for TWRP***

Navigate to system/app find LatinImeGoogle.apk and rename to LatinImeGoogle.bak

Reboot into recovery and flash the zip

Reboot go to settings....language and input...click on the settings for google keyboard scroll down to advanced settings, go to color scheme, choose material. That's it. You now have the new keyboard!

***For manual install ie Rooted w Safestrap***

Extract contents of the zip you downloaded

Go to system/app find LatinImeGoogle.apk and rename to LatinImeGoogle.bak

Then from the file you extracted move the new LatinImeGoogle.apk to system/app and set permissions to rw-r-r

Next from the file you extracted move libjni_latinimegoogle.so to system/lib and set permissions to rw-r-r.

Reboot go to settings....language and input...click on the settings for google keyboard scroll down to advanced settings, go to color scheme, choose material. That's it. You now have the new keyboard
