I reported this in the main thread and didn't get a response so I believe this may be a verizon specific issue since most of the current builds are based on the international version. Any insights would be appreciated.
I am running the latest build (7.1.2) and I have found that the built in spell check (red underline on misspelled works) does not work across all apps. It does not work on the sense 7 keyboard or on any other keyboard I have installed (google, swiftkey). It seems to work on gmail and tapatalk but does not work on Google Inbox or EvolutionSMS.
I also rolled back to 6.0.8 (the last Sense 6 version that supported Verizon) and the behavior is the same. I also tried a few other Sense 7 roms (skydragon / adrenaline) and they didn't work either so I think it is a framework issue. When I looked for a rooted stock version of the Verizon 5.01 release (so I could verify that this is due to the international version), I couldn't find one (probably because root has not been achieved on the Verizon release as far as I can see).
I have restored my user apps and data (not system apps) using Titanium Backup and I have also deleted the problem apps and reinstalled from the Play Store and the problem persists.
So I'm looking for a few things if possible.
- Confirmation that this is a problem for others.
- Identification of the files that are used for this spell checking so I can try swapping the ones from the verizon build to see if the problem can be fixed.
- Any other bread crumbs to follow or suggestions.
