The application is rather simple so far. It shows you lists of the input method you have on your device, and allows you to specify different ones for portrait or landscape orientation.

It will then launch a service that's triggered by orientation's change events, and reset the input method based on your preference.

To do so, the service must run as system. Just copy the application under /system/app/.

Restarting after installation is recommended.

This is a work in progress. Occasionally, the keyboard switching shows lag. I am working on improving the app, so any feedback is appreciated.

could you send me the dump file you get when that occurs.
To get it, go to phone and enter *#9900# .
Then choose copy dump to sdcard on the screen that appears.

Just removed it from /system/app/ and rebooted then re-downloaded and put it back into said directory after that it seams to be working now. this is great so far! let me know if i can give you any logs or info to help you out i think many people would use this app

I'm not sure if I did this right or not because I'm fairly new to playing with my system files but I put KeyboardManager.apk on my sdcard and I mounted the system and sdcard from ClockworkMod, went into cmd, into shell and typed:

mv /sdcard/KeyboardManager.apk /system/app/

unmounted both and rebooted system.

It shows installed in my apps, opens up when I choose it , changes settings but once finished, I go into ChompSMS and it doesn't work.

Did I do this right?

EDIT: by the way, I have a HTC DINC, with SR3.1 using Launcher Pro Plus


EDIT#2: I moved it back to my sdcard and installed using Astro. rebooted. Opened program got a FC. Tried to get the log but *#9900# does nothing. Is there something else I should be doing after I put that in my dialer?

EDIT#3: Replaced .apk that was installed with a new one via adb shell and it didn't FC, but it also didn't work. So now I'm back to square 1.

there should be a dialog telling how to get the log file once it 'force close'.
On my device, it's *#9900#, but it might be different based on the device.

Also, when you move the app to /system/app, change the owner and read/write access property to reflect the other apps in that folder.

after some testing it seems to get stuck on certain modes. like, going from landscape android to portrait swype is fine. but then it will get stuck turning back until i view the "select input" menu but dont actually select it.

like just now i opened handcent in landscape and the correct keyboard came up. i minimized the keyboard, switched to portrait, and then swype came up. i minimized swype and went back to landscape and no keyboard will appear until i press the input box and press input method after which it appears behind the menu
