After install, long press an input area to select the new input option.

Roth, Does this build include the standard e-mail app which I can sync with exchange and my contacts with the contacts app shown here as well or does this build only include g-mail and standtard TnT mail appliation which does not let you sync calendar and contacts?

Thanks for the great work!

This isn't a ROM, just an update.zip. What you see in that image is what is copied to /system/app

I made a copy of the TnT Kb + Live WP + Gapps zip, put it in /sdcard and rename it update.zip, turn off the unit and then press power+volume up, but nothing happens -- it does says recovery and I got that triangle with an "!". I'm on stock TnT with adw launcher.

Any suggestions and help are most appreciative!

You need to have clockworkmod recovery to just use the update.zip.

Otherwise you need to grab the /recover/command off of a different update. I think the clockworkmod recovery update.zip comes with it.

Using the stock recovery, it needs to see the command file to work.

I get pretty much the same thing as case-sensitive. Except, after copying the recovery directory from the cwm update.zip to the sdcard root, I get an image of a box with a down arrow and an animated progress bar at the bottom and then the triangle ! after a couple seconds or so.

Any ideas?

Is there a way to uninstall the apps I'm not using? I was gunning just for Calendar and Contacts, which aren't picking up my Gmail accounts, and I'm not using the other apps, so would like to get them away from my OCD. But it's still way cool!
