[Theme] Default android keyboard theme
Google actually has a
few other themes built-in. You just need
to uncover them with this trick.
You'll need a custom launcher that can
access Android Activities for this to
work, like Apex or Nova—which we
highly recommend downloading
anyway , since they're awesome. Once
you've got one installed, just follow these
1# Long-press on the home screen and
head to Shortcuts > Activities from
the menu that pops up.
2# Choose "Google Keyboard" (or
"Android Keyboard (AOSP)"
depending on your device and
Android version), and head to
"Android Keyboard Debug
Settings." This will create a
shortcut on your home screen.
3# Tap that new shortcut and you'll
get some advanced settings for
your stock keyboard. Choose
"Keyboard Theme" to pick a new
theme for your keybaord.
You can choose from Basic (which is the
pre-Gingerbread theme), Stone,
Gingerbread, and IceCreamSandwich
(the default on ICS and higher), with a
few variations. Pick which one you like,
