[Q] Hardware keyboard behaves weird after installation of SwiftKey
I didn't post here for a long time, so I hope that this is the correct section to post my problem, if it isn't, I kindly ask a moderator to move it in the correct place, thank you.
Also I wanna thank all that users here who develop custom ROMs, you are doing a great job.
Now I would like to explain my problem:
I ran an HTC Desire Z with the stock ROM for almost a year now and decided to upgrade the ROM. A friend helped me to unlock and root the device, he put the Andromadus CM 10.1 build 22 on the phone.
This (and also the hardware keyboard) worked quite fine, until I installed SwiftKey via Amazon Appstore.
Since I installed this app and changed the input method for both on-screen-keyboard and physical keyboard, the hardware keyboard behaves weird and is not fully useable. The layout changed from german QWERTZ to QWERTY (which I actually chose in Swiftkey Settings as it is fine for me), but additionally, the FN Key doesn't work anymore: When I press it, followed by some key, the number or symbol doesn't appear. Instead, nothing happens; additionally, in Skype 220.127.116.11835, the button for sending a chat disappears and can be only brought back by switching to portrait mode.
Unfortunately, neither unchecking SwiftKey from input methods nor uninstalling it solved this problem, which is quite annoying as I cannot type any numbers and many needed special signs.
I checked already these things:
- physical keyboard layout (vision-keypad-ger)
- Has this keyboard file the right content, according to Thread "[GUIDE] Simple way to change physical keyboard keymappings!" --> yes, it has, even Y and Z are not swapped)
So it seems as if SwiftKey changed some other file or setting in the system.
Could anyone please tell me where to search to resolve that issue?
Thank you very much in advance,
PS. I could, of course, backup the phone and reflash it, but I really would like to use SwiftKey as it improved my workflow dramatically even though I only used, use and will use the hardware keyboard...
