[Q] How to install additional IMEs on Moto Backflip (upgraded to 2.3.7)?
I bought a Backflip(ME600) from a company in Taiwan and initally it was on 1.5 so I rooted it and upgraded it to 2.3.7 (with cyangenomod 7.2). Everything seems to be working fine except for the physical keyboard of the ME600. In Taiwan, the keyboard of this device comes with Chnese symbols for entering Traditional Chinese words. After I upgraded the device, I can no longer type Chinese symbols on my phone (and I kind of need them for work).
I unfortunately didn't make a backup of the 1.5 stock (because I'm an idiot), so I can't go back to 1.5 at this point.
I've checked around the internet, and it appears that I have to install a file named "guobiime.apk" to the system/apps folder, and a "libgb_im.so" file to system/lib (this is the moto input file for the Chinese symbols). I've tried moving the files manually to their respective folders, but once they get into the system folder those two files both show as 0.0 in size. I've tried installing the apk file with the package installer, but that didn't work.
I then got a zip file of the input method to run in recovery mode, but there seem to be some problems with the file as it came back as "wrong digest". (I know there's supposed to be a thing to disable verification in the recovery menu, but my ME600 doesn't have it. I've checked under Other and Flash from SD).
Is there anyone who can help? Thanks in advance.
