So i want you guys to study this, if it is useful to for example port a HTC Keyboard with arrows and don't have to replace the current one.

Hey Rocky. :) Nice to see you've found my hack, "v3.tt"
I am not exactly 100% sure what you are saying...so please clarify.
For those of you who are interested, here is the link to where the original edited camera apk can be found.
Rocky, if you read my OP from that link, I detailed exactly what I did to make the hack work as advertised. It is not a "supposed HTC Camera app", it is the "HTC Camera app". :)
What I did was edit all the smali and all instances of the identity of the apk in the xml (keep in mind, there is a much easier way to do what I did for the camera apk, but that wouldn't have been nearly as fun).
Using this method, it is very possible to install multiple instances of the "same" app, just different versions, so that one does not have to replace the other.
After learning that the Evo 3d has no arrows (thanks misfit), I thought to myself maybe I could do the same thing. This was earlier last night. At least until there is Root anyways. Then, one could potentially install the HTC_IME over itself, although with a different identity.
Something to think about, if you find a mod or apk, perhaps link to the thread you found it. Maybe, just maybe, the OP of that thread has all the information necessary. ;)
edit. I should note that I did not come up with the apk or the idea of the apk. That is HTC. Also, I was not the first to find the Sense 3.0 camera. That was francios. All I did was mentioned renamed the identity of the apk.
