Thumbs up [KEYBOARD] Stock Gingerbread Keyboard without smiley key

That damn smiley key was driving me insane, so I got the Gingerbread keyboard source from AOSP, got it to compile, and got rid of the smiley face button. Other than that, it's identical to the stock Android gingerbread keyboard, so requires 2.3+. Eventually I may figure out how to make it able to be turned on and off, but that would rather defeat the point. Enjoy!

(Note: you have to enable it in the Keyboard settings before you can use it, just like any other keyboard.)

The Eclipse project (source) is available here.

this sounds like a good thing for me because it also became annoying to me.

quick question though because i cant check out the keyboard mod yet, but does it remove the smiley key completely, or does it replace it with an enter key or something?

soon as i get the chance, ill install and see for myself

Nice. I like that it has been replaced with the enter key instead. I find that to be immensely more useful.

I replaced it with the significantly-more-useful return key.

The smiley key doesn't annoy me per se, but the fact that the Enter key was removed does. So now, it is impossible to have any semblance of formatting in your SMS'es.

Will definitely give this a go as soon as possible. This is definitely a must have as far as I am concerned.

Thanks, but i've a problem with your keyboard.

I turned on the vibrate on keyboard settings, but there is no vibration when I push a key.
