Default Aedon's FULL WP7 Keyboard Skins

I had a few Requests to make a keyboard that resembles the Windows 7 Phone onscreen keyboard.

This keyboard Will skin every layout in your phone. (Stock htc keyboard only)
It will also require an aditional step other then just installing the cab, as the cab will only skin the layouts, it will not change the letters to white as seen in the screen shots..

You will need to download the file in the second post and follow all of the directions there to be able to have white letters.
If you wish to remove this cab, you will need to follow the steps again but with the other file to return your font to black.










DIRECTIONS
FIRST download the cab on this post, THEN follow directions on second post to get white text on your keyboard
Enjoy


DISCLAIMER!!!!
THIS HAS A POTENCIAL OF MESSING UP YOUR PHONE. INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK

Here are the steps you need to follow inorder to get the text on your keyboard white rather then stock black.
Follow thees instructions exactly...

1
First, download the "White ezinputs.zip" at the bottom of this post.

Extract the folder inside of it and place it somewhere on your storage card.

2
Using total commander, navagate to that folder and click it.

Now, open the folder to see the file inside. (the file name should be 'ezinput.dll')

Now click right click it and hit 'Properties'

Uncheck all the boxes under attributes.
(just click on the check mark, and if you have to, click it again if it goes gray rather then dissapearing)

Click ok at the botom of your screen.

3
Now go to your windows directory.

Find the ezinputs.dll in your windows directory and do the same thing.

Hit ok when done

***If your ezinput.dll file in your \windows directory has the 'in ROM' box checked under the sttributes, then you can skip steps 4 and 7***

4
Rename the file in your directory to 'ezinputs2.dll'

5
Go back to the file on your sdcard and right click it and select 'copy/move'
then on the next window you have 4 choices
copy
move
tree
cancel


Select 'tree', then click on 'windows' (it should be the last item on that list of folders)

After that, it will go back to the window with the 4 choices mensioned above.

Select 'copy'
It might take a min to do this, just wait.

6
Once its finished there, soft reset.

After its started up, your keys should be white.

7
Go back into your windows directory and delete the 'ezinputs2.dll' file.

8
Reset again just to be safe.
That should take care of it.


If you want to return to black text, repeat thees instuctions with the black ezinputs zip. and dont skip any steps

Files are up on post 2


It is technically possible.. Dinik did it by using another cab to overright the phones auto rejection response to an outside system file, such as the ezinput.dll file.

The problem with that is, you cant make the cab with the ezinput in it certified to be installed without that other cab.
You would just get a failure to install.
(sound familiar?)

It also cant be removed with out that other cab.
Also... you cant remove that other cab at all, you get an error from the phone saying it wasnt compleatly removed.
(go figure)

And if you just uninstall the cab, it wont remove the white text
You would be stuck with white text on your stock keyboard, or any other keyboard you try no matter what you did unless you follow my instructions.

So I think its better this way so that people can go back and forth and have an easily install/uninstall cab
