I've been lurking around here for a long time without taking the time to register..
My primary phone is a nexus1 running CM7, but I recently bought, for work purposes, an Azerty HTC chacha because of its well-made hardware keyboard
I quickly decided to S-OFF it, mainly to be able to root it and remove memory-exhausting bloatware & unneeded apps such facebook etc..
So i got an XTC clip and S-OFFed it successfully, then flashed CWM following the adequate thread, then rooted it.
But I soon realized that the XTC clip had also set my CID to 11111111 (superCID) (previously : HTC__203 which is a French CID) and removed backupCID.
And from that moment, I've completely lost my azerty keyboard!
What I tried so far:
- pressing FN key + space bar and selecting French -> still on qwerty
- getting keyboard layout files / edit manually in /system/usr/.. -> didn't work (still qwerty layout),
- tried changing the CID with "fastboot oem writecid HTC__203" -> chacha fastboot seems to be unable to do that
- tried changing the CID with misc_version (misc_version -c HTC__203 from adb shell or terminal emulator with root permissions) -> didn't work ("error on input file")
I also tried to flash CM 7.1 from the "android developpement" thread but I still got qwerty layout although I selected a French layout on the CM welcome screen.
(I then reflashed to this ROM to come back on a sense ROM)
So, for the moment, my physical-Azerty-but-logical-qwerty chacha is quiete broken for me. I think the point is to succeed in changing back the CID from 11111111 to the french one (HTC__203), but I'm short of solutions so I call for help
Thanks a lot
