Thumbs up [APP][2.2+] PCBTKeyboard - Use your PC, as android keyboard

Ok, today I made a Poll, asking if this was a good Idea. Even if low amount of people voted, I can see a high percent of them said is something cool. So here it Is, a Simple software made for using your pc / laptop with bluetooth, for writing into your android device ( even for playing! ), there are 2 apps, PC one (you need java installed), and android one, for Froyo or superior. Download is on second post.

NOTE: THIS APP NEEDS ROOT, BECAUSE USES CONSOLE COMMANDS FOR SIMULATE KEYPRESS!

Instructions:
First youll have to sync your pc with your android device.
then open PCBTKeyboard.jar, and press on "Start bluetooth connection" button
Then open android app, and search on paired list (or press scan devices), your pc, and connect It.
Finally, write on your pc, and it will be written on your phone

Some screenshots (pc and phone):

i get the message "error connecting" with my U20i (XPeria x10 mini pro) with the kernel and device as shown in my signature. Some more detailed error messages would be nice.

okay. so what do you actually mean with "sync"? Just pair it or what?
Because i did pair my netbook and my U20i, then pressed on my netbook on the list of the paired devices, which then resulted in the "error connecting".

works on LG GT540 but some bugs :
1-very slow response (writes the letter after 2-5 seconds) also when using backspace the box on pc is empty but letters are still there in phone
2-After I change to another application it just write random letters of word e.g (If I write Market it write on phone "Ma" or "rk" etc...
3-After a while of using I get this error on pc

There's an option to sync, that willl show a code or somthing like that, on phone and pc, for better results, you should do that.

The slow response is normal behaviour, i need to find a better way to writing, also, for delete all characters you need to press back space, multiple times (not just hold pressed), ill work on that too.
and the error maybe because you are using non allowed characters like ¡ or ?, wich android input keyevent and input text does not recognize. The random letters is weird, could i get a video on that? thanks.

btw, I can do software as fast as real time, but it will lost ability to write outside activity, and over any application
