This method will not work on .odex keyboard apk's, at least to my knowledge but I've always run deodexed ROMS. However, check to see if the keyboard apk you are working with even contains an odex file; a lot of them do not. If it does, you could always grab the apk off the web, mod it, and install it after removing the original files.

Hey Rompnit. Ok, I was having trouble getting apktool to run on my computer. That's what I was talking about on morphology anyway, so I was trying to learn how to theme an app and somehow was lead to morphology and got all caught up over there. Lol. But ya, I'm gonna have to crap clean my laptop to use this. Thanks. See ya over there

This method WILL in fact work on odexed keyboards. Theming for an odex base is no different then a de-odexed base. You are not making any smali adjustments here so nothing that concerns the odex, thus it will not be affected.
