ok guys, here we go again this time its the Android 4.2 keyboard w/ gesture typing (pulled from Nexus 4, so YES its official)!

Prerequisites: Must be running 4.0+

Installation instructions for non-AOSP roms w/ overlay ie Samsung TouchWiz, HTC Sense, Sony (reported to be a working method w/AOSP roms ie CM 9/10, AOKP)

1. download the apk and place it on your sd card
2. use your favorite file explorer and tap the apk (make sure you have "install from unknown sources" enabled in your phone settings)
3. go into your phone's keyboard settings and enable "Android keyboard"
4. enjoy!

get the apk here

Quote:

Installation instructions for AOSP roms ie STOCK Android 4.0+ (if the simple apk install didnt work for you)

1. download the zip file and place it on your sd card
2. reboot to recovery
3. install zip from sd card
4. reboot and enjoy!

get the flashable zip here

Quote:

[UPDATE 1] updated, deodexed version of the keyboard AND gallery/camera can be found here courtesy of randomblame. be sure to thank him for his work! this zip MUST be flashed in recovery! if you are having trouble with the keyboard not working, remove the default keyboard with Titanium Backup and flash again.

Quote:

[UPDATE 2] Tsjoklat has also made a flashable zip of the newer version, you can find here. be sure to thank him! this zip DOES NOT contain the gallery/camera, only the keyboard and associated libs.

Gmail 4.2 apk is back and available for download! get it here!

Full LG Nexus 4 System Dump/Sounds/Wallpapers available here!

Cool! Using it to type this message, not sure if I like it better than Swype. Wonder if the keyboard layout can be changed. Still very cool, the prediction seems a little better than Swype.

Installed by flashing the zip and then deleting the original keyboard from my Galaxy S Plus running CM9. Works very nice! A side question, is it possible to add additional dictionaries to it?

Doesn't work on C.M.A.P (Xperia Arc S)

The two Layouts (Android-Tastatur) and (Android-Tastatur (ASOP)) looks the same :/
