as many of u know. touchwiz roms dont include spell checking
(the red line underneath miss spelled words like found on nokiia,blacknerry,iphone and cm based roms)

i think i came across a fix for this,

the files that has 2 be changed are the following 2.

Secsettings.apk & framework2.jar

--or you can backup your device and replace the 2 files with files attached in 2nd post


--or you can flash the zip file in 2nd post (please backup and confirm if it works on your device

You need to decompile Secsettings.apk & framework2.jar.

In SecSettings, open the file "res\xml\language_settings.xml" and look for:

Code:
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/phone_language" android:key="phone_language" android:fragment="com.android.settings.LocalePicker" />
add new line and paste the following:

Code:
<com.android.settings.inputmethod.SpellCheckersPreference android:title="@string/spellcheckers_settings_title" android:key="spellcheckers_settings" />
In framework2.jar, open the file "smali\android\widget\TextView.smali" and look for:

Code:
.method public isSuggestionsEnabled()Z
    .locals 1

    .prologue
    .line 8464
    const/4 v0, 0x0

    return v0
.end method
Change the highlighted to:

Code:
.method public isSuggestionsEnabled()Z
    .locals 1

    .prologue
    .line 8464
    const/4 v0, 0x1

    return v0
.end method
That is all and enjoy.

NOTE: It works with Google Keyboard or alternatives.

I tried this on my Galaxy Note 10.1 running stock UK ma5 ROM, it kind of worked in some apps, red underline appeared, but I lost access to my "settings" panel and it also installed something called mobihotspot(?) Which I was unable to remove.

Very simple. Just go the the PhilZ kernel thread and follow the instructions very closely.

I did not try the flashable file, but doing this manually worked on my VZW Galaxy S4 running JellyBeans build 6 (deodexed ROM).

*Edit*
This also adds spell checking to chrome's address bar, and presumably other text fields that do not normally have it. For me, that is only a minor annoyance and is greatly outweighed by the addition of spell check. Just an FYI.
