i'm also extremely interested into this topic.

i'll have the MDA Pro in about a week and want to try alt least 2 things:
1. english rom upgrade
2. switch the Z key with the Y key.

Thanks for the interest !

i was hoping that it will be something like a pc keyboard ... that we can remove only the keys and not the entire keyboard.

mine arrives in a week ... so i still have to wait

do you like the german version or waiting to upgrade to english one ?

To remap the keyboard, use this: http://ae.inc.ru/aekmap_t.html

Takes a while to learn how it works, but works like a charm.
You will have to create your own keymap file.

I was succesfull to change the keyboard from QWERTZ to QWERTY

I wont recommend it, cause the size of Y and Z are a bit different.

The Z is ok and u wont notice, but the Y has 0,5 mm difference on the sides.

U can get used to it very fast though. And u dont really notice it.

This all without voiding warrenty stickers..

Now i need a english rom to enable QWERTZ ->QWERTY

The most difficult thing seems that we need an english ROM with the german keyboard.

Maybe someone who tried something like this have some answers.
