Default [APP][MOD][JB][CM10] Modified LatinIME.apk for Mms Newlines & Tablet Number Mod

Features:

Mms Carriage Returns

Want to insert new lines in a SMS or MMS but still use the AOSP keyboard? and still run a modified Mms.apk?
I've modified the LatinIME.apk from JB/CM10 to show the Carriage Return button when composing an SMS/MMS thru the stock Mms.apk and still retain the smiles.
From my previous Mms.apk mod thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1583232), Mms.apks are usually frequently updated from CyanogenMod ROMs or from other modifications like inverted/themed Mms.apks.
The behavior of the LatinIME keyboard now is modified to still enjoy your freedom for other modified Mms.apks

Tablet Mod

Originally, the shortcuts to numeric keys on the first row of the keyboard on most languages and style (QWERTY, QWERTZ, etc) was disabled (as compared to the ICS LatinIME). This modified Mms.apk re-enables those shortcuts.

Ok, so this mod will add the next line/return button on the keyboard and let me use the "stock" mms.apk or even an inverted version of the mms.apk?
That would be nice!
Using your previous modded mms.apk I was moving the apk to system/app, change permissions and owner and worked fine.
Now where I can find LatinIME.apk in order to backup it?
Thank you!

Edit:
Ok! Found it in the same folder! /system/app . In order to make the backup, copying it to another location is enough?

Thanks a ton Mikko

Just this morning I downloaded apktool and tried fooling around with latinime.apk. Tried various stuff but failed. What a coincidence that you finish it today.

Thanks again!

Updated first post.

Version 1.1 - 20120915
- Tablet Mod - Enable number input shortcut on sw600dp and sw768dp screens.

Note:
The new mod only adds the tablet mod to the LatinIME. No need to update if you are using a phone.

Default Volume cursor

Is there anyway that you could add a volume button-controlled cursor option to the keyboard apk? I love what you did though It works!

Seems like the update.zip is broken.. nobody reported this. I'll try to provide a good one but it may take sometime as my ISP is acting weird lately. I keep getting frequent disconnections and result in a corrupted upload. The d-h.st site is down too.

You can use the adb method for the mean time though.
