Default [Guide] How to install Google L keyboard on your rooted device

Thanks to @bejunk
As seen here you can get the files to add the Google L stock keyboard onto your device

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2796129

you have to manual install.
1. extract all files.
2. move the ''LatinImeGoogle.apk'' to /system/app; long press on APK, choose change permissions, now make the ticks like in attached picture.
3. move the ''libjni_latinimegoogle.so'' to /system/lib; like above, long press, & change permissions.
4. reboot system, then go to settings & activate keyboard

permisson settings

I also flashed without an issue, and yes, I uninstalled Google keyboard first. It is part of the instruction set, you know... And I'm not one to take chances like that

This worked great. I love the look and it seems google finally figured out how to give more word choices. Does anyone know if there's a way to enable the long-press secondary keys? Its the one thing that slows down my typing.
