This is how you change your hardware keyboard layout, if for example you've flashed your X1 with another language, and your keyboard layout is messed up. I flashed my Swedish X1 with a UK rom, and I'm now using the Swedish keyboard with this registry change.

Change the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD\CurLan g
to whatever you want your layout to be. The default is CurLang=409 (hex).

English - 409 (tested - works)
Finnish - 40b (tested - works)
Swedish - 41d (tested - works)
German - 407 (tested - works)
Italian - 410 (tested - works)
French - 40c (tested - works)
full list of codes

Make sure to edit the value in hex!

Program to edit the registry in Windows via ActiveSync: CeRegEditor
Program to edit the registry with the phone: Total Commander


Note: This doesn't change the on-screen keyboard

Instructions for French layout later in the thread.

Is there a way to add new commands?
I'd like to have "FN+C"=copy, "FN+p"=paste, "FN+x"=cut, "FN+A"= mark all, "FN+Sym"=Bluetooth on/off, "FN+àü"=wifi on/off.

Any chance to get this?
