Default IME update.zip installers (HTC_CIME, iWnn IME) [updated 2009-07-30]

Quote:
IMPORTANT WARNING: Before installing any /system IME, you must check whether you have enough free space in your /system partition! To check your remaining space, open Terminal Emulator and type df. Incompletely installed IMEs will crash/not work properly!
IME update.zip installers


About IMEs

OEM IMEs are input method editors that are included preinstalled on Android products released in regions that don't use a Latin keyboard. As with all preinstalled apps, they are by default contained in the /system partition. These update.zip installers allow you to quickly and simply reinstall an OEM IME onto your 1.5 or higher build Android using the recovery. Note that you must have the test-key certificates installed in order to use these (i.e. you need to be "rooted").

Installation

1. Check your remaining space in /system by opening Terminal Emulator and typing df. The third line or so should be:
Code:
/system: xxxxxK total, xxxxxK used, xxxxxK available (block size 4096)
(Remember that 1024KByte = 1MByte)
2. After confirming you have enough space in step 1, download the desired IME installer.
3. Rename the installer to update.zip and copy it to the root of your sdcard.
4. Reboot into recovery and use Alt+S to flash the updater. Reboot when done.
5. Open your settings to Locale & text and check the box next to the new IME. If you do not wish to use the multi-IME selector then uncheck the other unwanted IMEs.

HTC Chinese IME

The Chinese IME bundled with HTC-branded phones sold in Asia (e.g. HTC Magic & HTC Hero). CIME contains multiple input methods, including handwriting recognition, zhuyin, cangjie, pinyin, and stroke. CIME can recognize both traditional and simplified handwriting, but output for keyboard input methods will default to traditional or simplified based on your system locale setting.

iWnn Japanese IME

iWnn IME is a Japanese IME bundled with NTT DoCoMo's release of the HTC Sapphire hardware (rebadged as NTT DoCoMo HT-03a). iWnn IME contains three primary input schemes, a standard qwerty latin input, a qwerty-phoneme input, and a 9-key kana input. Predictive text performance is good. However, no handwriting recognition for kanji is available.

2009-07-30: Changed the links to box.net as the files were starting to hit drop.io's 1000 download limit. =/
2009-07-28: Added back missing preview screenshots of CIME.

Any chance of getting the non chinese vk, the one that just says touch input. Just wondering if it's the same issue as registering additional libraries.

But this is great btw.

I don't think key.apk is present in any Haykuro H build based on 1.5. I'll dig back to a 5.x version and see if it is compatible. It might not be possible to install it alongside HTC_CIME though?

I second this. Whenever I try just installing key.apk, I get force closes every 10 seconds and it gets annoying...

Which Haykuro build are you extracting your key.apk from? You are probably missing some required libraries.

Same method as handwriting input in vertical screen.

1. Put your app in horizontal mode (if you have autorotate enabled just rotate the phone)
2. Tap on text input field.
3. Tap the gear button. If you are in Latin entry mode, the gear button says "寫". Now you should have horizontal handwriting input.
