Arrow HTC IME Mod Keyboard with Voice Input (v27, June 08, 2010)

I do NOT create this app.
So, please do NOT contact me about it.
Because I have no idea how to edit or hack it to solve your problem.
Use it as it is posted here.


__________________________________________________ __________

If you updated with the official FroYo:

- Uninstall current HTC IME Mod version

- Download and install the below version:

Good news everyone

Version v27, June 08, 2010

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=624416

It is now working with HTC Desire, no need to have root access!

Voice input is working !
Plus bunch of other cool features (gestures, smileys, etc.)

Question and Answer

Q: Do I need root access to install this keyboard?
A: No, you dont. Really, you don't need root access!

Q: How do I install this keyboard?
A: Download the "hires" version, unzip it and transfer the HTC_IME_hi.apk to the phone. Use app manager like EStrongs or ASTRO to install this .apk file

Q: Do I need to install the Clicker.apk?
A: No, you dont. You only need this if your phone does not use HTC Sense UI

Q: How do I activate this keyboard?
A: After you installed the keyboard, do long press on a text input field. Then choose HTC IME Mod as input method. You need to do this just once.

Q: Does pinch to zoom still work with this keyboard?
A: Yes, it does work.

Q: Does the phone need to be connected to the internet to use voice input?
A: Yes

Q: But, the voice input still does not work! I pressed the voice input button and nothing came up.
A: Make sure your "voice search" is functioning, press the "Search" hardware button. If you don't see voice search icon then install this:
http://code.google.com/p/voicesearch/
Install only the VoiceSearch 2.1

Q: How to upgrade from old release to new release?
A: Use app manager like EStrongs or ASTRO then choose upgrade

Create your own keyboard themes? Go here:

It is very easy, you just choose colors and upload image, done!

Example:


Nexus 5 : Android 4.4.1 stock ROM, stock recovery, rooted

This is a modification of the HTC Sense keyboard, yes you are correct.

The modification adds some more nice features + bug fixes of HTC code.

Which also enable voice input.

In the past, we cannot install this on HTC Desire because it requires root.
But now you can, jonasl made some more changes to make it works as "external 3rd party" keyboard like "Better Keyboard" for example.

When you install this, your current default original HTC Sense keyboard will not be replaced.

So, it is safe! You can choose

can I install this beside the Verizon 2.1 Keyboard which is also installed on my phone? I prefer the stock keyboard to have mic input.

looking at the voice search included in verizon 2.1 keyboard, this is higher version than voicesearch_2.1.apk (v1.50 compare to v1.40). gonna try installing it beside verizon 2.1 keyboard.
