THIS HAS KNOWN ISSUES CAUSING THE HARDWARE KEYBOARD TO DO WEIRD STUFF ON THE DROID 1!!!!
something with the alt key not working correctly, i do not have a moto droid, so thats making it very tough to troubleshoot anything. anyone who does and wants to test some things, pm me, probably have some time this weekend to look at it

Voice input works too!
Back up your stock keyboard first:
adb shell cp /system/app/LatinIME.apk /system/app/LatinIME.apk.bak adb shell cp /system/lib/libjni_latinime.so /system/lib/libjni_latinime.so.bak
flash this from your recovery or from rom manager:
Geo411m has made a black colored one. details here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=211
install the same as the easy way, otherwise download it and pull the apk out of it and install it with the manual method
MANUAL (OLD) METHOD:
get both of these files:
(harder vibrate, < symbol fix)
if you had an older version, be sure to switch to a different keyboard, then remove the old LatinIME.apk before pushing the new one over, otherwise you will get fc's like crazy!
(you may not need this, but it shouldnt hurt anything (backup instructions below) and if the keyboard doesnt work, then definitely try pushing it)
some have reported that for some reason or another this file downloads as a .txt (although it comes as a .so for me all the time) make sure you rename it, if need be, to libjni_latinime.so before going any further
you will need adb for this method (others have done it without a computer)
youll either want to be in recovery, with /system mounted, or remount it read-only while the phone is up (need s-off for this, thanks unrevoked!)
then push the two downloaded files to your phone: (in some roms it is called GoogleLatinIme.apk, so use that instead of LatinIME.apk if thats how your rom is)
adb push d2keyboard-signed-fixed4.apk /system/app/LatinIME.apk adb push libjni_latinime.so /system/lib/libjni_latinime.so
ok, the screenshots really dont mean much, anyone can use gimp, but w/e thought id put them up there anyway
