Those willing to configure set their keyboard to AZERTY must back up their qwerty-en.klm.bin in the system/usr/keychars/mimmi/keyprints of their 1.6 device.
Even though it's labeled "-en" it's indeed the Azerty layout.
After rooting your 2.1, overwrite qwerty.klm.bin & mimmi_keypad.klm.bin in the system/usr/keychar folder as described here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...=825087&page=2
, then chmod both files to rw-r--r-- and you're all good, swiftkey will work.
You may aso want to change the language of the latin layout in the following file : /system/usr/keyboard-config/keyprint.xml
<script name="latin" keylayout="azerty
