Default Arabic Gingerbread Keyboard

Update: I've added to the attachments Moo-gbkb-ar.apk . It is an Arabized version with dictionary for the "Keyboard from Android 2.3" version 1.0.11 by Steven Lin so the credit goes to him for the original application (here is a link to the original application in the Market: https://market.android.com/details?i...hod.latin.free)

Moo-gbkb-ar.apk resolves a FC issue on Desire HD...



This is an Arabic/English Keyboard based on hotaru's post here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=875202

The keyboard has a big Arabic dictionary.

The first file has the source files for the xml keyboard layouts and binary dictionary and Arabized strings. It is only for developers and you don't need it if you just want to run the app.

The second file is the APK file that can be installed directly.

If your phone is not already Arabized this will not Arabize it. It only makes it possible to enter Arabic characters.

Is your N1 rooted? and what is your Android version (look it up in Settings=> About phone)

The attached zip file is for developers who would like to use the xml source or the dictionary in other apps. It is not for end users.

no my phone is not rooted...my android version is the latest 2.2.2
i can write arabic letters using "ibrahim keyboard" i downloaded it from the market, but can't read arabic from browser or other apps like twitter or facebook, as i said the letters appear disconnected.

i guess i still have to wait for the gingerbread release.

Gingerbread is not going to fix the disconnected Arabic characters problem based on the following article:
http://ardroid.com/2010/12/14/upcomi...ther-features/

Rooting is not that hard and it gives you flexibility in changing many things including fonts...

You can use this simple method to root:

and then flash the Arabized libraries from here:

This works well on Gingerbread, thank you.

Question Arabic Gingerbread Keyboard

I always interested to have an Arabic keyboard in my device. I am using HTC Desire Z with Android Froyo. Is this keyboard compatible with this device as someone has reported that this keyboard is not compatible with HTC Desire HD? Please Android Expert, help!
