After the upgrade to Gingerbread, the old layout files don't work anymore, so I updated them to fit the new OS version. To install, move the file
sec_keypad.kcm.bin to /system/usr/keychars and sec_keypad.kl to /system/usr/keylayout
This (of course) requires root privileges.

Layout description: All keys work as printed on the german keyboard.
Changes/additions:
  • Sym key for Umlaut
  • = on Shift+ß
  • ~ on Shift+?
  • ^ on Shift+.
  • < on Alt+Sym
  • > on Shift+Sym
  • [ on Alt+Shift+L
  • ] on Alt+Shift+ß
  • { on Alt+Shift+o
  • } on Alt+Shift+p

This should work for azerty.
I edited sec_keypad.kl to match azerty keyboard and it works on my device.
I think the sec_keypad.kcm.bin is a file from froyo that I renamed but I am not sure, I would say try to change sec_keypad.kl alone first and if not enough replace sec_keypad.kcm.bin.

Just a question. How do I copy this to /system/usr/ without reflashing via Odin? I already have my phone rooted after upgrading to stock Samsung Gingerbread.

Thanks in Advanced

You first have to remount your system partition in read/write-mode:
Code:
busybox mount -o rw,remount /system
Then you can move your files from wherever you pushed/downloaded them on the phone (in this example /data/local/tmp):
Code:
busybox mv /data/local/tmp/sec_keypad.kcm.bin /system/usr/keychars
busybox mv /data/local/tmp/sec_keypad.kl /system/usr/keylayout

Hi! Could you be so kind and write a german layout char map for those who own a QWERTY Layout but want a german Keylayout? So not just switching Y and Z, but also adapt the Alt+Z and Alt+Y functions of the keys. That would be awsome!
