Thanks, I'm not sure about the background. I'd have to look into it.

No Dice
So I tried installing the ShaftaRed.apk and followed the instructions. I uninstalled google keyboard and tried to install the .apk. I got a message saying that it couldn't be installed because there was already a signed application with that name. So I tried the .zip. Wiped the cache & dalvik in CWM. I installed the .zip and rebooted. Reboot went fine and android updated apps okay. I went to go test it out and I had no keyboard, only voice. I went into the settings and all I had was the voice option and this Hindi option. Had to reinstall google keyboard from the play store and I hoped that the theme would take effect there but no dice. Any idea on what went wrong?

For reasons im still trying to figure out, sometime even if you uninstall it, it leaves files behind. Particurly in th /app/app-lib folder. Try this: Use a root browser. Go to /data/app and delete the Google keyboard apk. Its labeled: com.google.android.inputmethod.latin-1
Then go to /data/app-lib and delete the folder named: com.google.android.inputmethod.latin-1
If there are two of those folders that is definitely the problem. That folder the library for the keyboard in it. Once you have deleted one of those folders reboot recovery and flash it again. Let me know what happens.

No joy once again unfortunately. I've tried it on mine and my wife's Galaxy Nexus to no avail. We're both unlocked, rooted, and stock 4.3. I've used Rom Toolbox Root Browser to go into the folders you suggested.

Now we both had in /data/app com.google.android.inputmethod.latin-1; but, because of the update we also also had one with the suffix 2. The same applied in /data/app-lib. I uninstalled the app update from the play store on both devices. When I went to the root browser this left both of us with latin-1 in both folders. So I deleted the latin-1 in /data/app and rebooted into recovery.

*EDIT* - When I deleted the latin-1 from /data/app and exited the folder I went back into the folder and it was back as if I never deleted it.

I wiped/formatted the cache and dalvik with CWM, installed the .zip and rebooted.

Reboot went fine and with mine I was left with just Hindi and Pinyin for options in my input settings where my wife's phone still had her original keyboard. Neither got the custom theme unfortunately.

Do you think that this is an issue with the Galaxy Nexus or 4.3?

Thanks for your help.
