Hello all !!!

You tell me it's mostly for the French because only they who uses the azerty, and... you're right

Ok, remember that you must to be root !

And now, let's go !

firstly, download the file azerty_keymap.zip (below) and chose between these 2 methods.

the first : Using ADB (you have to download Android SDK before)

just plug your Xoom and push files with these command lines

adb remount
adb push Generic.kl /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl
adb push Generic.kcm /system/usr/keychars/Generic.kcm
adb reboot

the second method : Using Root Explorer (or anything else like it)

copy Generic.kl in the folder /system/usr/keylayout/ (mount r/w before)
then copy Generic.kcm in the folder /system/usr/keychars/
remount r/o
reboot

and NOW...!!!! Enjoy your azerty keyboard with.

I hope it will help you.

What is the brand of your keyboards ?

If your keyboard is know by the system, correct map is use, else, generic map is apply.
Give me brand/model of your keyboards, and I'll help.

hi
would it be possible to remap Mail button to open Gmail app instead of the standard email app ?

I looked into the .kl file, and there is the line
Code:
key 184   KEYBOARD_EMAIL
Do you know what I could write instead of this line to start gmail app ?

Thanks
