hey everyone.
as with the launcher i have also been working on the keyboard.
the keys are about as tall as they should be on a normal 4in screen.
I also disabled full screen mode. i find it easier, if you dont like it i can post another version of the apk, and if you want to compile it, the change is in my commit history.

SUPPORTS
Any gingerbread rom, blurred, cm7 and
cm9!


IF IT DOES NOT WORK
Quote:

Please list:
Your rom (and rom base(cm7, cm9, aosp))
that you did enter the correct permissions and you are sure!
that you copied it correctly

sorry if the questions are repetitive but it saves me time from asking every time.

--UPDATE--
Added a full-screen version. download the LatinIME_FULLSCREEN zip from below and install the same way as the rest

--UPDATE--
I need to make clear that this only works with cm7 based roms. no ics yet. im working on that next.

--UPDATE--
fixed autocorrect
fixed support for Neutrino V2.2
i think more languages got added. (confirm?)

if your building this in a source built rom you need to replace
Quote:

/vendor/cyanogen/overlay/olympus/packages/inputmethods/LatinIME/java/res/dimens.xml

with mine form my source post
That and you need to build Cyanogen-Olympus
that was also my mistake in the first build



this too is completely open and all of the changes i make can be seen though the commits on my github page

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THIS IN YOUR ROM.
it can be implemented in a source built rom or via apk paste
(just give proper credits)


GINGERBREAD TUTORIAL

download the GINGERBREAD_LatinIME.zip
extract LatinIME.apk
this needs to be installed in
Quote:

/system/app

apk is in the xda link at the bottom
you also should
Quote:

adb shell
cd system/app
chmod 644 LatinIME.apk

either through root explorer or via adb

IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH Neutrino V2.2 THEN CLICK HERE

Then reboot your phone!!!



ICS (cm9 or aosp) TUTORIAL

download the ICS_LatinIME.zip
extract LatinIME.apk
I could not get it to work via adb. so i used root explorer.
download the ics zip file. follow the gingerbread instructions.
its basically the same thing. im just posting this because adb did not work for me.
dont forget about permissions!


I am not going to write another guide just for the keyboard. because its much simpler. if you would like to know how to compile it look at the launcher guide i posted below and just follow the compile steps and use LatinIME instead of Launcher2
