Having salvaged the apk files from the Galaxy Nexus ROM and the necessary lib from the apks themselves, I thought I'd share this find of mine. Sure, there are ICS-like keyboards on Google Play, but this is the genuine deal for all of you, whose ICS ROM doesn't include the stock keyboard (TouchWiz based ROMs, for one).

How to install via adb:
Quote:

adb remount
adb push LatinImeGoogle.apk /system/app
adb push LatinImeDictionaryPack.apk /system/app
adb shell mv /system/lib/libjni_latinime.so /system/lib/libjni_latinime.so.old
adb push libjni_latinime.so /system/lib

Thanks! Was looking everywhere for this. I didn't like the ones in playstore. One of them is actually really good, but doesn't have my other language (Arabic).

Stock ICS keyboard is my favorite keyboard on all smartphones. Switched from GNexus to SGS3 and was very disappointed by all keyboards I tried, until now that is.

Lots lots of thanks!

Yes, I'm afraid. There are various ports for Gingerbread on Google Play, though.

Have you guys ever tried the hackers keyboard? I use Swype, so the ICS keyboard as a daily wouldn't work, but I need something in the terminal. I used to switch to the AOSP keyboard, but when I find this one, I thought it to be more flexible in allowing additional characters, ctrl, alt, etc.

Just curious on what you thought...

I am not sure if I got it in the market, but I think so.

It's a hit-or-miss, really. I extracted the needed lib, but as for the other dependencies - I'm not that much of a dev to find out.

Thanks the keyboard work here really good (ICS ST15i)

Just curious: what have in this libjni_latinime.so? All android, I guess, already have this, and I keep my stock, just want to know if this is a kind of library with a lot of supported languages, better than I or we have already...

I cannot thank you enough for this!! The stock ICS keyboard is great and Motorola saw fit to replace it with their "large key" version of it on the recent Droid RAZR ICS update.

Would be great if this could be made into a non system APK so it could be installed as a regular app without root.

But thank you again!

By the way -- for anyone interested, on the Droid RAZR ICS (Release ROM) -- you don't need to replace the stock or push this "LatinImeDictionaryPack.apk" as it is already included. Seems the stock Motorola keyboard uses this APK.

Also, the library file is not on the phone so you don't have to worry about renaming the old one either.

Basically just put "LatinImeGoogle.apk" into /system/app and "libjni_latinime.so" into /system/lib and you are set.

Don't even need a reboot!
