I've updated the Tilt keyboard fix to address the apparent issue with the Smartdialer keys also being incorrectly mapped when flashing a non AT&T ROM onto the Tilt. This will also fix the FN character issues being incorrectly mapped too.

This was tested on a Tilt flashed with the (current) HTC ROM and worked perfectly.


Install -> Soft Reset

Enjoy!


IMPORTANT:
  • Some people have reported that this cab didn't fix their Smartdialer issue. It's important that you uninstall the older cab that was posted here (if you even installed it), then soft reset. Then install the new one and soft reset one more time. That should do it.
  • Do not unzip/decompress this .cab file on your desktop and move the files over to your device. It won't work. You need to copy the .cab (as is) onto your device and tap to install.

This is great! Any tips on how to accomplish the reverse...if someone say, wanted to put the Tilt ROM on their Kaiser?

Remove the registry key and soft-reset.
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD]
"CWSLayout"=dword:00000001

You "should" be able to just navigate to:

HKLM\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD and delete CWSLayout, then soft-reset.

EDIT: Dang, Pof beat me to it.

When you flash the HTC ROM (or any non-ATT ROM) onto the ATT Tilt, some of the alternate (FN) characters on the keyboard are mapped incorrectly. This fixes that.
