Saw this in the Vibrant forum and noticed no one has mentioned it over here so I thought i'd post it. I take no credit as I had no part in any of this, just sharing these guys work with more people!

Orignal thread in the Vibrant section is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=845162

Ok, BIG change starting with 2.x. I am now running a froyo (jk6) build so I will be doing more work with froyo based keyboards instead of the eclair based ones. I will not have any way to test the eclair builds any longer so if someone wants to take them over, send me a message and I will give you the sources (including build scripts).

With 2.x I have started to use the gingerbread keyboard that has been floating around. 1.x builds will continue to be eclair based.

NOTE: Currently the 2.x builds WILL replace your stock keyboard. In order for the auto-complete, I had to revert to using the stock package name. You cannot have more then one of these keyboards installed at a time. I will change this as soon as I find a solution.

I'm absolutely not responsible for anything that happens to your phone from installing this.

Change Log
v2.1

  • Haptic Feedback works
  • fixed popup punctuation outputing the wrong character
  • fixed a ui issue with wp7

v2.1
  • added smileys to normal mode next to the return key
  • added domains to the "/" popup in web mode and added them to the "@" popup in email mode
  • fixed the settings button again (have to remember to check-in the code :P)
  • moved the "," to the default spot in the punctuation popup.

v2.0 (froyo +)
  • first gingerbread based build for froyo based on Fabolous v2 with auto-correct fix.
  • it is basically stock with some tweaks.
  • added smiley images to popup
  • changes "orange" to the samsungish blue.
  • changed the punctuation popup to contain more items
  • added the "shift" char to the numbers (!@#$%^&*())
  • tweaked the "blue" glow
  • auto-complete now working
  • suggestion colors are now touchwiz like colors
  • fixed issue with bringing up settings from the keyboard button
  • fixed the popup for "P" so they all fit.
  • added additional hint key info for top row.
For Eclair (2.1) based builds, see my second post (post #3)

Stock Blue



Stock Green by creator2456 - #post


Stock Orange by the3dman - #post


Blackout Orange by creator2456 - #post


WP7


Blackout - based off the original blackout from creator2456

To install the 2.x versions, install package with CWM.

Note: This are English Only. The other languages have been removed. This gets the size WAY smaller, plus I don't speak anything else so I couldn't edit them if I wanted to.

thanks to creator2456, s0niqu3 and Fabolous

So, installing one of these WILL replace your stock android keyboard. For working haptic feedback make sure its version 2.1 or higher (the attached files in the first post are all v2.1+). Flash it in ClockWork Mod recovery and everything will work!
I have downloaded and flashed all three of the keyboards and they work. But you can only have one installed at a time! They WILL overwrite each other.

Attached Files are at the bottom of the first post here

Guess I'll be a guinea pig later and test if you can simply do this with Root Explorer or ADB cause I have a stock JI6 install with the 3e kernel.

The haptic feedback bug was just fixed yesterday I believe so they are still updating some of them.
As of this post only three versions have been updated and they are all attached in the first post of their thread.

BEWARE (P8)
This killed haptic feedback system-wide on Perception 8 for me! I might work for other ROMs (everyone post their ROM with their feedback reports!), but if you're on Perception, this'll likely kill your haptics.

I'm running P8 and I'm having no problems. Haptic feedback works on everything. . . including the keyboard now!

Ok so it worked for me. I used ADB and backed up my original keyboard (busybox mv LatinIME.apk LatinIME.apk.old) then pushed the replacement in there after renaming it to LatinIME.apk, pushed the libjni_latineime.so into the lib folder, rebooted and presto! Works perfectly. I grabbed the WP7 one.

Edit: And again, as with any keyboard mods I have install, I have gotten random shutdowns. This is most likely an isolated incident, but anyone who suffers from these may want to take heed.
