Big thanks to Camalot for his continued work on coding this amazing keyboard.
Find his thread here.


If there are any questions concerning functions of the keyboard, please visit Camalot's thread and ask there. He has handled the coding of this KB and will be able to provide an answer.

I've decided to break away from that thread with my Blackout versions so they are more visible.
__________________________________________________ _______________________________
If you decide to use these in any ROM or theme, please link back to this thread and use my download links. Also post in this thread a link to the ROM or theme. Doing this I am able to keep track of which is being downloaded the most and can focus future updates to those versions first. Thank you.

Please do not post any mirrors. I use Mediafire because it allows me to track downloads easily (and its free). I have also attached the .zip files below.

disclaimer: I am not responsible for anything that may go wrong with your phone after flashing these keyboards. Should something happen, please post and I will try to help you solve to the best of my ability.

*It will seems like a lot of files are being deleted when installing. All that is happening is the update script is looking for any keyboard .apk that may interfere with the installation of Blackout.

···If the keyboard appears to not have installed; first, please post and let me know; second, you can try and delete GingerbreadKeyboard.apk and any ime-mtm-name-gingerbread.apk from /system/app and then reflash the .zip···

No...the update script should delete any keyboard named GingerbreadKeyboard.apk along with most of Camalot's and My previous releases just to make sure there is no issue. I'll take a look at the script to make sure everything is spelled correctly and in it's place.

*edit*
Appears everything is kosher. Guess just need to see if other people have issues.

Hey, fyi, in my other keyboards, from now on, I name them GingerbreadKeyboard.apk so it will replace the existing one.

For anyone that downloaded the Gingerbread Blackout Green that I had posted this afternoon, please redownload. I made a huge mistake and it had the blue graphics instead of green.
