dragging knee on the track
just a heads up, this keyboard is now officially in the play store! :good:



ok guys, here we go again :D this time its the Android 4.2 keyboard w/ gesture typing (pulled from Nexus 4, so YES its official)!

Prerequisites: Must be running 4.0+

Installation instructions for non-AOSP roms w/ overlay ie Samsung TouchWiz, HTC Sense, Sony (reported to be a working method w/AOSP roms ie CM 9/10, AOKP)

1. download the apk and place it on your sd card
2. use your favorite file explorer and tap the apk (make sure you have "install from unknown sources" enabled in your phone settings)
3. go into your phone's keyboard settings and enable "Android keyboard"
4. enjoy!

get the apk here

Installation instructions for AOSP roms ie STOCK Android 4.0+ (if the simple apk install didnt work for you)

1. download the zip file and place it on your sd card
2. reboot to recovery
3. install zip from sd card
4. reboot and enjoy!

get the flashable zip here

[UPDATE 1] updated, deodexed version of the keyboard AND gallery/camera can be found here courtesy of randomblame. be sure to thank him for his work! this zip MUST be flashed in recovery! if you are having trouble with the keyboard not working, remove the default keyboard with Titanium Backup and flash again.

[UPDATE 2] Tsjoklat has also made a flashable zip of the newer version, you can find here. be sure to thank him! this zip DOES NOT contain the gallery/camera, only the keyboard and associated libs.

Gmail 4.2 apk is back and available for download! get it here!

Installed by flashing the zip and then deleting the original keyboard from my Galaxy S Plus running CM9. Works very nice! A side question, is it possible to add additional dictionaries to it?

Thank you for this! Off topic but could you possibly get the camera apk?

How did you guys get gesture typing to work? I'm on CM10 20121029 and see the keyboard (and can select it) but gesture typing doesn't work. I tried installing the APK and (after uninstall) tried the zip with CWM. No worky for me!!

    Here is a flashable zip that contains only the updated keyboard files from the latest Nexus 4 ROM. The other flashable zip a few posts above this (from the Nexus 4 ROM) had errors in the update script. Also, the version of the flashable zip in this post does not contain any files associated to the camera application (that should be separate).

    I just tested this on CM10 and English is working fine. Dutch works, but Dutch is still not working with the swipe feature in any of the versions posted.
