Hey Guys, I made a program so you can switch your Phone's Hardware Keyboard with just two clicks on the PC.

Instructions:
  • Connect Phone
  • Turn on USB Debugging
  • start Programm
  • select your desired Language from the List
  • Hit Button
  • Finished
  • Reboot Phone

Works on every rooted Phone.
Its for the Sony Ericsson Default Input Method.


(The Program can only be started if Java 1.6 is installed just double Click it)

Source Code is available in this post too, ..._src.zip

May you provide the sources please?
Or in other words: do you replace some files or is it just the keyprint.xml thingy?

Thanks man, but for me it is easier to change it manually using root explorer, because I never use data cable :D But it is very useful for many people :)

Another awesome tool that works fine :)
But why java? It takes ages to load the jvm just for some commands that are ported into a GUI :/

THanks Slade,

I tested it to update my MiniPro to qwerty-br, reboot and it works!

Just to confirm, now instead of SE keyboard I see TalkBack keyboard option...

Look at programs compiled in C/C++, they run really fast, while in java you have to wait some time, until the java virtual machine is loaded ;)
Sure, the cross platforming of java is awesome, but i dont think so much GUI-only people are driving linux on their systems :p

Hi Slade,

Qwerty-br is definitly different than qwerty-pt!
Example
- 'Ç' is ','
- ',' is '´'
- '´' does not exist

You have all details in the other thread to create a qwerty-pt, but if you need again I can attach it!

Can you please make a qwerty-pt?

Thanks

I have a question can I use this to make layout for other keyboar like 'Android keyboard' can I use this to make a layout for that. I want it because in 'android keyboard' the slide out qwerty does not have a underscore ' _ ' mark.

@Nayef
You have to install the jre, just google "java"
@Linux Users
Yeah, but i think you are used to use commands instead of GUIs?

    Amazing mate,great idea, and i like it's done on java, will work on ubuntu?

    would just need to change adb.exe in adb (in source) and provide the proper linux files. other than that no issue.
