Hey there, here is the latest Sony Xperia™ Keyboard - I love its Design & its smart ;)
- works on allmost all phones -
- supports Marshmallow, Nougat & Oreo ROM's! -
- works on stock ROM's, LineageOS etc..

/// WHAT'S NEW:

/// WHAT'S IN:
- original untouched files, fast, lightweight/no bloat
- smart language selection (use 2+ languages at once!)
- 5 themes built-in
- optional number row!
- adjustable keyboard height!
- many other custom settings
- most languages supported
- SwiftKey word prediction (even better now!)
- Swipe typing
- choose Keyboard layout (QWERTZ etc.)
- uses your default emoji's
- Voice input if your ROM supports it

/// INSTALL:
just download & flash the zip via recovery (TWRP etc).
make sure to flash the 64bit version if your phone has 64bit cpu (google it if unsure)

After flashing you need to enable this Keyboard in Settings > Language & Input >
Current Keyboard > enable Xperia Keyboard!!!
Dont forget to go to keyboard settings & download language pack!

NOTE: If you are updating your ROM, please flash the keyboard zip after the update again, allways.
This will make sure all your settings, language packs, custom words etc will survive the update.

/// HELP & TIPPS:
Q: I have no recovery, but root (-access)?
A: just extract contents of zip & put the 'textinput-tng' folder into /system/app. reboot & done.

Q: I cant download Language Packs, what to do?
A1: just untick & tick again & try download again. sometimes its buggy...
A2: Here is a Solution: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59687540&postcount=87 big thanks again @billy.bong

Q:Will it work on x86 Systems?
A1: yup.
A2: See here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59585083&postcount=55 thanks @billy.bong

Q: UNINSTALL???
A: Get a root explorer or even with twrp and delete the "textinput-tng" folder in /system/app. reboot, done.

have fun, peace :)

does not work with AOSP 5.1 Samsung Grand Duos :confused: will test on CM12 tonight


Edit :- works fine on CM12 attaching some ss,
btw i wasn't able to get log for AOSP 5.1 as i tried installing by flashing zip didn't worked so checked if your mentioned folder exists in system/app with all files as per flashable zip or not & permissions as well everything was fine then went ahead & did factory reset & tried same again but didn't worked so went ahead & checked all apk's installed to check if keyboard apk is installed or not & as i guessed it wasn't so last option to install manually & make it system app with proper permissions but while installing manually normal mode & forcefully via adb didn't worked parse error & i guess until a app is not installed there is no way to get logcat


& thanks for awesome keyboard mate please can you add numbers row cheers :good:

sorry, :( may u can post me a log?


EXTRA: (requested the other stuff)

- *NEW* Movies App 8.1.A.030 (install as normal apk)
http://www77.zippyshare.com/v/Y69lTVWS/file.html

- Sounds (not much changed doh')
http://www37.zippyshare.com/v/2uD2tUpF/file.html

Notes:
- Calender works suprisingly fully but has much dark text on dark & white txt on white bugs (framework i guess), so its NOT usable :crying:
- Album is older Version than posted by Ben Ling
- NO NEW WALLPAPERS! (i didnt find new ones just the old. lol)
- FOR ALL OTHER STUFF, wait for full ports, but give them some time ;)

peace, bejunk

in language & input settings press on "actual keyboard" , on the popup again press. "choose keyboard" then u can activate it.

also make sure the app is in your system. good luck
thanks for your support, i have found the problem: the root/recovery app doesn't works good on my phone, the file is partial and i cant copy/move in "manual mode" your apk because I can't write/overwrite files without corrupt it...

Almost perfect on Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Cataclysm. Only problem I had was the Fc when I was trying to download additional languages. As workaround I was installing an older port of Z3 keyboard, download the desired languages and the flash again this keyboard. Tho the problem might be with SELinux permissive but is too late for me to test. For now I'm happy fhat I managed to make it to work. Was expecting for long time for a material Xperia keyboard (best OEM keyboard in my opinion). Tomorrow I'll test if the issue is with SELinux or not.

you can rename the apk to your wishes. (doesent affect anything but i think if same package name inside it will delete one of them after reboot) or you install 2nd keyboard lik google one, then backup current xperia keyboard to SD, delete from system, manual install my keyboard.
Does it support Chinese input? Can the 5th number row on the top be activated? Thanks
theres a "textinput-chn" i guess means chinese. you need it i can do it tomorrow...
