Update: I've added to the attachments Moo-gbkb-ar.apk . It is an Arabized version with dictionary for the "Keyboard from Android 2.3" version 1.0.11 by Steven Lin so the credit goes to him for the original application (here is a link to the original application in the Market: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.moo.android.inputmethod.latin.free)

Moo-gbkb-ar.apk resolves a FC issue on Desire HD...



This is an Arabic/English Keyboard based on hotaru's post here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=875202

The keyboard has a big Arabic dictionary.

The first file has the source files for the xml keyboard layouts and binary dictionary and Arabized strings. It is only for developers and you don't need it if you just want to run the app.

The second file is the APK file that can be installed directly.

If your phone is not already Arabized this will not Arabize it. It only makes it possible to enter Arabic characters.

Is your N1 rooted? and what is your Android version (look it up in Settings=> About phone)

The attached zip file is for developers who would like to use the xml source or the dictionary in other apps. It is not for end users.

no my phone is not rooted...my android version is the latest 2.2.2
i can write arabic letters using "ibrahim keyboard" i downloaded it from the market, but can't read arabic from browser or other apps like twitter or facebook, as i said the letters appear disconnected.

i guess i still have to wait for the gingerbread release.

I always interested to have an Arabic keyboard in my device. I am using HTC Desire Z with Android Froyo. Is this keyboard compatible with this device as someone has reported that this keyboard is not compatible with HTC Desire HD? Please Android Expert, help!

I use it on a Nexus One with no issues. I would appreciate if you download it and let us know if you had any problems.

To activate the keyboard you will need first to go to "Settings"=> "Language & keyboard" check on "Gingerbread keyboard". Then go to any text box (for example create a new message) and long press on the text area until you get a list of options. Choose "Input methods" and then select "Gingerbread keyboard".

HD HTC HD

Can you attach the apk file that you got from the market (or a link to it) and I'll check it out for you.

For the force close issue, can you help me troubleshooting it by uninstaling my apk and installing the one in this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=875202
test this apk, if it's force closing, then we'll need to report that to hotaru. If not then please let me know and we'll try to take it from there.

Regards,
Yahya

I'm sorry Salmin this means that the original apk has the issue. Only hotaru would be able to fix it. I only added the Arabic keyboard and I don't know that much in programming.

Regarding the Market keyboard, I thought it was a free app. This is a paid app and paid apps are disabled where I live.

    Hello Salmin I meant aahhww when I asked for the screenshot.

    Your problem, I think, is not from the Arabic language. I think it is from the original application.
