Works like a charm on my N1. One question though, the Gingerbread keyboard option sometimes gets unticked in the keyboard settings, a few times through general use and always on reboot (or if I turn it off for a flight and then turn it on).
Is there anyway to make it the default option instead of the Android keyboard?
(and before you ask, I have installed it to internal memory instead of the sd card).

Thanks,

The keyboard seems to force close a bit, has some accuracy issues, and is missing a dictionary. Other than that, it's very cool. :) Any ideas on how to fix these things? This is on a mytouch 4g.

    Thanks, but I missed the dutch keyboard. More people were asking for it, but nobody fixed it (I think)

    So i've put in the dutch dictionary in the ruKeyboard_2.0_r21_full.apk\res\raw folder as main.dict

    So for dutch users looking for a working keyboard, see attachment.

    Would be great if you could add this raw-nl file to the official version, because now multi language (by swiping space) doesn't work anymore and I can't seem to get it to work properly.

    GingerKeyboard r12 for Small Screen devices (like Wildfire)

    Sure, share it here, maybe someone find it useful.

    Great! I didn't really expect that! :) So here it is:

    -Based on r12 (didn't need r15's ones and r19 doesn't have languages I need)
    -Much lighter (1.7 MB I don't know why...)
    -Has a little problem: on numbers screen (when you click 123 to change keyboard to the numbers keys, in "&" key it shows "&a". Weird... but not a problem at all :S)
    · I guess somebody will think it may bee too small, but when you have a small screen, you can't have a big keyboard...

    All credits go to vovkab, and thanks again! :)

    I don't know how useful will be here, in a post.

    I AM SORRY, I FIRST UPLOADED AN APARENTLY NOT SMALLER VERSION. NOW IT'S THE RIGHT ONE.
