GS4 keyboard with Autocorrect

So I got the S4 keyboard working with autocorrect by installing the apk from the international edition after making a change to /system/csc/feature.xml.

One thing I've noticed is that the suggestions that are used for the autocorrect are slow to populate. I can actually type faster than the suggestions so if you hit the space button too quick it will change your word to something you most likely do not want.

I'm hoping that someone might be able to figure out what is causing the lag or if maybe it was something I modified with the ROM that I am running.

Anyways, just flash the zip and go into the predictive text settings to enable autocorrect.

Maybe I'll try this when a mirror is made. Not a fan on that website.

Seems to be too much of a hassle to download from the phone.

I flashed this zip. I now have the option to turn on "Auto Replacement" but even though it is turned on, it doesn't work. Am i missing something? Am i supposed to edit the /system/csc/feature.xml file also? I just assumed that was taken care of in the zip.

Hmm, if that is showing then feature.xml was changed. I may have included in the wrong apk in the zip. Let me test it again...

EDIT: I just flashed the zip again and autocorrect is working for me. I should've mentioned that this is for deodexed ROMs. Are you on an odexed ROM still? If you are, just delete the SamungIME.odex and ResourceManager.odex from /system/app/.

That might be it... i'm still odexed. So i was able to delete SamsungIME.odex, but there is no ResourceManager.odex in my /system/app/ folder. Only a ResourceManager.apk. Is that what you meant?

OK, it's working for me now too. But i also have the lag. It's not a lot of lag but just enough that i have to consciously slow down at the end of each word for half a second

Yeah, very annoying for sure. I cannot figure out if something is wrong or if it's just poor coding. Maybe I'll throw a post out in the international forum.

Seems normal to me.

Are you a fast typer? The letters show up fast, no lag there. The lag is in the suggestions. For instance, if i type "L-E-T-S" as fast as i normally do and then press space, it changes my word to "LET" (Instead of LET'S) because it hasn't registered my "S" yet. Also, if i type "I-T-S" i would expect it to change to IT'S (with an apostrophe), but it's so slow that by the time i typed ITS, the suggestions only registered the "I" and it changes my word from "ITS" to just "I".


Hope that makes sense

For me it's unusable unless I deliberately slow down my typing. Otherwise what I type is replaced with words that don't make any sense.

That's exactly what happens to me.

Care to share?, If the OP doesn't mind.

I certainly don't care, my main reason for posting this was to get the lag fixed.

Yes, please share! Really would like this. Love the look of stock keyboard with the number row but really missing the auto correct functionality!

    I've been all over the Google keyboard options a bunch of times I dont see anywhere to add a number row. Where is this option?

    Sent from my SCH-I545 using xda app-developers app

    Under the Google keyboard settings, go to advanced settings, custom input styles, add style, then select English (US) and PC as the layout. Once you do this, go back to the main keyboard settings and then input languages. Uncheck use system language and then check the English (PC).

    I think that's how I did it if I remember correctly, but it made it completely unusable. Very tiny keys :(

    EDIT: actually, I think once you add the custom input style, it will ask you if you want to switch to it. If you want to disable it again, you can go back to the input languages and turn it back to the default English (US)

    Any progress with a working and non-lagging version? We REALLY need auto-correct working because the stock keyboard is nice!
