[KEYBOARD][THEME][5-ROW][2.0] - Google Android L Keyboard S5 THEMED by kevin_1351 -

Hi guys, I've been working really hard on an s5 Rom port lately. Doing so I came up with the idea to theme the new Android L Keyboard so that it fits better within the S5 System.
I hope that I'm allowed to share this on XDA. I've done the theme myself but of course the app belongs to Google.

I hope you like it.

My previous version had some problems due to a bug in APKTOOL. Now thanks to a lot of research and the kind help of @Shaftamle I've fixed those problems. Also, instead of using Shen Ye's Android L keyboard I used the latest build from the L preview.
I used some smali mods from Shen's app though to make my theme set by default.

(2.0 version)

MD5: d520de7b8ba1beb428154b7928b2f5ca



Changelog:

V2.0.1 - COMING SOON -
  • Removed some extra symbols (that appear twice)
  • Added the full experience to the french azerty keyboard aswell

V2.0
  • FC issue fixed
  • Added number-row
  • Made it much sexier
  • Made the S5 theme deault

V1.0
  • Initial release, a lot of FCs caused by a bug in APKTOOL

Features:
  • Number row with a much slimmer implementation than other mods
  • S5 Material theme
  • Removed the annoying fullscreen mode
  • Much slimmer design (smaller gaps between the rows)
  • Easy installation due to included libs in the apk

Installation:
  1. Remove any existing Google Keyboard installations, if any
  2. Install the apk (must have allowed "unknown sources")
  3. Leave a thanks :)

As already stated, this also features a number row(as per user request), which I borrowed from other modders. The big change I made though, which took me a really long time to figure out, was to make the row much smaller, fontsize-wise. It's much prettier to look at and less bulky compared to the other mods now. If any other devs want to copy this addition, feel free to do so. Just don't forget to credit me :)

I also wanted to add secondary symbols to it, but decided not to do so because of the required amount of smali edits. It would require hours and hours of work to get it working...

I really hope that you'll appreciate this keyboard. I probably won't continue to work on it. I will however update it once Google releases the final version.

It works on all android devices supporting the normal L keyboard.
If you plan on using this in any ROM or use my edits, please ask for permission first. And please do also consider donating if you like this keyboard :), I've spent quite a long time on perfecting it.

Have fun!

If you are so good at theming can you make an Android L theme for stock Samsung keyboard? I love the material look of new Google keyboard but unfortunately Google heyboard doesn't have a romanian dictionary. Thank you!

Great job on the keyboard! Sorry to be that guy but would it be really hard to make the material theme a darker shade? I have another material themed Google keyboard that's darker and I know I should just shut up and go use it then but it doesn't have the awesome number row like this one!

Tapped It!

I probably will never do that. Although I can give you the psd files if you have photoshop. I masked the buttons so that you can choose whatever color you want in notime. After that, you can use the xposed module Resflux to change the color and apply the pngs. Instead of having to recompile it and mod a lot of xmls.

Totally understand. I think I will have to accept the gifts that I have already received and stop asking for more ?

Yeah I was just talking about the standard material keyboard color that I'm sure you have seen but a solid black background for the keys instead with everything else the same would be badass! uploadfromtaptalk1408425688074.jpg

Yeah, I thought so. Not really a fan of that one... Well, I'll do it cause I just have to revert the changes made to those folders. But it won't do it right now.

Meant to ask.....any other themes getting released?

I know the S5 theme is close enough(way better than Samsung gray), but not quite 006779.
The white is the same as blue on mine. Ah well, I'm using the teal anyway.

Anyway, it does work great on a 900P(Sprint).

    I think the developer stopped to develop this keyboard. That's why i decompiled the keyboard for removing secondary symbols but i dont know exactly which file should i edit. Is there anyone has any idea about this?
    I haven't stopped. Soon I will post an update. It will aslo include the new fonts.

    Cya.

    Can you please share a version which supports Chinese input? Original Google keyboard doesn't support Chinese either

    If even Google hasn't done it. How am I, who is not even familiar with chinese, capable of doing that?.....

    Thanks for letting me to edit your work mate :) I have done to edit but still it's not like what i wish. There is one last that i want to edit.

    For example: When i am pressing long to "u", it's coming "7" as a stock but i want it to come "ü" as a stock. It's the same on these letters as well "i", "o". Here is a screenshot for giving idea.

    That's what I stated in the main post. It is possible but I will NOT do it cause it requires major smali editing : /

    thanks for ur work ....plz can enable symbol in ur keyboard???? with wanam xposed it not working

    What do you mean?

    Hopefully I'll get some time this weekend to work on the update. Cya soon.
