I quoted this to bring up the HTC IME issues. I've searched and searched but havent found a solution.

Yeah, I have searched as well, sometimes search can't find things even if they have been asked before. Search is not perfect, nor the person doing the searching. It brings up so much junk sometimes its hard to sift through it all.

An edit to the bluetooth issues mentioned also. The phone will not ring through the car, but the phone lights up. Try to answer the phone and you can't hear it, try to disconnect it from the car and it hangs up the phone. I'm hoping I can just flash the official build ROM I have, and still retain root. Not sure I can do that or not.

Fine... here goes.. with the HTC_IME there are two side effects to the hardware keyboard, I will outline these two issues and the workarounds that have been discovered for them.

1. It auto-corrects for the hardware keyboard, the annoying black suggestions.
The solution - pressing the menu button twice when the pop ups appear. BANG!

2. Sometimes the hardware keyboard does not auto capitalize or punctuate (also the right shift/alt keys stop working as expected).
The solution - tap once inside the text box (you may need to follow this with the solution to problem #1, as the suggestions often pop back up) this will bring it back to normal.

EDIT - and there have been threads about this before, mostly in the general Dream forum - which is the proper place for this.

I'm a bit confused. I'm still on 3.6.5 because I read about the force close issue with the cameras and decided not to upgrade. Apparently, I had not tested my cameras well enough on 3.6.5 though. I get force closes when I try to launch either one of them. I just restored my 3.6.5 nandroid backup from yesterday and the cameras still don't work.

I understand that people have fixed the cameras in 3.6.6 by pushing the camera from 3.6.5 , but what if the cameras are broken in 3.6.5?
Cameras worked fine for me in 3.6.5, I used both several times. So it looks like you need to run fix_permissions in the recovery console or need to do a wipe and flash of 3.6.5 again if it doesn't fix it.

Personally, I would wipe and flash 3.6.6 and then push the camera.apk from 3.6.5

    This thread is CLOSED!!!!!
    Redirect all your ROM ONLY QUESTIONS in the new thread:
    The problem with the Exchange support in the Sapphire Mail app is that it requires the entire custom HTC version of the core Android framework. The same goes for the HTC Dialer. I'd rather keep the open-source version, since the source code changes that HTC has made to the core are not publicly available.
    what do you mean by the camera button force closes, like to take a picture?

    Just click the trackball instead of the camera button in the Camera app to take a picture.
    Cyan, I love your work. One question though. I cannot get my Bluetooth to work anymore on my BlueAnt since the last three builds. Anyone got any suggestions on how to make it work?
