I remember seeing someone wanting a green highlight , multi touch keyboard. So, I made it. Had to change the green dot to blue, so it would look better
I take no credit for making the keyboard work for our devices. I also didn't come up with the fix for the & key.

Thanks goes to zack.xtr we now have a WORKING black multi-touch keyboard. Want to also thank bmtdan for showing me zack.xtr's post. Black keyboard is attached, all credit goes to zack.xtr.
Just follow install instructions below.

Updated all with fixed "<" key

So this will allow us to type faster? thats what imtrying to do on mine now and it sucks for that. I mean REALLY sucks

This is just a small mod someone posted they wanted, when the keyboard was first released, for Evo. They wanted the highlight to be green, so I made it green. As far as speed, I can't increase anything to make you type faster. In my opinion I type faster on this key board with less mistakes.

Yea i noticed that as well, and if its possible, can i ask for a small persona change to it? Id do it myself but have no idea how :( Id love the highlight color to be blood red, im trying to make a theme for my phone with that color.

and by the way, i took HTML and this looks a lot like it, if you want send me the files via PM and ill see if i can work on it. I CAN'T guarantee because i dont know how to test it.

So you want the buttens and background black... what xml file... lol this is going to take a bit to find the right file...

I'm trying to make the buttons and background black. It's my understanding (from modding the Omnia keyboard, on windows mobile) that xml files control the color of the letter on the keyboard. If it is like Windows, then there is a string in one of the xml documents. Inside the apk there are different xml documents, just can't figure the right one out, and what would control what.

I downloaded this through my phone, but it doesn't install. Says something about "no program to open this file". Is this supposed to install as simply as other apk's, or am I going about this wrong? I would love to have haptic feedback within the multitouch keyboard if possible.

thanks

    The keyboards are awesome, thanks!

    Don't really want to nitpick or anything, but could you change the shade of green (in the keyboards that use green highlights) to more of a android/darker green instead of the lime green?

    Here's the "sense green hightlight you wanted need someone to post a screen shot for me. I'm on night cm6, so I can't
