SIP Hook v1.6

Idea:
I've made this service especially for X1 chiefs and users who use EzInput keyboards. As you know, default SIP menu shows only full QWERTY keyboard in list. This application fixes this problem and adds two more keyboards.
In HTC devices this is realized in touchscreen driver.

Screenshots are better than words:)

Compatibility: WM6.1/6.5/6.5.x with EzInput

ET9Filter
That's IME (Input Method Editor) that fixes IMEEngine-Xperia keyboard incompatibility.
Limitations: XT9 doesn't work when you type on hardware keyboard.
Benefits: IMEEngine WON'T break hardware keys (for example, if you press FN+1 without my IME you'll get "!". With it you'll get "1" as it should be)
Installing: ONLY MANUAL
1) Make sure you really have IMEEngine in your ROM. Check if \Windows\et9ime.dll exists.
2) Copy et9filter.dll to \Windows\
3) Apply *.reg
Only for cooks/chiefs/experienced users. Make a system backup before trying!

New release:
14.06 (ET9Filter_new_14_06.zip):
Supports dead keys for some languages
Make sure you have "{0x7A 0x7A 0x00 0x00 0x00 0xff} // DKeys - 0x7A" in IME_Engine's kmap
Also supports contact's name prediction (it can be buggy, beware). Disabled by default, but you can enable it in app.reg.


If you don't have IME_Engine in your ROM, keyboards won't work.
Feel free to use these services in your ROM

If you have no IME_Engine installed (or integrated in ROM) this won't help you. I haven't seen any rom for x1 with it (excluding my own russian rom)

Thanks for the tools. It's a MUST tools for X1 using EZInput. (Not sure why it's not need for other HTC device like Topaz)

I've installed your app on my x1 with Agent's Valkyrie ROM and I seem not to see the menu to select the other keyboard views... :/ Any help? Thanks in advance...

chichoko, this app simply changes HKLM\Software\HTC\ezsip\BioToShowMenu to 1. EzSipService gets notification about this changing and shows menu.

Aahh didnt know that.. although I think you've pointed it out in your first post :eek: Anyway I can change views using the registry in 6.5.x? I read someone made it in the Valkyrie thread but I forgot to ask him for info :(

Can you tell me who or how? I would like a 6.5.X ROM, but I won't flash one without this info.
