Default Adding keyboard language to rom

Hi,

I got around to rooting my Desire Z and found an awesome vanilla rom that only supports English and Spanish (Visionary G-Lite).

Visionary also have a rom with HTC sense so i did the following:

I replaced with the contents of the following folders with the same folders from the Virtuous Sense 2.3.3 release:

/system/usr/keylayout
and
/system/usr/keychars
(Not the cleanest way to do it i know)

I then installed Scandinavian keyboard from the market and i was able to get my 'extra' letters working on the physical and on screen keyboard.

One problem though. The letters which are the additional letters can only be typed in as capitals and not lower case while using the physical keyboard.

So i have the functionality, but it would be so annoying to have those 3 letters always capitalized.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Sweet job mate! I can't help unfortunately but maybe a trawl through the G2/Desire Z Development forum on XDA will turn up something? I know I've seen posts there about changing keyboard language/keymaps.

Yea I found a few, but after updating the files they suggested it disabled the keyboard mapping for my device, it just didn't work.

Ah well.

I'm using stock CM7 Stable at the moment and really enjoying it. I also tried the Virtuous Unity Sense 2.3 rom (The G-Lite rom is by Virtuous i was spelling it wrong above hehe) and it's really quite good as well.

I'm very pleased with the rooted Desire Z
