Default D2 real keyboard keys now perform functions after update

Had the D2 setup just the way I liked it, then major update. Now some of my factory install Apps don't work (like contacts- WTF?)....anyway.

The biggest problem is my keyboard is starting programs like the music player when I push 'P' and the browser when I push 'B' and so on. Makes typing an email or text a problem. It's almost like key macros.

I turned off auto-correct on the keyboard and it started working OK..then back to being a problem after a few days. I pull the battery and reboot. It's fine for a few days or hours and then returns.

Any suggestions? Where can I turn this 'feature' off for good?

Sounds like a hardware problem. Hopefully flashing back to SBF 2.3.2 and doing the OTA update again will fix it.

It ain't the hardware....go to the settings for the input device and find an item called "Keyboard Shortcuts". Delete them ALL. Wife had same trouble--stupid keyboard driver isn't aware that you're trying to type a message and will go to "gmail" as soon as you press "G", etc. That ought to take care of your problem.
