Surprised Ok - I messed up, how do I fix this

So I was exploring the option of using the 2.1 keyboard on my 2.2 updated X, because the 2.1 has the double . for , and i REALLY missed it
So i uninstalled the 2.2 multitouch, and installed a "ported" copy of the droid X 2.1 keyboard.
But it would not install - so i figured the system keyboard was preventing it. I used titanium to make a backup, and then uninstalled the 2.2 keyboard, and used files to install the port.
worked ok, except that the listing in keyboards showed up under the wii mote ime. and when you added sound it would quickly FC. I can type with it, but the letters are very small. Fine, I saw a spot that had the "offical" 2.1 last night in the bloatware thread.
same problems. keys are small and FC's on volume.
So I reboot the phone to solve it, and nothing still issues.
Since then I decided I would let someone who knows what theyre doing work this out, but until then, I cant get the 2.2 back on.
I have the file saved on the SD card. Ive used supermanager to place it back into the system/app/latinime.apk location but after a reboot, now I have no keyboards (except the wiimoteime)
I tried installing it with supermanager, but that doesnt really do anything, and when i try installing it from "files" it says "Application not installed"

Someone with some keyboard expertise want to help me out pls
I would LOVE 2.1, but Ill settle with just getting 2.2 back on.

I'm using ultra keyboard for now, and although its okay, I'd like either 2.1 or 2.2 back. Its just faster.

You're going to have to find a DL of a 2.2 Fresh Install keyboard. There is no SBF for 2.2 as of now, and You really don't want to brick your phone over that.

I'll see if I can pull my keyboard apk tomm. But i can't give any guarantees.

is the fresh install different than that of the 2.2 system app found here?
Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire
Cause I already have that. I think its something about how the file is being put in, it needs an installer or something, you cant just drop it into /system/app/ and have it work, ive tried

Found this file "latinIME.odex" and added that to my /system/app/ folder and it did nothing
I was hoping for some satisfaction.

Is there something Im missing? Shouldnt having the apk and odex be enough, or does it need to be installed through the system? If so, how can I do that since when i do, it says "application not installed"
