    Working fine for me. Not sure if that's b/c I'm on Myn's 2.2 which was the intended port. He did say it should work on all Roms but I've only tested it on my own so far.

    Just tried it out w/ Lou's Senseless Revolution ROM. Works great in portrait and landscape. My only complaint is the spacebar is easy to miss. I keep hitting the V and B keys, but otherwise its great.

    I've got it running just fine w/ Virtuous 3.1... Multi-touch and everything. The only thing that I haven't found is the smiley key.

    I just flashed Skyraider 3.5, and it is included in the ROM. Works really great so far, although the '&' key is messed up, but there is a fix. It works, just says '&amp' on the key.

    Looks cool except it doesnt have a Swype type feature, making it useless.

    Not rooted. Downloaded zip and extracted apk then drag and drop!! Easy as can be and I like it much better than the 2.1 version. I really like the auto correct feature and the voice recognition seems better. No luck on smiley face ?? Wonder whats up with that??

    I am by no means an expert but just in case someone who is more of a noob than me tries this--make sure you backup all your data first and then it is merely a matter of dropping it into your sd card--helps if you have a file manager installed--then just use the "open app manager" feature and hit install--its that easy.

    Haven't used a whole lot yet, and I haven't used stock keyboard in ages because I prefer SwiftKey or Swype, but so far it is very comparable to Swiftkey in its accuracy and prediction.

    I'm happy to see some of the non-rooted guys are able to install the keyboard, great job!

    So, I really like this keyboard, but I'm a little confused still as to what is so groundbreaking about it? I notice that its really crisp and seems to be very quick. But what else is super awesome about it?

    (don't get me wrong, I like it a lot. I just want to be sure I'm seeing everything special about it so I can get the most out of it)

    I like this keyboard. I like the fact that the symbols are at the top too and I type more accurately with this keyboard than others. Other than that nothing super special.
