    I rooted my phone to delete the preinstalled junk apps that I didn't want. I made sure that I wasn't deleting anything that might mess my phone up. However, I accidentally deleted ""
    The keyboard still works fine. However, now whenever I try to do anything on my phone this message pops up:
    The application Android keyboard (process has stopped unexpectedly.
    Please try again."
    I then have to select "Force Close" and then the phone works fine.
    Is there anyway I can download this to replace what I deleted?

    Well I have downloaded the latinIME.apk (which is what I deleted [its the on screen keyboard]) but now I am having a problem getting it into the system/app folder. I tried using root explorer but it didnt work. I currently have froyo 2.2 on my phone.
    I would appreciate it greatly if anyone could explain to me how to use SDK manager to move latinIME.apk from my sd card to system/app. I have been searching all day and have yet to figure it out.
    I disabled the android keyboard so the pop-up doesn't come up anymore but I would like to have my on screen keyboard back.
    Help please? :)

    I tried Root Explorer at one time when I deleted virgin_live.apk to move it back to /system/apps and it worked for me. I don't know why it's not working for you.

    i would simply download the honeycomb keyboard and move on
  4. Last I checked, Swype's beta was still open if you would like another option. Personally, I couldn't go back to the stock keyboard now.
