    I love the white keyboard seen on the D2 and know it can be ported to the D1 but I think I understand you have to have select ROMs and they must be themed. True?

    Well, anyone have the D2 running on a D1 and just have a simple vanilla rooted ROM - maybe FRG01b or FRG22D?

    I used it at one point but it screwed up using shift on the hardware keyboard for somethings. If someone has put out a fixed version I would use it again.

    got it working.. using the "old" "manual" mthod

    1. backup my ROM (nandroid)
    2. backup (zipped) system/lib/libjni_latinime.so with root explorer
    3. sent the apk to gmail and then installed apk
    4. copy/paste new libjni_latinime.so in place over old (remount as r/w with root explorer)
    5. installed green highlight theme .zip via recovery (found in that thread as the red is a bit harsh)
    6. settings > lang & keyboard > selected the multi-touch keyboard

    so, it seems to work. I do have the choice, using the "manual" method in that thread, to select stock keyboard or multi-touch. but I love that this multi-touch as it looks way better, seems snappier, faster, more accurate, nice colors, I do have multi touch ability now (I can touch two or more spaces on the screen and the screen registers two or more individual fingers). I did try to select the stock keyboard and did have some FC issues others reported.. but not sure I will even go back though. Also, the manual method does allow to keep the stock, so I should be able to roll back.

    that thread has a newer verison4 out, maybe you had an earlier version?

    my shift key and some of the other key oddities others list - alt and caps keys sticking on - seem to work as expected for me.

    You might want to try the swype beta, it looks good, similar the D2 color wise. I had it but uninstalled because I was having problems with the voice input not functioning properly and causing static on the phone. The word predictions are sick! After a few uses it becomes very smart. You don't need root either. I'm using BBv.4 but its for everyone. The X keyboard was ok ported too but it only works on 2.1. The voice recognitions were right on with it. I have the swype beta apk. If you want or it might still be in the Market, I'm not sure if its still supported or when it expires.

    I looked into it one time, but they have a closed beta right now so this will work for me.

    How about the Swiftkey Beta, I have an apk. For it also, its predictions ate out of this world and it looks good too, similar to these. I had voice problems with it also so that could be Rom related. If you want it let me know, I think it still works, might be on the Market also.

    been on the multi touch keyboard for a while now, used it with bb 0.4, cm rc3, cm 6, ud8, and lfy with none of them having problems with the physical keyboard.

    to the OP, do a nandroid backup of your system, install the keyboard, if you dont like it boot into recovery and restore. :D
