Default keyboard won't go away

    Have been using Graffiti on my Hero-of-eBay and suddenly it is unobtainable, being replaced by the default keyboard. Tried to activate installed Swype and it wouldn't stick either. Uninstalled Graffiti and reinstalled it but it still doesn't show. Cold rebooted in between as well...

    Is this common? It's certainly irritating!

    Have you installed any other keyboards? Has the phone been rooted, maybe by the previous owner?

    RyanB, yes the phone is rooted, by me. I have installed many keyboards and removed them all bar Graffiti (ex Palm-person) and Swype. Neither is now available.

    This may be muddying the waters, but this may be related to my Launcher problem

    By chance, I came across the answer: long press on the input area and select 'Input method' from the resulting menu, then select (in my case) Graffiti. Now the keyboards swap as they should.

    Hope that helps anyone who faces this quirk in the future.

    Strange that you did that, and it stayed that way. I do that all the time, the setting will stay that way( I use iphone emulator), for a while, til I reboot. I've used clockwork to fix permissions( running cyanogenmod 6) , and it will always revert back. I would love to make iphone keyboard a system app, and make the android keyboard a user app, but I am scared of the ramifications. Has anyone tried this?
