    To the Android Keyboard?

    Every time I re-boot my phone, it automatically changes the default keyboard to the Android Keyboard (Which was orginally the GingerBread Keyboard). How do I stop it from doing this?

    Before flashing MIUI use 7zip to delete what you dont need...

    Don't extract the zip. Just open it.

    Okay, so I have to re-flash the ROM, but what is "7zip" and how is it used? On the phone? On the PC?

    I don't say this often as its usually subjective, but in this case your opinion is wrong :)

    You cannot create .rar files in 7zip. Only zips. .rar archives are far superior .zip archives as its a better compression method, better way to split files over multiple zips or rars (although why you would create zips by choice if you didnt have to is beyond me).

    So I just download 7-Zip, and use it on the PC to uninstall the Android Keyboard?

    Oh, okay. So the ROM zip file is located somewhere on the phones memory which I'll be viewing via the PC?

    I have this problem with Cyanogen 7. I have Swype and SlideIt and often swop between the two. I also have an Android keyboard (that's how it's labelled) which was pre- installed on the rom. Every time I switch off or reboot, all my choices are unticked and only the pre installed one works.It's so annoying.
    When I first rooted this phone, We did a factory reset and then we created a rom at Modaco, but because I used SlidIt we didn't include a keyboard. Then of course, we couldn't set up the phone or install anything, because we hadn't got a keyboard to enter the set up info.WE had to start again to include a keyboard.
    So I guess they need a built in keyboard of some sorts, but I'd prefer one that wasn't so demanding!

    It's the Rom file that you downloaded off the interwebz.
