    Does anyone know where I can find the HTC_IME Keyboard with arrows that works with MIUI. Its the same one found on Myn's page over at XDA. I'm trying to install it in MIUI using the apk but it doesn't work. I was able to install other HTC_IME apks without issue. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    Have you tried copy and pasting it into /system/app with root explorer? Then reboot. I did this with a couple of apks that wouldn't install the normal way.
    Be sure to make a nandroid before trying this.

    Would the fact that the HTC_IME keyboard is coded for Sense cause it to conflict or not work with an AOSP Rom?

    Ok, so I tried the copy and paste method via root explorer. I was able to move the file and set the permissions within system/app folder. I rebooted then tried changing the keyboard using the long press method to the htc keyboard. Within a few seconds I get a FC message. Any ideas?

    If I had to guess, the FC probably comes from the fact that it is a Sense-based keyboard. Honestly, this is the 1 thing that keeps me from moving to an AOSP based rom - I've got fat thumbs and the arrows make fixing mistakes easier.

    I love MIUI and have tried it on several occasions but keep going back because I can't find a similar keyboard alternative for AOSP.

    That's what I was thinking but there are version of the htc keyboard without arrows that work on miui.

    Do you happen to have a link(s)? I've looked around for a keyboard with arrows to try and haven't been able to find one I like.

    Have you tried a GB keyboard? I do not have a link, but the one included in Evervolv allows you to slide to where you want to correct once you try and select a letter to change. Thus if the cursor is not in the right place, you can slide to the right location to make the change.

    I'm sure I've tried a GB keyboard (maybe) as I've tried MIUI and another AOSP rom on several occasions but didn't know about that slide functionality.

    As I'm not too savvy in pulling apart roms, any freestanding keyboards you know of that don't require ripping it from a rom and have the functionality you're talking about?

    none that I am aware of, but I have not looked into it too much. I have been happy with the one the rom came with and when on Sense roms have used swype more than any other ones. Would like to get swype on a GB rom.

    This seems to only work with Sense:
