    Ok I'm not overly techy on this Android stuff but I've just done a system software update to software number 2.09.405.8 and after the update the HTC_IME mod keyboard was constantly going into force close so I unchecked to use the standard keyboard than checked to use the HTC_IME mod again and its having no effect just using the standard keyboard now don't seem to be able to get HTC_IME mod back.

    Has anyone else had this problem and managed to fix it? Just think HTC_IME mod is that nit better

    Try using another kb like SlideIT or swiftkey as they both have Mike buttons

    Hi Darqadius,

    Do you have a link to get the latest version I can only find posts with links from 2009 so surely they must be older versions

    Further to this doesn't matter which different keyboard I try to install, it appears in my keyboard settings I tick to use it but my keyboard doesn't change just the bog standard HTC one, gutted 'cos I loved the IME Mod

    I been having the exact same problem with all my downloaded keyboards.

    I tick in the settings but I can only get the stock standard keyboard.

    Friggin annoying.

    I think this is what you are looking for http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/142856-voice-text-2-2-a.html

    Are we all forgetting you need to long press in a text input box to pop up the keyboard selection screen.

    Arh yes, I was forgetting about the long press that might be the answer, will try it tonight when I've downloaded it again

    Didn't pick up on the other thread as I wasn't really thinking voice 2 text I just love this keyboard as a keyboard

    I recommend you try the custom keyboard from the link below. It's the same custom keyboard you like but with the option to change the colours.


    Select hi res kitchen, create a username etc and be sure to select the froyo version (v27) when creating.

    Here's mine, created to fit in with the sense colours:

    Just incase you don't know there is no need to be rooted to do this :cool:

    I'm finding HTC IME mod baggy in a browser. Portrait is a bit better. Does anyone know if its possible to get the standard HTC ime.apk from anywhere?

    hey downloaded the htc ime for froyo

    does the desire always need to be connected to the internet to send a text using the mic icon

    cus i've pressed it offline (no wifi on/no mobile internet/3g on) and get this error:

    problem connecting to the network

    The voice recognition does require you to be connected because all the processing of your voice is done on googles servers not the phone.

    so to make this absolutely clear

    to even just send a text to a friend > i HAVE to be connected to the internet?

    be it wifi or 3g

    Only if you want to speak the text instead of typing

    Bah. The original mod keyboard seems to be installed as part of the ROM, so it just prompts to uninstall the old version (Which I cant).

    Anyone know a way around this?
