    Note, this replaces the MT keyboard. There's a file at the bottom to revert if you do not like the new keyboard :)

    Title says it all, I guess. Flash with Clockwork Recovery or ROM manager. Don't need to wipe, mount, or anything.

    Be sure to go to settings, keyboard, android keyboard, input languages, and CHECK English :D

    I installed it. Seems nice so far. It totally replaced my multi-touch keyboard. I no longer see it offered in my settings. I didn't know it would be overwritten. I didn't even have time to say goodbye. :(

    There's no way to have a choice of them both, is there?

    Sorry, no choice :(

    I put up a file to restore the MT keyboard though.


    Also, those of you with tiny keyboard, you didn't happen to mod your LCD density, did you?

    I tried flashing this but got taken to SBF bootloader....should I have deleted some files before flashing?

    Nevermind, something wrong with my Rom Manager app.... 2nd time this has happened w/ a different rom. ($hit!) Bootstrap is the ticket.

    I had LCD density at 210. Changed it to 240 and it makes no difference. Going to try installing again with LCD at 240 from the start to see if that helps.

    edit: No luck. I'm no expert, but should wiping cache help at all?

    another question for you with the tiny keyboards, do you have the NexTheme or REVOlution fonts installed?

    That, I believe, is the source of the issue.

    No themes. Vanilla ApeX 1.0.2

    Something to do with the 2.3.15 version maybe?:thinking:

    I'm running Fission right today and I installed this version (and the droid-life version) and they're both super small.

    No LCD changes or font changes.

    Thanks Fab!
