Hey all. So the HTC Android 2.1 is leaked out now and with it comes a nice new HTC_IME keyboard. If you used this on any older phone then you know it blows the stock keyboard away. I'm guessing this one will be updated for high res screens.
I don't want to type it all in again, but over on XDA I have started gathering some information about this:
How to modify compiled AndroidManifest.xml to downgrade it from 2.1 to 2.0? - xda-developers
I have pulled the HTC_IME.apk from the leaked rom.
I have extracted the AndroidManifest.xml from the file and used a hex editor to change the SDK version from 6 to 5 (We are on 2.0 not 2.1).
The only piece left is to change this Manifest.MF file to have the correct SHA1-Digest for the .xml file, but I'm not sure how to do that. Does anyone have any ideas?
