    So I was wondering if anyone has been able to load the Android Keyboard (AOSP?) on their phone running GB. I like this keyboard for a number of reasons, but mainly the fact that it auto-corrects some words automatically that the multi-touch keyboard does not for some reason.

    For example:

    - If I type im, it auto corrects it to I'm.
    - If I type wer, it auto corrects it to we're.
    - If I type il, it auto corrects it to I'll.

    I know most of you think this might be a bit silly, but I got used to this keyboard and typing this way before GB, and believe it or not these little shortcuts allow you to type/text a lot faster on the phone.

    Last night I flashed my phone from CM4DX back to Official GB, and I tried flashing the keyboard being used with CM7 (Android Keyboard) but it won't work on GB. Not only does it not work, but I have now lost the Multi Touch keyboard and I can't seem to get it back unless I do a factory reset. I'm currently using Swiftkey X, but I still don't like it as much as the original Android Keyboard.

    If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks to a member on another forum I found a solution to my problem. In the market there is a free keyboard called "Keyboard from Android 2.3" by Steven Lin which does everything the original Android keyboard does.

    I'm now a happy camper! :D
