    1. First you need root your phone ex. with z4root (go to google)
    2. Install some manager with root acces ex. Super Manager
    3.This is default file /system/usr/keylayout/qwerty.kl with key mapping but in my milestone 2 it was another with name umts_milestone2-keypad.kl
    4.We have to replace Y and Z in this file.
    5.ATTENTION!!! IF you copy file and then paste and raplace it with edited file it my have difrent acces permission so be sure that this file has rw-r--r-- If you dont set first rw like ---rwxrwx phone won't be able to read file and all buttons won't be working(only power will work)ATTENTION!!
    6.Reboot phone

    Yes i know but i was looking for solving that problem for couple hours and this is only topic about it so for others who will be looking i posted reply.

    I must admit that best way is replace the files in this folders
    system/usr/keychars
    system/usr/keylayout
    with files from other device which work ok
    because edditing all keys which don't work as they should is hard z/y is not only problem

    I fix this problem by going to keyboard settings and select every language then went to the keyboard and scroll through the languages then went back to keyboard settings and only selected English and the y and z key were back to normal
