    I was just about to post this. I have it running but its a little small and its harder for me to type in landscape because of the location of the bottom row. Aslo no more double tap space bar to insert period. Ill probably get used to it... i hope[​IMG][​IMG]

    Remember to install it through recovery, it's a .zip not an APK

    I assume its not just me with the tiny keyboard right? Also it seems like the only words it is prediciting are ones i prsviously added to my user dictionary, not actual english words.

    Droid2 owners, don't waste your time with the launcher. Phone button on launcher won't work. I have tried the keyboard and it is half size. Need to wait for a fix.

    I'm confused, is it supposed to be so tiny? I installed on my droid x and it is unrealistically small. However, it is surprisingly accurate considering it's size. Is it a faulty file or a bug or is this really the size of the new android keypad?

    That's not the correct size although its a known issue. You can download an lcd density changer from the marketplace and use it to change your density to 280 and then back to 240. This will fix the size issue however it will need to be done after every reboot.

    Any idea when they'll be a permanent fix? I don't know if I like the keyboard enough to have to change the lcd density everytime my phone restarts.
